IGEL Tech Memories from Sébastien Pérusat – August 2021

Dear IGEL Community,

How can we get rid of Unified Communication? Is there someone out there who needs to communicate with people and use some next-gen features like Screensharing? Is getting the latest security or feature updates of a Remote protocol client. Something we are looking for? I mean, what would happen if we all agree that updates only need to be installed when we have time for it.

I’m not serious, obviously, but again, I feel that Unified Communication is following us/me into by day and night. I was expecting a bit slowdown since we have the Great UCC Guide from Lars Glöckner and the latest components (clients, agents, agent selectors), but I was wrong…


Autumn is almost there here in Germany, and it feels like the Unified Communication topic will stay there even when it will begin to snow 😃
