See it. Hear it. Respond. Acronym Definitions Unified Messaging (or UM) is the integration of different streams of communication ( , Fax, voice, etc) into a single, or, unified ”message store”, accessible from a variety of different devices. Unified messaging is a subset of a fully integrated Unified Communications system Examples of UM products include: Avaya Unified Messenger (or Avaya UM) Avaya Modular Messaging (or MM) w/ Exchange or Lotus Notes Backend

See it. Hear it. Respond. Acronym Definitions Unified communications (or UC) is "an industry term used to describe all forms of call and multimedia/cross-media message-management functions controlled by an individual user for both business and social purposes”. This potentially includes the integration of fixed and mobile voice, , instant messaging, presence, voic , fax, audio, video and web conferencing, unified messaging, unified voic , and white-boarding into a single environment while offering the user a more complete but simpler and more effective experience. Examples of UC products include: Microsoft Exchange / Live Communications Server (or LCS) Microsoft Exchange / Office Communications Server (or OCS) IBM Lotus Notes / Sametime Avaya Application Enablement Server (or AES) for OCS / LCS Presence and Click to Call

See it. Hear it. Respond. The difference between UM and UC Unified Communications is sometimes confused with Unified Messaging, but it is distinct. Unified Communications refers to a real-time delivery of communications based on the preferred method and location of the recipient; Unified Messaging systems culls messages from several sources (such as , voice mail and faxes), but holds those messages for retrieval at a later time. Unified Communications can include a variety of elements, such as instant messaging, telephony, video, , voic , and white-boarding all of which could be brought into real time and coordinated. The concept of presence is also a factor – knowing where one’s intended recipients are and if they are available, in real time – and is itself a key component of unified communications. To put it simply, Unified Communications integrates all the systems that a user might already be using and helps those systems work together in real time.
