Top networking technologies for 2004

Tuesday, 20 January 2004, 3:42 AM EST

This article discusses five up-and-coming networking trends to the list, ranging from the rise of IP telephony to adoption of real-time network backups. Voice over IP (VoIP) already is beginning to radiate into the environs of the wireless world, even as I-SCSI LAN storage technology moves onto an increasing number of networks.

"Another market realization is that telephony is not just for voice anymore," observed Avaya's convergence strategist Lawrence Byrd. "The advantage of moving to an IP Telephony model is that video and data can be seamlessly added to networks as productivity enhancers," he told NewsFactor. "The eventual goal is to render videoconferencing as simple to implement as dialing up a phone call."

All of these trends are poised to make major marketplace waves during 2004.
