Plantronics, a world leader in personal audio communications, has announced its membership in the newly formed Unified Communications Interoperability Forum (UCIF), a non-profit alliance of worldwide technology leaders working together to fully realise the potential of unified communications (UC).

The UCIF is dedicated to enabling standards-based, cross-vendor interoperability of UC hardware and software across enterprises, service providers and consumer clouds and is designed to enable global businesses to be more productive.

Plantronics is joined by founding members HP, Juniper Networks, Logitech/LifeSize Communications, Microsoft and Polycom, as well as Acme Packet, Aspect, AudioCodes, Broadcom, BroadSoft, Brocade, ClearOne, Jabra, RADVISION, Siemens Enterprise Communications, and Teliris.

UCIF members will collaborate to overcome existing interoperability barriers to widespread UC adoption and deliver a reliable and rich UC experience, with the goal of propelling worldwide enterprise UC adoption.

"As unified communications gains momentum, businesses are experiencing
the challenges of integrating hardware and software solutions from multiple vendors, making the UCIF initiative critical for successful deployments," said Gunjan Bhow, vice president of Unified Communications at Plantronics.

"By eliminating interoperability issues, the UCIF and Plantronics will help IT departments speed UC deployments and eliminate costs, while delivering exceptional end-user experiences."

The UCIF will work with existing industry standards, identifying and
filling the gaps between current protocols and interoperability issues
that have stalled broad adoption and deployment of valuable
communications methods.

UCIF membership is open to hardware and software solution providers, service providers and network operators. For more information, visit www.ucif.org.
