Welcome to the Lync Voice UC Resource Center
Many enterprises today stand at the crossroad of Unified Communications (UC) where communications and collaboration technologies are brought together under a single architecture – and where it is critical that the transition from the old to the new works with the right network infrastructure. Microsoft Lync is an enterprise-ready Unified Communications platform that connects people everywhere, on desktop and mobile devices, as part of their everyday productivity experience, and Lync continues to be one of the fastest growing UC solutions on the market. However, with the pervasiveness of anywhere, anytime collaboration, companies must ensure that corporate data is protected as it travels from location to location and that sophisticated voice, data and video services are delivered securely to enterprise users. Have you started your own UC journey? Odds are that you have – or at least thought about it. Wherever you are, we invite you to be an active part of the Lync Voice UC Community, powered by insight from industry experts and equipped with resources and tools to make your journey a little easier – and more collaborative.
