BELTUG X-change Unified Communications - Presentations, Pictures and Replay


Is Unified Communications (UC), i.e. the smooth integration of all your communication tools, still only a dream? It may seem so for many, but the necessary technology has now reached its maturity and there are smooth migration paths available. More and more companies are committed to achieving UC, and if you are one of them these BELTUG X-Changes will help you define the steps to take. It is certain that traditional analogue technology will have to be phased out over time, so the question is not “if”, but “when”. It’s time to prepare for the new approach - which will definitely be UC.

The presentations are available at the bottom of this page for our members (just log in). Pictures can be found here.  BELTUG Replay presentation Selligent.

-Introduction: Why Unified Communications is here to stay
Roeland Vander meiren, Project Manager, BELTUG   

-Migrating to UC: Have a safe journey!
A company rarely has the luxury of starting a project as a Greenfield, so in most cases implementing UC is a migration exercise. In this presentation, Easynet shares its experience on how to safely make the journey from the legacy situation to the new “to be model”, focusing on both present and future business needs.
Bart Verhaert, Principal Solutions Consultant, Easynet

-From vision to reality – a couple of practical UC cases
As a global integrator and operator Orange Business Services is technology-independent, and thus well positioned to review the mainstream UC solutions and highlight the challenges and the typical pros and cons. Based on a few practical customer cases, different migration paths to UC will be commented.
Emmanuel Gillain, Director, Unified Communications, Orange Business Systems

-How to simplify the proliferation of technologies
The presentation will explainhow UC and collaboration solutions can simplify the proliferation of technologies that businesses are now dealing with every day. How can UC help you eliminate inefficiencies in communications, in order to make your organisation more productive and responsive?
Michaël Pisvin, Pre-Sales Manager, Avaya Belgium
-Picture this: video as an increasingly important element in UC
Cisco is well known for its IPT solutions and will highlight that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. In the future, video will certainly account for an increasing portion of all communication flows. Advanced compression technology and affordable bandwidth make it a key element to consider in planning a UC platform.
Bart Vanden Wyngaerd, Sales Director, Cisco Systems Belgium

-Unified communications without a PABX
Microsoft recently launched Lync, a new version of OCS that makes it possible to implement UC without a PABX. This milestone will change the traditional business communications landscape.
Stephane Bouillon, Solutions Sales Specialist, Microsoft Belgium and Luxemburg
Jan Dezutter, Sales Director, Interoute Belgium (MS Partner)


-User case: How Selligent implemented OCS in its very demanding communications environment
As a provider of conversion marketing and interactive CRM solutions, communications is a key tool for Selligent. The two representatives will explain the different stages the company went through in selecting and implementing Microsoft Lync, and how it did away with the PABX. Interoute provided the WAN topology and assisted with its UC expertise.
