Tata Communications, a leading provider of A New World of Communications™, today launches the latest version of jamvee™ - its next generation Unified Communications platform. Built on Tata Communications’ global tier 1 network, jamvee™ brings together any client software and device on a single platform - providing an agnostic, secure, Unified Communications service. This enables easier intra and inter-company collaboration as employees, suppliers and customers can now get together via any combination of audio, video or messaging and share content in groups - across any device or through a browser.
In today’s global work environment, there is as much need to communicate and collaborate outside the organisation as there is inside. To do this you need to integrate business collaboration tools with corporate and end-user devices. However, lack of interoperability, particularly when it comes to video, desktop sharing and collaboration tools, has acted as a barrier to true collaboration. The jamvee™ Unified Communications platform has been designed with interoperability at its core. Using open APIs such as WebRTC, jamvee™ allows users to use the same enterprise grade clients they use internally to communicate with external parties. As it is delivered and hosted by Tata Communications, it provides the security, quality and reach that only a global tier 1 network can offer.
Jamvee™ significantly enhances existing Unified Communications investments. In addition to traditional video conferencing or Telepresence, participants joining virtual meetings from their enterprise soft clients can leverage jamvee’s™ full audio, video, chat and content sharing capabilities, enabling creativity, better cross-enterprise team collaboration, and better productivity. Or simply join through your browser, with a quick plug-in solution for non-WebRTC native browsers. Its open customisable platform encourages creative third party development on jamvee™, as well as allowing companies the options to pick and choose additional Unified Communications tools that work best for them commercially.
John Hayduk, President and CTO, Tata Communications, says, “Delivering the ability to collaborate easily both internally and externally with customers and partners enables productivity improvements for businesses. Interoperability is key to this, and jamvee™ takes this to the next level. By providing an open and fully customisable foundation for future Unified Communications to be added, companies can realise the full growth potential of Unified Communications quicker and easier than ever – Unified Communications on your terms”.
Jamvee™ supports IM and presence federation via SIP and XMPP that is fully compatible with the leading enterprise clients. Through a single connection to the jamvee™ Unified Communications platform, organisations gain access to a federated jamvee™ meeting room for internal and external business-to-business meetings. This greatly expands collaboration opportunities, while simplifying administration and security.
Bill Haskins, Senior Analyst and Partner at Wainhouse Research, says, “Our survey data shows that many IT decision makers are working to integrate UC-enabled desktops with existing room systems and increase the benefits of business-to-business federation – Tata Communications’ jamvee™ Unified Communications release is positioned to address these hot-buttons directly. By delivering this experience as a service and from within Tata Communications’ multi-carrier Global Meeting Exchange, customers can gain the advantage of turnkey provisioning and quality of service without the need for additional equipment or circuit installation.”
Tata Communications worked with technology partners including Acano and Synergy SKY to develop the new jamvee™ Unified Communications platform which now includes an always-on collaborative workspace where virtual teams can meet, share documents and show video in real-time. The jamvee™ rooms also act as permanent ‘war-rooms’ where users can be confident that their messages will always remain instantly available, safely secured within the platform.
O.J. Winge, CEO, Acano, says, “We are proud of our relationship with Tata Communications and what we have achieved. Jamvee™ combines interoperability and ease of use with the scale and resilience of Tata Communications’ tier 1 network. Co-workers, suppliers and customers at organisations around the globe will benefit from the collaboration opportunities now possible with jamvee™”.
Tata Communications will be showcasing its next generation jamvee™ at InfoComm 2014 (Booth N3239, June 18th – 20th, Las Vegas, Nevada)

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage. Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
