Verizon Enterprise Solutions has led a major project to upgrade two of U.S. Department of Defense (DoD)'s legacy communications systems to Unified Communications(UC).
With the completion of the upgrade, DoD can now seamlessly integrate voice, video, instant messaging, presence and conferencing into a single platform.
Using Ribbon Communication’s JITC-certified Application Server for the deployment, the department was able to replace the core of its communications infrastructure while leveraging its existing endpoints and using standards-based technology going forward. The cost and time required to integrate this option were significantly less than implementing an entirely new solution.
Because the modernization solution was integrated using existing platforms, the agency could continue to use its more than 60,000 phones, said Verizon.
