VOSS Provides UC Management to Italtel’s Collaboration at Work Solution

Monday February 23, 2015 – Richardson, TX – VOSS Solutions today unveiled that the VOSS-4-UC management platform has been selected to perform a fundamental role in Italtel’s Collaboration at Work solution. The VOSS-4-UC management platform is one of the key elements of Italtel’s solution, providing advanced provisioning and operations management from a single pane of glass.

Collaboration at Work is a UC&C integrated architecture that allows organizations to achieve a unified and ergonomic user experience providing the best interoperability between multi-vendor communication technologies, by means of Italtel Session Border Control, NetMatch-S. The first release allows Cisco and Microsoft devices to coexist seamlessly, with Presence status and other UC settings automatically transferring across the different UC environments. Adopting Collaboration at Work, enterprises can benefit of faster business processes, increased individual and group productivity, enhanced employees’ mobility, and optimized use of video communications and multi-media conferences, together with significant savings in telecommunications expenses towards the operators (thanks to SIP trunking).

Italtel is the first partner in the world to harness the power of the VOSS-4-UC management platform to enable the cohabitation of Microsoft and Cisco telephony equipment in a single environment. Without VOSS, configuration would have to be carried out on the Cisco environment, the Microsoft environment and the Italtel Netmatch-S, for each and every user. With VOSS, this administrative complexity is absorbed and reduced to a few key strokes in the VOSS central management interface.

Stefan Peters, Sales Director at VOSS, commented: “Increasingly, companies are selecting multi-vendor UC environments to benefit from best-of-breed technologies and preserve legacy investments while moving away from vendor lock-in. We are delighted to be supporting Italtel, who is a frontrunner in Microsoft / Cisco cohabitation.”

Camillo Ascione, head of Italtel System Integration Strategy & Marketing added: “The VOSS-4-UC management platform abstracts a huge amount of complexity from the underlying administration; it simplifies and centralizes the day-to-day operations of the Collaboration at Work solution, making MACDs quick, easy and error-free”.

VOSS will be co-exhibiting with Italtel at Mobile World Congress, 2-5 March 2015, Barcelona, on Booth 2J2 (Pavilion 2). To meet with VOSS at the event, please email enquiries@voss-solutions.com.

VOSS Extends UC Migration Solution to Support Full Lifecycle of a Migration Project

VOSS Extends UC Migration Solution to Support Full Lifecycle of a Migration Project

Comprehensive Solution Now Includes Multi-Vendor Discovery Functionality

RICHARDSON, Texas (Monday, September 8, 2014) – VOSS Solutions today announced that the company has extended the scope of its UC Migration Solution to support the complex and multi-faceted requirements of communications migration projects.

 

VOSS has taken the sophisticated ETL (extract, transform, and load) technology from the “big data” industry and successfully enhanced it to suit the unique demands of a UC migration process. The methodology used at VOSS is a DETVL (discover, extract, transform, validate, and load) approach that automatically and rapidly processes massive amounts of complex data, with very high rates of accuracy, through the following core phases:

 

  1. Discover & Design
    User and device data is mined and analyzed from a wide cross-section of multiple legacy system vendors and heterogeneous systems. A data audit is produced to enable the optimization of the data extraction and design of the transformation processes.
  2. Extract
    Deep data extraction of user, device and advanced IPT settings. Automated cleaning and normalization of the data; all from multiple data sources and data types.
  3. Transform
    Intelligent data transformation and enrichment of the collected data, using advanced business logic to configure rich UC services on a fully customized basis.
  4. Validate
    Web-based access to the data to authenticate it in real-time ahead of loading. Data validation can be performed by end-customer site champions, through secure access control.
  5. Load
    Automated, batch-based loading to the new UC network elements, ready for site cutover. Re sync of originally extracted data can be performed prior to cutover to eliminate data-currency issues.

 

At the heart of the VOSS UC Migration Solution is the MiGR8-2-UC product (rebranded from the VOSS On-boarding Toolset, OBT); a highly sophisticated product that harnesses a DETVL methodology, to discover, extract, transform, validate, and load large volumes of data, to automate a UC migration project, saving organizations both time and budget.

