NextiraOne has reported that its sales of converged comms solutions in new installations outstripped those of conventional voice telephony for the first time in the second quarter of 2004.

The integrator of converged IP communications said that the quarter marked the inflection point between the new class of technology and its older counterpart.

"This is the death knell for traditional voice telephony," said Christophe Siraudeau, NextiraOne's business line director for IP communications. "2004 is the breakthrough year for converged communications. Although many customers continue to get great value from existing investments in traditional voice networks, adoption of this new class is rapid. Enterprises have been quick to recognise the financial and productivity benefits of this new technology."

Further evidence of the shift, said NextiraOne, came from reports that traditionally early adopters of technology such as finance had now shifted almost entirely to converged solutions for new installations.
