PRLog (Press Release) - Nov. 16, 2012 - SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- NextPlane, Inc., (http://www.nextplane.net), the market leader in cloud-based federation services for unified communications (UC), is now offering free Google federation to organizations using Microsoft OCS, Microsoft Lync, or IBM Sametime. NextPlane shortens the time it takes to setup federation with Google to less than a day, and eliminates the hassle of installing and configuring an XMPP gateway. NextPlane's cloud-based service does not require any on-premise hardware or software component.

Unlike using XMPP gateways from Microsoft or IBM, end-users benefit from a richer feature set, such as presence, and enhanced presence (custom presence states and activity-based presence). Moreover, IT organizations benefit from greater reliability and scalability, access to usage reports, and 24/7 service availability with no hidden costs. Google federation is being offered as part of free membership in UC Exchange, a cloud-based UC federation service that allows members to find, connect, and collaborate with other federation-ready organizations. Companies who upgrade to a paid subscription to the NextPlane UC Exchange federation service can access additional features including voice and video federation with Google (a feature unique to NextPlane), and federation with other UC platforms, social media, and Skype.

"Our free Google federation for organizations with a Microsoft or IBM unified communications platform gives users a significantly better real time collaboration experience." said Farzin Shahidi, founder and CEO of NextPlane. "By using NextPlane UC Exchange IT departments can go beyond the serious limitations of Inter-vendor UC interoperability solutions which are not being addressed by UC vendors."

In addition to the free Google federation service organizations can access to the UC Exchange Management Portal to search the UC Exchange Members Directory of over 100 'federation ready' organizations, accept inbound federation requests at a no additional charge, and get access to usage reports.
