Abstract: SIP IP PBX Hardware is Replaced By Cloud
Software
.
Smart SIP Based IP PBX systms have come full circle from the times when enterprise
hardware was less expensive than AT&T supplying each phone on the desk of every
business. Now the cloud computing is ubiquitious and less expensive than enterprise
server technology. IP PBX is far less expensive than owning your own servers and has
been for a long time.

Information technology (IT) has moved from the back office to the front office with
platform technologies, mobile, social business, cloud, and analytics monitoring. The
shift occurring is for digital technology to embed itself into every aspect of business
endeavor and personal lives.
This is an era where the distinction between the technologies and processes that
businesses deploy is tightly linked. Digital technology directly impacts customers and
markets. The boundary between internal operations of the enterprise and its external
ecosystem is rapidly disappearing. Customers, markets, competitors, partners, and
regulators are inextricably linked.

SIP Based IP PBX: Market Description, Market Shares,
and Market Forecasts
Business leaders are challenged to move their enterprises to the next level of
competition. An effective digital business player, transformer, and disruptor position
depends on the effectiveness of employing digital technologies. Organizational,
operational, and business model innovation are needed to create ways of operating and
growing the business. It is a journey.
Many companies are using digital technology to create market disruption.

positioning. As entire industries shift to the digital world, once buoyant companies are
threatened with disappearing. SIP is a significant aspect of telecommunications
applications server disruptive technology, it is enough to look at Avaya and the
bankruptcy to see there is a shift to cloud SIP solutions.
A Digital Transformation, An Approach That Enables
Organizations To Drive Changes In Their Business
Models And Ecosystems
Disruption in the business communications markets represents major opportunity
for vendors with cloud offerings. This is part of a larger digital transformation, a digital
approach to interconnecting everything that enables organizations to drive changes in
their business models and ecosystems.
By leveraging digital competencies, businesses can grow faster than they would
otherwise. A digital strategy, in conjunction with the appropriate unified communications
solution permits the implementation of innovative communications services. Digital
connectivity with combined voice, video and file transfer can help organizations and
their end users innovate and compete more effectively. It is imperative that
organizations have a digital communications strategy in place.

SIP Based IP PBX: Market Description, Market Shares,
and Market Forecasts
Communications and collaboration solutions are migrating to the cloud in every
segment of small, medium and large business. In vertical markets, businesses are
managing competition that is characterized by disruption. Traditional verticals exploit
digital technologies.
Initiatives provide innovation in the marketplaces. Communications initiatives are
being used to leverage information from the Internet of Things (IoT) and video. New
functionality is being built out in the healthcare sector. Communication goes beyond
voice. Most people under 30 prefer to communicate via text.
SIP IP communications can provide an increase in the quantity and quality of
home and personal medical devices for monitoring patient health care. Care delivery is
being improved by having monitors linked into a full communications system. By
integrating the data from monitoring devices with a real-time communications system,
medical professionals can do their jobs better.
Making the workforce more engaged and productive by providing users with new
tools and solutions that are highly relevant to how they work in the DX era, while
delivering enterprise-class voice and video capabilities. Increased productivity is
achieved.
Users can remotely share and explain real-time data in context. Compelling
benefits that organizations can realize from UC&C solutions designed for the digital
transformation era:

SIP Based IP PBX: Market Description, Market Shares,
and Market Forecasts
SIP PBX Forecast
SIP enabled PBX and IP PBX market forecasts indicate a bifurcation in the
market between hardware servers and cloud enabled services, either for soft switches
and or Unified Communications (UC). The SIP based voice equipment and services
market PBX phone systems, voice over IP gateways, UC applications and IP phones
markets at $14.15 billion in 2016 are anticipated to grow strongly in the cloud computing
segment to reach $59 billion by 2023.
Strong growth is anticipated as mega data centers and hyper data centers create
networks inside the data centers that force economies of scale and move users beyond
server solutions to cloud solutions. The SIP IP technology is a softwre solution that can
reside anywhere, on a PBX hardware server or inside a cloud as a software solution.
Other combinations of hardware and software are done.
What matters is that the broad feature function package known as a PBX gets
implemented and made available to users. The SIP trunking is more efficient for users,
creating clearer, more consistent voice communications.

SIP Based IP PBX: Market Description, Market Shares,
and Market Forecasts
1.1 Software Based IP PBX
The software based SIP based IP PBX integrated infrastructure provides
opportunities for achieving significant acceleration of business processes and employee
productivity. As communications functionality becomes integrated into daily worker
productivity and core process business applications. The need to effectively support
business communication application software takes on additional mission critical
importance.
Productivity and core process business applications effectively support business
communication. Application software takes on additional mission critical importance in
this context. The shift to a software centric communications model creates new
requirements for operations and support.
Conventional phone service can quickly become a costly venture, particularly if
you are endeavoring to use such services to satisfy the unique communications
demands of the small-to-midsized business market. Luckily, such businesses now have
the options when it comes to voice communications and are no longer subject to the
burdens of standard phone service.
SIP IP PBX is being implemented as software driven sets of communications
functionality. Instead of investing large sums of money on outdated servers, businesses
opt for more reliable and cost efficient Voice over IP (VoIP) communications platforms
based on efficient cloud computing.

SIP Based IP PBX: Market Description, Market Shares,
and Market Forecasts
These types of digital calling systems leverage high-speed Internet to transmit
high quality voice calls. Users have a wide range of rich, business enhancing features.
Multiple VoIP PBX providers use robust software feature function packages located in
the cloud to achieve PBX functionality. This extends the definition of a PBX beyond a
server to label it SIP VoIP. The server has become a virtual machine.
A phone system with hosted SIP PBX is referred to in the industry as an
advanced virtual PBX that starts with 40 features and can be expanded to thousands of
features. ·
1.1.1 Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunking
Session initiation protocol (SIP) trunking is the virtual equivalent of a traditional
business phone line. A SIP trunk is a virtual connection to the public switched
telephone network (PSTN), utilizing an internet connection. SIP is one of the specific
protocols that enable VoIP services to work.
A SIP trunk replaces the physical connections with virtual connections over
existing IP networks. Information is transmitted through the internet and not landline
telephone lines. SIP integrates voice, video data and internet services into one single
line.
VoIP PBX, voice communications were no longer restricted to traditional circuits
and landline phones. Instead through SIP, a signaling language designed to carry data
like voice, video and instant messaging, utilize the internet to highly cut down on the
cost and rigidity of older phone systems.
All SIP calls are local calls and you do not need a phone line. SIP services are
offered by most business VoIP providers for both small and large application.

SIP services offer a cost effective way for small businesses to maintain the
professional presence.
1.1.2 SIP Trunking Works: Over an Existing IP Network
SIP trunking delivers telephone and unified communications services over an
existing IP network. SIP trunking replaces traditional telephone lines. Through a SIP
trunk, VoIP users can make calls directly to any phone on the PSTN without telephone
lines by connecting to a compatible hosted PBX system.
Three elements to operate a SIP trunk are the SIP provider that supplies the
services, a phone system that has a trunk side to enable SIP, and a border element to
facilitate the connection between the enterprise network and the PSTN or an external IP
carrier network.
These border elements can be a firewall or switch, and are usually managed by
SIP trunking provider. These elements any business can vastly boost its
telecommunications reach. A pre-existing IP-PBX installed make the process even
easier.
Advantages of SIP trunking services: to SIP, small businesses can easily appear
large and professional with a level of service often reserved for more expensive
solutions or Fortune 100 companies. This makes it easier for a large business to
maintain their local presence, as all SIP calls are local calls – customers do not have to
dial a generic call center number. The benefits of SIP include inherent flexibility.
SIP inherent flexibility allows users to add or even subtract as many phone lines
as they need. The hassle of overpaying for unused lines, or waiting. Everything can be
handled through dedicated web portals to tailor the phone system to needs on the fly.

