IBM applies 3Com telephony solution
The market will never look back. That market, according to
Allan Scott, Senior Director for Global Alliances of 3Com Corporation, is the
IP telephony technology market. "In 2005, IP telephony surpassed
traditional telephones. And the market will never look back," Scott told
Infotech. “The greatest growth (of IP
telephony sales) is in the small and medium enterprise (SME) segment, which
happens to be the sweet spot of the IBM System i. 3Com has been shipping IP telephony solutions to the mid-market
since 1998 with over 28,000 IT telephony customers to date. This figure is
expected to increase further with IBM’s customers patronizing it,” he
added. The reasons for making the
switch to IP telephony vary from company to company. The most common benefits
cited can be categorized in two areas: cost savings and business advantage.
"With 3Com announcing the first-ever solution of its kind on System I,
you can join more than 28,000 pure IP telephony customers of all sizes that
3Com has served since 1998. In support of open standards, the 3Com IP
telephony application will be available on System i5 and select iSeries
models on the Linux operating system," an IBM brochure stated.
