The Evolution of Unified Communications

Posted by Phil Bowers, Senior Marketing Manager on Sep 27, 2019

There is no ‘official’ definition for the term Unified Communications (UC), but most you find will focus on the integration of voice, video, data and mobility into a centralized communication network. While UC still revolves around the integration of these four platforms, the technology that makes up each of those areas, and how we use them, has evolved quite a bit.  In the same way that the term “Web 2.0” was coined to differentiate the newer generation of internet technology, maybe it is time to usher in "UC 2.0".  UC is no longer just traditional VoIP systems combined with SIP or H.323 video conferencing room systems – it is smart devices, mobile apps, collaboration tools and specialized data management platforms. This blog will highlight the current landscape of UC solutions to show what has changed and preview what may be the next major advancements in the UC ecosystem.

Why Your Video Conferencing Solution Should be Mobile-Friendly

Posted by Phil Bowers, Senior Marketing Manager on Sep 5, 2018

en español

If you are looking to build or expand a video conferencing solution, it’s imperative that the platform you build is able to support mobility. This not only offers the utmost flexibility to support an increasingly mobile and remote workforce, but it also creates a future-proof investment that will easily support the next generation of video collaboration solutions.

Workforce mobility is no longer a trend or a vision-of-the-future, it’s a central tenant of modern business. It allows businesses to access and utilize the best talent anywhere in the world and to do so in a way that is convenient for both the employee and the company while actually saving money. Because of this, workforce mobility is not only great for large businesses but allows small-to-medium sized businesses to expand their resources to compete with anyone.  Industry experts are predicting that 50-75% of the global workforce will be remote within a decade, which shows that employers are adopting this idea and job-seekers will soon expect remote working options.

One-on-One: Previewing the WP820 with Mike Magers

Posted by Phil Bowers, Senior Marketing Manager on Aug 1, 2018

We are getting close to the official release of our first cordless WiFi IP Phone, the WP820 (for those who have has been following the development of this model and seen it called the WP800, we decided to rename it the WP820). The feedback we have gotten from Beta testers, channel partners service providers, major platform providers and potential end-users points to this product instantly becoming one of our best-selling models. Our Beta Club had more applicants to test this product than any product we have ever put through a beta test. Also, as you may have seen me talking about recently in a blog and on a Telecom Reseller Podcast, WiFi voice is poised to become a mainstream deployment model because of its cost, management and environmental benefits.

To get some feedback on our upcoming WP820, I recently sat down with Mike Magers a prominent Grandstream Reseller and Systems Engineer with VoiceConnex, a technology integrator in Missouri, USA. Not only does Mike bring years of experience within the telecom and security industry, but he is a Beta tester of the WP820.

The topic even came up in a Podcast I did a few weeks ago with Telecom Reseller. Whatever you may think about WiFi voice, it is poised to take over the market sooner than later.
