But it’s made your life easier, it’s made a complicated task more simple, and it gathers information from that to understand the world.    (...) That’s how we should deal with health systems.  Make life easier for nurses, health workers, and others – let them order supplies more quickly, or tell us about new  and get a response  – and then we’ll get all the data we need.   (...) During the month I spent in Liberia not one time did I hear any Liberian technologist, government expert, or anyone else say that smartphones apps would make their life easier. It’s hard to prove a negative – but I also didn’t any see any proof of the positive.

. • The architecture selected for convergence must satisfy the business requirements before it meets the technical requirements • The architecture for collaboration must address the IT infrastructure, both what is already in place and what can be implemented in the future 3 DRIVERS FOR CONVERGENCE Many drivers but perhaps the most significant is a vision of the future • Lower Cost • Simplified Provisioning • Easier Management • Less Maintenance • Fewer User Interfaces DRIVERS FOR CONVERGENCE • More Rapid Provisioning • Improved Service • New Services • Simplification of user’s Life 4 DRIVERS FOR CONVERGENCE A brief review of each driver LOWER COST • If a new technology is to gain any recognition and market share, it must promise some savings- the more the better. DRIVERS FOR CONVERGENCE SIMPLIFIED PROVISIONING • Transport/Physical level - Allows a reduction in the number of cables to be laid • Switching level - Reduces the number of cable plants needed within a building • Application level - Only one medium e.g. the Internet is required to deliver content 5 DRIVERS FOR CONVERGENCE EASIER MANAGEMENT • Separate networks means that managers have to coordinate data from multiple sources to determine service quality • Combination of multiple systems and Networks simplifies management of telecommunications services DRIVERS FOR CONVERGENCE LESS MAINTENANCE • Reduction in the number of cable plants required means a reduction in the maintenance required • Easier upgrades as demand grows and as the need to provision new services arise 6 DRIVERS FOR CONVERGENCE FEWER USER INTERFACES • Use of a single cable plant with appropriate switching results into fewer separate user interfaces • Single type of of plug in the wall, which supplies raw bandwidth on demand • Reduction in costs for eqpmt manufacturers and savings passed on to consumers DRIVERS FOR CONVERGENCE MORE RAPID PROVISIONING • When existing cabling can carry new signals, provisioning is much faster • When existing cabling and switching can allow new services to be engineered and deployed without the need to add either cable or switching equipment, provisioning can be extremely fast 7 DRIVERS FOR CONVERGENCE IMPROVED SERVICE • Service quality improves when fewer components are involved in provisioning and maintenance DRIVERS FOR CONVERGENCE NEW SERVICES • Design, implementation and provisioning of new services is faster • Use of IP as the common switching technology allows new telephone services to be deployed easily in VoIP networks • As more switching intelligence resides in user eqpmt, need for fixed services reduces in favour of guarantees on packet delivery 8 DRIVERS FOR CONVERGENCE SIMPLIFICATION OF USER’S LIFE • New technologies are hard to sell unless users can perceive tangible benefits • Users do not respond to “Technological elegance”, but to concrete improvements and documentable savings. • Converged solutions have foundered in the past because telcom executives did not view things through from the user’s standpoint TYPES OF CONVERGENCE • TRANSPORT • SWITCHING • APPLICATION • TELECOMMUNICATION/IT 9 TYPES OF CONVERGENCE TYPES OF CONVERGENCE CONVERGENCE PYRAMID- Four levels: • :Network convergence(transport) - LAN, WAN, Wired and Wireless transmission • IT infrastructure-Servers,workstations, etc. • Applications - Web servers and other forms of Input/output devices • User Interface. Offer the end user access to converged applications 10 TYPES OF CONVERGENCE TRANSPORT • Same physical pipes and transport technology carry multiple services, usually of different customers • Convergence at this level is primarily used by carriers to provision their infrastructure • Used for local access as well as reducing the customer’s overall telecommunication bill TYPES OF CONVERGENCE SWITCHING • Same cable plant carries different types of traffic, and does appropriate switching • Distinction between services becomes less distinct or disappears entirely • Users see a bit pipe, and services are defined by end-user equipment 11 TYPES OF CONVERGENCE APPLICATION (Content) • The same end- user device or type of device and network handles and delivers all content • User does not have separate network interface devices TYPES OF CONVERGENCE TELECOMMUNICATIONS/IT • Blurring of the distinction between telecommunications and information processing (use of Applications service Providers and network computing) • Separate functions historically provided by different manufacturers are now available through one source. 12 NETWORK ARCHITECTURE FOR IT&COMMS • CENTRALIZED • HORIZONTAL • HIERARCHICAL NETWORK ARCHITECTURE FOR IT&COMMS CENTRALIZED ARCHITECTURE • Places all the applications,management and network connections in a single point • Worked well when networks and computers were expensive • Initially used by large organizations 13 NETWORK ARCHITECTURE CENTRALIZED NETWORK ARCHITECTURE FOR IT&COMMS HORIZONTAL ARCHITECTURE • More flexible: allows sites to be added easily • Loss of one site does not bring down the operation of other sites • Modular approach can produce a longer lasting solution 14 NETWORK ARCHITECTURE HORIZONTAL NETWORK ARCHITECTURE FOR IT&COMMS HIERARCHICAL ARCHITECTURE • Resembles an organizational chart • Large enterprises like banks and schools with off-campus facilities fit this model • The architecture design is flexible and can last a long time. 15 NETWORK ARCHITECTURE HIERARCHICAL NETWORK ARCHITECTURE TABLE: COMPARISON 16 NETWORK ARCHITECTURE FOR IT&COMMS The architecture choice should increase productivity with the following goals for the user interface: • Consistent - Dependable and performs the same for every use • Obvious- Similar to other experiences, limiting training expenses and reducing errors • Intuitive- Should be easy to learn IMPEDIMENTS TO CONVERGENCE • No technology is perfect!
