Multivendor interoperability is a must if UC is going to take off; few if any enterprises will get all of their UC infrastructure and applications from a single vendor. But the vendors, to date, have been busy defending their turf and trying to grab others’ territory, so they are lagging in interoperation standards and testing. This session will highlight the interoperation needed for the top UC applications and will help you understand how much has really been accomplished, and how much farther there is to go. A panel of leading vendors will respond with their claims, commitments and directions and will comment on industry efforts to establish standards via the Unified Communications Interoperability Forum (UCIF) and the Internet standards bodies.
