Nov 18, 2015, 11:28 ET from Compunetix

MONROEVILLE, Pa., Nov. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Compunetix, the telecommunication industry's leading provider of high quality, high definition and highly scalable collaboration platforms, is excited to announce the upcoming release of a robust and full-featured integration between the CONTEX Summit® or Summit Olympus UC platform and Microsoft® Skype for Business solutions. Meeting organizers, enterprises and end-users no longer have to choose the widely deployed and recognized Skype for Business solution at the expense of voice quality or scalability. Users may now initiate high quality HD voice calls – point-to-point or multipoint - easily from their Skype chat window or contact list with just a few clicks. As an added benefit, Compunetix voice platforms can support both IP and traditional PSTN connections, enabling all participants to join a Summit/Olympus + Skype for Business call – not just those using a Skype IP client. 

This new integration offers the ability to leverage the outstanding features of Skype for Business – such as chat, presence, access to Microsoft Outlook contacts, mobility and the broad Skype familiarity – together with the Summit Olympus' high definition voice, hybrid call support, *0 operator assistance, recording capabilities, hosted UC resources, and immense scalability. While Skype for Business implementations typically limit the enterprise to 250 voice participants or less, users of the Summit Olympus + Skype for Business integration receive the benefit of scaling audio participants into the thousands.  Summit Olympus patented technology provides full processing capability to every voice connection, resulting in the world's most natural sounding audio conference.

"Compunetix is always researching and integrating with the best and most ubiquitous offerings in the UC space," explained Mr. Gerard Pompa, Compunetix Senior Vice President and Communications Systems Division Manager. "Our Summit Olympus + Skype for Business integration is another step in allowing enterprises and service providers the choice to engineer their offerings in a strategic manner utilizing an array of best-of-breed solutions."
