Unified Communications and IP Transformation
We are all under the impression that SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) brings better economics to our voice network services, that it facilitates the way we collaborate within the organization, and that it assists centralized management, amongst many other benefits. But why then, are there only few enterprise-wide SIP implementations?
There are many other market forces been advertised to the enterprise today, like BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and the Mobile-like services, who rely heavily on SIP as their core signaling protocol. Whilst these taking off, why are only a few enterprise-wide SIP implementations moving forward?
If the modernization of your voice infrastructure is not powerful enough at the moment or if you don’t have the time to analyze your specific situation, that might be okay for now, but the clock is ticking. Telecom Service Providers are forcing a migration from traditional PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) to a new all IP-based services. The industry terminology for this is PSTN Sunset. Here is, for example, AT&T’s view. You have the option of transforming your network at your own pace or doing so at the time legacy services and technologies are no longer supported.
“As soon as I visualized my network, I was able to pin point the benefits for moving to newer technologies. The whole project was self-funded! Now, not only I can control the transformation, I plan my network for the future, and my entire team can easily find the information they need to help them operate our network”
Gilbert Albornoz, Corporate Director of Network & Telecom – Baptist Health South Florida
Transforming the way we work
With MetaPort® you can capture all of your network details in an amazingly short time frame (…sometimes mere hours, but typically in a couple of days, regardless of the type of network or structure that you have). The network discovery process is extremely easy. You can find details of how you do this at Connecting Service Providers to MetaPort.
Once you have discovered your network, you will now get a comprehensive view of what you have, where it is, and how much each component of your network is costing you. To give you an idea of the details at your fingertips, or to explore and help you work through your transformation strategy, take our Tour or See Features. For more details, schedule your own MetaPort Demo, only 10 minutes with an expert to see it all and answer all your questions.
MetaPort also produces a transformational business case for you. This business case gives you an idea of how your transformational IP strategies could affect your network, and most importantly, the financial impact on the new design and architecture in comparison to your current network. It takes no time for you. Two cases are provided: Voice TDM-to-SIP and Data TDM-to-Ethernet/IP.
