Final editing is taking place on the HD voice report. I should have a conference call in the next couple of days with TMC to discuss the mechanics of getting it online and available next week.
There’s a lot of stuff in the report. It’s 78 pages, plus the table of contents and various other front-end bits. It’s the first comprehensive report on the HD voice ecosystem, and looks at service providers – broadband, wireless, over-the-top, SIP peering, conferencing, gaming – plus CPE and network gear. There’s also an appendix, “The Basics of HD voice” to act as a primer for those not familiar with the technology.

Current price is $495 for a single site copy. I realize this is higher than many individuals are willing/able to fork out and will be looking at ways to make it more affordable for those who are interested in tracking the technology.
