BroadSource EMU SaaS allows BroadWorks UC users to better manage the complexity of subscriber configuration information

LONDON, Mar-17-2017 — /EPR TELECOM NEWS/ — BroadSource Europe Ltd, a specialist global software development and telecommunications engineering company, today announced the launch of EMU SaaS (Software as a Service) platform for its existing and prospective European customers.

EMU, developed by BroadSource, allows global Service Providers, who utilise the BroadWorks™ UC platform, to better manage the day-to-day complexity of subscriber configuration information. EMU is already available in Asia as a SaaS and is now also available for European Service Providers via the EMU SaaS delivery model.

Fifteen years of telco engineering experience, coupled with today’s Cloud delivery technologies means that EMU can now solve Service Provider problems as a Cloud Service across Europe.

Haydn Faltyn, BroadSource co-founder and CEO noted, “We are so pleased to be launching EMU SaaS to our European customers. This technology is unique to the Cloud UC ecosystem. Our customers have been benefitting from EMU operating within their own environment or our Asian point of presence for a number of years now. This next milestone means that our European Service Providers customers can now also benefit from a subscription to EMU SaaS. The power of EMU is solving really practical, everyday problems for our customers and their Cloud UC environments based on BroadWorks™ technology. We are delighted with the feedback so far and excited to have EMU available in Europe

About EMU
EMU is an Extraction, Manipulation and Update (EMU) platform for Cloud UC developed by BroadSource and specialising in the BroadWorks™ platform. With just one click, Service Providers can:

  • EXTRACT every piece of information from their BroadWorks™ environment to audit, analyse or backup customer group configurations
  • MANIPULATE thousands of configuration attributes in seconds, preparing for migrations
  • UPDATE, en masse, configuration settings, saving hundreds of ‘clicks’ and many hours

Our European Customers
Using their own secure BroadWorks™ credentials, Service Providers and their partners can perform one or all of the services hosted within the BroadSource multi-tenanted, fully redundant EMU SaaS instance. EMU now performs many subscriber manipulation tasks that where once thought of as impossible. As Cloud UC subscriptions take over premise PBX numbers, EMU is perfectly positioned to allow the Service Provider to rapidly scale, contain operational costs and simplify the management of large volumes of subscriber configuration data. Service Providers in Europe now have an array of ‘every day use cases’ to better manage their BroadWorks ™ powered Cloud UC platform.

Mobile World Conference 2017: Soracom launches IoT connectivity services in Europe

BARCELONA, Mar-2-2017 — /EPR TELECOM NEWS/ — Soracom announced this week at Mobile World Conference its launch of IoT connectivity services in Europe and confirmed commitment to growing IoT by eliminating the barriers related to security, price, speed-to-value and scalability that currently limit IoT development.

The Internet of things offers endless possibilities. With IoT adoption growing quickly, developers are finding that security and scalability remain key challenges. For start-ups and developers, typical enterprise-grade solutions are out of reach, and more affordable solutions often lack crucial security features.

“We offer low start-up costs, no binding contracts and a flexible pay-as-you-go model for every use case, from garage-level prototyping to massive industrial deployments,” said Parag Mittal, Chief Commercial Officer of Soracom. “We need a sustainable Internet of Things. A smart meter that consumes lot of power for onboard encryption and data transmission to the cloud is not that smart. By reducing power and data consumption on the device side, and delivering a private network as a service for everyone, we ensure a secure, scalable, sustainable ecosystem for IoT.”

“Soracom aims to use its platform to contribute to the overall growth of the IoT industry,” said Ken Tamagawa, Chief Executive Officer of Sorcom. “Current IoT connectivity providers do not really offer secure and swift delivery of services that are affordable and available for everyone in a democratized way. Connecting devices to the internet or the cloud is the easy part. Securing devices and data is the most critical. If it’s on the public internet, it’s hackable. Our customers connect their devices directly to the cloud, using a private network provided by Soracom instead of public internet.”

Widely recognized as one of Japan’s leading IoT technology providers, Soracom uses a unique approach and architecture to provide secure data transfer at lower costs for its global customers and brings this technology to users across all industries. Canon, Konica MinoltaSafecast, Komatsu, Omniflow, and Enerbrain are just a few among the 5,000 clients Soracom connects today.

