Integration at the Edge:
Maximizing Results, Minimizing Risk and Investment

Tuesday, November 6, 2012 TIME: 2:00PM ET/ 11:00 AM PT

As a tactical reality, integration at the network edge is not a new concept. Connecting networks and devices through third party bridges and gateways, without having to upgrade or modify networks or devices on either side of the junction, has been part of the technology landscape for decades. However, new economic and technical realities have moved this idea of edge integration from a tactical short- term solution, to a long-term strategic one.

Innovation moves technology forward so quickly that it is nearly impossible to keep network core elements up to date. Plus, the current worldwide economic climate impacts the decision over new technology deployments. No company wants to waste cash or talent on a technology that may fade before it sees wide adoption.

“Integration at the Edge” addresses these issues by detailing a broad range of strategies that empower enterprises and service providers to improve network performance and efficiency by implementing innovative and cost-effective technologies at the edge. The use of flexible, intelligent devices, such as gateways and transcoding solutions, enable a variety of IP Services (VoIP, Unified Communications, Video, Call Recording, SIP Trunking) while minimizing capital investment, leveraging existing infrastructure, and mitigating service disruption and the need for user retraining.

In this Webinar, the attendee will learn:

  • How to leverage a TDM Core for media and signaling delivery from IP Connected Devices
  • Strategies for migrating from a TDM Infrastructure to a hybrid TDM/IP Infrastructure
  • Methods for connecting TDM resources (IVR Systems, Fax Servers, Analog Telephones or entire Call Centers) to an IP Infrastructure
  • Using Flexible, Intelligent, Multi-Purpose Edge Devices to Future Proof network investments
