What is Unified Communications and Collaboration?
Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) is a set of technologies enabling the integration of real-time and non-real time communications across an organization, such as voice, audio, video, chat/instant messaging, email, text/SMS, fax, calendars, sharing across desktops and interactive whiteboards and more.
The integration features a consistent user interface and experience, regardless of the device and media type.
Imagine you receive a phone call. Being connected to your UCC solution, you choose to accept the call via your desktop or mobile, or send it to voicemail. You decide to send it to voicemail, and choose to retrieve it via your email. That’s just some of the power of UCC.
How does UCC work?
UCC solutions include both software and hardware/equipment components.
Software like Microsoft Teams and Google Workspace allow your team to meet, chat, call and collaborate from anywhere and across different devices.
Most software is designed to work with most existing devices, however some manufactures like Yealink offer sets of hardware specially-designed to maximize certain software’s capabilities.
For example, Yealink’s Microsoft Teams audio and video products cover everything from a small huddle to extra-large meetings. Their offering includes:
Desk phones with integrated video
Room “bars” that integrate video cameras, microphones and speakers
Wired and wireless room sets with a mini PC, touch console and sharing device, cameras, microphones and speakers
Smart whiteboards and desktop collaboration displays
