AT&T Federates UC Networks for Cross-Platform Collaboration

DALLAS -- AT&T now helps make business collaboration simpler with the launch of AT&T UC Federation. The service allows suppliers, partners and customers to communicate in real time across different networks.

Disparate unified communications (UC) systems have made this kind of seamless collaboration problematic in the past. Now AT&T UC Federation can enable internal and external teams to collaborate freely across supported UC platforms.

Employees benefit from being able to instant message and view the online presence of other users as if they are all on the same UC platform.

AT&T UC Federation, created in AT&T Labs, supports a range of UC platforms, including Microsoft Lync and Cisco Jabber. Organizations have the flexibility and security to:

  • Connect to supported UC platforms of partners, suppliers and vendors
  • Control which organizations can communicate at the company, group or user level
  • Allow communication methods (like instant messaging) and block others (such as online presence). Businesses that are merging or creating joint ventures with other businesses can benefit from AT&T UC Federation. It gives customers the flexibility to grow and coexist without being limited to a single UC platform. It also helps support seamless collaboration when a company switches to a new communications platform.
