UniCom at IU Northwest

UniCom is Indiana University's term for Unified Communications, a service that brings voice, video, and data together in a unified desktop communication system, providing instant messaging (IM), telephony, email, desktop sharing, and audio/video conferencing.

UniCom is built using the lastest version of Microsoft's Lync and Polycom CX 600 phones in most office environments. IU Northwest migrated to UniCom during the first half of 2012.
