Technologies have evolved sufficiently for Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) to represent a cost effective way for small- and medium-sized cablecos to offer telephony services to their customers, members of the Canadian Cable Systems Alliance (CCSA) were told last week. At the CCSA annual meeting in Toronto, Peter Makowchik of BIAC Broadband revealed his company’s plans to supply small cablecos with the infrastructure necessary to deliver telephony services using their high-speed Internet networks. VoIP would allow smaller cablecos to introduce telephony without the expensive circuit switching used in larger markets.