Analog trunks can be disrupted by bad weather. Expensive phone companies,
SIP trunking can help mitigate disaster scenarios by properly rerouting, and prioritizing
calls to different networks or phones.
Consolidated hardware and setups reduce the installation and maintenance
costs of adding or changing existing phone system. The system can grow without
adding hardware, a new trunk for extra phone lines doesn’t require any new devices.
Take phone number anywhere you travel. Move offices, as number bound by
location. If primary link to the SIP provider fails or any internet connection can serve as
a temporary link to the SIP network.
Business does a lot of calling oversees, SIP can offer free international calls
based on provider and pricing plans. Compare industry leading SIP providers. SIP
trunking can improve business communication.
SIP trunking connections are more limited than IP networks. Phone lines are
required for the purchase of a trunk that included at minimum, 24 additional lines.
There is no o need to purchase an entire trunk. This is a lot more money and includes
23 useless lines. SIP trunking strongest advantage is scalability.
SIP trunking combines video, data and voice all into one single line, Local, long
distance, broadband internet service, and video calls are all handled through one
network. With dynamic bandwidth allocation, users can ensure the necessary
resources are available. Basic web use maintaining a consistent call volume and
quality.
Every service on the same network, the necessary hardware needed in house
drops dramatically. In house IT managers stay on top of phone lines, with Sip
technology nothing is on-site.

The provider sets up a SIP proxy server to provision incoming, outgoing, and
PBX calls and they even take care of all technical support to cut down on costs and
headaches.
Service outages are a thing of the past with SIP trunking. If one location shuts
down temporarily, SIP trunks will automatically reroute calls to any other locations and
extensions to at least partially restore services.
If there is an unexpected power outage, calls can be rerouted to a separate
satellite office. Companies with an international presence, or even considering
outsourcing, can take advantage of this benefit. The flexibility of SIP trunking allows
spread staff across the country or even the world. SIP trunking helps businesses.
1.1.3 SIP Trunking Alternative Solutions:
Sending data over one single connection does not take much to start saving
money with a SIP trunk. SIP trunks are 25% cheaper than PRI trunks. Beyond a level
of flexibility that just not available in traditional phone services, SIP allows making free
voice calls between any office on the same VoIP system. With a large list of providers
and hardware, pricing and installation costs are much lower, and rates for calls are
lower.
Another option, Primary Rate Interface (PRI) trunking allows for large businesses
to transmit a large number of voice and data communications from multiple locations,
This is an older, outdated alternative to SIP. As it relies on the use of T1 lines,
telephone circuits might need to be added and calling fees are generally more
expensive.

SOA and a web services development and runtime environment support the
rapid creation and deployment of SIP applications using familiar and well understood
SOA and web services programming models. SIP SOA enables the seamless
integration of SIP Application Server with Web Services-based SDP infrastructures and
enterprise SOA environments at the application layer.
SIP SOA abstracts the complexities of the SIP protocol by exposing reusable
Service Components as standards-based web services to external applications,
enabling developers that are not necessarily SIP experts to quickly incorporate SIPbased real-time session control into their applications.
Service Components are pre-built software building blocks providing specific
elements of functionality that can be composed into logical applications. Service
Components are organized into a 3-Tier hierarchy with each tier delivering a specific
class of functionality.
Service Orchestration is a capability of SIP SOA that enables more rapid service
creation. Service Orchestration lets developers use a simple scripting language, called
BPEL (Business Process Execution Language), to orchestrate the interaction between
Service Components.
This allows composite applications to be quickly built by combining and
orchestrating different SLBs (Service Level Blocks) into an overall application or service.

networks of most major enterprises use a host of vendor equipment that has delivered
digital voice services. These companies need to leverage the existing investment in
their capital equipment.
Voice mail, call center, and automated call distribution offerings involve adjunct
servers, attached to the PBX fabric through proprietary line side ports or data interfaces.
These applications do interoperate through standards. The vast majority of PBXs are
network islands connected via traffic-bearing circuits.

The SIP-PBX can work with legacy PBX implementations to bring these islands
together, participate fully in forklift upgrades of already depreciated telephony
infrastructure, and act as an overlay application to unify control of the VoIP network
backbone.
The SIP-PBX enables centralized voice mail services to be extended based on
the availability of inexpensive storage, backup, and regulatory compliance. Corporatewide directories are able to strengthen customer service and global follow-me services.
Systems are implemented for more productive employees. Many other applications
drive successful penetration of this technology.
Using IP technology and applications based on session initiation protocol (SIP),
companies can connect to employees located in remote branches or home offices and
provide expanded services and expertise to existing operations. However, to be
successful, companies need to build processes and policies that support their virtual
workforce in a secure environment and ensure that remote workers are well-trained and
support the company's culture.
With IP contact centers, companies now have a new way to improve services
through the virtualization of their contact centers, while also reducing operational
expenses
1.2.1 Telephone First Point Of Contact
The telephone is the first point of contact customers have with a business. A
good phone system can improve customer service, save time and money, reduce staff
turnover and frustration and grow the business. Telephone systems need to be easy to
operate and manage, give a good first impression, strengthen employee productivity,
and lead to ongoing efficiencies in time and hard dollars.

Voice and data traffic does not yet run on a unified network. The unified network
is coming because of the cost savings involved. Combining the numerous pieces of
voice and data communications equipment into a single, fully integrated
communications platform can mean faster response times and a lower total cost of
ownership.
Businesses of all sizes want to be able to take advantage of changing technology
without losing their current investment in an existing communications system. An open
architecture that allows for upgrading of both hardware and software. This enables
system to grow with a business.
1.2.2 SIP Application Server
SIP application servers are enabling intelligent communications applications.
The development of IP communications is linked to the Internet broadband networking
revolution. Its main characteristic is the positioning of a less expensive communications
system that is more fully featured than existing systems.
Equally reliable and available means of voice communications over a converged
IP Network is possible. The second phase of IP Telephony has been characterized by
its essential economic replacement dominance. By moving to standards based
platforms and taking advantage of new less expensive network services, IP Telephony
is becoming the obvious choice in the natural replacement cycle for telephony systems.
The third phase is starting to shift focus from tactical cost reductions to enhanced
functionality that can begin to deliver strategic value to enterprises poised to take
advantages of the underlying technology. At the heart of the strategic value proposition
is the promise that communications capabilities, when closely linked into business

