Huawei announced the successful completion of a Interoperability Test (IOT) between Huawei’s IP private branch exchange and Microsoft Lync. Huawei has taken this opportunity to further strengthen cooperation between both parties, thereby boosting the efficiency of communications and seamless collaboration of enterprises.
Huawei is a leading systems provider in the Unified Communications (UC) domain and provides an extensive range of solutions to global customers. During the IOT, the Huawei eSpace U1930 gateway was used as the IP-PBX to interconnect with Microsoft Lync Server 2010. The successful IOT confirms that this device delivers a wider range of UC services to users, facilitates the access of Lync to the public switched telephone network (PSTN), and is compatible with the existing telephone system, thereby reducing the need for additional investment by customers. In addition, enterprise users can also use Huawei’s IP-PBX to join Lync conferences, which facilitates communication and exchange to significantly improve work efficiency.
Yi Zhiquan, general manager of Huawei’s UC products, said: “The successful interconnection between Huawei’s IP-PBX and Microsoft Lync showcases the excellent features of Huawei’s UC products on convergence and openness, and further enhances the joint competitiveness of Huawei and Lync. Such interoperability applications will enrich the service offerings for UC customers and deliver better service experience to customers.”
Going forward, both Huawei and Microsoft aim to strengthen the cooperation in UC, Contact Centre (CC), TelePresence (TP) and VC (Video Conference), and to showcase the joint solutions of Huawei and Microsoft at the Microsoft Technology Centre (MTC). Huawei looks forward to partnering on more joint innovation projects with Microsoft technology to help customers in the global enterprise market.
