Whitepaper: Surveillance as a communications centre via UC and SIP


With unified communications, voice services (including IP telephony), instant messaging, web conferencing (audio and visual), email, SMS, and web-desks (desktops shared via an internet connection) can all be brought together using Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).

So, imagine what could be achieved if UC could then be paired with data from other site systems – such as process monitoring, surveillance, threat detection, and access control – and managed in a single environment.

This white paper from specialist vendor Synectics (Synectic Systems) explores that opportunity in greater depth by looking at the practical requirements and operational benefits of integrating UC solutions via surveillance command and control technology, particularly to aid critical decisions and incident response management.