changes in customers and markets situations.
Embedding communications applications in daily business processes improves
quality and efficiency, creates upswings in worker productivity, improves customer
loyalty, and increases enterprise profitability. Avaya Intelligent Communication
solutions reduce human latency. The time it takes for a desired action is for business
decisions can be made faster, easier and more accurately and offer profound
transformations in operations.
Intelligent communications mean users are no longer bound by the structured
communications modes and capabilities that have existed in the past, but are able to
construct communications applications that fit into the way you do business, enabling to
leverage the power of communications uniquely for each audience in business. Sales
personnel can have access to key data on their mobile devices, as well as being alerted
to shipping or other customer impacting issues, or operations managers can more
easily communicate and collaborate with vendors or downstream operations leveraging
presence and ad-hoc conferencing tools. The basis for creating this tight linkage of
business applications and communications capabilities resides in two emerging
technologies:
Web Services in a Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Session Initiated
Protocol (SIP). Web Services in a SOA construct provide the ability to create new
business application integration that incorporates communications services. SOA is
aimed at building high level interfaces between applications that allow them to share
information and process flows.
SOA promises to achieve higher levels of application interoperability which can
result in better application integration with business process, faster deployment of new

capabilities, and increased flexibility for application and business process modification.
SIP is the communications protocol of choice, providing a rich presence context that is a
key foundational element for creating intelligent communication capabilities. Improved
worker productivity, customer loyalty and enterprise profitability are achieved through
communication-enabling integrated applications
By communication-enabling their integrated applications and processes,
enterprises are able to gain the strategic value at the heart of IP telephony’s third phase
of evolution. For IT organizations, the convergence of communications over SIP and IP,
the convergence of IP communication with IT applications using Web Services and
SOA, and the ubiquitous access by fixed and mobile devices mean a fundamental
transformation to the way they architect their enterprise applications and support.
Phones have been migrated over to the SOA telephone system. IBM is the
defacto industry standard market leader in SOA. SOA provides the ability to provide
flexible response to changing market conditions.
IBM dominates SOA with 64% of the market, the rest of market is divided
between 12 other participants with measurable market share, none of whom have even
been able to garner as much as 8% of the market.
IBM dominates the SOA infrastructure markets with more than half of the market
because it has the infrastructure offering that can be used to achieve integration in a
heterogeneous IT environment and solid services support to permit the large
enterprises to change their business model.
The small-to-medium sized businesses, multi-site businesses, corporate branch
offices, and call centers are target markets. A PBX telephone system switches calls
between users within an enterprise while allowing sharing external telephone lines. The

system provides intuitive and easy to use system administration software. This allows
customer self-administration and remote administration.
1.3 Convergence of Voice and Data
Businesses have separate, incompatible networks to handle their
communication. The traditional telephone network circuit-switched network maintains a
dedicated line between calling parties for the duration of a call. The "packet-switched"
network replaces circuit switching. Internal local area networks and the Internet
combine voice, video, images or data.
Internet protocol packets of information are readied for transmission. Packets
are simultaneously combined with other unrelated packets of information and routed to
a final destination where this process is reversed. Packet-switched networks are more
efficient than the traditional circuit-switched telephone network, because network paths
are not dedicated to a single user, but instead are available to be shared by all users.
As a result, network capacity is allocated more efficiently. It is commonplace for
networks installed today to be able to support both voice and data usage with Internet
protocol packet-switching.
Most telecommunications systems do not address the needs of businesses that
need to transmit voice communications over both traditional telephone networks and
packet-switching networks. For example, businesses may wish to route internal calls
over their existing voice network and route calls between offices over packet-switched
networks, all using the same telecommunications system. We believe a significant
opportunity exists to provide small-to-medium sized and mid-enterprise businesses with
an integrated phone system that delivers the benefits of integrated, multi-function
telecommunications systems using Internet protocol packet switching networks as well
as traditional circuit-switched telephone networks.

1.4 Enterprise PBX
Premise-based PBX (Private Branch eXchange) is an automatic switchboard for
telephone systems. It provides the same basic functions for any business or enterprise
that the ranks of telephone operators with handfuls of wiring plugs did that you will
remember seeing in old movies. Those essential features provide switching and
connection between any two (or more) telephone users and make sure the connection
remains in place until it is ended, at which point the system properly terminates the
connection.
Any system that does this automatically for telephone calls within an organization
is a PBX. The reason businesses move to PBXes is to avoid requiring every employee
to have a direct line to the public telephone system, each of which incurs a connection
and a line charge. A smaller number of lines get shared by all the users and managed
by the PBX.
This saves money and is more efficient. All IP PBX systems are basically
exchange and extension managers for calls based on Internet protocol – also known as
VoIP and Internet telephony. The essential advantage they offer to small- to mediumsized businesses is the ability to add features that have only been affordable or
available to large businesses up to now. VoIP and Internet telephony are usually also
more cost-effective when looking at long-term operating costs, due to lower monthly
fees and much lower costs to connect and complete calls. There are three basic kinds
of premise-based phone systems. The first kind is called keyless systems or KSU-less
systems.
They are very lightweight phone systems designed for organizations with fewer
than 10 employees that also have very basic phone requirements. The advantage of
these systems is that they are very inexpensive and very easy to set up and run. They

are portable and can be moved easily if users relocate. However, in a typical keyless
system, there is little support and maintenance from your service provider.
1.5 Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Standard
IT decision makers in medium to large-sized businesses are adopting Session
Initiation Protocol (SIP) standard. Drivers, benefits, and barriers to implementation are
all part of the package. The business applications for SIP trunking and the advantages
of SIP as an enabler for unified communications are a central issue. SIP has become
the de facto industry standard for IP telephony development, the businesses and
enterprises of all sizes may be well served if they consider SIP as part of their evolving
network strategy.
The extension of the Internet Protocol as an application layer signaling protocol
in the telecommunications network infrastructure is used to implement systems that
work for both wireline and wireless networks. SIP enables the suite of IP-based Unified
Communications applications to be extended from PBX systems and/or an IP network
across different network transport services and end user devices to support remote
sites and mobile workers.
It allows any user on any network to have access to any content on-demand,
regardless of their physical location, the device they’re using, or the access modality
they’re employing. SIP is enabling Unified Communications.
SIP migration facilitates a number of customer advantages, including increased
enterprise productivity through improved support for distributed workforces, timelier and
higher quality responsiveness to customers, and reduced capital expenses (CAPEX)
and operating expenses (OPEX) for telecommunications infrastructures. On the small
business and enterprise side of the house, it gets even better.

SIP Based IP PBX: Market Description, Market Shares,
and Market Forecasts
Using SIP helps reduce the cost of networking, plus SIP trunks free the customer
from being locked into a specific system vendor or network provider.
1.5.1 SIP Advantages and Applications
When deployed in a network, SIP offers a collection of distinct advantages that
can be used to develop powerful and compelling end-user applications. SIP-enabled
telephony systems offer most of the call processing and feature invocation procedures
offered through SS7 — but in a different way. SS7 is a hierarchical, centralized, corebased protocol designed around the limited requirements of telephone sets — which
have no innate intelligence.
SIP, on the other hand, is a peer-to-peer protocol, which requires a different type
of network core infrastructure (preferably MPLS built on an IP platform) with a blend of
intelligence located at the edge (i.e., software or end-user device hardware or PBX),
complemented by more scalable, granular, and rapidly deployed services offered by
network operators.
1.5.2 SIP Part of IP Suite
As part of the overall IP suite, SIP is flexible and extraordinarily dynamic. Its
functionality can be extended to any number of applications, including enhanced
signaling for value-added services, VoIP, and XML-tagged applications.
Because XML is used to structure, store, and send information across the
network, it works well with SIP in environments where data needs to be retrieved and
used, as in a call center environment where customer records must be accessed, or in a
healthcare environment where access to customer data is critical. As a “lightweight,
text-based protocol,” SIP relies on a text-based command structure that uses the now
universally familiar HTTP syntax and URL addressing, both ideal for delivering

