With an ever-expanding empire in the world of search and
online communication, some believed that Google was missing a string to
its bow when it came to VoIP software. Recent news that the company is
in negotiations to buy publically traded Norwegian company Global IP
Solutions suggests that Google is planning to complete its arsenal with
a new solution.
While the deal is still surrounded in mystery, it's no surprise that Google has
sought to takeover a company it has long been a customer of. What is more unsure is
how existing customers, such as search engine and online rivals Yahoo! and AOL, will
fit into the picture if Google gains control of Global IP Solutions.
SEO company Queryclick.com commend Google for its ability
to spot opportunities. Queryclick explained: "As Google has continued to grow,
it's suffered from the same problems that face any rapidly and massively expanding
business - the fact that the bigger you get, the harder you fall.
"However, the company has continued to make smart purchases and spot holes in the
market, as well as showing its not afraid to take risks or write a project off as a
failure if it doesn't come to fruition, We think that the acquisition of a company
like Global IP Solutions is a very smart move for the search engine - especially as
it tries to move further into the mobile market."
Google also bought VoIP provider Gizmo5 in November of last year, and this latest
attempted acquisition suggests the search company hasn't found its ideal solution
yet. The new deal with Global IP Solutions is still awaiting approval from
stockholders, although both businesses appear confident that approval will be
A report in the Guardian suggests that an announcement from Global IP Solutions last
month could hold the key to the acquisition: the company stated that it was
introducing new technology to make it easier for Android developers to integrate
video conferencing and chat into their apps.
In response to the suggestion, Queryclick said: "It's very interesting to see how
Google will continue to adapt its services for the rise of the mobile web. With
internet services available from all manner of Smartphones, the uptake in mobile web
use has been fast and keeping up with the needs and demands of the customer means
changing gameplans for many businesses.
"Companies now need to make sure search engine optimisation, advertising and PPC
campaigns are able to interact successfully with the desires of users who are
expecting more and more from their online services - whether it means added
functionality, or sites that are easy to browse from mobile devices."
