Communications Complexity and Increased Collaboration is Driving the Need for Change. The explosion in growth of the number of people working remotely – or mobile – and the trend towards Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), or 'consumerisation' of IT, is driving the need for change within Enterprise IT. Furthermore, the need for businesses to be more agile and adaptable to enable greater workforce collaboration and improved customer interactions also creates additional demands on the business IT function.
Unified Communications solutions provide the perfect response to these dynamic and diverse business needs and can act as an enabler of business process transformation.
Active Communications Server (ACS)
The Active Communications Server is an all-in-one UC platform based upon Microsoft Skype for Business and is a fully-featured Unified Communications solution delivering Presence, Instant Messaging, Video Conferencing and Voice for organisations of any size.
The ACS solution
The ACS platform is an easy to deploy UC solution that consolidates the number of appliances and servers required. With plug and play simplicity, ACS is the most cost effective solution enabling rapid implementation of a Microsoft Skype for Business solution in a small 1U footprint.
With its 'out of the box' ready to deploy implementation, the ACS solution reduces deployment costs and complexity, shortens the install and implementation cycle, and delivers a faster customer return on investment. Advanced techniques are used to quickly and easily install ACS within the enterprise network. The Active Directory Connector facilitates a quick and easy integration within the existing IT environment without any disturbance to the existing infrastructure. The integrated administration application provides an intuitive interface for managing moves, adds and changes and other routine maintenance tasks.
The ACS UC solution can integrate either with the existing PBX in a hybrid deployment scenario, or as a replacement for either a traditional TDM based or other VoIP PBX as the primary communication solution. Deployment of Microsoft Skype for Business solution has never been easier!
