VoIP, Comm Eating Enterprise Bandwidth

[qi:90] VoIP and other Communications technologies are the main driver of bandwidth consumption in the enterprise, according to a survey conducted by Network General, a QoS company. Nearly 80 percent of respondents expect the network traffic from all their communications applications to increase during the next 12 months.

This should be good news for companies selling hardware to the enterprises, with Cisco Systems (CSCO) as one of the primary beneficiaries since they sell everything from switches to PBX systems to handsets and wireless infrastructure devices.
