Abstract: This work introduces a technological integration applied to the telecommunications equipments of the given case study at the University of Bergamo in Italy, where research is being developed on the existing technological instruments and on their costs. By creating the operational logistics for these instruments, it was compared with the latest technological products and changes were proposed with regard to the devices or in the way they are being used, in order to guarantee a significant cost reduction for the university. This work also introduces a model for the evaluation of more general cases for medium and large companies. Starting from market data an algorithm is proposed to evaluate the best product marketing and technological services to choose.
