According to two recent studies conducted by IDC, spending on WLAN and VoIP will double by 2009. IDC expects the biggest spending to come from the government sector. The government accounted for $118 million in VoIP equipment and $100 million in WLAN equipment in 2004. IDC also expects other sectors to increase spending, including the financial, healthcare and retail sectors. VoIP spending in the financial and retail sectors is likely to see a considerable boost owing to an increased need of real-time integration of data.
