Extending the Role of the Data Centre
LONDON, July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
A newÂ Whitepaper ExaminesÂ theÂ BenefitsÂ ofÂ CentralisingÂ theÂ DeliveryÂ andÂ ManagementÂ ofÂ Voice Services FromÂ the PSTN, andÂ RoleÂ theÂ Data CentreÂ has toÂ PlayÂ inÂ This.
Resilient Networks plc and BroadGroup, international consulting specialists, today announced a new joint whitepaper focussed upon extending the role of the data centre and how, for the first time, larger businesses now have a choice to select the level at which they integrate with the PSTN.
In looking to consolidate all critical ICT services into the data centre, CIOs have often been constrained by the limitations of the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). Whilst their private voice network may bring modern centralised IP voice services to allow inter- and intra-company calling, calls made from the PSTN to their private networks have had to follow a fixed, geographically dispersed, delivery model - one that, until now, has been at odds with their data centre strategy.
This whitepaper, Extending the role of the Data Centre, describes the drivers supporting the centralised delivery and management of PSTN voice services into the data centre. It explains the problems faced by large multi-sited organisations today and highlights how they can benefit by moving away from shared PSTN access infrastructure to a dedicated and direct connection with the PSTN.
It provides specific examples of how organisations have successfully extended the PSTN Core Network to the enterprise, which removes, rather than replaces, the PSTN Access Network. One of the user examples analyzed in the whitepaper found that as the solution is rolled out to its 6,000 employees, savings of up to 40% on line rental and call charges are expected.
"Delivering voice services through the data centre rather through the local office, offers reduced costs, increased agility and resilience," commented Steve Wallage, managing director of BroadGroup Consulting.
Andrew Bale, CEO, Resilient Networks plc, added, "Our work with BroadGroup has shown growth in demand from larger businesses looking for a dedicated interconnect between the public voice network and their private network. Â The data centre offers the logical way to achieve this."
The whitepaper includes detailed user interviews, case studies and market analysis to examine these growing trends and assess how vendors, operators and users should respond.
