4 Portico Telephone VoIP Adapter (TVA ) Overview A very large amount of money (estimated at $20.6 B over five years back in 2006 according to a Gartner Research report) wil be wasted on IP screen phones. Smart enterprises will migrate to IP telephony utilizing existing handsets and wiring infrastructure. Legacy handsets are retained until they reach the end of their effective life, and the enterprise avoids a questionable investment in rapidly evolving IP endpoints. Key Verticals Benefiting from Portico TVA Call Centers Finance and Professional Services Healthcare Higher Education Municipal and Government Retail Small to Medium Business (SMBs) Citel s SIP-based Portico Telephone VoIP Adapter (TVA ) enables digital, Centrex-compatible P phone and analog handsets to connect directly to a premise-based IP PBX or Hosted IP platform over existing wiring. The enterprise can apply up to two thirds of its existing telephony investment towards a new IP platform, dramatically reducing the expenditure and disruption usually associated with IP telephony migration. Now enterprises can justify migration to IP telephony even in the middle of the traditional PBX buy cycle.
