Re: Surprises?

Unified Comms anyone? No handsets just a headset attached to the computer via USB or Bluetooth for the execs.

What could possibly go wrong?

Maybe critical infrastructures should use a separate dedicated network for voice using non compatible with tcp / ip protocols to connect handsets to hardened gateways that can then connect to a providers phone network, but crucially using the same physical connections as the data network.

Maybe that's too radical an idea?
