News : Unify Introduces OpenScape 4000
MUNICH and RESTON, Va., Nov. 19, 2013 -- Unify, formerly known as Siemens Enterprise Communications, introduces the latest version of its enterprise communications platform, including key enhancements and new branding, enabling enterprises to take advantage of the new way to work. The newly-released Version 7 of OpenScape 4000 – known formerly as HiPath 4000 – includes important new features like One Number service, increased security, and improved UC integration. Unify also announces that OpenScape 4000 V7 becomes the release level that will provide customers a clear path to Project Ansible, the company's highly-anticipated communication and collaboration solution.
OpenScape 4000 is a unified communications solution for enterprises looking to increase workplace productivity and effectiveness while continuing to leverage existing investments in IP and TDM platforms. As a communications solution, it offers a rich set of endpoints, mobility choices, edge solutions, unified communications, and standards-based integration and interoperability with business-critical applications and system.
"As Unify moves towards the path to Project Ansible and the new way to work, it is important that customers get the business benefits of UC today, such as the ability to support mobile workers, easy collaboration between teams across the Enterprise and the ability to reduce latency in decision making. It's also essential that existing customers that have already invested in technology have a simple migration strategy to the future. Customers do not want to get locked into a dead-end architecture," said Tim Banting, Principal Analyst, Collaboration and Communications, Current Analysis. "OpenScape 4000 is an important step in that strategy."
