21 Market Strategy and Analytics Partners, LLC Copyright © 2011 Page 21 Types of UC Architectures but NO Diagrams

22 Market Strategy and Analytics Partners, LLC Datacenter Platform Model Centralize UC platforms in customer or SP (MSP-hosted) datacenter  Becomes a Private or Public “Cloud” Service New Architecture/Topology standard  Supported by “virtually” all UC vendors Common to all Models  Deploy SIP Trunks to deliver services to corporate locations with some degree of survivability in each location Gateways/SBCs and Failover to PSTN  Support Mobility/Teleworking in evolving methods FMC VPN or not Copyright © 2011 Page 22

23 Market Strategy and Analytics Partners, LLC Distributed on Premises Model Essential UC component assets deployed in all company locations  Ownership/financing models evolving – some “Utility Pricing” emerging  Networking/integration complex and provides opportunities for professional services Primary situation today – includes lots of legacy and non-SIP- enabled equipment – and multi-vendor Common to all Models  Deploy SIP Trunks to deliver services to corporate locations with some degree of survivability in each location Gateways/SBCs and Failover to PSTN  Support Mobility/Teleworking in evolving methods FMC VPN or not Copyright © 2011 Page 23

24 Market Strategy and Analytics Partners, LLC Hybrid Model Some locations served out of centralized private or public (hosted) datacenter platform Balance of locations/users either served with on-prem or cloud/hosted solutions Most companies will face this through migration period, if not “end-state” Common to all Models  Deploy SIP Trunks to deliver services to corporate locations with some degree of survivability in each location Gateways/SBCs and Failover to PSTN  Support Mobility/Teleworking in evolving methods FMC VPN or not Copyright © 2011 Page 24

25 Market Strategy and Analytics Partners, LLC Delivery Models – Lots of Confusion Managed vs. Hosted  Not just “On-Prem” vs. “Cloud”  What is done by the provider and customer or third-party The financial model  Mix of Capital and Operating financial arrangements  Perhaps moving to “Utility” pricing Who Delivers?  Vendors  VARs/VADs/SIs  SPs  OTTs  Other?

27 Market Strategy and Analytics Partners, LLC Copyright © 2011 Page 27 SPs – SIP and UC

28 Market Strategy and Analytics Partners, LLC UC Relevant SP Types and Characteristics Traditional Telcos  Historical Network Services Focus – but at odds with SIP (although diminishing)  Long Voice Heritage – Centrex, PBX and Key Systems  Extensive Customer Base and “Channels”  Mobility Big Driver  Wrestling with Hosted/Cloud and On-Prem models  Legacy migration/transformation is major issue  Triple/Quad play migrates from Consumer to Business, generally from small to large Likely to Deploy Multiple Vendors’ Solutions – often driven by Customer Choice Copyright © 2011 Page 28

29 Market Strategy and Analytics Partners, LLC UC Relevant SP Types and Characteristics Competitive Telcos  Created to compete with traditional SPs  Faster to adopt new technologies to deliver services Easier to transition the UC and SIP as less legacy  May deploy multiple UC solutions from multiple vendors  Major competition is services, price and customer care  Ubiquity is a challenge  Channel coverage is also challenging … Partnering models evolving for expertise and geographic coverage Copyright © 2011 Page 29

30 Market Strategy and Analytics Partners, LLC UC Relevant SP Types and Characteristics CableCos  Just entering business markets with, generally, hosted VoIP voice Offers, channels and models being developed  Start at small end and evolve upward  Initially a price competition vs. incumbent  UC may be a way off, as are SIP trunks, especially on owned networks  May be distracted by desire to add mobility to keep consumer presence Copyright © 2011 Page 30

31 Market Strategy and Analytics Partners, LLC UC Relevant SP Types and Characteristics ITSPs/MSPs  Built to provide hosted IPT  Many spawned locally/regionally across country Use technology from several players or internally developed  Generally target specific customer segment demographics Size Multi-location Verticals  Often Provide other “Managed Services” Web site hosting Desktop support  Adding UC capabilities  Often use other SPs’ SIP trunks Copyright © 2011 Page 31

32 Market Strategy and Analytics Partners, LLC UC Relevant SP Types and Characteristics OTTs/Wild Cards  Skype and Google are models here  Business/Enterprise segment is a new market for them  Providing infrastructure, like SIP trunks, will require partnering  Business models vastly different than traditional SPs Advertising and “Free” Are they/will they ever be true SPs?  Do they become regulated?  What customer segment focus?
