Frost & Sullivan: Technology Convergence Is Vital For Business Agility, Workforce Productivity And Cost Savings

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- It is challenging for businesses to accomplish what is needed today with yesterday's information and communications technology (ICT). To maximize agility and productivity in the current and future climates, businesses will require an integrated convergence of network, wireline and wireless access and applications.

Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan has published two white papers entitled " Technology Convergence and Information Velocity: The Engines for Business Agility and Workforce Productivity " and " Simplification Through Convergence: Reducing Cost and Complexities ," which examine the business benefits of uniting technology to drive the enterprises' vision.

Businesses that ignore advancements in technology will struggle as they work harder and faster in an attempt to reach performance levels that are outside old technologies' capabilities. In time, these antiquated technologies become an impediment; and worse, these businesses find themselves at a competitive disadvantage to those businesses that routinely progress with technology.

Furthermore, network traffic has its own unique patterns of highs and lows that require network planning based on peak demand across all traffic types—voice, data and video.  Sub-optimal preparation and traffic management contribute to unused or dormant capacity. While performance quality is suitable, the enterprise will be overspending.

To address this issue, network convergence combines all traffic types onto a single network to improve bandwidth utilization that, in turn, contributes to optimized network expenditures.  A lynchpin to effective network convergence is dynamic bandwidth allocation; this allows multiple traffic types to coexist while governing total bandwidth consumption and also maintaining performance standards for each traffic type. 

Potential cost savings with convergence does not end with optimized bandwidth utilization. Other direct cost savings materialize with service companions to a multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) network, such as session initiation protocol (SIP) Trunking and mobile integration.
