Unified Communications Trends
Unified Communications, or UCC, has finally gained momentum and got the industry acceptance that it has been looking for all these years. The universal platform that integrates everything from an email to videoconferencing is here to stay because customers can’t get enough of this latest technology. The fact is that UC has been in the market for quite a long time and it really deserves the limelight. Here are some of the latest Unified Communications trends that is ruling the telecommunication world like never before:
This has been long due and customers have been waiting for long to find a UC system that incorporates even the video feature. It is quite a wise decision to use Netflix, Skype or Youtube in the offices because they have not only been successfully tested but are also preferred over travels. Companies are cutting down their travel budget, which has indirectly helped the UC bandwagon to be pushed further.
Mobility broke into the UC scene as IT managers found it really difficult to coordinate with their AV counterparts. The companies are fast adopting BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and CYOD (Choose Your Own Device) that are bound to change everything that we perceived about UC and mobility. The users are now able to work on a variety of devices, which either belong to them or they choose from a range of mobile devices offered by their organizations. Employees are able to work with their smartphones or tablets and that too while staying connected to their UC platform.
Google gave away the source code for the development of WebRTC in the year 2011 and by the start of 2013 we were flooded with various WebRTC applications. This technology allows the users to carry out video conferencing over the internet by using their browsers. Neither do you require any application nor do you need any kind of a dedicated hardware. It is one feature that can directly use the UC resources and make video conferencing look like a walk in the park.
Cloud Computing and Cloud Communication
Hosting UC on the cloud can make things extremely easy for the users as they are able to avail all the latest features of UC without having to worry about any hardware or software infrastructure. All that a user will need to do is have an internet connection and they are set to avail all the latest features being offered by UC.
Pro AV is being adopted by the organizations along with their UC package because it offers high-definition video delivered around the world. With the growth in the UC systems, Pro AV will be integrated and offered in an integrated manner while being accessed from the cloud.
