Synergy SKY will soon extend its unique, award-winning SIP to web gateway to support all Zoom and Google meetings, in addition to all Microsoft Teams meetings, making it the most flexible and feature-rich interoperability gateway in the market.
With this, the Synergy SKY CONNECT solution will allow you to have back-to-back meetings across all 3 platforms from your SIP videoconferencing device, using the same workflow. It will enable you to schedule and manage calls in Outlook or Google without any plugins, while keeping the same device in the meeting rooms.
WHAT DOES IT DO TODAY?
The CONNECT interoperability gateway is one of the most versatile solutions; the support for the new web platforms (Google and Zoom) is an addition.
Connect ANY Cisco / Poly videoconference room system to ALL internal / external Microsoft Teams meetings
Maintain user experience consistency with Native Microsoft Teams layouts and features while also preserving powerful Cisco device features.
From the Teams client, you can do screen or application sharing (PowerPoint Live and Whiteboarding). From Cisco / Poly devices, you can share presentations via cable or wireless sharing options like Miracast, etc.
Get ad-hoc meeting booking (Webex and Teams) and Microsoft Teams Meeting Controls on Cisco devices: Participants Lists, RaiseHand, Lower Hand, Pin Participants, Gallery View, Fit to Frame, Large Gallery View.
All existing users will get the new Google and Zoom interop without adding a new license.
CONNECT includes two key components:
SIP to web gateway and Management Suite
The SIP to web call interoperability is done by the CONNECT service in Azure which handles the real-time media (this is also how Google and Zoom will be added as seen in the diagram below).
The Management Suite is easily implemented on your own network with a VM image that can be hosted in most virtualized environments. This way, all CDR and booking data remain safe within your premises. This “dual implementation” ensures data privacy while providing the scale and flexibility of a cloud service. Please note that the Synergy SKY CONNECT for Government solution has a different setup, but will also support Google and Zoom meetings.
It’s as easy as in-person meetings for users. They can continue using Outlook or Google calendar for all meeting scheduling, forwarding, editing, and cancellation. No training, new tools, or workflows need to be introduced.
