SIPCOM has extensive experience integrating conferencing solutions with Lync environments. Since there is clearly no "one size fits all" when it comes to enabling video conferencing services with a Microsoft Lync deployment, we choose from one of three integration methods depending on the specific requirements of the customer.
This combination allows an industry-standard endpoint to interoperate with a Lync endpoint. With direct endpoint integration, a third-party peripheral such as an IP telephone or an IP videoconferencing system will appear to the Lync Server 2010 as a standard Lync endpoint. From a user's perspective, the direct integration approach has several advantages. Generally, the user doesn’t have to do anything at all. To authenticate a device, a person simply uses his Lync user name and password. Perhaps more importantly, there is usually no additional cost for the endpoint hardware, although some vendors may charge if a software upgrade is required to integrate with Lync.
With SIPCOM’s voice platforms, we can integrate customers’ existing PBXs using either industry-standard session-border-controllers, or on-premise gateways. This enables us to support mixed environments in which end users can use a variety of software-based UC and traditional IP telephony and with a unified dial-plan, are able to search for and contact one another irrespective of the voice service they use.
