February 28, 2011

NEC Corporation, a dealer in the integration of IT and network technologies, announced that it is demonstrating a new type of Unified Communications & Collaboration (UC&C) software architecture designed for IT and rich internet applications at the Enterprise Connect exhibition in Orlando, Florida.

NEC is showcasing a virtualized platform that utilizes the latest in Rich Internet Applications (RIA) to uniquely align with changing enterprise needs. It brings together Web and IT architectures to realign the methods that enterprises use to offer collaborative experiences to their clients and workers.

The company’s new UC&C RIA client framework supposedly works across any device, whether on PC, a mobile or a tablet, and it is built on the latest in RIA Flash-based technology and makes use of an integral Java application framework.

At the exhibition, NEC asserted that it will be showcasing its UC&C architecture’s user centric nature and how developers collaborating on projects can all employ common tools, collaborating with one another to create greater efficiencies in their businesses.

Officials with the company exclaimed that market trends are driving demand for UC&C solutions founded on flexible software architectures that fit more naturally into enterprise IT architectures.

The new products unveiled by NEC are part of its UNIVERGE IP architecture that unifies multimedia networks. This architecture is stated to have been contributing to the improvement of NEC clients' intellectual productivity by integrating voice and data networks while creating the optimal mobile environment with systems designed for specific businesses and industries. For NEC customers UC&C will enhance the values of their existing telephony assets.

Jay Krauser, director of product marketing of Enterprise Technologies at NEC Corporation of America, added that this same core software technology has received accreditations from the U.S. Department of Defense Joint Interoperability Command (JITC) PBX. This represents some of the most stringent testing for security, resiliency and interoperability for communications platforms.
