Forward looking companies around the globe migrate to new technologies to gain a competitive advantage along with cost savings and productivity gains for their workforce. Currently, many CIOs are implementing UC solutions like Microsoft's Lync and SIP trunking services to communicate via IP inside and outside the enterprise. SIP trunks allow voice traffic to travel over the data network, resulting in significantly lower costs for the provider and, therefore, for the customer as well. SIP trunking also enables streamlined management and provisioning. But SIP trunking is not without its challenges. To benefit from the technology, companies must pay especially close attention to integration and quality of service. For example, to integrate these technologies and secure the corporate network from malicious attacks a Session Border Controller (SBC) is recommended as a demarcation device. This session will address these issues along with early-adopter lessons learned for SIP PSTN integration into environments such as Microsoft Lync 2010.

The event will cover timely topics such as:

  • Lessons learned: security and interoperability -- do them right and you've got a next-generation communications infrastructure
  • Considering SIP trunking as a cost-effective alternative
  • Integration and interoperability with Microsoft Lync 2010
  • Benefits of using a Session Border Controller (SBC) as a demarcation device when integrating legacy voice, SIP trunks and Microsoft Lync 2010
  • Overview of IntelePeer
  • Common issues with SIP trunking interoperability
  • Keys to evaluating SIP trunking service providers

A white paper, "Benefits of Using a Demarcation Device When Integrating Legacy Voice, SIP trunks and Microsoft Lync," will be made available to all attendees free of charge.
