By Rory Lidstone, TMCnet Contributing Writer
TMC recently announced that the Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync Solutions Pavilion on the ITEXPO West 2012 exhibit floor has added several companies to its lineup, featuring a slew of high-end Lync Certified products. The Pavilion will be featured in Booth 501 on the exhibit floor of the conference, to be held at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas, from October 2-5.
Microsoft Lync is a unified communication platform meant for enterprise use that allows users to see contact availability, send instant messages, participate in audio, video or Web conferences, and make phone calls. Available for Windows and Mac computers as well as mobile devices, Lync integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Office, as well as other tools and systems, enhancing or replacing any existing IP PBX (News - Alert) system.
The Microsoft Lync Solutions Pavilion will feature the top product lineups of many leading Lync Certified manufacturers, such as AudioCodes, IntelePeer, Interactive Intelligence, Plantronics, Polycom, prairieFyre, ScanSource (News - Alert) Comm and Microsoft itself. Products on display will all help corporations expand current unified communication solutions with the implementation of Lync.
“Microsoft Lync is establishing itself as the go-to Unified Communications (News - Alert) platform among enterprises of all sizes,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC’s CEO and conference chairman, in a statement. “We’re pleased to welcome the Microsoft Lync Pavilion exhibitors and provide ITEXPO (News - Alert) participants a one-stop location for their unified communications decision-making.”
Other confirmed participants of ITEXPO West 2012 include Vera Networks and Equinox Information Systems. Vera is planning to feature its flagship cloud-based SIP call flow diagnostics solution, vCapture, at the event's exhibition at Booth 309. The company will showcase vCapture's ability to sample an operator's SIP signaling stream in near real time, which can be stored for later review.
Equinox, meanwhile, is planning to feature its Business Assurance Solutions at the exhibition in Booth 526, demonstrating its ability to detect telecommunications fraud, validate usage revenue and expense, mediate and analyze usage data, and perform least cost routing and network management functions.
