VBrick Systems Achieves Microsoft Silver Communications Competency
WALLINGFORD, Conn. --(Business Wire)--
VBrick Systems today announced that it has achieved Silver
Communications Competency certification in the Microsoft (News - Alert) (NASDAQ:MSFT)
Partner Network. Attaining this certification assures VBrick customers
that the organization is committed to exceeding the integration and
support requirements of Microsoft Unified Communications (News - Alert) & Collaboration
(UCC) solutions. VBrick is uniquely positioned to deliver video
streaming solutions into Microsoft UCC implementations.
To achieve Microsoft Silver Communications competency VBrick (News - Alert) had to
provide real world deployment examples as well as meet rigorous testing
requirements. This effort assures Lync customers that deployment of
VBrick's Lync streaming gateway will seamlessly enable their
organization to deliver live streaming video content to thousands or
tens of thousands of Lync clients. Those viewers will be able to watch
and collaborate, leveraging the full suite of Lync tools.
"We continue to heavily invest in our Microsoft relationship. Achieving
Silver Communications Competency is just one example, putting us in the
top 5 percent of all Microsoft partners worldwide. We have proven that
we have the expertise required to develop and deliver UCC solutions, and
we now have early access to the next generation of Microsoft innovation.
VBrick is in a strategic position to leverage this certification to
ensure our roducts take advantage of all future Microsoft UC services
and our customers are guaranteed that video will continue to be a core
UCC service within Microsoft environments," said John Shaw, chief
operating officer, VBrick.
VBrick and Microsoft - Video-enabled
Unified Communications and Collaboration
Customers deploying UCC solutions need video streaming to be a core part
of their business processes. Corporations, educational institutions,
healthcare facilities and government agencies are using Microsoft's OCS/
Lync with VBrick's enterprise IP video streaming solution to view,
collaborate and manage video for meeting and executive broadcasts, TV
distribution, and surveillance and security applications. Video can be
viewed directly from a Microsoft OCS/Lync client, resulting in a
highly-scalable solution that securely connects thousands of users
across the globe via their desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Likewise VBrick makes it easy to search and view for stored content by
integrating with SharePoint. Users can access video via their
traditional SharePoint accounts even as it is intelligently served from
the VBrick ecosystem, improving security, assuring device compatibility
and offering detailed reports on usage/access
