Unified Communications Federation: Why and How?


Attend our webinar on “Unified Communications Federation: Why and How?” to discover how federation will enable UC platforms from multiple vendors to communicate with one another. Register for our session, on May 29, 2012 at 10:00 am London / 2:30pm India/ 6:00pm Japan Time.

Unified Communications aims to integrate different islands of communication like voice, messaging, email, and video spread across enterprises that own different UC platforms, into a system that has presence and identity and makes users available anytime, anywhere in accordance with enterprise policies. For an enterprise, UC delivers substantial financial and operational advantages by providing seamless collaboration across employees, customers, and vendors who use multiple modes of communication.

As enterprises deploy unified communications applications for services such as voice, video, presence, instant messaging, conferencing, calendaring, directory, identity, and address book, the enablement of real-time collaboration across enterprises and domains demands solutions that are high-performance, interoperable, policy-regulated, and secure.

Inter-domain Federation is secure, policy-regulated collaboration between multiple enterprises or public domains that enables the exchange of messaging and presence information between users. Federation is achieved by mediating between services or across a large number of proprietary or standards-based protocols.

The federation of presence along with instant messaging, data, voice, and video between two enterprises can eliminate a multi-day information exchange and transform an impending crisis into a problem solved. As the unified communication market matures, federation will become critical to maintaining seamless communication across enterprises. A federated environment delivers a simplified architecture that can enable users to overcome many of the inherent drawbacks and challenges to day-to-day communication. Enterprises are looking for the simplest and clearest UC integration strategies.

We are hosting a webinar to talk specifically about UC Federation which allows enterprises to federate their disparate UC platforms with other enterprises to create a new collaborative environment.  Federation helps enterprises create collaborative environments that improve productivity and accelerate decision making.  Federation delivers a framework that gives rise to a “world without boundaries” where enterprises and users interact with multiple vendors across networks and platforms.
