ffective communications are the foundation for any good team, and the transportation
and logistics (T&L) sector is no exception. Charged with managing the warehousing,
inventory, and movement of freight across the supply chain — both through
internal and external distribution networks — T&L professionals rely on high levels of team
collaboration to get the job done right.
By helping companies leverage the knowledge, talents, and insights of their people, effective
team communications ensures that customers get their deliveries when, how, and where
they want them. Meeting those expectations in today’s fast-paced, demanding distribution
environment requires reliable, clear voice and data logistics communications that start at the
warehouse and end at the point of delivery.
In this white paper, we explore the key challenges that T&L companies are facing in today’s
business environment and hear how instant push-to-talk and advanced video surveillance can
help them develop streamlined suppl
The digital service revolution is well underway. For communications service providers (CSPs), it means going beyond traditional voice and data and upgrading their entire digital communications infrastructure. Research shows enterprise-class organizations are allocating heavy dollars towards communications solutions and prefer a single provider for digital services. This is a massive opportunity for CSPs to expand their services, generate more revenue, grow profit and increase market share. However, the majority of enterprises reported not receiving a consistently excellent experience with their most recent service contract. As a result, many switch to new providers. CSPs are losing credibility and the loyalty of their customers because of legacy and traditional systems that constrain their ability to act quickly. Enterprises are looking for CSPs who understand their complex business and can offer a full portfolio of digital services with quality and creativity to meet their needs.
With unified communications and collaboration (UCC), you can address these challenges by helping people to connect more efficiently and intuitively. You can use UCC to bring together multiple forms of communications, like voice, video and data services, and software applications into a single environment, making it easier to connect. Business processes improve as a result. When you embrace UCC in your business communications, you can increase employee collaboration and productivity in three major ways. First, it can reduce communications latency by making it easier to find the right person and get an answer to a business question. Second, it can help you to manage workflows by making it easier f

Once relegated to early adopters and casual home users, VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) has matured. An essential element of any unified communications (UC) system, it is now the standard method of voice communication in business, education, government and healthcare. If your organization has not already migrated to VoIP, the question is not so much if it will, but when. Cost is the primary driver, since the data network performs double duty by carrying voice traffic as well. VoIP also offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, zoned security, intelligent call routing, disaster recovery, video, teleconferencing, status updates and other advanced features.
The transition to VoIP presents a number of challenges, including
assessing the ability of your network to handle not only additio
When it comes to worker safety, mitigating downtime, and boosting
productivity, nothing is faster than right NOW. Organizations across
various industry segments — construction, food and beverage, chemical
and industrial, and transportation equipment manufacturers — are
juggling a mix of communication devices, slowing response times. Gaps
in coverage, poor battery life and aging equipment reduce your ability to
safely and efficiently meet production deadlines. The power of NOW puts
instant communications at your workers’ fingertips — because when
communication slows, production slows.
Manufacturers today are under immense pressure to produce goods
safely, efficiently and profitably. Meeting these goals requires reliable,
clear voice and data communications. So the production line is always
moving. So well-executed logistics exceed expectations. So materials
and operations are tracked to maintain efficiency. So your most valuable
assets — your people — are safe and connected.
In today’s increasingly mobile world, Energy workers require instant communication and access to data intelligence wherever the job
may take them. From the oil rig to the electric grid and everywhere in between, having the right data, in the right hands, at the right time,
no matter the environment or device of choice — is simply non-negotiable. Organizations across various Energy segments — oil & gas,
electric utilities, water utilities, and mining — are currently juggling a mix of communication devices and are hindered by gaps in coverage,
poor battery life and fragile equipment that cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions.
Yet, citizens rely on their homes being heated in the winter, on clean running water, and on lights that turn on when they flip the switch.
Meeting these expectations requires reliable, clear voice and data communications for Energy workers day-in and day-out. So oil & gas
workers can communicate safely in hazardous environments. So precious resources are

In the business world, the convergence of voice and data – as well as video and mobility – has evolved into unified communications, an enabler that is difficult to pigeonhole. Encompassing voice, data, video, mobility, and more, it can be located on site or it can be delivered/hosted from the “cloud”. Most important, UC ensures that information is available and people are reachable anytime, anywhere on almost any device of their choosing.
Over the past two decades, the conferencing and collaboration industry has introduced a series of enterprise communications offerings that address these challenges by enabling voice, video, and data collaboration at a distance – saving customers time and money, fostering team collaboration, and improving employee work-life balance. More recently, video conferencing and collaboration solutions have moved to the "cloud," giving customers cost effective, scalable, and more flexible purchasing options to meet their expanding communications needs.

Voice and data communications are taking up an increasing amount of organizations’ budgets as more information is shared between and across more businesses. Person to person contact now includes richer media, more participants and is becoming increasingly mobile. Historically, telecoms expense management has focused on the mechanistic processing of bills, payment and costs of individual items.

Rising demand for multimedia applications and mobile usage requires new paradigm to shift voice-oriented cellular architecture into data-oriented networks in order to serve bandwidth hungry packet based applications which include but not limited to multimedia gaming, mobiTV, streaming media, P2P, etc. Data oriented network requires 20-fold fatter air link and backhaul as compared to typical voice communication.
Enterprise networks are going through massive change, and the convergence of voice and data including Communication deployments, upgrades, transformations and ongoing management remain a top priority. According industry analysts at Aberdeen Group, 61% are planning for Communications in the next two years. In order to get the most from their Unified Communications investment at the time of deployment and beyond, enterprises must leverage both active testing and configuration analysis techniques to certify and validate that environments are configured as designed.
