IDC believes the current market slowdown in telecom will have a mixed effect on the market for IP telephony equipment. One reason for this is the IP telephony equipment market sprawls across many different equipment types and applications.

IDC's study "The Market Slowdown in IP Telephony: Which Areas Will Be Most Affected" evaluates nine separate application segments in which revenue-producing deployments of IP telephony equipment are currently taking place. The study also provides quantitative rankings for each of the nine areas.
