DALLAS, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) continues to build momentum in the unified communications (UC) space as it announces that its TNETV1072 high-performance processor powers IP phones Optimized for Microsoft Lync. TI's processor enables the enhanced voice experience with UC functions, including presence, in advanced endpoints such as the Aastra 6721ip and 6725ip and the Polycom® CX500, CX600 and CX3000 IP phones.
