WHAT IS A UNIFIED COMMUNICATION PLATFORM?

Unified communication describes an integration of real-time enterprise communication tools, which includes voice, telepresence, instant messaging tools etc. into a consistent and unified user interface and user experience across in many devices and many locations. How Does the Unified Communication Platform Work at Ankabut?

The Ankabut unified communication platform is a complete telepresence system from our partners Polycom. It encompasses call and multimedia/cross-media message-management functions controlled by an individual user for both business and social purposes. This includes any enterprise informational or transactional application process that emulates a human user and uses a single, content-independent personal messaging channel (mailbox) for contact access. Ankabut also offers AnkaMedia, our video content management system as part of the unified communication platform.

The solution integrates with enterprise applications such as Lync (now Skype-for-business), Active Directory, Exchange etc. It includes features such as voice and video chat, whiteboard functionality, meeting scheduling, remote classroom and live streaming to name a few.