telephony over an IP network where the logical integration of applications (e.g., voice,
messaging, conferencing, and Web access) can create an enhanced customer
experience.
SIP is flexible and extraordinarily dynamic. Its functionality can be extended to
any number of applications, including enhanced signaling for value added services,
VoIP, and XML tagged applications.
1.5.3 Session Initiation Protocol
SIP is an application layer protocol, it can ride seamlessly across any transport
scheme and be transported across any access modality — cable, DSL, private line,
Ethernet, and wireless. SIP can enable a broad range of applications and remote
session capabilities (such as mobile application delivery and supply chain management)
without the need to provision additional transport services. From an enterprise point-ofview, this is critical because SIP offers seamless connectivity options for service
delivery for branch locations, remote workers, or trading partners.
Since branch offices account for anywhere from 30% to 90% of the enterprise’s
employees globally, depending on the industry, this will be a significant benefit for the
enterprise.
1.5.4 SIP Mobility and Presence Support
SIP is now incorporated into a range of user devices, including mobile wireless
devices and desktop clients. Using SIP, session establishment requests are not sent to
a device; they are sent to the network, which locates the user’s “presence” and
establishes a session based on the user’s current location and usage profile.

SIP Based IP PBX: Market Description, Market Shares,
and Market Forecasts
SIP unshackles users’ physical location from their logical address, they can have
fully integrated corporate communications — regardless of location. They can integrate
instant messaging and desktop collaboration applications.
Presence is a relatively new concept in the networking arena. The user’s client
publishes his or her availability within the presence application, and all users then has
access to that person’s availability via all services — office wireline voice, mobile, email, chat, etc. Users can customize their availability profile and publish it.
Communications are efficient.
SIP is the protocol that supports the universal availability of presence
information. A call center might use presence to ensure that a customer has the ability
to get back in touch with a call center agent who was helping them with a technical
support problem. With presence, the agent would not have to be in the call center, but
could be located by the network and have the call routed to them, regardless of where
they actually are, thus making it possible to fulfill and exceed customer service
requirements without reliance on a physical call center presence.
1.6 SIP Application Server
The SIP Application Server (SIP A/S) is a robust application development and
runtime platform for deploying applications that blend voice, video, data, and presence
to form advanced communications services for corporate users and consumers.
The SIP Application Server is the leading SIP development and runtime platform.
It is designed for Tier 1 wireline and wireless carriers, enterprises, new generation ISPs
and ASPs, and a rich ecosystem of ISVs and System Integrators (SIs). The SIP
Application Server is a mature, proven platform that meets carrier and large enterprises'
exacting requirements for scalability, high availability, service continuity, high
performance, and comprehensive management.

1.6.1 Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunking
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunking is the virtual equivalent of a traditional
business phone line. A SIP trunk is a virtual connection to the Public Switched
Telephone Network (PSTN), utilizing an internet connection. SIP is one of the specific
protocols that enable VoIP services to work.
A SIP trunk replaces the physical connections with virtual connections over
existing IP networks. Because information is transmitted through the internet and not
landline telephone lines, SIP integrates voice, video data and internet services into one
single line.
With the invention of VoIP and PBX, voice communications were no longer
restricted to traditional circuits and landline phones. Instead through SIP, a signaling
language designed to carry data like voice, video and instant messaging, can utilize the
internet to highly cut down on the cost and rigidity of older phone systems.
All SIP calls are local calls and users do not need a phone line. SIP Services are
offered by most business VoIP providers for small and large applications. SIP offers a
cost effective way for small businesses to maintain the professional presence. It
provides a way for large companies to maintain a local presence.
1.6.2 SIP Trunking:
SIP trunking delivers telephone and Unified Communications services over an
existing IP network, and replaces traditional telephone lines. Through a SIP trunk, VoIP
users can make calls directly to any phone on the PSTN without telephone lines by
connecting to a compatible hosted PBX system.

SIP Based IP PBX: Market Description, Market Shares,
and Market Forecasts
The only three necessary elements to operate a SIP trunk are the SIP Provider
that supplies the services, a phone system that has a trunk side to enable SIP, and a
border element to facilitate the connection between your enterprise network and the
PSTN or an external IP carrier network. These border elements can be a firewall or
switch, and are usually managed by a SIP Trunking provider. With only these three
simple elements any business can vastly boost its telecommunications reach. A pre
existing IP-PBX installed will only make the process even easier.
1.6.3 Advantages of SIP Trunking Services:
SIP means small businesses can appear large and professional with a level of
service reserved for more expensive solutions or Fortune 100 companies. This makes
it easier for a large business to maintain their local presence, as all SIP calls are local
calls. Customers do not have to dial a generic call center number.
SIP has inherent flexibility. It allows for users to add or subtract as many phone
lines as they need. Everything can be handled through dedicated web portals to tailor
the phone system to needs on the fly. SIP trunking can help mitigate disaster scenarios
by properly rerouting and prioritizing calls to different networks or phones.
Consolidated hardware and setups reduce the installation and maintenance
costs of adding or changing your existing phone system. The system can grow without
even adding new hardware, a new trunk for extra phone lines doesn’t require any new
devices.

SIP Based IP PBX: Market Description, Market Shares,
and Market Forecasts
The boundary between internal operations of the enterprise and its external
ecosystem is rapidly disappearing. Customers, markets, competitors, partners, and
regulators are inextricably linked.
Business leaders are challenged to move their enterprises to the next level of
competition. An effective digital business player, transformer, and disruptor position
depends on the effectiveness of employing digital technologies. Organizational,
operational, and business model innovation are needed to create ways of operating and
growing the business. It is a journey.
Many companies are using digital technology to create market disruption.
Amazon, Uber, Airbnb represent companies using effective disruptive strategic
positioning. As entire industries shift to the digital world, once buoyant companies are
threatened with disappearing. SIP is a significant aspect of telecommunications
applications server disruptive technology, it is enough to look at Avaya and the
bankruptcy to see there is a shift to cloud SIP solutions.
2.1.1 A Digital Transformation, An Approach That Enables
Organizations To Drive Changes In Their Business
Models And Ecosystems
Disruption in the business communications markets represents major opportunity
for vendors with cloud offerings. This is part of a larger digital transformation, a digital
approach to interconnecting everything that enables organizations to drive changes in
their business models and ecosystems.
By leveraging digital competencies, businesses can grow faster than they would
otherwise. A digital strategy, in conjunction with the appropriate unified communications
solution permits the implementation of innovative communications services. Digital

their end users innovate and compete more effectively. It is imperative that
organizations have a digital communications strategy in place.
Communications and collaboration solutions are migrating to the cloud in every
segment of small, medium and large business. In vertical markets, businesses are
managing competition that is characterized by disruption. Traditional verticals exploit
digital technologies.
Initiatives provide innovation in the marketplaces. Communications initiatives are
being used to leverage information from the Internet of Things (IoT) and video. New
functionality is being built out in the healthcare sector. Communication goes beyond
voice. Most people under 30 prefer to communicate via text.
SIP IP communications can provide an increase in the quantity and quality of
home and personal medical devices for monitoring patient health care. Care delivery is
being improved by having monitors linked into a full communications system. By
integrating the data from monitoring devices with a real-time communications system,
medical professionals can do their jobs better.
Making the workforce more engaged and productive by providing users with new
tools and solutions that are highly relevant to how they work in the DX era, while
delivering enterprise-class voice and video capabilities. Increased productivity is
achieved.

