UC Planet's Lookout 1.0

The first Call Admission Control product that I've heard of so far for OCS was officially released. Actually sat next to the co-founder back at an OCS Voice Ignite event about a year ago and she was plugging it back then looking for beta testers. Good to see it finally released.

UC Planet Lookout 1.0 is the industry's first dynamic WAN Bandwidth Management (WBM) software for Microsoft OCS 2007 and OCS 2007 R2. Lookout 1.0 enables the OCS administrators and network administrators to:

  • Group the Microsoft Office Communicator (MOC) users into logical "sites" or "locations"
  • Limit calls from/to certain locations (such as remote or overseas offices)
  • Assess the usage for capacity planning and for managing available bandwidth as new users, sites and communications modes are provisioned
  • Sounds great for those times when you actually need to put a hard limit on simulatenous calls. I'm curious to try it out.
