Look around large corporations, and you are likely to see people using an increasingly diverse mixture of VOIP, room conferencing, telepresence, and desktop videoconferencing solutions to communicate and collaborate. However, these varied elements do not always mesh together well. Watch a user with desktop videoconferencing try to reach a colleague, figure out which system they are active on, and connect to their room system or VOIP through a series of tedious steps. The need for a better way to communicate is apparent.
In software terms, the Avistar C3 Call Control™ solution is a SIP Registrar and Proxy, with URI dialing for Find Me, Follow Me calling. It integrates SIP to H.323 support with a software-based gateway (the embedded functionality of the Avistar C3 Connect™ solution) that enables users to place calls directly into videoconferencing rooms and telepresence systems, and vice versa. It includes an alias directory for inbound call routing and is web-based, for remote configuration, monitoring, and management. Finally, the Avistar C3 Call Control™ solution delivers the extreme scalability that allows large global organizations to easily expand the capability as their needs grow.
The Avistar C3 Call Control™ solution is a software component that our technology partners can use to make it easy for the users of their applications to reach any person in the organization, regardless of their communication mode. The Avistar C3 Call Control™ solution makes voice or video contact as simple as using e-mail. It automatically locates the recipient, signals and establishes the call. This component makes video calls simple and quick to initiate, so callers need not worry where the person they’re calling is located, or how to connect to their available communication device.
The Avistar C3 Call Control™ solution is also bundled within the Standalone Pro and higher Editions of all Avistar C3™ endpoints including the Avistar C3 Communicator™, Avistar C3 Media Engine™, and Avistar C3 Unified™ solutions.
