Unified Communications: Greater Productivity, Lower Costs
MobileUC means bringing unified communications applications to mobile workers with the same quality and reliability as we have at the desks in our offices. In this podcast, Luc Roy, vice president with Siemens Enterprise Communications, discusses the impacts and challenges involved with keeping productivity high, costs low, and workers connected. At Siemens, Roy works to address the increased demands for faster response times, lower energy demands and power consumption, and the serious challenge of maintaining secure computing environments.
UC applications — from instant messaging to voicemail and presence — pose particular challenges to the enterprise, as mobility and remote access increasingly become a fact of life for the knowledge workforce. Siemens’s offerings in this area include HiPath Wireless, to support the all-wireless enterprise; HiPath MobileConnect, to extend secure FMC support for remote workers; and OpenScape Mobile UC Client, for RIM, Symbian and Windows Mobile 5/6. All offerings run on the OS UC server, launched earlier this year.
