Partnership further developed9 February 2017
Unified communication terminal solution provider Yealink has announced that its video conferencing hardware endpoints are fully compatible and optimised for the StarLeaf UC OpenCloud platform.
The tight integration between Yealink video conferencing meeting room hardware and the StarLeaf UC OpenCloud is said to offer users complete interoperability between their Yealink system and all other video systems, including Skype for Business.
As well as direct calling between all hardware and software endpoints, Yealink users will also benefit from multiparty scheduled conferencing for up to 50 participants. Furthermore, according to StarLeaf, the UC OpenCloud delivers a secure and scalable videoconferencing environment, centralised management and none of the costs and complexities of owning and managing network infrastructure.
As part of the technical alliance, Yealink has introduced StarLeaf’s QuickConnect protocol, which allows its VC series of endpoints to be registered to the cloud, automatically configured and deployed in minutes.
“We are two major industry leaders with a shared vision to bring affordable, easy to use and manage video solutions to businesses of all shapes and sizes,” said Mark Loney, CEO, StarLeaf. “With UC OpenCloud, Yealink users will benefit from a rich environment with true any to any connectivity, delivered by the most advanced communications cloud available today.”
“We have joined forces with StarLeaf to offer our customers a complete video endpoint and cloud solution that delivers on the need for interoperability with all other systems including Skype for Business,” said Howard Qiu, sales director of Videoconferencing, Yealink.
