May I have the envelope please for the UC Product of the Year award winners?
Here’re three of my personal favorites:
Nortel’s Multimedia Conferencing (NMC): I use it everyday and in fact have my own virtualized bridge number (as does every other Nortel employee). I’ll even use the meet-me feature on two party calls- easier than chasing each other to connect! I really like the use of IM to convey a cheat sheet of chairperson commands and to track participant involvement. I couldn’t live without it!
Microsoft’s OCS 2007: It really is a neat product, especially when integrated with our business grade telephony solutions. BTW, NMC is also integrated with OCS- a first you can see at VoiceCon next week. IBM is investing $1B to strengthen its Sametime UC solution against OCS, also with our help.
FirstHand’s mobility solutions (now part of Counterpath, a Terry Matthews initiative): These folks have some interesting mobility technology. That's why they are one of our strategic partners.
Which are your favorites?