2.2.5 SIP Cloud Delivery Architectures Market Share
Cloud delivery architectures are iterated as multitenant and multi instance. Multi
tenant clouds are those, in which all customers share a common (single) software
instance. The second is multi-instance, in which each customer receives its own
software instance.
Both the multitenant and multi-instance architectures possess such cloud
characteristics as shared infrastructure (for example, data centers, racks, common
equipment and blades), shared tools (for example, provisioning, performance and
network management tools), per-user-per-month pricing, and elasticity to dynamically
add and subtract users.
Large businesses (typically those with more than 1,000 employees) have
traditionally preferred a separate software instance because of perceived security,
integration and customization benefits. UCaaS implementations are with the
multitenant architecture, because it is easier to support, manage, and enhance with new
capabilities and services.
In contrast, it takes more administration time to manage each user's separate
software instance in the multi-instance architecture.
The UCaaS market as a whole is transitioning. The early adopter phase has
passed to the mainstream phase.

2.3 SIP PBX Forecast
SIP enabled PBX and IP PBX market forecasts indicate a bifurcation in the
market between hardware servers and cloud enabled services, either for soft switches
and or Unified Communications (UC). The SIP based voice equipment and services
market PBX phone systems, voice over IP gateways, UC applications and IP phones
markets at $14.15 billion in 2016 are anticipated to grow strongly in the cloud computing
segment to reach $59 billion by 2023.
Strong growth is anticipated as mega data centers and hyper data centers create
networks inside the data centers that force economies of scale and move users beyond
server solutions to cloud solutions. The SIP IP technology is a softwre solution that can
reside anywhere, on a PBX hardware server or inside a cloud as a software solution.
Other combinations of hardware and software are done.

What matters is that the broad feature function package known as a PBX gets
implemented and made available to users. The SIP trunking is more efficient for users,
creating clearer, more consistent voice communications.

2.3.1 Digital Private Branch Exchange (PBX) At the End of
Its Life Cycle
Consolidating into a single platform the numerous UC solutions that
organizations typically have deployed within their environments — reducing the cost
and complexity of multiple solutions. Embedding communications into applications in
which employees work so that they can just clickto-call, conference, or collaborate from
within the application to engage other participants more productively.
A sales person who does most of his/her work in Salesforce.com likes the digital
integration with application software. Integrating and customizing communications into
line of business (LoB) processes and applications to drive enhanced performance within
the organization.
Upgrading a manually-intensive manufacturing process to a more contextual,
automated one that includes embedded communication alerts and notifications for

designated persons, along with intuitive links to messaging, presence, and collaboration
technologies in order to help address a situation in real time is being done. Systems
minimize a work stoppage or downtime.
Vertical market applications can benefit from these more user-defined
capabilities. Utilizing a mobile-first user experience with an intuitive, mobile-first design
paradigm that makes people more productive on mobile devices with a less-restrictive
form factor. Enabling employees to access enterprise services anywhere with the same
intuitiveness and simplicity of their consumer apps. This is very different compared to a
traditional enterprise, IT-defined desktop environment.
SIP IP is being used to easily create unique, custom communications
experiences that project a company’s offerings over standard, off-the-shelf experiences
for verticals such as hospitality, healthcare, retail, government, media, and
entertainment. This enables users to rapidly use focused, context sensitive
communications applications or engage the business as required.
Mobility is a core part of the story — and a major driver. It reaches across most
or all of the technologies. It increasingly offers end users multiple device support; a
simpler, more intuitive user experience; a mobile-centric design device that features
support for independence.
Features, functions, and rules associated with the user, not the mobile device
and mobile business applications are used to communicate and collaborate internally in
real time as well as externally. In a global business environment, companies large and
small have mobile workforces in varying degrees that include executives, knowledge
workers, telecommuters, sales staff, service personnel, and field workers.
The following trends are driving the market:
Increasing emphasis on the use case to help justify customer investment

Support for a simpler end-user experience
Support for a more intuitive user interface.
End users are increasingly accessing their business applications from a browser
Delivery model is maturing
Communications service providers (CSPs) expand managed and hosted/cloud
offerings
UC vendors add cloud and hybrid solutions either directly and/or in conjunction
with channel partners.
Google with Google Apps and the increased focus by Microsoft Office on
browser-based access to productivity tools, users are now able to work completely in
the browser from anywhere in the cloud application delivery model.
The integration of collaborative applications and business processes is becoming
essential. Via APIs and SDKs, organizations have started embedding communications
within the applications they use.
UC is no longer another app that sits on the desktop, the communications
functions are brought forward and made available to the users in context, when they
need them, and how they need them, without switching applications.
The business model is slowly shifting from upfront capital expense to recurring
per user or seat/per month consumption and pricing (i.e., operational expense).
Tighter integration of videoconferencing with UC&C environments is occurring;
WebRTC gaining traction as a video (and voice) user endpoint.

SIP Based IP PBX: Market Description, Market Shares,
and Market Forecasts
Mobility has become central to improving employee productivity, changing how
information is accessed and exchanged, creating new revenue streams, and enabling
remote/flexible working solutions, among other benefits.
With mobility as a core part of the UC&C story, vendors can offer end users an
increasing ability to communicate and collaborate internally, as well as externally, in real
time.
Network – With a lot of provider’s simply rebranding SIP trunking service hosted
on other provider’s networks, it’s important to distinguish if the network is hosted and
run by SIP provider directly. Everything is easier without a middleman.
Security – A standard concern for almost any service over the internet, it’s
important to ensure the necessary security measures are in place to keep your
information safe. With all of data transmitted over the Internet users want a SIP trunk to
be secured with a solid, protected network and anti-fraud system in place to monitor any
feedback and mitigate any risks.
Number Porting –keep existing phone number, make sure provider is capable
of number porting from specific region. Most services and providers do offer porting, but
it can be limited in different regions around the world.
Customer Service – Although SIP Trunking itself does a good job and disaster
mitigation, if everything goes down users want to make sure to get ahold of the provider
as soon as possible. A five-minute outage could quickly turn into a problem.

