The article focuses on the falling prices of IP-PBX system and other IP-telephony applications. The list prices of several related products are 10-15 percent below than what they used to be in 2005. The factors responsible for this decline in prices include maturing technology and stiff vendor competition. In 2005, growth in systems shipped was a strong 7 percent, and station shipments a healthy 6.5 percent. Today's IP-PBX market includes lots of smaller systems that would not have been included in statistics for the TDM PBX market.
