Unisys Deploys Quintum’s Tenor VoIP Gateway
Quintum, a provider of VoIP technologies, has announced that Unisys, a provider of IT services and solutions, has deployed its Tenor VoIP gateway in its ‘unified communications hosted trial’ service.
The service allows customers to test Microsoft’s unified communications technology at no cost, including Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, and Microsoft Office Live Meeting.
Unisys was selected by Microsoft for its expertise in developing communications solutions on the Microsoft platform and its ability to manage reliable enterprise-class applications. Similarly, Unisys evaluated the Microsoft-certified gateway vendors and selected Quintum based on its long term working relationship with Microsoft in providing support for Office Communications Server 2007 in the Tenor line of VoIP switches and gateways.
The Tenor CMS (Carrier MultiPath Switch) was adopted because it provided back-end support for the unified communications platform and had the capacity to support a hosted platform.
Unisys developed, implemented and manageed the hosted trial service in conjunction with Microsoft. The program allows Unisys and Microsoft salespeople to sign up to 20 accounts per customer to evaluate the latest unified communications technology from Microsoft for 30 days, including e-mail, calendaring, unified messaging, multi-party instant messaging, and voice and video conferencing.
