The global hosted Internet protocol (IP) telephony and unified communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) market is maturing as businesses of all sizes and industry sectors increasingly move their communications and collaboration solutions to the cloud. An abundance of service provider solutions tailored for different business and end-user requirements, as well as growing customer awareness of the benefits of cloud communications, are driving accelerated hosted IP telephony and UCaaS adoption around the world. A global 2019 Frost & Sullivan survey of IT and telecom decision makers reveals that 40 percent of businesses using enterprise IP telephony have already moved part or all of their solutions to the cloud and another 46 percent plan to do so in the next two years.
