Vendors have positioned with service provider products that support the ability to work with the enterprise customer.  Enterprise networks are being reconfigured, helping the enterprise realize the full benefits of IP.  The ability to have access to communications continuity from home, while traveling, and at the office is a significant business benefit and will lead to greater opportunities for profit and growth. 

Future vendor network engineering access support means that the enterprise can leverage current local area networks (LANs).  Improvements, in the routing and prioritization of existing LAN, are used to deliver high-quality voice over IP (VoIP).  This includes setting traffic priorities, determining bandwidth requirements, and using the software to manage system performance.  This is the future of carrier profitability; do not get left behind.
