Overview of Enterprise Solutions
The success of any organization, whether large or small, depends on the effectiveness of that organization’s communication tools within the enterprise as well as between the enterprise and its customers. The move to Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based communications requires that enterprises revisit their network security and embed a layer of intelligence in order to get the most value out of their move to real-time communications. Sonus Enterprise Solutions help enterprises truly unify their communications networks and overcome their SIP and Unified Communications (UC) challenges.
Migration to Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) the preferred answer amongst enterprises who are looking to implement Unified Communications (UC) within their network while lowering cost. SIP helps to consolidate an enterprises network into a single, Internet Protocol (IP)-based network allowing for all voice, video and data traffic to be handled over the same connection. Sonus’ Session Border Controller (SBC), policy, and management solutions help to insure that the switch to SIP is not only secure but also cost effective and efficient.
As enterprises naturally grow and expand to new locations through organic growth or M&A it is expected that they will eventually find themselves with several different communications infrastructures, either due to their installed PBXs using different versions of codes or being from different vendors entirely. This lack of a single infrastructure will cause two big problems - complex and unmanageable databases and inability for users to dial other offices or voice mail systems using abbreviated dial plans or VPN. These issues make it difficult to integrate new offices or move to a new Unified Communications (UC) platform. Sonus’ enterprise solutions remove these major problems allowing for businesses to grow and expand alleviating the challenges of integrating new or different communication infrastructures and eliminating the cost of maintaining multiple PBXs.
Business is constantly evolving and becoming increasingly more mobile in our BYOD world. As a result, enterprises need to securely deploy real-time communications for remote workers, allowing workers to become more efficient and leading to an increase in productivity regardless of employee location. Sonus’ Session Border Controller (SBC) makes this possible by proactively securing real-time audio, video and multi-media connections.
More and more enterprises are making the switch from their current TDM-based telephony architecture to a modern Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based network. This allows businesses to reduce costs as well as implement Unified Communication (UC) applications, increasing employee efficiency within their network. Sonus’ Session Border Controller (SBC) help to facilitate this switch by enabling analog migration, media interworking, SIP interworking between PBXs and centralized dial plans allowing enterprises to migrate at a pace of their choice, whether it be all at once or piece-meal.
The world of high-cost, high-touch video meeting rooms and meet-me services are being replaced by the pervasive ability of video options on desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. As this occurs the video market continues to fragment at an increasingly rapid rate with the emergence of new service providers and vendors challenging current players in the field such as Microsoft, Cisco, Vidyo and Google. In the midst of all this change Sonus will take care of the technology details to make sure video services are secure, interoperable, delivered with expected QoS, all while being done with scalable and economic investment.
