A Look Under the Hood of IBM Sametime Collaboration Technology
Unlike Microsoft's OCS, Sametime is designed for a multi-vendor environment and has several optional configurations.
"Sametime is IBM's software platform for unified communications and collaboration. Sametime provides services such as aggregated presence, instant messaging, online meetings, VoIP/video and incoming call control, while enabling the integration of multi-vendor telephony and video systems," writes No Jitter's Doug Carolus.
"While offering integration with most telephony servers, companies can use either vendor plugins with Sametime Standard (good for single vendor environments) or use Sametime Unified Telephony to deliver common UC capabilities across a mixed vendor infrastructure," Carolus writes.