Soracom’s SIM cards are tailored for IoT devices and can be managed through APIs and a web console that allow convenient, real-time activation/deactivation of SIMs, traffic monitoring, network configuration and visualization, storage and management of data, and many more detailed operations.

WorldSIM launches a new international SIM card that ends roaming charges for travellers worldwide

LONDON, March 24, 2016 — /EPR TELECOM NEWS/ — Finally the extortionate roaming charges travellers face when they go abroad has become a thing of the past.

In Canada and Mexico, a call back to the US is just 22 cents and it’s free to receive calls. What’s really impressive is that WorldSIM offers international travellers going further afield very low rates as well. In Europe data rates start from 15 cents per MB and so do calls. Incoming calls are free in 95 of the most popular international destinations. The service remains a prepaid service and no subscriptions are required. Just recharge when you need more credit.

The new WorldSIM international sim card also offers roaming in more destinations than most operators worldwide. With their new release sim card, 25 new roaming destinations have been added bringing the total to 195 roaming countries. This means travellers can now stay connected for less in more exotic locations like Belize and the Bolivia.

Very soon, WorldSIM will also be launching global bundles, in many destinations travellers will be able to get 1GB of data and unlimited calls for just $30.

This new travel SIM card offers billing in multiple currencies and the technology has been improved to allow the sim to connect automatically to the operators with the best rates and coverage.

New product launch: TechTable Pty Ltd announces the release of their flagship multi award winning product “TechTable” in the United States

DELIVERING ADVANCED SAFETY AND INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY TO THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS INDUSTRY.

Sydney, Australia, October 28, 2014 — /EPR TELECOM NEWS/ — The award-winning TechTable was officially launched in the US at the BICSI Fall conference and provides a portable, lightweight and sturdy work surface for communications technicians to safely and efficiently terminate fibre optic and copper communications cabling.

Installers of highly complex cabling projects have seen rapid advances and developments in termination technologies however there have been very little improvements in the cluttered and uncomfortable work environments.

By using the TechTable, installers can now perform tasks at waist height and easily rotate between standing and seated positions. The platform is height adjustable, stable and comfortable and allows technicians to temporarily mount a patch panels and components onto the table for faster loading, termination consistency and improved accuracy.

David McHarg, Managing Director of TechTable Pty Ltd commented “Installers are faced with fairly primitive working conditions, meaning that neck, shoulder and back pain is not uncommon. Often technicians sit on milk crates, or in the cabinet, and are squeezed into a confined spaces for hours at a time, I couldn’t help but think there must be a better way.”

After much of his own research, David formed a team consisting of OHS consultant Glenda Snoxall, ACT Safety Regulator and Ergonomist Richard Siddell and Peter McKay of Industrious Design to develop a solution. Following an in-depth risk assessment and report in accordance with the code of practice for the prevention of Musclo-Skeletal disorders 2007 the TechTable was designed to address the key features required from a health and safety aspect and ensured compliance with this code of practice.

Prior to commercial release, The TechTable was trialled by a number of communications and electrical service companies with feedback indicating that it not only offered a much more comfortable position than traditional installation methods, but also delivered far greater accuracy and speed. Testing also identified that manual handling risks were either eliminated or reduced, and the installer’s productivity was increased by up to 24%.

The TechTable is designed for easy daily transport inside a padded carry bag and the set-up time is less than one minute. The dimensions are designed to suit tight-fit positions in cluttered computer rack environments, telecommunications rooms and data centres.

Currently the Tech table is used throughout Australia and has successfully launched in the US. For more information, including product specifications and OHS/WHS data, visit TechTable (http://www.techtable.co)

The 3CX Mobile Device Manager On Premise edition provides businesses with an inexpensive and easy to manage solution”, said Nick Galea, 3CX CEO. “3CX Mobile Device Manager allows businesses to fully retain control of their data without the complexity and headache that other mobile device management solutions pose.”

Easy to Deploy and Manage

3CX Mobile Device Manager allows companies to leverage their Windows Server knowledge and infrastructure and thus deploy a mobile device management solution without the additional administration overhead.

Other mobile device management solutions are either optimised for hosted and thus difficult to install, require Linux knowledge or are prohibitively expensive.

