The Role of UCIF in the Federation of UC

Interoperability – and in particular, federation of UC systems – continues to be one of the biggest pain points for UC customers. The “plugfest” approach, also known as bilateral testing, becomes increasingly expensive and lengthy as the market expands, and is giving way to unilateral testing. The Unified Communication Interoperability Forum (UCIF) is creating and certifying UC interop scenarios that will give customers needed confidence while easing the burden on vendors. This panel explores the challenges faced when federating UC systems, and will delve into the challenges the UCIF can encounter on the path to a robust and comprehensive UC validation program.
