VBrick Systems today announced that it has achieved Silver Communications Competency certification in the Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) Partner Network. Attaining this certification assures VBrick customers that the organization is committed to exceeding the integration and support requirements of Microsoft Unified Communications & Collaboration (UCC) solutions. VBrick is uniquely positioned to deliver video streaming solutions into Microsoft UCC implementations.
To achieve Microsoft Silver Communications competency VBrick had to provide real world deployment examples as well as meet rigorous testing requirements. This effort assures Lync customers that deployment of VBrick’s Lync streaming gateway will seamlessly enable their organization to deliver live streaming video content to thousands or tens of thousands of Lync clients. Those viewers will be able to watch and collaborate, leveraging the full suite of Lync tools.
“We continue to heavily invest in our Microsoft relationship. Achieving Silver Communications Competency is just one example, putting us in the top 5 percent of all Microsoft partners worldwide. We have proven that we have the expertise required to develop and deliver UCC solutions, and we now have early access to the next generation of Microsoft innovation. VBrick is in a strategic position to leverage this certification to ensure our products take advantage of all future Microsoft UC services and our customers are guaranteed that video will continue to be a core UCC service within Microsoft environments,” said John Shaw, chief operating officer, VBrick.
VBrick and Microsoft - Video-enabled Unified Communications and Collaboration
Customers deploying UCC solutions need video streaming to be a core part of their business processes. Corporations, educational institutions, healthcare facilities and government agencies are using Microsoft’s OCS/ Lync with VBrick’s enterprise IP video streaming solution to view, collaborate and manage video for meeting and executive broadcasts, TV distribution, and surveillance and security applications. Video can be viewed directly from a Microsoft OCS/Lync client, resulting in a highly-scalable solution that securely connects thousands of users across the globe via their desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Likewise VBrick makes it easy to search and view for stored content by integrating with SharePoint. Users can access video via their traditional SharePoint accounts even as it is intelligently served from the VBrick ecosystem, improving security, assuring device compatibility and offering detailed reports on usage/access
