Virtualizing Communications

Introduction and Overview

Thursday, January 21, 2010, 1:00 pm, Room B214/215

Virtualization is software technology which uses a physical resource - such as a server - and divides it up into virtual resources called virtual machines (VM's).

Virtualization allows users to consolidate physical resources, simplify deployment and administration, and reduce power and cooling requirements. While virtualization technology is most popular in the server world, virtualization technology is also being used in communications, data storage such as Storage Area Networks, and inside of operating systems such as Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V.

Virtualization Advantages:

  • Server consolidation
  • Reduced power and cooling
  • Green computing
  • Ease of deployment and administration
  • High availability and disaster recovery

Popular virtualization products include:

  • VMware
  • Microsoft
  • Hyper-V
  • Virtual Iron
  • Xen

The Virtualization Summit at ITEXPO helps enterprises understand the vast advantages of a virtualization strategy, and explains how to select and deploy the solution best for your particular situation.


Virtualizing Communications

The traditional argument against the adoption of IP-based voice solutions has been quality of service. While latency is acceptable with data applications, degraded voice communication is not an option in business environments. IP communications, however, has moved beyond the challenges of voice quality, and now, the latest technologies are enabling the convergence of voice and data in virtualized environments, extending the benefits of virtualization beyond data applications to all communications-related services. This session will discuss the current opportunities and future trends allowing the virtualization of voice applications.
