VOSS Solutions today unveiled that the VOSS-4-UC management platform has been selected to perform a fundamental role in Italtel’s Collaboration at Work solution.
Collaboration at Work is a UC&C integrated architecture that allows organizations to achieve a unified and ergonomic user experience providing the best interoperability between multi-vendor communication technologies, by means of Italtel Session Border Control, NetMatch-S. The first release allows Cisco and Microsoft devices to coexist seamlessly, with Presence status and other UC settings automatically transferring across the different UC environments. Adopting Collaboration at Work, enterprises can benefit of faster business processes, increased individual and group productivity, enhanced employees’ mobility, and optimized use of video communications and multi-media conferences, together with significant savings in telecommunications expenses towards the operators (thanks to SIP trunking).
Italtel is the first partner in the world to harness the power of the VOSS-4-UC management platform to enable the cohabitation of Microsoft and Cisco telephony equipment in a single environment. Without VOSS, configuration would have to be carried out on the Cisco environment, the Microsoft environment and the Italtel Netmatch-S, for each and every user. With VOSS, this administrative complexity is absorbed and reduced to a few key strokes in the VOSS central management interface.
Stefan Peters, Sales Director at VOSS, commented: “Increasingly, companies are selecting multi-vendor UC environments to benefit from best-of-breed technologies and preserve legacy investments while moving away from vendor lock-in. We are delighted to be supporting Italtel, who is a frontrunner in Microsoft / Cisco cohabitation.”
Camillo Ascione, head of Italtel System Integration Strategy & Marketing added: “The VOSS-4-UC management platform abstracts a huge amount of complexity from the underlying administration; it simplifies and centralizes the day-to-day operations of the Collaboration at Work solution, making MACDs quick, easy and error-free”.
VOSS will be co-exhibiting with Italtel at Mobile World Congress, 2-5 March 2015, Barcelona, on Booth 2J2 (Pavilion 2).
