Making the Business Case for VoIP
(EI-01)

Wednesday - 01/23/08,  9:00-9:45am

The focus of this presentation will be on how enterprise customers looking to make the switch to VoIP can partially/fully fund their investment, and prove in their VoIP business case, from savings that can be identified in their current telecom spend. Presenters will discuss the overall value of a complete telecom billing audit and telecom asset inventory study, and link these audit activities to a VoIP Analysis and Business Case showing customers the benefits of performing a network analysis and inventory prior to engaging in a VoIP build-out.

The Open Source IP PBX : Niche Product or Disruptive Technology?
(EI-02)

Wednesday - 01/23/08,  10:00-10:45am

The open source development model has created software and hardware products that have established substantial market presence in corporate environments, including the Linux operating system and Apache web server. Over the past few years, a new open source project has been launched — the development of an open source IP PBX platform. We no longer question the viability of open source operating systems; every major corporation in the world is now using Linux. Open Source applications are now mainstream. The advent of Linux that enabled the IP revolution to move into the telecom world sparked a reduction in tolls and an incredible array of features, which previously were unthinkable. In turn, revenues in the proprietary telephony hardware, compiled proprietary telephony software space went into freefall. We are past the grassroots level of support and acceptance of open-source based telephony applications: large corporate are looking at them. But is the Open Source IP PBX really ready for primetime or as Robert Frost might ask, are there miles to go before we sleep?

The Current State of Open Source
(EI-03)

Wednesday - 01/23/08,  11:00-11:45am

The network has become integral to the business, doing much more than moving packets and providing traditional connectivity services. Today’s networks are complex, comprising multiple layers that work somewhat independently to enable an expanding range of services, including VoIP, security and compliance. This is driving a market requirement for an open approach for implementing multi-vendor technology that enables new services on the network. This session will examine how, with a new open source architecture approach based on telecommunications platforms such as Digium’s Asterisk, networks can empower organizations with the freedom to innovate, faster deployment of new services, and lasting investment protection.

In this session attendees will learn how: Traditional TEM solutions have been eclipsed by new capabilities of Communications Lifecycle management; New technologies and services can adapt and scale to meet organizational needs both now and in the future; Changes in fixed and mobile communications are driving new organizational demands with profound operational impact; Fixed and mobile communications can, and should, be managed in a seamless, centralized process.
