The correct answers
Support of voice and video both using the same switch (option A)
Affordability for small and medium businesses (option D)

Network convergence also known as media convergence refers to the efficient coexistence of telephone, video and data communication within a single network. In simple terms, this means one company provides services for all forms of communication.

Example instead of carrying a telephone, a camera and a digital organiser, all this technologies converge on a single device – such as smartphones. This is a lot more cost effective than getting these separate devices.

Refer to curriculum topic: 1.1.1 Converged networks have traditional user traffic as well as digitized voice and video traffic that once required separate networks. Now, instead of separate groups managing separate networks, one group of personnel can manage the network.
