Say Hello To The Skype Pipe

Skype for SIP is now live and in my view Skype just created a massive pipe into the corporate market.

While some may immediately want to draw unfair comparisons to SIP Trunking, I'd dubbed this the "Skype Pipe" as in all reality now Skype has the pipe into the business phone market that have for years been off limits to them.

While the pricing per channel may seem on the surface high, in the end it's going to pencil out to be on par, as more Skype for SIP gets deployed.

Other viewpoints out there include Tom Keating and ZDNet.

I've been part of the closed beta for a while and the service works. What will be interesting is the unveiling of their partner program in the months to come. As a Cisco VOIP reseller I really like the idea of a bit of easy to earn reoccurring revenue after the initial install.
