Cisco and Polycom endpoints can now with a single click join Ubiety calls, any other SIP address that has been added into a calendar invitation. Regardless if a video conference meeting is organized internally or externally.

So how does it work?

We install a small purely on-premise windows application on your network or can cloud host and VPN in. This application has a non-intrusive calendar integration that reads the calendars of the meeting rooms (not employees calendars).

This application also communicates directly to the Cisco and Polycom video endpoints via API to add the one touch information when the meeting room is booked.

Then when an employee simply adds the meeting room as a resource to any calendar invite regardless if the meeting is internally or externally organized the application parses the meeting room/s invite and searches for the specific SIP RegEx rules.

What happens next is…

  • If it finds a rule that matches it’ll add that SIP URI to the endpoints calendar. It doesn’t matter if the meeting service is reservationless or scheduled.
  • If its a ‘Skype for Business’ invite, it’ll transform the Skype URL to a dialable SIP string on the endpoint that gateways the endpoint via our cloud Ubiety gateway. Or your own Cisco Meeting Server or Pexip gateway.
  • If there is no matching rules i.e. no meeting service in the invite. We can optionally have the application auto-schedule a Ubiety Meeting Space for the endpoint/s at time of the meeting. Which will also email all invitees of the meeting with remote guest access for other external video endpoints, Skype for business participants, web guest and global phone dial in. Or again schedule on your own Cisco Meeting Server or Pexip. Nice!

All in all saves a huge amount of time for IT & employees! Users simply walk into the meeting room and touch one button to join whatever call is organized. No need to worry about typing manual SIP URI’s or scheduling calls from the helpdesk, its all automatic.

Plus the massive benefit of adding insanely simple Skype Meetings interoperability to your video endpoints without the need to have all participants join an external bridge, simplifying the workflow and getting the best use out of your high quality meeting room assets.