connect.
Unified communications and collaboration can include components like:
Instant messaging
Presence – knowing if a contact is free or busy
Unified messaging – the ability to retrieve all your messages from one central
location
Conferencing applications – to connect larger groups and allow them to share
information and ideas
Teamwork applications – to coordinate work on group projects
Video conferencing – on your PC, mobile device and using room-based systems
Mobile applications – extending unified communications and collaboration to
smartphones and tablets

calls to the Internet, UC eliminates or greatly reduces reliance on phone company
services. A UC implementation for hospitals includes advanced uses, direct integration
with electronic health record (EHR) systems.
Business phone system requirements include the desire to eliminate poor voice
quality, outages or dropped calls, the need for better call routing, a reduction in contract
or maintenance costs and a desire for additional features. Internet versus traditional
phone lines potentially bring big cost savings.
An array of available features on advanced phone systems include audio, video
and Web conferencing. The ability to program speed dials through a computer interface
is a compelling feature.
Sometimes users want multiple voicemail boxes. Occasionally employees share
desks but want their own separate phone system on that desk. A message service can
greet callers and route calls to the appropriate staff member.
3.7.1 Mitel Phone System Offers Flexibility
With the rise of mobile communication, the anytime / anyplace nature of business
and the realities of multitasking have raised the stakes. With multiple offices, a number
of employees who travel regularly or staffers who work remotely, a phone system
requires flexibility.
Mitel phone system offers a central hub that can seamlessly manage
telecommunications traffic without compromising quality or productivity. The right
system offers freedom and flexibility for all users.
Traditional phone systems use landlines and trunks, and transmit voice using
analog or digital devices. Each employee has his or her own phone extension and
voice mailbox as well as conferencing and caller ID features. Traditional systems are

highly reliable and can continue working even during power outages and other network
interruptions.
There is plenty of infrastructure in place. Traditional phone systems are best for
businesses that make mostly local calls. They can be costly for those that do a lot of
long distance and international calling.
3.7.2 Mitel VoIP
VoIP uses a dedicated or shared Internet connection to one or more locations
using special IP phones. These systems reduce telecommunications costs by
delivering calls over the Internet, requiring that users pay for extensions being used,
reducing staff, and eliminating costly voice lines and local and long distance contracts.
A basic VoIP system lowers operating cost by eliminating multiple vendors and
communications providers.
Refocusing IT staff from hardware-based systems to other areas of the business
saves resource. VoIP systems do not require the large capital expense that traditional
phone systems do. They use existing computer networks. The applications and
management of VoIP systems reside with the service provider. Instead of spending
money on a costly capital expenditure, Mitel VoIP gives a predictable monthly operating
expense.
Updates to VoIP systems are managed through an online admin portal. Instead
of sending a technician to physically move a phone line, the user simply moves his or
her phone.
Mitel can remotely configure a new jack or the phone is reprogrammed through
the portal with a new extension. Voice is treated as an application running on the
network, meaning that only one data network has to be maintained.

VoIP also allows for more flexibility than traditional systems. Businesses with
multiple offices can be connected with remote employees. Phones can be relocated
without complex hardware installations. VoIP can still make calls from the network.
Access to an Internet connection means calls can be routed to mobile devices or
remote computers. Users can receive and respond to voicemail messages. VoIP
Internet connection requires an optimal network performance to ensure acceptable
voice quality and reliability.
Wireless phone users in the past have had substandard call quality issues. With
ubiquitous broadband, makes wireless connectivity as good as desktop phones.
Business can be seriously adversely affected by poor phone service.
Call quality, dial tone, and connection are fundamental phone service
requirements. These fundamentals depend on remaking network infrastructures that is
optimized for data, to be reconfigured for converged data and voice traffic. VoIP needs
to take priority over data. Systems that monitor and prioritize voice over data traffic are
not universal.
Telecommunications managers need to evaluate network performance as a
whole in the context of the ability to handle converged data and voice traffic. If the
business depends on applications and quality user experiences, t Mitel Phone System
Offershen an expensive network is necessary.
Teleco administrators need to configure broadband networks to support VoIP.
Premises-based deployments require substantial up-front investment in infrastructure.
The cost of staffing personnel to manage and maintain the network is an issue.

3.7.3 Mitel Cloud Solution
As storage and bandwidth charges fall, cloud solutions are becoming more
affordable for business communications systems implementations. The cloud is able to
reduce licensing costs and IT staff. With a cloud solution, a business can focus on
growing their business. The cloud requires a low up-front investment and no software
or hardware and licensing. You pay only for what you use.
Companies have been uncomfortable with cloud deployments because they do
not like to relinquish control over their network. Some believe that the cloud is not as
secure as a premises based solution. This, however, is a myth. Cloud solutions can be
highly secure and reliable. In fact, they may be more so when you consider the
disasters that can strike a workplace, such as power outages and weather-related
events.
3.7.4 Mitel Hybrid Solution
A hybrid deployment utilizes combined premises-based and cloud solutions to
build a network. It lets users maintain control where wanted and use existing
infrastructure, resulting in a significant cost savings, flexibility and scalability. A hybrid
solution can save the business thousands of dollars from having to upgrade its entire
LAN infrastructure to accommodate IP-only phones.
A business phone system is comprised of desktop and wireless devices.
Features support better, faster and more efficient communication. Beyond standard
features are call transfer, speed dialing. and voicemail.

A pool of phones can be shared by multiple employees. Real estate agents and
financial traders are often out of the office. They may not need dedicated phones. Hot
desking allows users to enter an access code into any phone on the system and
automatically have access to personalized phone settings, speed dials, and voicemail.
Hot desking makes phone sharing possible and can help businesses save on
equipment and office space.
Auto Attendant has become a widely available business phone feature and
comes standard with many systems. Some systems allow callers to search the
directory by entering the first three letters of the individual’s last name.
Automatic call distribution routes calls when customers call a company but do not
need to speak with anyone in particular. The automatic call distribution feature allows
system administrators to determine how calls will be distributed within an organization
or call center.
The automatic call distribution feature routes calls to technicians who have been
idle longest. Or, they can be routed to staff in order of seniority, technical expertise or
location. A conference call, or audio conferencing, feature allows users to join more
than two phone lines on a call. Depending on the system, though, that number of
participants can range from three to many.
Advanced systems include the capability for video conferencing. Many service
providers offer video conferencing. It is important to work with a provider that is reliable
and can handle the bandwidth needed to support a video conference.
Unified messaging takes care of the collection of voice mail, email, fax and text
messages in one interface. The access point for messages could be a computer
application that is included with a phone system.

3.7.5 Mitel Presence
Presence is the status indicator of each person on the system. It allows every
user to see each other’s status at a glance so they can decide the method for
communication that is needed. If a user sees the person, it is possible to choose to
instant message instead. Another user would benefit from seeing his co-worker’s status
set to gone for the day.
While the do not disturb (DND) feature is widely available, different systems
handle the process differently. With some systems, callers get a busy signal or hear a
recorded message that the person being called does not wish to be disturbed. Other
systems’ DND feature sends calls to voice mail or allows you to route them to another
person.
Follow me feature is the polar opposite of DND. It’s a type of call routing that
allows users to program a list of numbers to be tried, in order, for locating a person who
is not at the desk.
Mitel is able to install the system and provide support for technical issues. Mitel
specializes in installing particular systems in businesses of every size. Training and
support are vital.
Phone systems are priced all over the place. Some that have low monthly fees
have large up-front costs. Others are reasonably priced at the outset and on a monthly
basis but then require regular and costly upgrades or service fees.
The design of the user interface is key. Is the phone easy to use? Will employees
(and customers, if they’ll be using them, too) be able to figure out how?

3.8 Microsoft SfBS Premises-Based Version of
Skype
Microsoft is a major UCaaS provider partnered with the communications service
providers (CSPs). CSPs generally have pursued a multi-instance cloud version of
Microsoft Skype for Business (SfB) Server (SfBS). SfBS is the premises-based version
of Skype.
With a full feature set, select partners have virtualized via a combination of their
own and Microsoft tools. During the past year, Microsoft has begun to emphasize
Microsoft Skype for Business Online (SfBO) — delivered by Microsoft personnel and
run out of Microsoft data centers. This is delivered as part of Office 365. Through a
series of licensing policies, R&D investment and marketing tools, Microsoft has sent the
message that the future is centered on SfBO.
This pivot from SfBS (the on-premises version) to SfBO has strained some of the
Microsoft-partner relationships. UCaaS vendors include AT&T, BT, Interoute, NTT
Communications (Arkadin) and Orange Business Services. They have invested in
Microsoft Skype UC, and they are all navigating this changing landscape.

