Social applications such as Apple’s FaceTime and Skype generally lack the professionalism necessary for communicating with co-workers and customers. For this, the Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CallManager) fits the bill. A UCM can be configured to a Unified Phone to include integration with an internal Active Directory for quick contact lookup, multi-user conference calling and video stream via a ¼” CCD with manual focus and automatic white balance. As soon as a call is received, video begins projecting on the phone’s main screen. The screen will be occupied by the active communicator, with voice-activated switching. Other features can include direct voicemail access, speakerphone and mute buttons and a dedicated headset port.
