illume consulting has been having an amazingly interesting start to 2011 travelling to some of the most interesting markets in the world including; Palestine, Malaysia, Nigeria, Trinidad and most recently South Korea. South Korea maybe an example of what we are likely to see in Uk and other European Markets!. The explosion of mobile data is quite amazing, with growth rates that would make most network planner quake in their boots. One of the interesting dynamics in this market is the recent growth in MVoIP/UC applications, the handset market in South Korea is dominated by Samsung Android devices and we have seen the development of both straight MVoIP applications but also integrated Video/Social Networking & chat applications, the growth of these service has been particularly prominent in the last 6 months. These services include Kakaotalk, Tango & Hithere amongst others. Tango is a video calling applications, Kakaotalk is more of a chat based service & Hithere integration with messaging. With the increasing use of Apple Facetime these OTT video and chat services will be an interesting challenge to the existing mobile operators. VoIP operators who are looking at integration with mobile networks,y may want to look at these applications for a steer towards what capability they could offer in the future. Interestingly in pretty much all the above markets their is a significant move towards hosted VoIP based enterprise funtionality, we look forward to seeing how the Uk VoIP market is developing when we gather our latest figures at the end of June.
