Service providers, facing falling revenues from traditional phone services, are turning to VoIP to increase their revenues, according to a new report from Infonetics Research.

Eight-three percent of the North American, European, Asia Pacific, and Central and Latin American service providers in the study said that the need to generate new revenue is the primary reason they are migrating circuit-switched voice networks to packet networks. In particular, they hope the launch of new applications and services via VoIP will bring in additional revenue.

The study also found that:

* The service providers' main barrier to using VoIP is potential problems with equipment interoperability
