According to the In-Stat research titled "The Business of Mobile VoIP: IP Voice Communications in the Enterprise," business mobile VoIP users will continue to rise and will reach about 83 million by 2015. Mobile VoIP enables IP-based calls from a mobile handset via broadband connection3G, EDGE, WiFI and GPRS.

"There are several reasons why adoption of mobile VoIP makes sense," said Amy Cravens, senior analyst at In-Stat. "Some of these include the ability to take the desktop phone experience with you, the ability to utilize the benefits of IP-based communication features, a cheaper international long-distance cost, an easy implementation path and better indoor coverage where cellphone reception has historically been poor."

In-Stat also found that business mobile VoIP users will increase tenfold over the next five years, the majority of which will be IP PBX users. Mobile operators are also increasingly embracing mobile VoIP due to rising demand. Additionally, hotspots open the potential for using VoIP over WiFi as more of a mobile service rather than a residential or business service.
