10 10 Copyright Acme Packet provided under NDA E-SBC ecosystem E-SBCs are always part of a larger IP communications initiative. Enterprises use Acme Packet E-SBCs in a wide variety of real-time IP communications network environments. A sampling of network equipment vendors and service providers that we have been deployed with is shown below:

11 Finding the right entry point picking the play Enterprises purchase E-SBCs for different purposes depending on their IP communications network maturity and technology investment profile. In all cases, the enterprises are looking for ways to leverage the feature enhancements and cost savings that IP communications network deliver. The following table provides a quick overview of how the different IP-communication applications (plays) E-SBCs enable, and some typical characteristics of enterprises that can benefits from these applications. More in depth descriptions of the applications follow, including: Application value propositions Qualifying questions and conversation starters Application specific E-SBC value propositions Answering objections Network diagrams Play IP telephony network consolidation SIP trunking Unified Communications Cloud communication services Secure remote workers Customer profile De-centralized telephony network Has made recent acquisitions Looking to rationalize their communication infrastructure Multiple PBXs Uses TDM communication services Looking to lower OPEX and CAPEX Uses TDM communications services Centralized communication network Looking to lower OPEX and CAPEX Centralized communication network Invests in worker productivity Green or work-life balance initiatives Favors an outsourcing strategy for traditional IT functions Heavy use of audio or video conferencing services (Intercall, Premier, WebEx,...) Outsources contact center functions and business processes Large geographically distributed organization Remote call center representatives Distributed workforce Green or work-life balance initiatives Looking to lower OPEX and CAPEX In many occasions an enterprise can benefit from a combination of these plays, and for clarity this document introduces each play independently. Copyright Acme Packet provided under NDA 11

12 12 Copyright Acme Packet provided under NDA Play: IP-telephony network consolidation Enterprises can reduce CAPEX and OPEX by leveraging their private IP-based data network for interactive communications, and by consolidating existing IP communication islands. They can retire legacy voice equipment, bypass the PSTN and use their private IP network for toll-free internal calls anywhere in the world. By connecting existing IP communication islands, they can lower support costs and enable unified enterprise-wide dial plans. Upon completion of the consolidation of IP telephony networks, the enterprise has a single IP communications network, instead of managing multiple dial plans, PBXs, and TDM-based telephony networks. Ask How does your company integrate new IP communications networks, for example from corporate acquisitions or organic growth? How do you manage local PRI trunk connections to branch offices? What is your strategy for managing and coordinating your company s PBX systems? What opportunities do you see to reduce network support costs or lower capital expenditures by consolidating your IP communication network infrastructure? What new demands from the enterprise might place a strain on your current communications network architecture? Say You can significantly reduce costs by consolidating your voice communications onto your existing IP data network and centralizing IP-PBXs into your data center. Acme Packet Net-Net E-SBCs can end the hassle of managing multiple move, add, change PBX dial plan updates.
