  • This first section is about the IP Telephony marketplace and its drivers
  • Main points: - Introduce the concerpt of voice over IP - Differentiate business oriented telecommunications versus consumer oriented services such as Skype - hit this point hard – IP Telephony is business-class telephony with quality of service and reliability that is in a different league than the free PC-based apps that are out there.
  • The IP Telephony is a significant and fast growing market that will touch every one of our customers. IP Telephony has reached an inflection point where, in 2005, IP Telephony outsold traditional Private Branch Exchange (PBX) systems for this first time – and the market will never look back. This is a huge market – some $8B – growing at 28% per year yet, we are only getting started on this transition. The fastest adopters of IP Telephony are small and medium businesses who have less telephony infrastructure installed and have smaller economies of scale for telephony overhead. This is the focus for our IP Telephony offering. The integration of the 3Com solutions onto the System i platform gives our community a powerful option to extend the System i benefits of simplicity, integration, security and vertical scalability to their communications environment. In Small and Medium business only 15-20% of customers have implemented IP Telephony – yet everyone will. This market is being driven by strong fundamentals with emerging industry standards reducing risk and increasing interoperability, global supply chains requiring long-distance choreography, and an increasingly mobile workforce. The System i and 3Com solution is a pioneer in establishing a model of total business integration necessary to compete effectively in today’s business world. Importantly, the transition of IP Telephony from early adopter to early majority is accompanies by the transition from proprietary to standards-based protocols. This transition will reduce risk by avoiding vendor-lock-in and will spur innovation in the integration of IP Telephony with other collaboration and business processing applications.
  • This section is focused on the benefits of IP Telephony – these benefits are specific to the solution and would be the same regardless of the platform a customer chooses for implementation. This is part of the communications plan for System i IP Telephony – first explain why IP Telephony then explain Why i for IP Telephony
  • First we set up the benefits of converged communications. By moving the telephony infrastructure from its own isolated hardware and wiring plan onto the existing servers and data networking, many significant benefits emerge. In many cases, you can attain paradoxical benefits like Secure and Accessible communications by bringing long-standing data networking technologies (like VPN) to the stodgy world of telephony. Voice is a customer—facing technology – these benefits can deliver a significantly better customer experience and engender higher customer loyalty. We need to remind folks that this technology is part of a suite of collaboration applications which benefit internal and external communications.
  • This chart shows how the data and telephony infrastructures have traditionally been separate. Now, they will coexist on the same server and travel over the same ubiquitous data network to enable the converged applications highlighted on the page before.
  • This is in the general benefits of IP Telephony section for a reason. We want to show customers what is possible with integrated collaboration applications and commit System i to delivering on this vision. That said, these benefits will not be delivered until 1Q 2007. Customers need to see this vision as it is an important part of the value proposition of IP Telephony. * To integrate with IBM Lotus Notes Software, users must be licensed for IBM Lotus Sametime software. No additional purchase required with IBM Lotus Sametime software. Payment for the audio components and usage portions of these capabilities is arranged separately with the audio provider. Click-to-call and Web conferencing integration Provides "click-to-call" capabilities, enabling businesses to instantly place a telephone call to an instant messaging or email contact Gives control to meeting participants with a single, unified interface to both audio and Web conferencing Enables businesses to embed business quality video into their Web conferencing, instant messaging and email infrastructure
  • Here is a summary of the key value add elements for any customer or ISVs who implements IP telephony. - Reduced Telephony costs - Many of the administrative requirements inherent in traditional telephony are integrated with existing processed (add mail and telephony accounts at once) or eliminated (moving offices) - No requirement to build or maintain a separate phone wiring plant - Integrated collaboration applications can make employees more productive and accessible - Again, this is a customer facing technology – customer inquiries are correctly routed and relevant customer / account information is displayed on-screen as the call i answered
  • This is a summary of what a mid-market bank in the US could realize from the transition to IP Telephony. The Savings are cumulative 5-year numbers based on a complete replacement of a traditional de-centralized PBX system with a centralized IP Telephony system. The cost of acquisition for the IP Telephony system is $600,000 which yields the 26 month payout. These numbers will change based on a customer’s needs and the system they implement. It is important to note that in this example, the cost of acquisition for a traditional phone system is estimated to be $700,000 making this an easy choice for green-field businesses. For existing customers with fully-depreciated phone systems, these benefits will be more attractive when a transition point is reached such as a merger, expansion, or a PBX reaching its end of life.
  • Now we talk about Why i for IP Telephony
  • The IP Telephony offering is a total solution comprised of hardware, software and services. The System i hardware, 3Com software and maintenance are ordered through the IBM configurator. The 3Com hardware and services are ordered through the IBM business partner. All components are combined and delivered to the customer as a total solution.
  • Here we acknowledge our partner in System i IP Telephony – 3Com 3Com has the only IP Telephony Solution that is completely standards based using SIP (Session Initiated Protocol). This is extremely important to customers that are considering making the move to IP telephony. SIP = choice and the ability to select non-proprietary solutions that are best in class and can deliver value to an organization quicker and for less money. 3Com has been shipping IP Telephony solutions to the mid-market since 1998 and have over 28,000 IP Telephony customers. Other vendors may have been in the telephone business longer, but 3Com deployed the first business-class IP phone system in 1998 with their Network Branch eXchange, or NBX, solution as well as the first carrier-class IP telephony softswitch with the VCX. There is a great fit between 3Com IP Telephony and System i – we both deliver simplicity, integration, support for open standards and a mid-market focus. And we are both focused on enabling business innovation for our clients. Finally, 3Com is making a significant investment to deliver a solution that runs on the System i and will provide the framework for future standards-based integration with collaboration and business processing applications running in i5/OS Of course, System i brings all the elements of its core value proposition to this space – scalability, reliability, and integration
  • This chart demonstrated two key points: - System i IP Telephony uses our virtualization capabilities to run a full IP Telephony suite on a single system (versus each element of a suite taking one or more servers from the competition) AND the business processing or collaboration workloads on a single system - With dynamic resource allocation, System i can shift resources between applications an partitions to accommodate demand and increase resource utilization. In this example a large end-of-quarter conference call requires additional processing power which is temporarily sourced from the CRM and contract center applications.
  • This slide illustrates how the System i is used as a call transaction processor to set up a call but, once established, the call is point to point. This basic fact of how IP Telephony works leads to significant scalability as well as added robustness to the solution.
  • 3Com’s solution uses multiple layers of redundancy to achieve best-in-class reliability. - First the IP Protocol is designed (with TCP) to find a way to get between two points on a network even if segments of the network are down - Second, as discussed in the slide before, the server is not in the loop during a call - Third, each phone know the addresses of the primary and secondary server(s) as well as where the gateways are - Fourth, the call history, voicemail, and conference calling data is constantly replicated between primary and backup server(s) - Fifth, the gateways can provide rudimentary calling capability in case all servers are down - Finally, Each site can have its own gateway or server to deliver the desired calling capability in the case of the WAN going down
