Optimizing the local area network (LAN) for convergence and IP Telephony is critical to project success. The Phybridge switch innovation was designed specifically to make the migration to IP Telephony and network convergence quick, easy and disruption free delivering on what is important to the customer. The Phybridge switches transform the existing voice infrastructure into an IP path with power ideal for IP Telephony, complementing the existing data LAN while optimizing it for convergence. The convergence point is moved from every desktop with the IP phone acting as a switch for the data device to a single point in the central closet. Quality of service, voice continuity, highly secure, network simplicity, future proofing the LAN and significant financial savings are all part of the benefits customers are achieving with this game changing switch innovation.

What attendees will learn:

  • How to eliminate LAN barriers and confidently migrate to IP Telephony.
  • Understanding the differences between desktop convergence and central convergence.
  • How TransUnion eliminated risk, fast-tracked their project by 6 months, completed a 1400+ user cutover in a single weekend and saved $1.5M.
  • How to leverage your existing proven-reliable voice infrastructure to create a separate voice network while complementing the data LAN.
Who should attend:
  • Businesses with old phone systems wanting the benefits of IP Telephony and Unified Communications but are concerned with network requirements.
  • Value Added Resellers that help customers migrate to an IP Telephony and Unified Communications platform.
  • Businesses that feel forced to maintain old analog or digital endpoints because of LAN barriers but would rather have a pure IP voice platform.
