Huawei Announces Completion of Interoperability Test between Huawei's IP Private Branch Exchange and Microsoft Lync

Huawei's IP private branch exchange has recently completed Interoperability Testing with Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync. Officials said this interconnection will further help to strengthen cooperation between both parties and boost the efficiency of communications and seamless collaboration of enterprises.

In a statement, Yi Zhiquan, general manager of Huawei's UC products, said, "The successful interconnection between Huawei's IP-PBX (News - Alert) and Microsoft Lync showcases the excellent features of Huawei's UC products on convergence and openness, and further enhances the joint competitiveness of Huawei (News - Alert) and Lync. Such interoperability applications will enrich the service offerings for UC customers and deliver better service experience to customers."

Huawei is a global information and communications technology solutions provider. The firm creates maximum value for telecom operators, enterprises and consumers by providing competitive solutions and services.

During the IOT, Huawei eSpace U1930 gateway was used as the IP-PBX to interconnect with Microsoft Lync Server 2010.

The successful Interoperability Testing shows that the device offers a wider range of unified communications (UC) services to users. It also facilitates the access of Lync to the public switched telephone network and is compatible with the existing telephone system. This further prevents the customers from making any additional investments.

Enterprise users can also use Huawei's IP-PBX to join Lync conferences, which facilitates communication and exchange to significantly improve work efficiency.

To help customers in the global enterprise market Huawei is also looking forward to partnering on more joint innovation projects with Microsoft technology.
