UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS ATBOEING CASE STUDYPrashanth Kumar KammariInstructor: – : Dr. Rick Livingood UNIFIEDCOMMUNICATIONS AT BOEINGIntroductionabout Boeing:-Boeing which wasestablished in 1916 by manufacturing small aircrafts to large airplane hasoccupied among world’s largest aerospace companies list standing in secondlargest defense contractor. The companymain moto is to manufactures, airplanes and selling rotorcraft, rockets andsatellites.
Boeing which is the largest military aircraft in United States ofAmerica locating it’s headquarter in Chicago, IL. Discussionpoint:-From my research Boeingbeing a public aerospace industry with the production of 778 commercialaircraft by 2016 and more than 190 military aircraft (2016), as focusing onmilitary aircraft which is a good decision taken by team to reduce terrorattacks but the information should not be public such as the providing thebrief organizational strategies in the company’s website may create a problemof data hacking. They introduce Microsoft’s Lync Server which helps theemployees for desktop sharing, online communications which may cause a securityattack so implementing UC system may bring key changes related with Boeing UCsystem has been the limit of agents to use the same softphone headset which canaccess both office and personal calls. Phone capacities take after theversatile worker who can show which device to course calls to on the fly. TheirBoeing phone number is reliably the same whether they are in their office, athome, or managing the contrary side of the world. Complete information aboutassociates is given through Lync’s zone and development support limits. Boeing’s assembled IPnetwork and UC engage staff to share information and data more quickly andsufficiently, including their location.
Boeing’s geographically scatteredarchitects use these systems to confer fitness to each other likewise as theycould in case they were in a comparative place meanwhile. The ability to helpunited exchanges capacities over the unified IP sort out energizes getting thehang of sharing and has transformed into a fundamental part of Boeing’s jointexertion and data organization strategies. Virtual group advantage from havingthe ability to alter their coordinated efforts to the Boeing can use unifiedcommunication to secure their data being share by the third party. Below arefew of the points if am the CIO at Boeing.Ø Passwords- Apply Strong Initiation Protocol (SIP) passwords to secure VoIP telephonesand other UC endpoints. Usage of strong passwords for framework segments, aswell as for clients. Reset passwords regularly, and never use the one’s usedpassword again. Ø Streamline- Improve security and execution by trashing unused highlights oradministrations.
Ø InternetProtocol Security (IPsec) is a strong securing Internet Protocol (IP)transmission of data is encrypted for every IP packet of a correspondencesession. IPsec is a conclusion to-end security conspire working in the InternetLayer of the Internet Protocol Suite. Beginning with the definition andunderstanding the idea of End-to-End securityØ AVPN confirms the source what’s more, secures message honesty and privacy. Ø LAN(Local Area Network) where Staff who access local network in the work place toshare file through internet are printers might be a possibility to share thedata which is related to military aircraft so stuff should avoid the usage ofphones and any smart devices when working in the area. Conclusion:-Fromthe research I can say that by integrating UC can bring great mobility amongthe employees and introduce new communication tools which protects the datafrom mislead hands and also accessing the companies data would be moreconfidential especially to the company dealing with military aircrafts.
