Why N3 Voice Services

 Exploit the NHS investment in the N3 network
 Set common standards
 Focuses on local needs
 Provides an integrated network to establish a
  national roadmap
 Enable NHS staff to work in new ways:
    Streamlining communications and
     encouraging collaboration
    In more places
    Enhancing efficiency
    Allowing organisational flex
N3 – Quality of Service (QOS)

 The QoS model has been designed to support real time
 communications such as telephone calls and video conferencing
  Concurrent voice calls over N3 catalogue

      The standard QoS model gives:

        Developing a converged network
        with the NHS for the NHS
   Is VoIP a realistic technology for the NHS?

 There are many existing examples of NHS organisations that have
 deployed converged/IP voice services locally.
