The forced march to VoIP

People have been debating the benefits of VoIP for some time – but all of that doesn’t matter. Says guest columnist Edward Horrell, the vendors are moving their voice systems to VoIP regardless, and enterprise users will be forced, if necessary, to move with them. Resistance is futile.
