Cloud Computing for Unified Communications: Key Issues

Time 07/15/12 01:00PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

If an institution wanted to eliminate all or most of its premises-based communications equipment and deploy a fully loaded unified communications solutions from a hosted or managed cloud services provider, could it do so today? Would it be reliable? Secure? Would the institution lose control over their services?

This session will examine some of the key technological issues institutions may be concerned about when considering moving to a cloud-based solution for communications.
These issues may include:

  • Architecture

  • Feature/functionality

  • Migration path

  • Manageability

  • Reliability

  • Level of risk (security, control/accountability)

The session will be presented by Aastra who was recently selected by Internet2 to offer Hosted PBX services to the Internet2 community. Aastra has over 30 years experience deploying telecommunications solutions to institutions for higher education as well as government and enterprise customers. Aastra has a wealth of expertise and experience deploying VoIP-based solutions including premise-based, managed and hosted solutions.
