LogMeIn join.me goes enterprise


LogMeIn has announced an enterprise version of its join.me online meeting system.

join.me - the online meeting system from LogMeIn - has been aimed mainly at individuals and smaller organisations. Unlike some competing services, join.me offers unlimited audio over VoIP and - for pro subscribers - dial-in numbers around the world, including local access numbers in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.

The company has now moved to attract enterprise customers by adding features to help support larger teams.

These include single sign on support via ADFS integration and Active Directory Sync, individual and group policy and permission settings, simplified provisioning/de-provisioning, 100GB of Cubby-based cloud storage for sharing and storing recorded meetings and related files, integration with Microsoft Outlook, and "one-tap" simplicity for hosting audio conferences from a iPhone.

join.me is used by tens of millions of people, with more than one million first-time users each month, LogMeIn officials claimed.

"The viral adoption of join.me in businesses has led to larger and larger opportunities for us and new types of requirements from our rapidly growing customer base," said LogMe In vice president of collaboration products Lou Orfanos.

"With join.me, we're focused on delivering ongoing innovation designed for an era dominated by employee preference.

"join.me enterprise is an example of how we can help companies strike a balance between their business needs and the simplicity, speed and elegance that their employees crave."

join.me enterprise pricing starts at US$19 per user per month, paid annually.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
