Video on SJUNET get support for Lync

Compodium has been awarded a contract to expand the current “National Multiparty” service to include seamless connectivity between traditional video conferencing services and Lync.

Compodium operates since many years national video services on SJUNET, the internal IT infrastructure used by Swedish healthcare providers. The use of video in the care is increasing rapidly every year and a number of county councils are now introducing Microsoft Lync (Skype for Business) for administrative videoconferencing between employees. However, the video technology behind Lync is not compatible with existing video conferencing systems being used for video meetings and telemedicine. As a result Compodium has upgraded the “National Multiparty” service for efficient interconnectivity between relevant video systems. The solution is since the middle of June in service and available for all SJUNET users.

The contract was awarded to Compodium by Inera AB, a company jointly owned by all the county councils and regions in Sweden. Inera is currently responsible for some 50 national projects and services within national health care and is providing support to all county councils and regions in their ambition to integrate defined services into the regular operations.
