The Jabra Evolve 65 UC Stereo headset delivers high-quality audio and easy connectivity — a benefit for telehealth and remote teams.
Connecting the Jabra Headset with Collaboration Platforms
Suddenly faced with a large remote workforce, some hospitals might be experimenting with various communication platforms for the first time. The Jabra Evolve 65 UC Stereo headset is designed to work with most of them, and I put that to the test.
Healthcare organizations may not yet have a standardized communications platform, or they could allow teams to choose their own. Some may even have a mix of hardware- and software-based communications infrastructure.
It shouldn’t matter when using the Jabra Evolve 65 UC Stereo headset, which is certified to sync easily with most major platforms. Even if using a lesser-known system, the headset will at least provide audio functionality, Jabra maintains.
Connecting the Jabra headset to six well-known platforms — Cisco Jabber, Cisco Webex, Fuze, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business — proved simple. Each platform recognized it as a compatible device with access to all advanced features offered and began working almost immediately.
Although the headset couldn’t fix bad connections brought on by heavier than normal usage with some of those platforms, it did maximize them so the call quality was as good as possible given the circumstances.
Still, the calls were typically flawless, and I never had to drop any of the more than 200 test calls made over a two-week period due to major issues.
Most of the time, it was impossible to tell that a shared, cloud-based infrastructure was hosting the calls. They sounded more like dedicated landlines in terms of quality, and much of that is due to the Jabra Evolve 65 UC Stereo and its broad compatibility.
