NextPlane Introduces ConverseCloud Intra-Domain Interoperability Service

NextPlane, the industry provider of providing universal federation and interoperability services, has announced intra-domain interoperability for its ConverseCloud service, the company said.

This patented technology allows unified communications (UC) and/or team collaboration (TC) users to communicate and collaborate seamlessly across different platforms — even if the platforms share the same domain name.

This feature is critical given that the vast majority (79%) of enterprises have a mixed collaboration environment. The data comes from an upcoming NextPlane survey report on the state of collaboration and the challenges of multiple collaboration platforms in the enterprise. A mixed environment is one in which two or more enterprise messaging platforms, such as Microsoft Teams, Cisco Jabber, or Slack are actively used in the company.

NextPlane, the provider of federation and interoperability services for collaboration platforms, helps enterprises seamlessly connect any internal or external team across UC and Team Collaboration platforms. NextPlane´s ConverseCloud service delivers interoperability and federation for over 20 different UC and Team Collaboration platforms, delivering seamless usability of chat, presence, file sharing, rich text, emojis, and other core collaboration functions. The service supports federation between major collaboration platforms. The company is based in Sunnyvale, California.
