Azaleos Corporation recently announced that it has enhanced its UCaaS offering with capabilities that will make it easy for users to use the Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync unified communications (UC) platform to quickly deploy voice services.
In a statement, Scott Gode, vice president of marketing and product management for Azaleos, said that, “Azaleos was the first Microsoft partner to support Lync 2013 and is capable of providing complete migration, deployment and managed Lync services. The Skype integration built into Lync 2013 coupled with our support for industry leading hardware from Audiocodes, Jabra and Plantronics (News - Alert) provides customers with the most complete and flexible Unified Communications as a Service offering on the market.”
The company also announced that it has been recognized as one of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and clean technology companies in North America, which earned it the number one spot in the Washington State on Deloitte’s (News - Alert) Technology Fast 500 list.
The Lync 2013 enhanced Azaleos UC services supports easy implementation of Lync enterprise voice and unified communications by users who will no longer need to recruit and or retain Lync experts, when using hardware providers of their choice.
Azaleos private cloud Managed Lync Services has been enhanced with additions which include - full Skype (News - Alert) integration and federation with Lync; complete interconnectivity and full monitoring and management for Audiocodes; robust support for Jabra and Plantronics devices; enhanced level of disaster recovery and high availability capabilities for Lync.
Other enhancements include new Lync Enterprise Voice and Video capabilities, which include support for a number of trunks between mediation servers and gateways; inter-trunk routing, which will allow the Lync Server to provide support for multiple phone systems while also allowing easy management of simultaneous ring and caller ID presentation; Video Gallery view ,which can easily support up to five simultaneous video streams, and HD video conferencing.
With a Hybrid Architecture, Azaleos’ UCaaS offering will deliver both deployment and management support for integration between Office 365 environments and on-premise and private cloud Lync. The Archiving integration, on the other hand, will make it easy for Lync to run with the Legal Hold feature in Exchange to ensure greater compliance and addressing of e-discovery requirements. The newly improved UCaaS offering will also provide support for enhanced collaboration on smartphones and tablets.
