This free webinar provides an overview of the ecosystem of products and services delivering HD voice and discusses the trends for the proliferation of HD voice in markets around the world, including the obstacles that remain for ubiquitous wideband availability. Doug Mohney, who will be presenting this webinar, will also discuss key points discussed in his recently published report "HD Voice 2012: Proliferation."
HD voice (aka wideband voice) has been talked about for years, but is finally arriving in widespread consumer use. Sprint caught the media's eye by promising mobile HD voice on its network in late 2012, but other U.S. mobile carriers may beat them to the punch. Meanwhile, you can make a mobile HD voice call on most networks in Europe, Australia, India, and even in Siberia, Uganda and Kenya.
Mobile HD voice is expected to generate a “pull through” effect for broadband HD voice in business and consumer use, akin to the appearance of mobile devices, tablets and app stores. But bridging the worlds of mobile and broadband HD voice poses various technical challenges and potential incompatibility headaches. Meanwhile, cable companies continue to prepare to deliver HD voice for residences and some already do so in their business services.

- Exactly what HD voice is
- The technologies and ecosystem that support services on wireless and wireline
- Deployments in the U.S. and around the world
- How nobody is going to make money from HD
- Why video is a false profit
- Where the telecom world goes after HD voice appears
