Converged Systems & IP Networks

Just as the term implies, “converged systems” integrate multiple technologies – including information technology and communications – in a single, optimized solution. True convergence is IP-based, and joins various elements including voice and data, data and video, email and voice mail, as well as end-to-end communication services at the transport layer.

Regardless of which unified computing and communications combination you require, TWD has the expertise and specialized skill set to design, engineer, integrate, install, and maintain a customized converged IP network that integrates the technologies you need to support your business.

Converged systems maximize the utilization of your existing infrastructure and minimize your operational and lifecycle costs through equipment and resource consolidation, as well as through technical and business process efficiencies.

Our dedicated and experienced TWD team designs and implements secure converged IP networks for both unclassified and classified applications. We guide you in the strategic planning and development – examining your business objectives as well as your existing computing environment – ensuring that your solution:

  • is designed around your specific business needs and uses
