Our Unified Communication Engineers act as an extension of the Microsoft technical team.Government organizations at all levels rely on robust communications systems to operate effectively. The Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 is making communications systems even more critical as employees begin to work at alternate work sites. In your day-to-day communications—and especially in crisis situations—you need a single, unified communications platform that smoothly meshes all of your communications functions.
Chances are good that your agency or department is already using Microsoft Office and Microsoft Exchange Server. You may have even taken steps to incorporate internal and external communications with Microsoft unified communications technologies. But are you realizing the full value of your existing infrastructure investments and how they can help your agency meet new technology requirements?
By breaking down old barriers separating telecom, Internet, intranet, and mobile communications, Microsoft Lync 2013 (formerly known as Office Communications Server) enables you to leverage your current technology and can help your agency benefit from cost savings and improved productivity, collaboration, and protected and straightforward telework scenarios.
Microsoft unified communications solutions can help provide:
A connected end-user experience. Microsoft Lync provides a single interface that unites rich presence, enterprise telephony, instant messaging (IM), and audio, video, and web conferencing in a unified environment.
Enhanced agility and mobility. A single experience across the PC, phone, or web means that users have the choice to connect from many devices. Microsoft Lync also offers an integrated mobility model that allows users to connect from remote locations just as they would in the office—all while maintaining network protection, stability, and emergency services.
Reduced total cost of ownership (TCO). With one communications platform, you can significantly simplify deployment, operations, and interoperability with added features that improve provisioning, load-balancing, fail-over, and server draining. You can also embed Microsoft Lync user interface (UI) elements in your applications, build your own client experience in .NET with open and documented APIs, and enhance contextual collaboration by launching applications right from Microsoft Lync. Moreover, Microsoft Lync can be deployed agency-wide, or within individual departments, depending on your needs.
Improved enterprise telephony. Microsoft Lync 2013 can replace or enhance your existing Internet protocol private branch exchange (IP PBX) system. In addition to traditional calling features, you can also take advantage of call queuing and routing, coverage, and enhanced 911 capabilities. With Microsoft Lync, you can leverage your existing PBX/IP PBX investment by moving users in a phased approach and retire your existing investment when you are ready.
Unified communications and JITC. The Microsoft unified communications platform is now on the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) Approved Product List at the PBX2 classification (JITC certification). This means that DoD customers can start replacing single-function PBX voice systems with a JITC certified comprehensive solution combining PBX voice, video, web conferencing, IM, and presence from within just one unified communications platform, helping to reduce both capital and operational TCO.
Interoperability with Microsoft Office. The visually compelling experience of Microsoft Lync 2010 is consistent throughout Microsoft Office and other business applications, including color-coded presence icons, pictures, high-resolution video, enterprise telephony, and desktop and application sharing.
Help maximize the effectiveness of your existing technology investments, and prepare to meet your continuity of operations (COOP), telework, mobility, and other communications challenges with a Microsoft unified communications solution incorporating Microsoft Lync Server 2013.