Network functions virtualization (NFV) is a network architecture concept that uses
the technologies of IT virtualization to virtualize entire classes of network node functions
into building blocks that may connect, or chain together, to create communication
services.
Network functions virtualization (NFV) is an initiative to virtualize the network
services that are now being carried out by proprietary, dedicated hardware. If
successful, NFV will decrease the amount of proprietary hardware that's needed to
launch and operate network services.

4.2 Scale: Cloud 2.0 Mega Data Center
Containers
Containers have real promise. The advantage of containers is scale. Until there
is a Cloud 2.0 mega data center with 100,000 servers and 100,001 switchers operating
at 40 GBPS, 100 GBPS, and 400 GBPS, there is not enough scale to make the point to
point connections that provide complete application integration. Connecting one point
to every other point in the data center depends on scale and that makes the point to
point connection work.

Once the scale is in place, software is needed to manage the facility
automatically. At this scale, humans do not know enough to keep the systems running.
4.2.1 Data Center Architectures Evolving
Data centers are modular, reaching thousands of VMs over the host. Networks
are shifting from the traditional three-tier model (top-of-rack/aggregation/core) to
flattened (leaf/TOR-spine/core) topology. These changes imply a change in traffic from
a north-south orientation to an east-west orientation and consequently, 75% of data
center traffic is now east-west.

5.3.5 Avaya Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
Avaya Inc filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to reduce its debt load of $6.3 billion.
It has no interest in selling its call center business. The bankruptcy illustrates
challenges Avaya faces as it transitions to software and services from hardware.
Avaya had planned to sell its call center business but did not reach a deal with
buyout firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice LLC, which had been in the lead to acquire it for
about $4 billion. Avaya now has a focus on its debt. The company is restructuring debt
with creditors. The original goal was to have one in place before bankruptcy, but an
agreement was not reached.
An affiliate of Citigroup is providing a $725 million loan to fund its operations
during the reorganization. Avaya uses the loan to reassure jittery vendors who had
been shortening payment periods and reducing credit terms on fears about the
company's financial health.
Decisive action to addresses capital structure was taken by initiating a
restructuring through chapter 11. Operations remain strong, and this path will provide
enhanced flexibility to invest in innovation and growth.

Avaya listed $5.5 billion in assets and $6.3 billion in debts.

company. Avaya needs to shed debt as its focus shifts away from hardware.
Networking and collaboration remain a priority. It is positioned to be responsive to the

shift toward mobile phones and cloud-based tools for communication. In a tight market
for enterprise network equipment, the company has been changing its focus.
It plans to keep operating during the bankruptcy thanks to its cash from
operations and US$725 million in financing. Avaya said its foreign affiliates are not
included in the filing and will not be affected. The company plans to keep its contact
center business, but is in talks to sell other assets.
The Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing is intended to cut Avaya’s debt and interest
expenses. The company reported $3.7 billion in in revenue for the year ended Sept. 30,
2016, down 9 percent from the previous year. It posted an operating loss of $262
million.
5.3.6 Avaya Revenue
At Sept. 30 2016, Avaya owed its pensioners $1.7 billion. Avaya's revenue fell to
$958 million in the fourth quarter ended on Sept. 30 from $1 billion a year earlier. For
the fiscal year, the company posted a net loss of $750 million.
Avaya's Private Equity owners Silver Lake Partners and TPG Capital are
considering a sale of telecommunications equipment company Avaya that could value it
at $6 billion and $10 billion, including debt.
Goldman Sachs is helping Avaya evaluate expressions of interest that have been
received relative to specific assets, as well as in exploring other potential strategic
opportunities.

Avaya is positioning to address software-defined networking, IoT, and cloudbased platforms that work on many different devices and the web. An all-in-one
collaboration platform called Avaya Equinox can carry voice and video calls, text
messaging, web collaboration and streaming of events.
Equinox can run on mobile clients, PCs, and Avaya’s Vantage, a desktop device
that’s like a phone but with a large touchscreen for running applications. The company
has a SDK (software development kit) for integrating Equinox into productivity
applications.
The demand for UC hardware has fallen in favor of software and cloud-based
services. Avaya seeks to address the opportunities inherent in providing
communication via cloud infrastructure.
Avaya has struggled to keep up with unified communications competitors, such
as Cisco and Microsoft, especially as services become more cloud-oriented. The Avaya
bankruptcy filing and restructuring gives the vendor a chance to create true cloud
services. If an organization wants to buy a cloud service from Avaya, that organization
has to build its own cloud or buy one from an Avaya partner.
Partners do not make money selling cloud services like they do selling hardware.
Partners and legacy vendors are losing business to cloud providers. They have to
accelerate growth to make up for the loss of the core PBX, telephony business.
Avaya's communications platform as a service, Zang, is a pure cloud offering.
Zang's roadmap is aggressive and positions it against cloud UC vendors, such as
RingCentral and 8x8, it has yet to prove itself in the market.

Network security is a top priority for IT leaders. Avaya has not provided the level
of security that organizations need. This drives customers to Avaya competitors.
Avaya is repositioning to address networking from a user perspective, Wi-Fi is more
strategic and important than a wired network. Avaya is behind the competition in this
repositioning.
Avaya could expand its enterprise wireless services. Avaya has an OEM
partnership with Xirrus for its Wi-Fi services. Avaya restructuring needs to expand its
wireless business by building its own or buying a Wi-Fi network. Wi-Fi is more strategic
and important than a wired network.
Avaya has had some success reinventing itself as a CPaaS provider with Zang
and Breeze, an API development platform. Avaya customers use the Breeze platform
to build custom apps or integrations into their business processes.
Avaya cloud platform aims to ease network management. Avaya looks to bridge
on-premises contact center to the cloud. AI and messaging are significant aspects of
unified communications trends.
The enterprise desktop phone simply is not used as much anymore. Employees
are traveling, moving from one workplace to another and using mobile devices for all
communications. Younger employees do not use voice communications anymore;
messaging is the choice and has been for several years.

5.7.13 Ciena Blue Planet Container-Based Micro-Services
Architecture
Web-scale software for simplified operations and rapid feature adoption
Disruptive micro-service architecture
As more applications are being deployed in the cloud, the limitations of older,
monolithic software applications are becoming more apparent. Changes made to a
small part of the application require the entire monolith to be rebuilt and re-deployed.
Scaling equates to scaling of the entire application rather than just the components that
require more resources. As a result, changes and improvements are made at a glacial
pace, new features are adopted slowly, and integration with third-party integration
systems is difficult. In addition, the increasing CAPEX and OPEX required to operate
and upgrade these platforms is becoming a material burden on the balance sheet.
The micro-services architecture was developed to address these challenges. In a
micro-services architecture, an application is built using a combination of loosely
coupled and service-specific software containers that communicate using APIs, instead
of using a single, tightly coupled monolith of code. This development methodology
makes an application easier to enhance, maintain, and scale, making it prevalent in
cloud environments.
Ciena’s Blue Planet is built upon a container-based micro-services architecture.
Unlike the SDN and NFV solutions from large incumbent suppliers that package multiple
monolithic software applications focused on individual technology domains, Blue Planet

provides a vendor-agnostic and programmable software platform that is highly
customizable for the network operator. Beyond SDN management and control (full
FCAPS) for Ciena’s packet and packet-optical networking products, Blue Planet can be
tailored to support use cases ranging from NFV service orchestration to multi-vendor
automation, and/or multi-domain service orchestration.

