Market Trends

Without a doubt, the VoIP trend continues to grow in multiple sectors. If VoIP began as a transport method for many carriers, those same operators today are asking how they can build a subscriber and enterprise customer base in the face of rising VoIP competition.

Given the explosion of VoIP service providers, today's carrier must devise strategies to quickly address the growing threat. True, today's total fixed line subscriptions number an impressive 1.5 Billion. But that total has remained relatively static ("Hot Telecom 2006"). By contrast, worldwide VoIP subscriptions at the end of FY'05 were only 24 million, but grew almost 65% for the year. Remarkably, IP retail telephony revenues grew a full 89% in '05 ("Point Topic 2006"). In the business sector, IPBX orders and installations are growing briskly. In the US alone, IPBX installation will outpace traditional PBX installs in the next 6 months, and close in on the $4 billion revenue mark ("TIA; Infotech"). In this shifting landscape, traditional telecoms are facing opposing forces: the desire to retain and capture new customers by entering the VoIP space, and the complexity of creating an end to end VoIP service offering including all the operational support systems such as billing and provisioning.

According to IDT CS Senior Vice President Robby Schiff, "we found that the simple answer to the carriers' paradox is a complete hosted VoIP solution, where the carrier does not have to build a new phone service from the ground up thus avoiding CapEx, engineering and other business process challenges associated with a new service." Furthermore, hosted solutions enable operators to quickly enter markets while the burdens and risks are primarily shouldered by the hosted service provider. Adds Schiff, "this analysis continues to be proven out."

Since the summer, when IDT began its worldwide rollout of hosted VoIP solutions, the sales force has filled the pipeline with dozens of qualified opportunities. As the trend toward VoIP progresses with no halt in sight, it is clearly those operators that understand how to play in the space while minimizing their exposure who will truly reap the rewards that VoIP has to offer.

Getting To Know Us:
Meet Max Silbershatz

Tell us a little about your role.
As VP of Business Development, my role is to work with carriers worldwide. I help them to identify which of our VoIP solutions would best enable them to capture new customers, increase customer Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) and decrease churn.

Now that IDT and Net2Phone have merged, tell us about what new products are available.
IDT offers its customers a robust suite of VoIP solutions for every regional and demographic market segment. Our VoiceLine broadband telephony service is a full Class 5 phone line replacement solution for the residential and SOHO market. For the Small to Medium enterprise market, we have the VoiceDirector full-featured IP PBX and VoiceAccess VoIP trunking solutions. We also enable partners to offer more traditional products, such as calling cards and call shop solutions.

Would you share with us a success story?
Gladly. We have successfully deployed services with carriers worldwide, including: The Caribbean, Philippines, Colombia, Brazil, in the Mideast and many more.

About two years ago, we launched calling card services with Cable & Wireless in the Cayman Islands. As a result of the businesses' success, C&W expanded their product set to include a Broadband Telephony solution, branded "NetSpeak". C&W's objective for this service was to sell end users a bundle of voice and data services which enabled C&W to differentiate their offerings from competitors. The voice component included an unlimited calling plan and an international phone number, all for a fixed monthly price. C&W was able to increase their customer ARPU due to the fixed monthly price of the service. The program was so successful that we now serve all 13 Caribbean territories of C&W. To see the product "live," visit www.netspeak.com.

What does IDT offer in the converged space?
We offer a Fixed to Mobile Convergence (FMC) solution particularly attractive to mobile carriers. The solution helps mobile carriers create a competitive advantage and capture new market share from fixed line providers. The solution can be deployed in phases. Carriers can offer dual mode WIFI/Mobile phones as well as international DIDs to subscribers with existing mobile phones.

How can companies learn more about these opportunities?
If you would like to learn more about our services, please contact your local IDT account representative to schedule an introductory call with our team.
