    SIP – Give yourself a global voice by making communication simple

    10am

    Webinar


    Let IDC and BT unlock the secrets to achieve truly successful SIP – (Session Initiation Protocol) enabled global communications.

    Businesses are rising to the challenge of market globalisation by becoming stateless – selling streamlined products and services to an increasingly integrated global economy.

    How do businesses with a global footprint simplify and optimise communications? Enterprise voice – enabled by SIP – remains a critical business service, as well as a vital stepping-stone to improving employee collaboration and creating efficient operations.

    To connect people across your organisation (regardless of region), you need to make the most of SIP. And ‘getting it right’ is essential to your organisation’s efforts to be more competitive, control costs and bring a distributed international workforce together.

    It all starts with your network. Consolidating SIP enterprise voice services with your IP data network gives you the opportunity to standardise your communications and provide connectivity that’s resilient, flexible and easier to scale to achieve the following objectives:

    – Reducing the complexity and cost of global communication
    – Extending your global reach to new markets
    – Increasing the productivity of your workforce through unified communications and collaboration

    In our webinar we’ll show you how to:
    – Use Global SIP to create a future-proof network that gives you greater control over services and
    – Reduces your costs
    – Make the most of SIP by consolidating voice across multiple sites on a global WAN
    – Avoid the common mistakes organisations make when rolling out SIP trunks globally

    Jason Andersson, Network Analyst, IDC Enterprise.
    Jason will help you understand how a global application of enterprise SIP can help you on your digital transformation journey – as well as how up-to-date voice services will benefit your business. He’ll tackle some of the infrastructure issues many IT departments struggle with, while showing you how to create the ideal strategy for SIP trunk adoption.

    Jan Riechers, BT General Manager, Global Voice Services.
    As BT’s global expert in SIP and WAN technologies, Jan will take you through BT’s network experience, international footprint and end-to-end range of services.

    Customer Case Studies
    We’ll show you how two global organisations have delivered significant cost savings and better quality service – all by bringing their worldwide communications onto a common platform. You’ll see how our customers got their networks ready for unified communications and collaboration, and how they’ve improved communications by working with a one-stop global provider with decades of experience.

    Reality and illusion in EU data transfer regulation post-Schrems

    1-2.30pm

    Trinity Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin


    In Schrems v. Data Protection Commissioner, the Court of Justice of the European Union invalidated the EU-US Safe Harbour arrangement allowing personal data to be transferred to the US. The judgment is a landmark in the Court’s data protection case law, and illustrates the tension between the high level of legal protection for data transfers in EU law and the illusion of protection in practice.

    The judgment has undermined the logical consistency of the other legal bases for data transfer besides the Safe Harbour, and reactions to it have largely been based on formalism or data localisation measures that are unlikely to provide real protection.

    Schrems also illustrates how many legal disagreements concerning data transfers are essentially political arguments in disguise. The EU and the US have since agreed on a replacement for the Safe Harbour (the EU-US Privacy Shield), the validity of which will likely be tested in the Court. It is crucial for data transfer regulation to go beyond formalistic measures and legal fictions, in order to move regulation of data transfers in EU law from illusion to reality.
