project introduction
Project Introduction
  • Traditional telephone systems use analog technology to transmit voice signals around the globe.
  • Traditional telephone system costs can be very high for long distance communication, especially for international corporations with facilities located through the world.
project objectives
Project Objectives
  • The objective of this project is to successfully implement VoIP technology at an international company with facilities in Chicago, Illinois and San Pedro Sula, Honduras
project goals
Project Goals
  • The following goals support successful completion of the objective:
    • Definition of VoIP, ensuring it will meet the project needs
    • Definition of the company’s needs, ensuring they can be met by the proposed solution
    • Definition of the environment, ensuring it will support the VoIP solution
    • Definition of critical success factors, ensuring that success can be measured
project methodology
Project Methodology
  • Two member subgroups were formed to research technical and cultural aspects of project
  • Research data were gathered and processed using The Industrial Technologist’s Toolkit for Technology Management (Dr. John Sinn, 2004).
  • Synchronous and asynchronous online collaboration tools were used to shape and define the project.
  • Additional input from Dr. john Sinn was integrated as needed.

project process reflections
Project Process Reflections
  • Significant improvement occurred in the threaded postings, tool documentation devices, and research toward the technical project. Compilation dates have been moved up to facilitate quality into the Phase Portfolio.
  • The project is moving along well, but there are issues. For example, I don't believe we have determined exactly which vendor will be our supplier. While these forms are great and collecting lots of random information, they don't seem to be as well suited for bringing consensus in the group…
project process reflections1
Project Process Reflections
  • Quality of work is improving by each team member. Threads are improving and the technical project is progressing nicely.
  • Team members need to become more proficient and timely in the posting of this and other tool documents.
project process reflections2
Project Process Reflections
  • The research our team is performing is continually becoming more focused and complete as we move toward our end project. At this point I think we have more than enough information to accurately understand the technical aspects of VoIP technology. However, the cultural aspects are still somewhat vague due to the lack of research our team has been able to collect in this area.
project process reflections3
Project Process Reflections
  • The quality of work looks satisfactory but the content may need to be directed more toward the cultural aspects of implementing a VoIP communication system in Honduras and Chicago.
  • However, the cultural impact of implementing VoIP may be minimal due to the close similarities between the operation of VoIP phones and traditional telephones.
project findings
Project Findings
  • After some question as to the actual components required to implement VoIP including the costs involved, feasibility, cost effectiveness, and quality issues, the tool forms defined and addressed the project objectives.
  • The most difficult aspect to address with the technical project, cultural influences upon our technology transfer, although not fully developed, emerged in the Phase Portfolio.
project findings1
Project Findings
  • In-house development of VoIP system cost anticipated to be have initial cost greater than $6000 as a result of technical resources requirements. Ongoing costs will also be incurred.
  • Outsourcing VoIP service to major supplier (such as Vonage, Net2Phone) reduces cost to $400 initial, with $20 per month ongoing.
project findings2
Project Findings
  • Outsourced system technology was tested during synchronous meeting of 11/29/04. Contact was established between Jim McKirahan (Team Leader) in the U.S., and Robert Morrison in Honduras.
project conclusion
Project Conclusion
  • VoIP is real and ready for use.
  • Outsourced solutions can be very cost effective.
  • Network capabilities are a fundamental consideration
