UC and team collaboration vendors have struggled for years to deliver better mechanisms to integrate cellular voice services with their platforms to provide a frictionless and more functional mobile capability. Now, newer offerings like Microsoft's Operator Connect Mobile and Cisco's WebEx Go have changed the prospects for mobile UC and team collaboration as carriers open up their network interfaces to support dual numbers (i.e. business and Personal), no-touch set-up, and enhanced voice capabilities using real cellular connections rather than VoIP over cellular data. This session will feature a discussion that will help you understand the functionality available today, how the different vendors’ solutions compare, and what they intend for the future. You'll come away with a clearer understanding of how close we may be to meaningful integration of UC/team collaboration with native cellular.

Takeaways:

  • Learn how UC/team collaboration systems are integrating with cellular
  • Understand to what extent these new offerings allow you to give your end users a truly seamless mobility solution within your enterprise’s UC/team collaboration platform of choice
  • Get details on the cost of these new offerings, and whether there’s a business case for adopting them.
  • See what’s on the vendors’ roadmaps for continuing to enhance these services
