1. Assess your needs: Determine who within your organization demands real time communications across voice and IP systems.
2. Assess your infrastructure: Identify how your current telecom systems will need to evolve to support VoIP without pursuing a "rip-out and replace" strategy.
3. Draw up a blueprint: Use the assesment to design a flexible, reliable IP infrastructure that supports voice and data.
4. Ensure proper training: Determine who will handle training for the VoIP system, and how it will be offered.
5. Deploy and manage: Even after the network goes live, be sure you have a monitoring service in place to maximize ongoing performance.
