The article comments on technology, the outlook for "multimodal communications," and the growth of IP-telephony. Network Instruments surveyed network engineers and released a report, which indicates that voice-over internet protocol (VOIP) is an important technology. In the next 12 months, 75% of the organizations will have implemented VOIP. The engineers are concerned about maintaining the quality of VOIP service and managing VOIP traffic. Some of the problems that arise from enterprise implementation of VOIP applications can be found on blogs run by Gary Audin or Matt Brunk.
