IP Telephony Deployment
A common misconception is that reinvestment in your network is a must in order to deploy IPT. If your network can be described as CAT5 or higher, 100 megabit / 1Gigabit switched Ethernet, with at least one port to every user desktop, it is highly likely that the basis for “network readiness” is in place. The key is your ability, or your chosen technology partner’s ability: to effectively adjust, monitor and manage this network and the applications that connect to it.
