Converged Systems

The conceptual idea behind a Converged System or Convergence, is that one network transports all information and services (voice, data, and all sorts of media such as video) by encapsulating these into packets, like it is on the Internet. Converged Systems are commonly built around the Internet Protocol, and therefore the term "all-IP" is also sometimes used to describe the transformation toward Converged Systems. These systems need to have the agility to grow and shrink with your business needs. The foundation of these Converged systems start with a good infrastructure. The wiring such as CAT6 needs to be put in place, then a managed switch to handle the connectivity for network demands such as voice, video, and data. For the idea of 'When I plug in a device, it should just work" businesses should seek best in breed products. Computel has hands-on experience with the multiple products your business may find.
