InterCall Releases ECC Lync Edition for Enterprise-wide Audio Conferencing Deployments

August 29, 2013 No Comments

SOURCE: InterCall

CHICAGO, August 14, 2013  InterCall, a subsidiary of West Corporation and the world’s largest conferencing and collaboration services provider, today announced the release of ECC Lync Edition, a hosted, reservation-less audio conferencing solution that complements the Microsoft® Lync unified communications platform by delivering secure, high-quality integration between VoIP and PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) users.

InterCall’s ECC (Enterprise Connectivity Conferencing) solution allows clients to leverage their voice infrastructure investment by augmenting it with InterCall’s global cloud, featuring over 400,000 access ports.  ECC Lync Edition builds on this to deliver expanded PSTN capacity and full global coverage to enterprises with investments in the Lync platform. The PSTN solution eliminates barriers caused by country-specific VoIP compliance restrictions that prevent enterprise customers from fully leveraging Lync.

As a hybrid on-premise conferencing solution that works with both IP and PSTN connections, ECC Lync Edition provides complete audio integration with PSTN audio, native conferencing control and booking – all without an end-user client download, additional plug-ins to install or additional user interfaces to learn. Now enterprises with existing Lync investments can support multiple-participant conferencing without further investments in architecture.

“With ECC Lync Edition, clients gain global conferencing coverage with superior audio quality and an easy-to-use interface,” said Rob Bellmar, Senior Vice President of Conferencing & Collaboration at InterCall. “Attaching our cloud to their Lync environment allows seamless access and integration for on and off-network participants.

ECC Lync Edition provides flexibility for expanded conference participation while allowing users to manage meetings through their Lync clients. Because of its complete global number set, an organization can obtain coverage in more than 100 countries with a single agreement.

“Every day, customers choose the Lync platform because it improves user productivity by enabling real-time, rich communication experiences. InterCall’s integrated Lync offering, qualified by Microsoft, adds significant value to customers seeking a unified environment that is affordable and easy to manage,” said Laura Howard, Senior Director at Microsoft.

InterCall partnered with Clarity Consulting, an applications developer with vast experience in Microsoft platforms, to develop ECC Lync Edition, which combines the power of Clarity Converge with InterCall’s Reservationless-Plus® audio service and the Lyncunified communications platform.

The Clarity Converge software can run on a Trusted Application Server in the enterprise environment, and InterCall’s Reservationless-Plus lets enterprises host conference calls anytime they choose via a dedicated phone number, conference code and PIN.