Ciena Blue Planet Container Based Architecture
Figure 47.
Benefits of Blue Planet's Container-Based Micro-Service
Architecture
One platform, multiple use cases: Users can easily customize and tailor the
platform by choosing the best software to accomplish a particular task, benefiting from
best-of-breed solutions by utilizing the latest technologies or third-party solutions.
Resilience: With Blue Planet’s architecture, if one component of a system fails, it
will not bring down the whole platform or affect the service being delivered.
Web-scale: As the demand on the platform increases, rather than scaling all the
components, scaling can be focused on the problematic micro-services that need to
grow with more resource allocation. The result is frugal use of existing resources,
lowering OPEX and improving ROI.
Agility and ease of deployment: Since each service is decoupled, services can be
upgraded and new features can be added and deployed independently of the rest of the
platform, with no downtime or interruption in the overall business.
Modularity: The cost of replacing a service is much cheaper in a micro-servicesbased architecture. As long as each service adheres to the API convention, the service
can be evolved or entirely replaced with much less technical and business risk. That

primarily by a decrease in sales of high-end router products.
Sales of switching products were flat due to higher sales of data center switches,
flat sales of switches used in campus environments (which comprises the majority of
this product category), and lower sales of storage products.
Flat sales of switches used in campus environments was driven by uncertainty in
the macro environment. This led to a slowdown in customer spending. A challenging
environment with significant volatility and a highly competitive landscape characterizes
the market in which Cisco competes.
The network plays an increasingly important role enabling customers to
aggregate, automate, and draw insights from highly distributed data, where there is a
premium on security and speed. This is driving the adoption of entirely new IT
architectures and organizational structures.
Technology can deliver the outcomes customers need to achieve. Cisco strategy
is to lead customers in their digital transition with solutions that implement pervasive,
industry-leading security. The aim is to intelligently connect nearly everything that can
be digitally connected.
To deliver on strategy, Cisco is focused on providing highly secure, automated
and intelligent solutions. These are built on infrastructure that connects highly
distributed data that is globally dispersed across organizations. Together with an
ecosystem of partners and developers, Cisco is able to provide technology, services,
and solutions.
The aim is to enable customers to gain insight and advantage from the
distributed data with scale, security and agility.

Microsoft SOA
Service Orientation (SO) is the natural evolution of current development models.
Object-oriented models came before the component-based development model in the
90s. Service orientation (SO) retains the benefits of component-based development
(self-description, encapsulation, dynamic discovery and loading).
There is a shift in paradigm from remotely invoking methods on objects, to one of
passing messages between services. Schemas describe the structure of messages.
Contracts are used to define acceptable message exchange patterns and policies to
define service semantics. This promotes interoperability, and thus provides adaptability
benefits, as messages can be sent from one service to another without consideration of
how the service handling those messages has been implemented.

To developers and solution architects, service orientation is a means
for creating dynamic, collaborative applications. By supporting run-time
selection of capability providers, service orientation allows applications
to be sensitive to the content and context of a specific business
process, and to gracefully incorporate new capability providers over
time.
To the IT manager, service orientation is a means for effectively
integrating the diverse systems typical of modern enterprise data
centers. By providing a model for aggregating the information and
business logic of multiple systems into a single interface, service
orientation allows diverse and redundant systems to be addressed
through a common, coherent set of interfaces.
To the CIO, service orientation is a means for protecting existing IT
investments without inhibiting the deployment of new capabilities. By
encapsulating a business application behind capability-based
interfaces, the service model allows controlled access to mission-critical
applications, and creates the opportunity for continuous improvement of
the implementation behind that interface. Service orientation protects
investments from the swirl of change.
To the business analyst, service orientation is a means of bringing
information technology investments more in line with business strategy.
By mapping employees, external capability providers and automation
systems into a single model, the analyst can better understand the cost
tradeoffs associated with investments in people, systems and sourcing.
To Microsoft, service orientation is a crucial prerequisite to creating
applications that leverage the network to link the actors and systems
that drive business processes. This application model transcends any
single device, crossing boundaries respectfully, and rejecting the
restrictions of synchronicity. SOA-enabled solutions pull together a
constellation of services and devices to more effectively meet your
business challenges than the disconnected applications of the past.

The architectural concepts associated with SOA enable loose coupling. Loose
coupling is the fundamental principle behind SOA, enabling us to summarize up the
benefit of SOA in a single word: agility.

SIP Based IP PBX: Market Description, Market Shares,

As traditional application architectures evolved from the mainframe application
through client server to multi-tier web applications, the applications have remained to a
large extent tightly coupled. In other words, each of the subsystems that comprise the
greater application is not only semantically aware of its surrounding subsystems, but is
physically bound to those subsystems at compile time and run time. The ability to
replace key pieces of functionality in reaction to a change in a business model, or of
distributing an application as individual business capabilities, is simply not possible.
With a Service Oriented Architecture the application’s functionality is exposed
through a collection of services. These services are independent and encapsulate both
the business logic and its associated data. The services are interconnected via
messages with a schema defining their format; a contract defining their interchanges
and a policy defining how they should be exchanged.

5.14.8 Mitel Cloud Technology
The key to the successful deployments is the user experience. Giving users a
vastly improved user experience in terms of voice codecs, but not removing any of the
services that they’re used to, like ringback tones, prepay—these are the key things, as
well as introducing new services based on VoLTE as a platform, such as VoWiFi.
VoLTE, is the catalyst to moving to an all IP, all IMS-based core network, which
fundamentally means this is the first time that a mobile network operator’s servers for
voice have been independent of the user agent (the device) and the access network.
This means that VoLTE is an enabler for the next generation of services—not just voice
calling. They enable the operator to make the move to things like contextualized
communications, multi-device support, support for SIMless devices and new paradigms
enabled by WebRTC and other technologies.
A move to the cloud is actually a two-step process: the first is virtualization, and
the second is the “cloudification” of the applications. It’s really the latter that enables
NFV; it’s where you re-architect the products to fully exploit and realize the benefits that
NFV would provide. Virtualized deployments have been around for a number of years
now. Commercial deployments of VoLTE that are virtualized. The next stage is NFV,
cloudification and fully automated networks.
5.14.9 Mitel’s Approach To Developing 5G Technologies
5G is more than just another “G.” It’s actually a new type of network: dynamic,
automated, supporting the shift from communication between people to communication
between things. This actually means a new way of architecting your network based on
NFV technology and, more significantly, microservices. Mitel is at the leading edge of
microservices architecture and exposing the network via open APIs.

In the next three years, the biggest change in networks will be the move to a
DevOps model. This will be a paradigm shift for the way operators build and operate

continuous development and continuous innovation within the networks.

Vonage is a leading provider of business VoIP. User lines are available as low as $19.99.
What I really like about Vonage Business, is their incredibly easy-to -use online portal.
They make it really simple to add and remove features and forward calls to your cell
phone, which is great.
