UC Network Impact: Balancing Your Approach

Jeremy Littlejohn, Chief Analyst, RISC Networks
Lots of planning goes into a successful UC implementation. But are you planning for your other applications also? What impact does UC really have on the environment, and how heavy handed should you be in deploying Quality of Service? In this presentation, Jeremy Littlejohn, Chief Analyst at RISC Networks, will share insights from over 2,000 advanced network assessments that highlight the challenges faced by IT departments as they roll out UC applications. In addition, Mr. Littlejohn will discuss techniques and tools for successfully managing the mix of applications you must support on your network as you deploy UC. There is a real world, with real budgets, that exists outside of UC and QoS white papers that must be addressed and managed. Mr. Littlejohn will discuss successful approaches and potential pitfalls. This presentation is based on real world assessments of medium to large enterprise environments, and will be technical in nature.

  • Leveraging SDN and NFV for Next-Gen Mobile Network Infrastructure May 14 2015 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Anshu Agarwal, VP Marketing, ConteXtream
    Network functions virtualization (NFV) and Software-defined networking (SDN) have the potential to revolutionize mobile service provider networks. The transformation of moving the functions out of dedicated appliances and into virtualized applications that can run on generic hardware makes carriers faster and leaner, allowing them to roll out new services more quickly and be more flexible in how they run their networks. Here we will discuss the different mobile use cases that can take benefit of SDN/NFV paradigm. This new programmable network is also future-protected and designed to help support the new demands that come with the Internet of Things (IoT), BYOD, video and more.

    Paul Marra, Director of Product Marketing, MegaPath
    Year-over-year, the number of organizations moving from one-off communication tools to a more collaborative approach are growing dramatically.

  • Lyft Case Study: Achieving Growth with Cloud Communications Recorded: Apr 1 2015 15 mins
    Pick up your smartphone, tap a button, and get a lift to wherever you need to go. That’s the idea behind Lyft, the San Francisco-based company whose service is now available in five major metropolitan areas.

    “We wouldn’t be able to operate at this capacity without a product like RingCentral,” says Adam Fishman, Director of Growth and Operations. “We needed something that was fast, scalable, and had all the features we were missing.”

    With RingCentral, Lyft has realized an exponential growth in productivity, including:

    -An increase in call-back rates from 5% to nearly 50%
    -More than 100% improvement in outbound call volume

    Watch the video to understand the role cloud communications plays in turning a good idea into something revolutionary.
Providing the tools for increased employee productivity
Unified communications simplifies and integrates all forms of communications within the enterprise. By ‘unifying’ phone, e-mail, chat, voice mail, fax and other key processes related to internal and external communication, you can automate all forms of human and device communications into a common user experience. As a result, organizations will optimize business processes, enhance human communications, reduce latency and manage flows while eliminating device and media dependencies.
