It's prediction time, so here goes: 2005 will be the year of VoIP. Last year laid the foundation, with a slew of product releases and service announcements that put VoIP within the reach of any business. Whether you run a small business network, or a globe-spanning one, the benefits are substantial.

What kind of benefits? How about a drastically reduced telecommunications budget? How about big savings in network upkeep, troubleshooting, and maintenance, because you can run one converged network, not two separate ones? How about big ROI on applications that tap into the convergence of voice and data?

For all these reasons, VoIP will be taking off this year. So if you've been considering VoIP, now is the time to make the move. And if you haven't been considering it, now is the time to look into it.

And when you're looking for help with VoIP, I'll have it for you in Networking Pipeline. You'll find beefed-up VoIP coverage this year, with everything from the latest news, to hands-on advice, to product reviews, to strategic roadmaps.
