Microsoft Lync: A first look.
The launch event barely over, industry experts are already assessing the unified communications package.
"Testing lab partner Miercom recently conducted testing on the just released Microsoft Lync Server 2010 unified communications solution. The focus of this test review was to verify new features, functionality, performance, security, and resiliency, and verify that new enhancements corrected deficiencies noted in previous test reviews," writes Rob Smithers on No Jitter.
"Microsoft Lync is far more than a rebranding of the previous UC offering, Office Communications Server (OCS). Overall we were extremely impressed with Microsoft Lync 2010, and feel Microsoft can now do serious battle on the enterprise unified communications front. We verified a rich feature set, high quality audio, video and web conferencing, a wide variety of third-party "Lync optimized" peripherals, voice-to-text voice mail preview sent to email, and many more business-enabling applications and functions," Smithers writes.
