Collision of suppliers

  • Mobile and fixed line serviced providers, keen to provide the bandwidth.
  • Traditional telco equipment providers that are keen to maintain their existing relationships and sell IP PBXs that enable voice communications and other services over IP networks
  • Data networking vendors that want you to replace your traditional PBX with their own kit.
  • Software vendors that believe you don’t even need a PBX
  • End use device suppliers that want to own the user interface to UC
  • The suppliers of certain “web 2.0” services that think they are the best way forward
  • Video conferencing vendors that will tell you no UC experience is complete without the ability to see, as well as hear, the participants in an online conference.


Unified communications is about providing a single platform to drive and manage all the different methods via which employees now communicate with each other and the outside world.Quocirca's Bob Tarzey looks at the options for SMEs.
