Aculab Cloud Addresses Requirements of Meet.fm

January 08, 2013

Cloud telephony and media platform provider, Aculab (News - Alert) Cloud, has been chosen to address the requirements of Redwood City, California based Meet.fm.

Meet.fm is a cloud service that improves the efficiency of businesses by combining full-featured online file sharing, Web meetings and audio conferencing.

The company helps its customers to accomplish more in less time for less money, and was searching for the right type of cloud telephony and media platform provider that could meet all its requirements.

After evaluating other vendors in the market, Meet.fm decided on Aculab Cloud for its ability to handle conference rooms consisting of hundreds of delegates.

Aculab Cloud is an on-demand solution and boasts several call management capabilities such as playing prompts, DTMF detection and numerous call recording features.

Before selecting Aculab Cloud, Meet.fm was using another cloud telephony platform that was unable to deliver and failed to scale for handling large on-demand conferences.

Aculab Cloud helps Meet.fm to handle conferences that could have a combination of callers dialing in using phones or browser-based applications. This combination significantly reduces costs for Meet.fm.

“With Aculab's Cloud Platform, we are able to implement a scalable VoIP and phone conferencing system, leveraging SIP connectivity to reduce unnecessary PSTN resources in our conferences,” said Adrian Cesena, a lead engineer at Meet.fm and one of the cofounders of its parent company.

“Aculab provides flexibility and access to conference resources that is truly unmatched at this price point,” Cesena said.

Aculab presents world-class telephony resources on a range of cloud-, software- and hardware-based platforms to the global communications market. The company was in the news last year when C3 (News - Alert) deployed Aculab’s Prosody X media processing boards at Cambridge University.
