Unseen UCC—how we use the technology in everyday life

Unseen UCC—how we use the technology in everyday life
UCC technology touches all of us on a daily basis, even if we don’t realize it. We use communication tools pretty much everywhere these days—in cars, at restaurants, in parks and playgrounds, and even in kitchens and living rooms.

With so many people working and studying remotely right now, UCC functions such as videoconferencing, instant messaging and more are becoming as important in the home as they are in offices away from home. The increasing number of IoT and AI-driven devices to hit the market lately has also increased the use of UCC technology in everyday life. The merging of these technologies is increasing the ways UCC can save time and improve productivity in a variety of settings.

Some examples of UCC use in everyday life

  • Bluetooth-enabled consumer electronics such as phones, cameras, televisions, speakers and headphones that simplify data sharing between devices in cars and homes.
  • Bluetooth-enabled medical equipment like stethoscopes, pacemakers or glucose monitors and fitness equipment that displays a variety of healthcare metrics
  • Apps used to order drinks or food items at fast casual restaurants and coffee chains like Starbucks—from the convenience of a car or table
  • Connected kitchen technology, including smart refrigerators from manufacturers like LG and Samsung that feature large display screens, and memo, calendar and shopping apps that allow busy families to communicate more effectively
  • Home security systems that communicate with outside companies to keep users protected
  • OnStar subscription-based communication technology that provides drivers with a host of safety benefits and conveniences
  • Phones, alert systems and other communication devices for people with special needs
