Network congestion has compelled organizations to deploy traffic shaping and Quality of Service (QoS) appliances just before the WAN router to control outbound traffic. But in today’s complex environments, organizations are rethinking how to manage the onslaught of data flowing across the network, and the focus of congestion control has increasingly shifted to traffic flowing inbound from the many data sources.

It wasn’t so long ago that we were in awe of telepresence — its ability to bend space and time to put people who are thousands of miles apart face-to-face instantaneously. Now that we’ve experienced the power of telepresence, we want more. We want telepresence all the time. We want it to be available and effortless to use like a mobile phone. In effect, we want telepresence to be taken to the next dimension, one that allows for high-intensity collaboration.

It’s almost time for us to unveil our predictions for 2013 but before we look forward, today we’ll look back to see how we did when we made predictions for 2012 — projecting trends for telepresence, wireless substitution, cloud-based unified communications, BYOD and net neutrality.

Catching up with many of the other unified communications vendors, Avaya today announced that its Aura platform now can be virtualized.
