Latin America is emerging as a strong VoIP opportunity. However although there have been some major deployment announcements in Latin America, pure VoIP vendors are still in early stages of VoIP deployments in Latin America. They are still working on which are the right countries to focus on since they all have different requirements. In Argentina, telco cooperatives are all thinking of moving to nextgen switching. In Mexico, where the regulation changed last year, the cable operators are in particular very active in VoIP trials. There are country specific VoIP activities taking place in Latin America. Startup VoIP vendors are finding specific niches only, while the legacy vendors are going after the incumbents. In general Latin America has not been big for pure VoIP vendors for some reason.