 

Rob Moore, VP Global Services at VOSS, commented; “We’re excited about this evolution to our migration capabilities, as it solves a problem that all of our customers face at some stage in the lifecycle of their UC environment”. He continued; “MiGR8-2-UC supports multiple migration scenarios, such as TDM PBX to IP-PBX, TDM PBX to UC, IP-PBX to UC, or UC to UC. And, it also supports the widest range of legacy vendor technologies, covering: Cisco, Avaya, Nortel, Alcatel, Siemens, Ericsson, NEC, Mitel, Lync, etc.”

 

A number of high profiles organizations have already used the VOSS UC Migration Solution, with impressive results. These companies include a leading bank in Australia, a large industrial corporation in the USA, UK-based and US-based financial institutions, and many of the world’s leading telcos who are adopting VOSS’ big data approach for mass migrations to the cloud.

UK Government CTO Liam Maxwell and Microsoft’s Adrienne Hall join IP EXPO Europe’s outstanding speaker line-up

Print

IP EXPO Europe, Europe’s leading cloud and IT infrastructure event, today announces that government CTO Liam Maxwell and Microsoft’s general manager in Trustworthy Computing, Adrienne Hall will be keynote speakers at the event on 8th-9th October this year. Maxwell will speak at IP EXPO Europe’s keynote theatre, whilst Hall will present at Cyber Security EXPO’s keynote theatre.

Since his appointment in 2012, Liam Maxwell has become known for reforming IT management and protocols throughout government, challenging existing norms and ever looking towards future trends in industry. Offering a unique perspective on public sector IT issues and addressing key concerns regarding public services in the cloud, Liam is set to deliver an energising and enlightening talk at IP EXPO Europe for professionals across the IT spectrum.

Maxwell’s speech is expected to examine how the UK Government can build world-class digital services, saving time and money and stimulating a generation of world-beating British software and service businesses that can save billions for the taxpayer – provided that services are based on user needs. Underpinning Government work is a belief in openness everywhere – commitment to open standards and sharing work, methods, code and data. Being open levels the playing field so that all sorts of technologies and all sorts of suppliers can work with government.

Adrienne Hall is a general manager in Microsoft’s Trustworthy Computing group. She is a Cloud Security Alliance board member as well as a founding member of the Executive Women’s Forum for Security, Privacy and Risk Management Professionals. Tapping into her experience on how the cloud is shifting the way businesses think about IT, from reducing operational costs to freeing up resources in order to focus on innovation in a mobile-first, cloud-first world, Adrienne will offer unique insights at this year’s Cyber Security EXPO for any forward-thinking senior information security professionals and IT managers. She will also share Microsoft’s approach to providing secure and private cloud services in a world where trust is continually challenged.

Both of these speakers add to the already impressive line-up of speakers for the two day event, which includes inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, creator of Hadoop, Doug Cutting and security and privacy guru, Bruce Schneier.

Liam Maxwell will speak at the IP EXPO Europe keynote theatre on 8th October at 1pm. Adrienne Hall will speak at the Cyber Security EXPO keynote theatre, also on 8th October, at 16:20pm.

Cyber Security EXPO, part of IP EXPO Europe, is calling for contributors to the Cyber Hack, a live open source security lab arriving at the show this October.

The Hack area allows for true industry collaboration, giving you the opportunity to demonstrate hacks in real time and explain to audiences how to beat them. We’ll also have some of the best defence and security minds present for you to challenge.

Cyber security is arguably the biggest issue facing today’s IT industry – every week we hear about a new threat or compromise and the aftermath of damaging cyber-attacks that have left organisations – and often their customers too – vulnerable and exposed. For this reason, Cyber Security EXPO has developed a place for White Hat hackers, security gurus and industry professionals to come together to share ideas and showcase hacks in real time.

Whether it’s a hack demonstration, a new vulnerability, research findings or just something you want to get off your chest, fill out the Call for Hacks submission form here before 31st July and join this exciting new show experience.
