Italtel Launches "Collaboration At Work"

New solution uses Italtel products Embrace and NetMatch to enable easy and cost-effective enterprise communication based on an integrated architecture for interoperability using different technologies

Milan, April 14, 2014 - Italtel, a leading telecommunications company in Next Generation Networks, Value Added Services and global IP-IP communication, today launched a new product called Collaboration At Work aimed at solving interoperability challenges.

The new solution was unveiled by Italtel during 'The New Collaboration Age: beyond cost reduction for a smarter job', an event organized by Italtel and taking place at the new Unicredit Tower Hall in Milan. Speakers included Valentina Aprea, Council Member of Lombardy Region, Paolo Cederle, CEO of Unicredit Business Integrated Solutions, Stefano Pileri, Italtel CEO, Stefano Mainetti, Professor at Politecnico Milano, and Maurizio Tondi, Head of Market Development EMEA at Italtel.

"Unified Communication and Collaboration is a strategic lever for the growth of enterprise businesses," commented Stefano Pileri, CEO of Italtel. "We have designed and created the solution Collaboration At Work to leverage our key values and assets; the capacity to design and produce innovative products that integrate market solutions, solid partnerships with key technology leaders, certified engineers and our vast test plants for monitoring and testing of end-to-end network services. This solution and the products it is based on, which are experiencing growing success in the market, are the result of our capacity to be innovative and bring that innovation rapidly in field."

Collaboration At Work is designed to provide significant cost reduction while introducing interoperability among communication tools already present in enterprise and mobile access with no localization limits. Today companies aiming to achieve this have a multitude of different collaboration technologies at their disposal that are separated. Moreover, most companies are connected in an expensive and obsolete way to public networks. This solution integrates and fine-tunes the technologies in a best-of-breed logical way, adds new ones based on web technologies and innovates the way companies interconnect to public networks whilst allowing an overall cost reduction of about 50% for telecommunication services.

"Lombardy is one of the regions in Europe with the highest number of companies active in the ICT and Communication segments," said Valentina Aprea, Council Member of Lombardy Region for Education, Training and Labour. "In a particularly critical period for the ICT sector, it is fundamental to give specific attention to high tech companies that represent a real value for the Region and for Italy in order to support the sector through a joint action. For this reason we particularly appreciate that Italtel has concentrated its R&D labs in Lombardy. More specifically, we consider of the highest relevance the commitment of Italtel into supporting R&D activities and developing a new solution, like 'Collaboration At Work'".

Ease of use is a key feature of Collaboration At Work with the same user experience required to manage a video-communication as for a simple voice call due to the operating activities being extremely fast and easy. Each employee is identified by a single number, even though they can be reached at the same time on more than one device and can switch the call from one device to another. When several users are required to attend a remote video conference, the solution allows the use of different technologies and terminals, enabling material to be shared with all clients and on all terminals.

Collaboration At Work also offers important advantages to external stakeholder's ecosystems which can access real-time enterprise services via web browsers by using Italtel's Embrace product based on WebRTC technology. A supplier, for example, which needs to contact the purchase department of a company using Collaboration At Work can consult a personalized and dedicated telephone book and make a video-call through the browser. The solution can be fully integrated with enterprise Contact Center systems and supports BYOD management.

In today's always-on world, customer expectations have changed. Competitive differentiation is delivered through rapid software innovations, the ability to respond to issues quickly and by releasing high-quality code with minimal interruptions. DevOps isn't some far off goal; it's methodologies and practices are a response to this demand. The demand to go faster. The demand for more uptime. The demand to innovate. In this keynote, we will cover the Nutanix Developer Stack. Built from the foundation of software-defined infrastructure, Nutanix has rapidly expanded into full application lifecycle management across any infrastructure or cloud .Join us as we delve into how the Nutanix Developer Stack makes it easy to build hybrid cloud applications by weaving DBaaS, micro segmentation, event driven lifecycle operations, and both financial and cloud governance together into a single unified st...
"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Sold by Nutanix, Nutanix Mine with Veeam can be deployed in minutes and simplifies the full lifecycle of data backup operations, including on-going management, scaling and troubleshooting. The offering combines highly-efficient storage working in concert with Veeam Backup and Replication, helping customers achieve comprehensive data protection for all their workloads — virtual, physical and private cloud —to meet increasing business demands for uptime and productivity.
While the focus and objectives of IoT initiatives are many and diverse, they all share a few common attributes, and one of those is the network. Commonly, that network includes the Internet, over which there isn't any real control for performance and availability. Or is there? The current state of the art for Big Data analytics, as applied to network telemetry, offers new opportunities for improving and assuring operational integrity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Frey, Vice President of Strategic Alliances at Kentik, discussed tactics and tools to bridge the gap between IoT project teams and the network planning and operations functions that play a significant role in project success.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lavi, a Nutanix DevOps Solution Architect, explored the ways that Nutanix technologies empower teams to react faster than ever before and connect teams in ways that were either too complex or simply impossible with traditional infrastructures.
