Cisco and Poly video conferencing systems
Microsoft Outlook, Exchange and O365 or Google Calendar
CONNECT includes two key components:
SIP to Teams interop and Management Suite
The SIP to Microsoft Teams video call interoperability is done by the CONNECT service in Azure which handles the real-time media.
The Management Suite is easily implemented on your own network with a VM image that can be hosted within 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 Government solution has a different setup.
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.
