Wirelynk Unified Communications UI

Wirelynk

Wirelynk is a follow up to the Traderlynk product. It provides a simple interface for financial organisations to connect to their private wires via the Microsoft lync/Skype for business infrastructure. Multiple handsets, speakers and intercom functionality of both SIP and WebRTC can be used concurrently providing a turret like experience.
The application is put together using vanilla Javascript, html5 and css3 and is hosted either in the lync/skype for business context window, browser, mobile or in a chrome extension for the desktop.
