'AudioCodes One Voice for Microsoft Lync' Program Aims to Smooth Migration to Lync
By Rory Lidstone, TMCnet Contributing Writer
AudioCodes (News - Alert), a major provider of VoIP technologies, products and services, has today launched a new unified product and service program, "AudioCodes One Voice for Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync." This program aims to simplify and accelerate voice adoption in Lync setups by way of a complete portfolio of IP phones, media gateways, E-SBCs, survivable branch appliances and session experience managers, as well as network management tools, support and professional services.
In other words, the One Voice program enables smooth migration to Microsoft Lync, while enabling co-existence with other telephony systems in multisite deployments.
"We are seeing continued strong growth in sales of our products and service offering for the Microsoft Lync ecosystem over the past four years through close engagement with the large global community of Microsoft voice partners," said Shabtai Adlersberg, AudioCodes' CEO. "With our new 'AudioCodes One Voice for Microsoft Lync' initiative, we streamline Microsoft Lync voice project implementations by offering one source for voice products with one point of contact for all voice support issues, and one trusted partner for voice-related expertise and professional services."
Microsoft Lync is an enterprise-ready unified communications platform that enables instant messaging and the ability to place phone calls, as well as audio, video and Web conferencing. Available for Windows, Mac and mobile devices, Lync integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Office and can either enhance or replace an existing IP PBX (News - Alert) system.
AudioCodes kept fairly quiet as to the specifics of the One Voice for Microsoft Lync program in its announcement, but it's likely full details will be made available at the end of January at ITEXPO (News - Alert) East 2013. ITEXPO East 2013 will be held from January 30 to February 1 and will feature the Microsoft Lync Partner Solutions Pavilion in booth 516 on the exhibition floor.
The Microsoft Lync Partner Solutions Pavilion showcases the top product lineups offered by leading Lync-certified manufacturers. These products and solutions will be shown in action, while in-depth presentations and demos will provide ITEXPO attendees with a complete understanding of them.
