UC = Unified Communications.
Snom have also launched the UC600. A USB phone which is `optimized for Microsoft Lync`.
For full details on the announcement, see the full UC release.
If you want to place an order, contact your account manager at ProVu.
The main USP of the Snom UC edition phones is that they are a phone for Lync but also a full open standards SIP phone. This gives a few options:
- Deploy SIP now, and upgrade to UC with Lync in the future
- Use SIP for voice, but use Snom UC for presence. This shadow system is a very good way to migrate.
So buy the Snom UC edition to have a phone which is both a stand alone SIP phone and a UC phone for Lync. Protect your investment by buying open standards.
