War of the UC’s

This was bound to happen.  I would call it the ‘War of the UC’s” ( pun unintended).  Now that  HP, Juniper, Microsoft, Polycom and  Lifesize  have forged this alliance, I wonder how Cisco, Avaya, Nortel, ShoreTel and Mitel would react. Surely nobody would want to be left behind.  A consortium is always more powerful  to drive new standards or drive out standards.   From the initial looks  of it,  I think the forum was founded to drive better interoperability more than to drive standards initially.   Members as of today are  software, hardware and chip vendors for UC and Telepresence products.