Finally, an Affordable On Premise Mobile Device Management Solution

Many MDM vendors only offer cloud solutions, which drastically hinders businesses looking to retain control of their mobile data. On premise MDM solutions can be very expensive to purchase and difficult to deploy and manage. 3CX Mobile Device Manager differentiates itself from the competition as its On Premise edition is affordable and easier to deploy and manage, unlike some other cumbersome MDM solutions. Businesses are reducing their expenses and are therefore reluctant to pay the enterprise-level pricing and support the competition demands.

Meet Your Legal, Reporting and Internal Policy Requirements

Companies that need to retain full control of their data for internal policy reasons or are legally obliged to provide reports to HIPAA or SEC have faced a very limited choice of mobile device management solutions. Businesses who face these requirements have been forced to shelve their mobile device management plan or reluctantly move to a difficult to manage and expensive MDM solution. The 3CX Mobile Device Management On Premise edition addresses this market.

Private Cloud, On Premise or Hosted: Your Choice

Experience all the features of the On Premise edition of 3CX Mobile Device Manager for free for up to five devices. Downloading this edition is easy and only takes a few minutes. Read the step by step guide on how to get started, the installation and configuration manual and user manual.

North American UC and IP integrators drive customer care improvement with SJS Solutions digital signage and wallboard technology

With the clear goal of protecting their customers against the negative effects of poor customer care, ShoreTel Unified Communications and IP integrators have been calling on SJS Solutions to provide wallboards and digital signage solutions that drive improvements in agent behaviour, customer care and profitability.

Digital signage and contact center wallboard experts’ SJS Solutions continue to attract customers and resellers throughout North America. SJS are the sole developers of Optymyse4™, an enterprise wallboard product that offers unparalleled levels of screen design flexibility and Optymyse Instant™ an entry level wallboard product designed for smaller call and contact centers.

In the last 3 months the SJS reseller network has been strengthen with the inclusion of IP integrators: Xtelesis in California, Converged Technology Professionals who cover Wisconsin and Illinois, Optinet Systems of Canada and IPC Technologies, based in Virginia. All of these companies have been helping their ShoreTel customers improve customer care and agent communication through the installation of SJS Solutions, contact center wallboard technology.

“When talking through our needs with SJS, it was soon clear that their Optymyse digital display solution was purposely designed for automatic graphic scaling to any size digital display screen and also interoperable with ShoreTel Enterprise Contact Center, thus perfectly suited to our customer’s requirements. SJS saved Optinet unnecessary development time and money. Needless to say we’ve added SJS Solutions to our contact centre peripheral product portfolio.”Suzanne Sherrod, President of Optinet Systems

The influx of interest from North America grew from the attendance by SJS at ShoreTel’s Technology Partner Conference in Orlando 2012, where SJS were able to show resellers and customers exactly how their wallboard solutions were special.

With installations in the UK, Europe, North America, Asia and Australia SJS already have a global presence and anticipate further worldwide growth as their reseller program moves into the second half of the year.

CEO Stephen Pace, who is heading up the global expansion said;
“With the introduction of our latest wallboard solution Optymyse4™, we are able to offer companies unparalleled screen design flexibility so they can create dynamic displays that incorporate multi-media and keep agents engaged. Easy to read, animated, multi-media wallboards are a proven, cost effective way to drive improvements in agent behaviour, and customer care and, ultimately improve the bottom line.”

“After more than 15 years in customer care I am pleased to say that how companies treat their customer is finally getting the attention it deserves. More and more companies are leveraging, how they treat their customers, as part of their brand, and that’s good news for the consumer. It does mean though that the companies making these promises must give their agents the best tools and the right environment so they deliver on these promises.”

The Technology

SJS continue to improve their digital signage and wallboard technology and are constantly looking for ways to deliver more for less.

Right now SJS are able to offer a raft of features using very small compact hardware. Their most complex and feature rich solution Optymyse4™ is able to deliver live news, multi-media, animation and endless branding possibilities via a tiny PC that weighs less than 2.2Lbs (1kg).

MDM of Steel – Reclaim Control of Corporate Email on Android!

