IP Telephony with System i

Chip McClelland, IBM

September 12, 2006 FASUG Meeting

A significant shift in the technology of telephony is sweeping over the market as telephony meets the information age. Just as surely as VHS tapes gave way to DVDs, traditional telephony will be replaced by IP telephony. This shift is well underway with IP Telephony outselling traditional telephony for the first time in 2005. Importantly, this transition from early adopters to mainstream is accompanied by the transition from proprietary solutions to those based on an open standard for telephony called SIP. With this standard, IP Telephony promises more than just cost savings, it will be a platform for innovation with existing applications. System i IP Telephony brings it heritage of reliability, security and support for open standards to provide our customers a differentiated choice versus today's market.
