design)
• Mobile (wireless technology
will be maximized where
cost-effective)

Mobility
Contact Centre
• Consolidated services
• IP-based infrastructure
• Higher speed,
• Ubiquitous connectivity
Voice
• Modernize
• IP Telephony
1. As few wide area networks
as possible
2. All departments share
network access in multitenant buildings
3. Network equipment is
shared
4. Telecom hubs (call
managers, videoconference
(VC) bridges) located in
enterprise data centres or
common points of presence
5. Inter-data centre
connections should be
diverse and fully redundant
6. Scalable and flexible
infrastructure
7. Performance levels should
be similar wherever
possible
8. Contracts/services will be
consolidated
Data
• Increase security
• Consolidate zones
Video
• Rationalized VC bridges
• Shared VC boardrooms
Business Intent
• Business to Government
• Government to Government
• Citizens to Government

GC Converged Communications
End State
• Single Government of Canada (GC) network capable of carrying all
services with consistent functionality to all users
• Single simplified sign-on to all authorized converged communication
(CC) functionality based on a single GC directory and credential
• Single presence store for all GC users
• Single non-proprietary standards based
platform for all converged communications
services
8
GC Converged Communications
Enterprise Requirements
• Available anytime, on any device, from anywhere
• Device independent look and feel
• Intuitive, simple user-interface that is presence and directory enabled
• Secure up to a Secret level of sensitivity
• Supports government to government (G2G), government to business
(G2B) and government to public (G2P) multi-modal communications
9
Key Challenges
• Collaboration services not in scope
(i.e. not unified communications)
• Email and calendaring being implemented separately
–
May be challenging to integrate with the other services
• Pockets of Internet Protocol (IP) telephony and Unified
Communications-base already installed
–
Multiple departmental implementations
• Leveraging existing multi-vendor VC infrastructure
•
Interoperability limited between vendors
• Foundational services still in departmental silos
(e.g. active directories, identity credential access management, etc)
• Multi-network environment for the next few years

Recommendations
Consensus
Additional Engagement Required
Overall architectural approach is
sound
• Procurement approach for network and
converged communications services?
Three tier architectural
framework is accepted
• Framework used for three-tier model
needs further input?
Network should be decoupled
from converged communications
services from architectural and
procurement perspective
QoS on network will be important
to deliver voice and
videoconferencing services
• Network services deployment model
(e.g. national or regional)?
• Bundling model for converged
communications services?
• Best way to deliver QoS over multivendor networks?
• Bring Your Own Device approaches?
15
Possible Upcoming Topics (Core/Foundational Services)
•
Core/foundational services
–
Enterprise identity credential access management
(ICAM)
–
Directory services
–
Internet Protocol addressing (IPv4, IPv6)
–
DNS/DHCP
–
Network operations centre/security operations
centre
•
Distributed and workplace computing
environments (including devices)
•

•
Service catalogue
16
Next Steps
•
Government of Canada Network (wide area network) – industry
consultation (planned for early July 2013)
•
Converged communications/IP telephony industry engagement - in
Fall 2013 (date to be confirmed)
•
Next AFAC meetings – focused ICAM in July 2013

Deployment Model - Considerations
Cloud
Computing
•Similar to Hosted – however provided with cloud attributes elasticity, scale, on-demand
•Broader access for mobility (internal / external stakeholders)
•Integration of various providers in the cloud
•Aligned to single providers for all CC services
•Market maturity and security concerns
Hosted
Service
•
•
•
•
•
Less capital required
Higher monthly recurring charges
Reduced management costs
Evergreen costs reduced
Cross platform integration risk
Supplier
Managed
•
•
•
•
•
More capital costs to acquire products (s/w, h/w, tools)
Lower monthly recurring charges
Need to analyze balance of responsibilities and costs across GC and Supplier resources
Retain strategic functions (architecture, product suites..)
Build in platform ever greening to avoid spikes in budget
Custom
Solutions
•
•
•
•
•
Capital costs similar to above
Lower monthly recurring charges
Highest human resources and professional services costs
GC responsibilities greater in all aspects of service delivery and service support
Build in platform ever greening to avoid spikes in budget
