Skype has the SILK codec but no one in the conference bridge business has incorporated SILK into it.Nothing sounds as good, or works as easily, and since Skype to Skype bridge calls, like those to HiDef Conferencing are free, nothing is as economical.
If Skype wants the enterprise market to embrace it, Skype should support the development of a SILK based conferencing bridge and not be waiting for Citrix Online's integration much later this year.
Given the millions of users of conferencing, the ability to go SuperWideBand creates a far better experience. One would think that the current conferencing providers wouldn't want to eventually concede all of their business to Skype so by incorporating SILK into their codec mix, building Skype bridges and working with Skype that their future would be secure.
To me it's either do that, or watch Skype eat their lunch in 2012.
