Nortel Builds UC Software Communication System

Nortel is expanding its Software Communication System (SCS) solution to accommodate enterprises beyond small and medium-size businesses. SCS brings solution simplicity, new applications, further plug-and-play interoperability and more opportunities for third-party development communities. A recognized leader in unified communications (UC), Nortel supports customers' evolutionary and transformational paths to UC with telephony UC solutions such as Communication Server 1000 and native UC solutions such as SCS.

SCS, which is based on Session Initiation Protocol, enables businesses to converge all of their communications into a centralized solution with open Web-based interfaces. Release 3.0 of SCS now extends support to industry-standard platforms from IBM, Dell and HP, including IBM Power Systems and System i, Dell Optiplex, and HP Proliant DL360, as well as the recently announced IBM x3350 and Dell PowerEdge R300 systems. In addition to the supported platform expansion, the rapidly growing Nortel SCS Developer Program also offers dozens of interoperable third-party products such as desktop phones, soft phones, gateways, IP consoles, applications like call recording and call accounting, wireless mobility solutions, etc.

Nortel's base user license includes all applications like voicemail and unified messaging, integrated voice conferencing, secure presence and instant messaging, desktop-based video conferencing, single number reachability, an 'informal' call center, and integration with Microsoft Outlook, IBM Lotus Notes and IBM Lotus Sametime.

SCS was developed in collaboration with Nortel and the open source community SIPfoundry.
