MUMBAI, INDIA: Alcatel-Lucent on Tuesday announced the launch of a suite of visual collaboration solutions that bring quality video to users across the enterprise.


Alcatel-Lucent's Visual Collaboration suite moves beyond restrictive telepresence solutions by employing an open solution approach that extends enterprise video to any endpoint and location, including desktop PCs, smart phones, laptops, tablets, interactive whiteboards and display screens across offices, meeting rooms and boardrooms, said a press release.

Working with SMART Technologies, RADVISION and Lifesize, Alcatel-Lucent brings a broad range of video collaboration solutions to enterprise customers, including infrastructure, applications and end points.

Leveraging presence, easy to use interfaces and 'drag—and-drop' capabilities, employees can contact each other via any device and establish a video link for a real-time 'face-to-face' conversation with content and collaboration or share content via web portals, the company claimed.


Alcatel-Lucent’s Visual Collaboration suite includes the new Alcatel-Lucent Interactive Whiteboard Solution, which integrates content sharing using the Alcatel-Lucent My Teamwork application with employee workgroup collaboration enabled by the SMART Board 685ix interactive whiteboard system. The interactive whiteboard connects participants across conference rooms and remote locations, enabling them to write and collaborate in real time with all video conference participants seeing what is being written and reviewed.

The Visual Collaboration suite also includes web-based video conferencing clients for employee desktops, and a range of solutions that feature infrastructure and dedicated end points from RADVISION and Lifesize for small, medium and large conference rooms, and boardrooms.

“Alcatel-Lucent’s Visual Collaboration suite brings video solutions across the enterprise to a broader range of users, locations, and endpoints,” said Tom Burns, president, Enterprise and Strategic Industries, Alcatel-Lucent.

“Our strategy is designed to give our enterprise customers choice with a wide range of cost-effective options for video, from working with our valued solution partners to offer joint solutions to delivering embedded video capabilities with our new OpenTouch communications platforms,” he added.
