Why Unified Communications Makes Sense Now

Businesses that have been cautiously waiting and watching have yet another good reason to enter the rewarding world of Unified Communications (UC).

Earlier this month, Polycom, a noted partner of AVI-SPL, announced it is developing standards-based H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC) technology for both current and emerging UC technologies.

What does that mean for you and your business?  To put it simply, you can invest in UC without worrying that your infrastructure will suddenly become outdated. More to the point, you can continue to reap the benefits of UC that make it so attractive to companies like yours – its user-friendly integration of real-time communication services, including presence, email, instant messaging and video conferencing. Companies will also profit from SVC’s ability to deliver high-quality video and audio at any bandwidth.

Because of SVC’s interoperability and backward compatibility, companies can protect the value of their current and future UC investments, an advantage that is especially important for small businesses that must be cautious with their budgets.
