The Migration From TDM to IP: Getting the Ball Rolling
Source: Level 3 Communications
Migrating from TDM to IP is a gradual evolution of the network. Due to age, wear and tear, enterprises will soon need to start replacing legacy equipment and networks. In addition, equipment vendors are beginning to phase out the support of certain TDM components. Companies must now determine whether to spend their limited budgets replacing components and maintaining their legacy networks, or implementing IP-based solutions. IP is not just about deploying a new network; it's about creating and implementing a telecommunications strategy that will carry the business well into the future. The right strategy can lay the foundation for scalability and growth, and help improve the bottom line by providing unprecedented flexibility, reduced costs, and increased efficiencies.
