Unified Communication & Collaboration
Unified Communication (UC) is a technology for enhancement of communication in enterprises and integrates various communication media into a standardized application environment. OpenScape Business simplifies business processes in enterprises, for instance through continuous presence management, e.g. automatically forward calls to your cell phone when you are out of the office. But the provision of dial-in conferences, personal voicemail (voice box), personal Fax Message Box, Instant Messaging (IM), use of the cell phone as a telephone system extension, Contact Center, Video and Web Collaboration are also combined in this standardized solution. UC optimizes business processes, work time is saved, employees are more satisfied, and enterprises become more profitable.
The business world along with the work processes of enterprises and their employees have fundamentally changed. In addition to being at their office workstation, employees are often on the road from where they must also have access to your enterprise communications. OpenScape Business gives your enterprise flexible integrated mobility choices suitable for mobile communication at all sites. These include, for instance, integration of smartphones and tablet PCs, use of cordless/DECT and WLAN telephones right up to full integration of home office employees with continuous access to your business communications.

The country specific power cord must be ordered separately. For thermal reasons, the second slot of the OSBiz X3W system must not be equipped with any of the following card types, if a SLAD16 is installed in the first slot: SLAD16, SLAD8, SLAD4, 16SLA, 8SLA, 4SLA.

Further sleeves must be ordered separately, as required; one sleeve must be calculated per 3 additional ports (S0, analog, UP0/E, loop start).
