An Open Approach to Advanced Messaging

An open approach to IP telephony applications, running alongside your TDM and IP PBXs, has the power to change how your business communicates.

Reducing Total Cost of Ownership Through the Use of Blade Systems

The most obvious way organizations are using blades to transform their businesses is through consolidation. Companies are consolidating their rack-optimized servers into a blade server environment for greater efficiency and simplicity.

They also offer increased availability and manageability, making blade servers an attractive option for adopting scale out computing. Additionally, datacenter managers are increasingly adopting infrastructure virtualization to improve service levels, integrate and deploy applications faster, and respond quickly to changing business needs and market conditions.
