As information technology professionals, we are constantly bombarded with new products and ideas claiming to be revolutionary. And for a brief amount of time, a few of these technologies seem to grab all the headlines, in trade magazines, on tech sites and at industry conferences. The technology darling of late is VoIP. Short for Voice over IP, you've likely come across it, probably considered it and possibly deployed it. The hype, deservedly so, is reaching a crescendo as excess bandwidth, improved software and better hardware drive this technology forward. For the right situations, it's a truly wonderful solution. Lower phone bills, virtual offices, centralized management and rapid deployment are just a few of the benefits. And the success of companies such as Vonage and Skype, combined with the growth of wireless networks will move this technology from enterprises to smaller businesses and the SOHO market. Unfortunately, new technologies bring new security concerns.

It is good analysis of apps like Skype and Vonage (even if it did not become as famous as the first one).
