3 The True Value Of IPC  Enhanced Experience  New Revenue EmployeesCustomersCorporation  Reduced Costs  Shared Infrastructure  Increased Production  Collaboration

4 IPC Requires a Total Solutions Provider with Lifecycle Capabilities Lack of proper lifecycle will: Drive Costs Up Eliminate Value from the Network

5 Total Solutions Provider  Strong Core Product and Services Capabilities  Product Stability, Capability Supports Services As An Extension Of Requirements  Vs. Services Rectifies Product Deficiencies  Extensive, Collaborative Services Delivery  Provide Access To Sophisticated, Scarce Technical Expertise  Able To Control Startup/ Ongoing Costs  Current In Technology Developments While Controlling Technical Risk  Deliver World Class Performance With Clear Objectives, Accountability, And Control  Create Consistency Across A Decentralized Environment

6 Example IPC Lifecycle Site Surveys WAN Analysis Project Requirements Workshop Hardware Readiness Assessment Bandwidth Modeling/Voice Capacity Requirements Security Policy Development Change Management Process Development Fault Management Process Development Availability Benchmarking Low-Level Network Design Proof of Concept Testing Network Modeling Solution Review and Acceptance Floor Plans and Cutover Sheets Technical Support Online Account Hardware Replacement Configuration Backups Movers, Adds, Changes Network Monitoring Problem Determination Resolution Configuration Management Availability and Service-Level Reporting LAN and PSTN Management Network Staging Customer Acceptance Criteria Installation Integration and Configuration Acceptance Testing Create Documentation Cutover Support Operational Handoff Training Customer Admin. and End-user Training Ongoing Software Release Assessment Ongoing Design Support Knowledge Transfer Performance Analysis and Recommendation Network Tuning Network Reliability Improvement Analysis Security Audits and Assessments Operational SupportMaintenanceDeployment Enterprises can fulfill the lifecycle by using a services firm to augment skill Enterprises can fulfill the lifecycle by using a services firm to augment skill PLAN DESIGN IMPLEMENT OPERATE OPTIMIZE

7 The Benefits of IPC Are Worth It  Improved Customer Experience  Reduced Wait Times  Integrated Customer Data  Enhanced Revenue Opportunities  Integration into Point-of-Sale Applications  Customer Applications to Add Special Service Options  Productivity Improvements  Easier Access to Customer Data  Customer “Self-Service” Capabilities  Increased Profitability  Integrated Information Tracking (i.e., Billable Hour Tracking in a Law Firm)  Minimized On-Site Technical Support
