HP has introduced a portfolio of bundled unified communications (UC) systems in partnership with Cisco and Microsoft.
The HP UC portfolio brings together voice, fax, email, voicemail, video/data/audio conferencing, collaboration, wireless and mobile technologies to improve the way individuals and groups work together.
"Unified communications plans that are easy to implement and manage are an increasing priority for our customers, and HP is responding to this need," said Robb Rasmussen, vice-president for marketing and alliances at HP Services. "Our technical expertise and partner relationships make HP a leading systems integrator for UC."
The UC portfolio includes assessment, strategy and architecture services that help enterprise customers create custom roadmaps to plan their UC transformation.
The bundled software and hardware offerings are designed to address the full range of UC scenarios, including mobile devices, laptops, voice over IP and video conferencing.
The recent Cisco and Microsoft joint commitment to ongoing interoperability between their systems is what HP is seeking to build on, with its own interoperable products with its partners' offerings.
