Siemens Enterprise Communications introduced OpenScape Desktop Videoconferencing as part of the updated OpenScape UC Suite including new security and management updates making it more affordable to deploy videoconferencing to every desktop.
OpenScape Desktop Videoconferencing is a software based, multi-party enterprise capability within the new version of OpenScape UC Suite. OpenScape’s open, software-based architecture dramatically lowers the total cost of ownership of UCC solutions and provides flexible options for on-premise, hybrid and cloud deployments.
The suite requires no proprietary hardware servers, appliances or other specialized devices or endpoints to enable enterprise-grade visual collaboration from every desktop. It includes multi-party conference views, support for AudioPresence and standards-based interoperability with LifeSize, Polycom, Radvision and Cisco endpoints
“By delivering OpenScape Desktop Videoconferencing as an integrated capability of the OpenScape UC Server, it’s now easier and more affordable for organizations to deploy video-enabled UC across the enterprise and manage it in a centralized, cost-effective manner,” said Chris Hummel, CMO and President, North America, Siemens Enterprise Communications. “Additionally, the security, management and deployment option updates we’ve added to OpenScape UC Suite ensure that we continue to deliver the most complete UC solution to address our customers’ business needs.”
