Tata Communications launches next-gen UC platform `Jamvee'
Cross-company collaboration made easier with greater interconnectivity and interoperability.
BANGALORE, JUNE 18: Tata Communications, today launched the latest version of Jamvee, its next-gen unified communications (UC) 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 a global work environment, where there is as much need to communicate and collaborate outside the organisation as there is inside, the lack of interoperability, particularly when it comes to video, desktop sharing and collaboration tools, has acted as a barrier to collaboration. "To collaborate within and outside the organisation you need to integrate business collaboration tools with corporate and end-user devices. 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" Anthony Bartolo, Senior VP, Unified Communications and Collaboration, Tata Communications told Business Line over a telephonic interaction.
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. Others can simply join through their 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 allows companies the option to pick and choose additional unified communications tools that work best for them commercially.
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 to 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 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.
Tata Communications will be showcasing its next-gen Jamvee at InfoComm 2014 (June 18th - 20th, Las Vegas, Nevada)
