Even Infonetics Research sounds impressed by the growth of SIP trunking.

In published excerpts from its latest VoIP and UC Services and Subscribers report, the Campbell, Calif.-based market research firm said SIP trunking had “shot up” by 50 percent over the course of 2013. Though Infonetics looks at global data, it said much of the activity was coming from North America, with the EMEA region expected to follow the SIP trunking trend this year.

Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research, suggested that SIP trunking adoption was having a spillover effect on other technologies.

“Business VoIP services have moved well beyond early stages to mainstream, strengthened by the growing adoption of SIP trunking and cloud services worldwide,” Myers said in a statement. “Hosted unified communications are seeing strong interest up market as mid-market and larger enterprises evaluate and move more applications to the cloud, and this is positively impacting the market.”

In previous reports and Webinars, Myers has suggested that next-generation collaboration capabilities will drive SIP adoption, a point that seemed to be proven by the Infonetics chart below:
