Come along to Microsoft UC User Group London, 25th October 2012

Published 01/10/2012 - 0 Comments



Just a quick notice that it’s coming up to the next MUCUGL meet, scheduled for 25th October 2012 at the Polycom EBC in London.

It would be great to see you there.


Last October we held the event at the Polycom Executive Experience Centre, this is a great centrally located London venue and we’re pleased to be back again. Jabra are co-sponsoring this event and Stuart Black will be giving us an overview of the latest and greatest Jabra devices optimised for Lync – they’ll also be giving away 5 Supreme UC Headsets. Adam will then provide an update on some of the new and existing Polycom audio/video endpoints and bridges now qualified for Lync, including some live demos.

We also listen to your feedback and it was requested at our last meet that we do a deeper-dive into PBX interoperability with Lync, so Justin has stepped up and will deliver this technical session – EV, RCC, Simring, Gateways, Direct SIP, ISDN, ITSPs and more will all be explained! Tom will then close the event (before the regular visit to the pub) with a round-up on Lync related news and community updates.

We all look forward to seeing you there!