3CX, developer of the award-winning Windows VoIP PBX 3CX Phone System, announces the launch of 3CX Mobile Device Manager version 6.3 which provides unparalleled Android manageability by allowing administrators to remotely configure corporate email, and retain control of the sensitive stored attachments and emails. 3CX DroidDesktop has also been integrated, providing administrators the ability to remote control Android smartphones and tablets.

“Up until now, Android has lacked the management features to control and secure email. Hampered by Android’s inability to manage corporate email, that mantle has traditionally fallen to Blackberry. With 3CX Mobile Device Manager 6.3, businesses can have peace of mind as they can securely and efficiently deploy corporate email as well as delete emails and attachments from Android devices at any point”, said Nick Galea, 3CX CEO.

Secure & Manage Corporate Email and Attachments

3CX Mobile Device Manager incorporates the most popular commercial Android email client – AquaMail, allowing administrators to remotely configure corporate email and retain control of stored attachments and mail.The stock Android email app is very limited, whereas AquaMail provides administrators with full control over corporate email, without affecting the user’s personal emails. Companies can now delete all corporate emails as well as the attachments that are stored on the device when an employee leaves the company. 3CX Mobile Device Manager provides Enterprise-style features for SMBs at a fraction of the cost and administration effort!

Remote Control of Android Phones

3CX Mobile Device Manager has integrated the popular 3CX DroidDesktop Android app, which gives the user remote file management access, allowing them to download and upload files from their mobile device to their computer and vice versa. Stored files on the device can be previewed and the user can use the Delete, Create, Copy and Paste actions for files and folders. This is an excellent feature when administrators need to manage the user’s storage space on their devices as they can easily move or delete unnecessary files quickly without interrupting the user.Remote shell access allows the administrator to use commands to access the Android’s inner workings and is especially useful for developers as it allows them to fix devices remotely. Administrators can also view the device system logs keeping a close eye on what actions the device and applications are running, which is very useful for debugging or tracing the source of problems.

Conference Call Provider Releases New YouTube to Showcase their No VoIP Service

The ability to conference call is integral to many businesses, regardless of their size. Buzz Conferencing provides services for a variety of organisations, from small one person businesses to SMEs, charities, Government Departments, major corporations and churches. Although the company is based within the United Kingdom, Buzz Conferencing caters for clients throughout the world.

Buzz Conferencing’s global customer base is why they have launched their brand new promotional video on the world’s second biggest search engine – YouTube.com. “We are so excited to show everyone our new video” says Pete Bennet, CEO of Buzz Conferencing, “It was important to us that the video clearly explained what it is we do and what makes us unique to the many other audio conferencing providers out there. I think the final video showcases this really well.”

Their finished video is a stylish animation that explains to the viewer the benefits of audio conferencing, the downsides associated with some conference services, and how Buzz Conferencing avoids these pitfalls to make their high quality conference call service the most reliable. The key to their reliable service is that they don’t use the cheap VoIP lines that many other service providers do.

VoIP stands for Voice Over IP and works in a similar way to Skype. VoIP is where a voice is turned into data that is then sent across the globe via a public network on the Internet. “VoIP can be extremely unreliable – especially during busy periods when the world and her dog are trying to access the public network. VoIP causes a lot of frustration for businesses who are trying to communicate, so our calls are done differently.” Explains Pete.

Buzz Conferencing uses high quality telco-grade phone lines for all of their audio conferencing. They use the same equipment and telephone lines as the major telephone companies, which means that they can guarantee high line quality and industrial-strength reliability all year round, even at the busiest times. “The service we provide is fully supported and 100% professional – so much so that we’re trusted by Government Departments and large corporations.” says Pete.

As Buzz Conferencing’s YouTube video says, “Our high quality doesn’t mean high price”, as 95% of their current customers switched to their service to save money. “We offer a full free trial so that anyone can see for themselves how easy, reliable and professional our conference call service is.” says Pete.

Buzz Conferencing provides a wealth of features to support and enhance their audio conferencing service. They provide free secure recordings of conference calls, free powerful in-conference controls, free international access, free bespoke configuration and unlimited personal support. “Many of our customers come to us for our old fashioned approach to customer support.” explains Pete. “All of our support lines are based within the UK, so we won’t forward our customers calls halfway around the world before they can talk to the person they need. We offer free and unlimited telephone support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
