Biamp Systems Equips Tesira(R) Platform with Lync Enterprise Voice Integration

Addition of new hardware dialer increases ease-of-use for both VoIP and POTS-based conferencing

BEAVERTON, Oregon -- June 17, 2015 -- Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, today announced new Lync Enterprise Voice integration and a new hardware dialer for its flagship Tesira(R) platform. VoIP integration support coupled with the new HD-1 hardware dialer provides an easy-to-install, streamlined conferencing solution.

By adding support for Lync Enterprise Voice to the Tesira platform, teleconferencing applications that utilize a Lync Server as their actual VoIP server can increase flexibility by turning a TesiraFORTÉ into a VoIP endpoint for any Lync-based system. Lync Enterprise Voice integration will be available on both AVB and non-AVB configurations of the TesiraFORTÉ VI, as well as Tesira SERVER and SERVER-IOs equipped with the SVC-2 card.

The HD-1 hardware dialer combines stylish industrial design with intuitive functionality that interacts seamlessly with the Tesira platform to conduct VoIP or POTS-based calls. Featuring Power over Ethernet (PoE) for single cable installations and a backlit LCD display, the HD-1 dialer also incorporates a 12-button dial pad with 13 additional function buttons, plus four programmable buttons. The HD-1 provides users with standard features such as call status, programmable speed dials, recently dialed numbers, multi-line support, and hold and flash functions. The HD-1 hardware dialer is compatible with Tesira SERVER and SERVER-IO, as well as both AVB and non-AVB configurations of TesiraFORTÉ TI and TesiraFORTÉ VI devices.

"Equipping our Tesira platform with Lync Enterprise Voice support brings a straightforward and up-to-date connectivity to today's VoIP infrastructures," said Justin O'Connor, audio products manager at Biamp Systems. "Combining this with a new hardware dialer simply delivers a well-rounded package for both VoIP and POTS conferencing needs."

"From the company's VoIP Certification Training to Lync Enterprise Voice integration, Biamp is obviously committed to enhancing the creation and use of VoIP solutions," shared Frost & Sullivan's Industry Principal Rob Arnold. "Biamp's focus to make VoIP easier for integrators and end users is evident."

Tesira's new HD-1 hardware dialer and Lync Enterprise Voice support will be on display at InfoComm 2015 in Orlando, Florida at booth 743. Tesira firmware and software upgrades will be available in fall 2015, followed by the HD-1 later in the year. More information on Biamp's entire portfolio of networked media systems is available at
