Microsoft UC

Unified Communications is the new paradigm in communication. The vision of Unified Communications is to merge most forms of communication into a single system that enables asynchronous communication such as e-mail, to be closely linked with synchronous / real-time communications such as telephony, IM (Instant Messaging), video calls and conferences.


Common to all modes of communication within unified communications is presence also known as status. In order to ensure that communication between parties is efficient and that the sender / caller chooses the appropriate method for contacting the recipient, it is imperative that the sender / caller knows the availability of the recipient, which in Unified Communications is typically displayed with an accessibility icon and possibly a short descriptive text.


BluePosition is the first supplier in the world to integrate the mobile network operator's mobile status information with Microsoft’s unified communications solution - Office Communications Server 2007 or Lync Server, BluePosition’s solution enables the user of Office Communicator, Outlook, SharePoint, etc. to see the availability (presence) of their colleagues desk phone or mobile phone  before they initiate a call.


MOBILESTATUS for Microsoft UC is by now deployed with 8 Telco’s/MNO in the Nordics and Northern Europe, including Telenor Group, TDC, Telia, NetCom and others.
