Secure, any-to-any UC Federation & Collaboration Services

UC Federation Service
Secure B2B Communication and Collaboration Made Easy

Voice Video

Voice & Video

Open your UC client and select a federated contact from your Contacts List. Your federated business partner doesn’t have to subscribe to the service or download a plugin to connect.
Simply select the phone or video button to accept calls from federated contacts.


File Sharing

Share all your files, images, PDFs, documents, and spreadsheets with your federated colleagues on Microsoft Skype For Business, or Microsoft Lync, Cisco WebEx Messenger, and many more.


Chat & Group Chat

Seamlessly chat with external colleagues, or invite them into a group chat session, regardless of their underlying UC platforms.



When reaching colleagues outside of your organization it’s important to keep in mind that there is more to presence than “available,” “away,” or “busy.” There are custom status messages, such as “WFH”, and enhanced presence states, such as "on the phone" or "in a meeting" that help in making informed choices about the best way to contact an external colleague.


Management Portal

Securely manage all aspects of the federation process from one central location.


Policies and Disclaimers

Go beyond your UC platform’s permissions to control the type of traffic—whether that’s IM, voice, video or file transfers—that is allowed or denied across your network.
