I’m trying to assess the competitive threat that Asterix might represent to conventional corporate conference call services. To the extent any one has any views on Asterix’s conferencing abilities versus traditional hardware based conferencing bridges or more general thoughts on the potential ability for an all VoIP, software based conferencing service to displace traditional conference calls it would be very helpful.
My initially research suggests that it is unlikely that corporate conference callers transition to VoIP conference calls on a software bridge in the shorter because of the a) lack of security b) inconsistent quality of the calls and c) the limited amount of options available on the bridges (i.e. call management abilities, etc).
Any and all thoughts would be helpful and interesting.
