Unified Communications Week in Review: The Louvre-Lens Museum, Methanex, VirnetX, Symphony
From Methanol to Museums, the benefits of a good Unified Communications platform are lost on no industry. This week we saw some stellar applications of UC, some upgrades, and more. Let’s run through with our week in review.
One of the first stories that broke this week was about Internet security software developer VirnetX Holding Corporation, which announced that it will be offering its Gabriel Collaboration Suite as a public download. Some of the tools included in the Gabriel Suite are Secure Mail, Secure Messaging, Secure Voice Call, Secure Video Call, and Secure Share & Sync—all of which will operate on Windows, Mac, and Linux desktops and Android-based mobile handsets.

Next, TMC’s Joe Rizzo took a closer look at a story that’s been quietly unfolding for nearly twenty years in the Bloomberg offices. Today, the company’s terminals are considered to be the industry standard in terms of secure, instant messaging. But after being caught spying on several massive financial firms, Bloomberg’s terminals have lost some of their credibility, and are at risk of being replaced by the new big player in the industry: Symphony.

On to Museums—more specifically, the Louvre-Lens Museum in Lens, Pas-de-Calais—one of France’s poorest regions—which now has a fully integrated communication solution. Using Mitel’s communication technology, the museum hopes to completely revamp the visitor experience, and improve current methods for sharing information between employees. TMC’s Michael Guta has the report.
Last but not least, TMC’s Maurice Nagle took a look at how the world’s largest supplier and producer of Methanol is using UC to “fuel” business collaboration with the help of BT and its Connect portfolio. Get all the details in the full story.
And that’s a wrap! Keep coming back early and often for all the news that matters in the world of Unified Communications. And have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.
