The sale of voice over internet protocol (VoIP) technology to service providers is booming, with consumers and small offices helping to drive the trend to next generation voice services.

Analyst Infonetics Research said worldwide sales of VoIP kit to carriers jumped 32% between 2005 and 2006, to reach $3.3bn (£1.73bn).

Infonetics expects the service provider next generation voice equipment market to more than double between 2006 and 2010, when it will reach $6.9bn worldwide.

Infonetics analyst Stéphane Téral said, "The five-year outlook for the overall market looks good, pointing to a sustainable investment cycle."

Infonetics predicts that the number of worldwide residential and SoHo VoIP subscribers will nearly quadruple between 2006 to 2010.
