Putting SIP To Work 2013 Seminar Agenda

  • 8 — 8:45 am - Registration & Networking Breakfast
  • 8:45 — 9:00 am - Introduction [Presented By Sonus]
  • 9:00 — 9:45 am - Outlook 2013: Trends and Technologies to Watch in Telecom [Presented By Phil Edholm]
  • Focus on how the large IT megatrends of cloud computing, ubiquitous bandwidth and device growth are transforming the information industry and the Enterprise IT and Telecom environment. Discover the link between these changes and the massive growth in SIP and Lync deployment, increased mobility, and the need to re-think key elements of your communications strategy. Examine new ways to think of your organization and how to successfully plan for Unified Communications deployment. You will also get a sneak peek into emerging technologies that will make the next five years in telecom dramatically more transformational than the last ten years and how they change the walled garden approach to managing enterprise security and operations.

  • 9:45 — 10:15 am - Save More / Do More with SIPNow [Presented By Sonus]
  • Today, enterprise communication is disparate, ranging from UC and video to plain old PSTN. Each communication type has its own set of requirements. SIP unifies and enhances enterprise communication. SIP Trunking is a critical element of SIP based enterprise communication, offering significant benefits for both service providers and enterprises. SBC is an integral part of SIP Trunking and plays an important role in enabling SIP based enterprise communication. This session will explore the ROI benefits of SIP Trunking, and also help you understand the features and capabilities that an SBC must support for SIP Trunking.

  • 10:15 — 10:30 am - Break
  • 10:30 — 11:00 am - Lync Your Enterprise [Presented By Sonus]
  • When it comes to cutting-edge Unified Communications technology like Microsoft Lync, the choice of session border controllers (SBCs) is a critical one for both enterprises and the operators who service them. While SBC adoption rates continue to illustrate the value of this technology, not all SBCs are created equal. Decision-makers must carefully weigh factors such as real world session performance, robustness of features, resiliency, scalability and customization before choosing an SBC for their network. This session will help you evaluate an SBC appropriate for your Lync deployment and business needs as well as distinguish the differences between those that deliver superior performance and features.

  • 11:00 am – 11:30 am - Moving to the Cloud: All or Nothing?
  • As companies strive to preserve cash, hosted and managed Unified Communications (UC) services continue to gain traction in the market. From audio and video conferencing solutions to virtual contact center offerings, enterprises today are turning to service providers and new cloud-based services for a wide range of IP communications needs. By leveraging the expertise and capital investments of an experienced service provider, enterprises can improve business agility while reducing Capital Expenses (CapEx) and Operating Expenses (OpEx) using private, public or hybrid cloud models. This session will explore key considerations and opportunities for service providers and enterprises alike.

  • 11:30 am – 12:00 pm - Panel Discussion/Closing [Presented By Sonus & Contributing Speakers]
