What Is IBM® Lotus® Sametime® Unified Telephony?
Here is a short excerpt from Understanding IBM Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony (This is an external IBM link):
IBM Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony (SUT) software is a new offering that is designed to make it easy to access and manage telephone communications from inside the Sametime or Lotus Notes client. The SUT offering extends the value of Sametime software as a platform for communications by providing a rich, unified communication and collaboration experience to users, allowing them to seamlessly and simply integrate voice, video, and telephony capabilities.
This is particularly beneficial for companies with multiple private branch exchange (PBX) environments. From a line-of-business perspective, integrating telephony as part of a company's unified communications platform can help improve business processes by improving collaboration and speeding decision making.
However, the telephony environment to be integrated may include tens or even hundreds of telephone systems as a result of decentralized decisions in divisions, countries, branch offices, or through acquired companies. Therefore, when implementing unified communications systems, IT and network managers are looking for solutions that can leverage and extend these disparate, mixed, multi-vendor communication systems.
