Convergence from a Customer’s View A journey or a destination
Why UC Not going to talk about : Why UC Not going to talk about : What is UC Not going to talk about : Best UC company If you are going to UC there are choices now on the voice side for how to IP enable your phones
Goals for the Discussion 1.Challenge the paradigm that IP voice must go on a Data LAN to be fully converged 2.Provide you a choice that you never knew you had before 3.Give you knowledge so you can make the best decision for your organization
Internet Cell PSTN DATA LANVOICE LAN DATA LAN Unified Communications Applications CONVERGENCE Tremendous Business Value in Unified Communications & IP Telephony IP Phone A Complete End to End Solution Including a Sound Foundation
Understanding Your Objective Ensure a good user experience –Quality of Service & Reliability. Eliminate or reduce financial risk –Pre, During and Post Deployment. Proper Budget Allocation –Foundation, Gear, Applications Build Sound Network Foundation –QoS –Voice Continuity –Non Disruptive –Easy To Manage –Future Proof Network Brand Protection –Success - on budget on time. Highest Return on Investment… …Lowest Total Cost of Ownership
The Value of the Current State Desktop Voice Data Five 9’s QoS Built for Real Time Voice Requirements Point-to-Point topology Built for Data Distributed Topology Near Time Delivery Acceptable Desktop Data Path Voice Path PSTNInternet PBX Data Packets Voice Packets
The Right Foundation - Key To Success Your Choices: Prior to Innovation: Converge at every desktop with IP phone acting as switch for data device. After Innovation: Converge once centrally leveraging your existing voice infrastructure. Converged LAN foundation is critical to IP telephony and Unified Communication success.
Prior To Innovation Internet One Network One Paths Existing Voice Infrastructure Not Used Data switch reach limitations and wiring requirements did not give businesses many options. Convergence Point is every IP phone.
Post Innovation Internet IP Phone PhyAdapter One Network….Two Paths Data PathVoice Path PSTN Ethernet & PoE over existing voice infrastructure with 4 times the reach. Convergence is once centrally in main closet.
Review Your Options What’s best for your business eliminating any industry biases and conflict of interest. Desk Top ConvergenceCentral Convergence
Understand Your Options Knowledge is Power - Technology Considerations ConsiderationDesk Top ConvergenceCentral Convergence LAN assessmentRecommended to understand if data network can support voice requirements. Not Required - Dedicated bandwidth for voice. New InfrastructureCabling - CAT 5E or more is recommended. Not Required - Leverage existing proven reliable. Time To Deploy.Professional Service Time Required - High for your staff and ours. Quicker and Lower Cost allocated to Professional Services for Planning. IDF ClosetsBack up power & Cooling.Not Required - All switches in main closet.
Understand Your Options Knowledge is Power - Business Considerations ConsiderationDesk Top ConvergenceCentral Convergence Network or Business Disruption. Rip and replacing your infrastructure and network may cause disruption. Complimenting existing data LAN leveraging proven reliable voice infrastructure minimizes disruption. Financial Considerations Difficult to provide complete pricing for overall project given unknowns of a rip and replace strategy. We can provide you with a not to exceed pricing once we complete the no cost site survey. Voice Quality of Service Subjective and will require monitoring and management. Guaranteed on a Phybridge backbone given dedicated bandwidth for each phone. Voice ContinuityDependent on Data LAN. If data LAN fails, voice fails. We can configure for voice to continue if data LAN fails.
Understand Your Options Knowledge is Power - Business Considerations ConsiderationDesk Top ConvergenceCentral Convergence LAN ManagementMore involved given every device impacts every other device on the network. May require software & professional services. Simple given physical separation. Data changes and increasing bandwidth loads will not impact voice quality or reliability. Provider Dependency Potentially - Given complexity of network management you may require more support and greater maintenance requirements. Non - Voice switches compliment data switches while providing an integrated management capability. Two vendors, we will keep them both honest.
Understand Your Options Knowledge is Power - Business Considerations ConsiderationDesk Top ConvergenceCentral Convergence Return on Investment. More of budget will be allocated to the infrastructure to support and manage the IP telephony solution. By reducing LAN readiness and management costs we can allocate more of your budget to Applications and application adoption driving a better return on investment for you. Future Communication Requirements More Data speeds required to desk top you will spend more on: New Phone, New PoE, and New higher speed switches. Significant savings - No new IP phone, No need for PoE to support higher bandwidth for computers.
15 $75 per phone savings Only difference is PoE - $5,000 per 48 port switch Convergence Today, Gigabit Tomorrow $50 to $100 per phone savings. Gigabit phone not required Up to $5000 per switch savings PoE Not Required. New POE New Gigabit Phones NO POE 10/100 IP Phone SAVINGS Per 48 Users: 48 Port Switch$5, Gigabit Phones$3,600 Phones & PoE $8,600 Plus: less disruption & risk.
Blinded by Industry Biases? The Unfortunate Reality: Your data switch provider may not recommend the alternative even if it is better for you. We are committed to your success with no biases. Your Success - Our goal.
