Title: Unified Communications - A Myth or Reality ?

Unified Communications - A Myth or Reality ?
Unified Communications has no absolute meaning
  • Unified Communications allows the integration of
    voice telephony with user presence and ID to
    allow seamless delivery of multi-modal
    communication methods including voicemail,
    unified messaging, conferencing (audio, video and
    web) and instant messaging.
  • The separate elements that form unified
    communications are now starting to be sold in
    suites as opposed to stand alone solutions. This
    is expected to be the norm as we move forward
  • The UC applications market value in the UK is
    projected to increase by a CAGR of almost 15
    throughout the projection period, rising from
    144 million at end user levels in 2007 to 331
    million in 2013

Unified Communications Drivers/Trends
Unified Communications Restrictors ?
Customer service is a top priority, that is why
provide 24/7 service
to our customers. Accessibility
is key and if our technicians are unable to take a
call immediately, no matter where they are,
it results in unhappy customers and lost revenue.
Jim Goodlett, CEO Morris Technology
With moves adds and changes my add portion
of my expenditures
increased as mobility took on
a critical role in my business. It required
standardising all employees on the same mobile
device and incurring expensive service charges.
George Smaistrla, CEO Valley ENT

iPhones Replacing BlackBerrys at Standard
Chartered Bank18-May-2010
  • UK-based, Asia-operating Standard Chartered Bank
    is allowing its 75,000 employees to replace their
    BlackBerry (NSDQ RIMM) with iPhones if they
    prefer. Although RIM has been riding high on
    consumer sales lately, they still have a massive
    installed base of enterprise customers. Standard
    Chartered is far from the biggest bank in the UK,
    but its still a significant BlackBerry rollout
    that could have its numbers reduced as a result
    of the iPhone option. With the next iPhone OS,
    Apple (NSDQ AAPL) is becoming more
    enterprise-friendly, offering management and
    security policies.
  • Why ?
  • Many people double up on mobiles BlackBerry for
    business, and iPhone for pleasure. The decision
    for a company to allow iPhones is based at least
    partly on that inconvenience,

Other things to consider..
  • Caller Recognition Service (CRS)
  • Introducing a new service, validating external
    incoming calls based on the Calling Party ID

    User (EHDU)
  • Various levels of validation, e.g. PIN Request,
    Completely Trusted
  • Supported trunk types include PRI, BRI, SIP LS
  • Pre-Authorized Voice Mail Access
  • Once incoming calls are recognized as "EHDU
    trusted", users are logged in and may be routed
    to voice mail
  • Voice mail welcomes users to their mailbox and
    immediately informs them of the number of
    messages that are waiting
  • Voice mail bypasses the PIN entry, as callers are
    considered authorized users in the voice network

Intuitive Interfaces for users
