(ENTERPRISE CONNECT, ORLANDO, FL. 16 MARCH 2015) Jabra, a leading manufacturer of intelligent audio solutions, today announces the launch of its new Jabra Stealth UC Bluetooth® mono headset – a unified communication (UC) enhanced evolution of its original Jabra Stealth, supporting mobile workers everywhere.

As the lightest headset in its class, at only 0.24 ounces, the Jabra Stealth UC is both discreet and easy to bring with you - providing a true hand- and hassle-free experience. Adding the Skype for Business certification to the feature list, Jabra Stealth UC/MS is the perfect all-in-one choice for everyday work use with a smartphone, tablets or laptop - by simply inserting the pre- connected USB dongle. Jabra Stealth UC together with Skype for Business connects people everywhere to achieve more, together.

“We strive to help the mobile worker gain the full benefits from both their mobile devices and UC solutions. It is our experience that one of the most important factors for users embracing unified communication is the headset, which bridges the gap between the user and the promise of increased efficiency and flexibility. The Jabra Stealth UC is the perfect device to provide this bridge and allows the user to stay in their conversation zone all day - everywhere.” says Holger Reisinger, senior vice president, products, marketing, alliances and global accounts of Jabra.

“Jabra is excited about the announcement of Skype for Business as it aligns with Jabra’s New Ways of Working Vision which advocates using Jabra technology to improve collaboration and productivity. With the transition from Microsoft Lync to Skype for Business, Jabra is also pleased to announce that our entire portfolio of audio devices are certified Skype for Business and set to support the collaboration needs of our joint customers and partners”, Holger adds.  

To ensure that Jabra Stealth UC meets all the demands of the flexible worker, Jabra has developed the headset in close collaboration with customers and partners such as Microsoft.
