Convergence > VoIP/IP technology

Every cloud has a silver lining

01 April, 2010

Instead of succumbing to all the gloom and doom emanating from the global financial crisis, which by some rather alarmist reports will see 100,000 Australian small and medium businesses (SMBs) go down the gurgler, why not look for the opportunities, suggests D-Link’s Maurice Famularo.


The agenda behind VoIP

01 April, 2010

The truth is that VoIP technology is really as simple as putting another IP-based application - voice and voice-related services in this case - onto the network. And it does provide cost savings as it enables a method of doing away with the legacy voice network by digitising voice into data so that it can ride on the existing data network. Grant Howe, country manager, ANZ for 3Com, poses the question: so what’s not to love about VoIP? He explains that VoIP’s cost and complexity is really in the licensing.

Is your network VoIP ready?

02 December, 2009

Enterprises and equipment vendors are learning the value of a complete readiness assessment before deploying voice over internet protocol (VoIP) across an organisation. The assessments are a critical step to a successful VoIP deployment, but many enterprises do not perform an assessment because of cost or because, after performing a baseline on network utilisation, they assume that their network has enough bandwidth to accommodate the voice traffic. Fluke Networks’ Wayne Allen* reports on the importance of assessment and the consequences of not assessing the network correctly.


RMH transforms communications systems
