How to Support Unified Communications in an Audiovisual Environment
Bridging the Technology Gap
Remote collaboration is easier than ever before. From desktops and mobile devices, employees hold ad hoc audio and video conference calls, present and share content, send instant messages, schedule meetings, and more.
