One of the most promising benefits of voice over IP (VOIP) for enterprises is the ability to centralize the call control servers, which should allow the IT department to consolidate resources--both human and infrastructure. Instead of deploying and maintaining a PBX and/or key system at every single location--as was generally required in the TDM world--one can deliver VOIP call control remotely to smaller sites. This has inspired several VOIP vendors that started out pushing IP Centrex--for example, BroadSoft and Sylantro, to expand their focus to include the enterprise. The idea is that many large enterprises are, effectively, service providers, and IP technology offers them a more economical way to provide carrier-grade solutions. Now one of the traditional PBX vendors has added this approach to its own product line, with Siemens AG's announcement of its new HiPath 8000 product. That marks a significant evolution in VOIP deployment. The hiG 1100 of the HiPath survivable media gateway, is the gateway that will run at remote sites and link to the 8000 server.
