Tech/Engineering - Telecom(munications) / IP telephony
French term or phrase: La téléphonie sur IP retenue
I'm wondering if 'retenu' is new terminology within the field of IP telephony? It appears in a text about installing a new IP telephony infrastructure. I don't have any context, it's rather a standalone sentence. It isn't followed by 'par' so it doesn't mean anything like adopted by the company or retained by. It is adjectival.
Thanks in advance to any translators stuck working on a Saturday like me ;-)

English translation:IP telephony chosen
Explanation:
Unless, of course, the following paragraph goes on to describe *the chosen IP telephony solution*, in which case the better word order would be as just given.

Give some thought to whether you even want to use the word "telephony" in English.
