Microsoft Lync Made Better

MX700 Telepresence

Made better with Cisco Collaboration Meetings Rooms (CMR for short) offering a standards based approach. Jabber supports Lync interoperability despite having to work with proprietary Microsoft protocols.

CMR can be deployed on premise, in the cloud, or as a hybrid mix of both.  It provides a business quality collaboration experience by combining video, audio and content sharing while juggling all the background normalization steps needed to ensure that meetings run seamlessly for all participants.

Microsoft Lync Interoperability with Cisco Telepresence

No question there is a lot of buzz around Microsoft Lync. Planned interoperability between Cisco TelePresence endpoints and Microsoft Lync is targeted for delivery in the first half of calendar year 2011. The solution will consist of the same components and work the same way that Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (VCS) and Cisco TelePresence Advanced Media Gateway work with Microsoft OCS 2007 R2 today. VCS will connect to the Lync server via a SIP trunk and enable CIF video interoperability in addition to the other capabilities provide by the integration such as presence, encryption, etc. The Advanced Media Gateway will bring the added benefit of HD (720p) or VGA resolution and enable the best visual experience possible between the two environments.

Below is a short video demo.
