Dialogic Joins Newly Launched UCIF to Advance Unified Communications Interoperability
Dialogic, a global provider of products and technologies for multimedia and signal processing, today announced its adopter membership in the recently formed Unified Communications Interoperability Forum (UCIF), a non-profit alliance of worldwide technology leaders working together to fully realize the potential of unified communications (UC). The UCIF is dedicated to enabling standards-based, cross-vendor interoperability of UC hardware and software across enterprises, service providers and consumer clouds and is designed to enable global businesses to be more productive.
Recognizing that seamless interoperability based on open standards is one of the key requirements to drive UC further into today’s enterprises, UCIF members will collaborate to overcome existing interoperability barriers to widespread UC adoption and deliver a reliable and rich UC experience, with the goal of propelling worldwide enterprise UC adoption. Founding members of the UCIF include HP, Juniper Networks, Logitech / LifeSize Communications, Microsoft and Polycom.
“Being a member of the UCIF will allow Dialogic to stay at the forefront of UC technology and adoption and that will help better enable Dialogic products to interoperate with leading solutions providers,” said Franz-Josef Eberle, vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Marketing Group at Dialogic. “This interoperability is key for delivering features and services today and in the future.”
The UCIF will work with existing industry standards, identifying and filling the gaps between current protocols and interoperability issues that have stalled broad adoption and deployment of valuable communications methods. UCIF membership is open to hardware and software solution providers, service providers and network operators. For more information, or to join the UCIF, visit www.ucif.org.
