CommuniGate CalDAV support
CommuniGate Systems has added CalDAV support to its Unified Communications platform, enabling users to share scheduling resources and calendar events to boost collaboration as well as productivity. The standards-based software works across multiple Calendar standards -- such as iCalendar, MAPI, WebCal, and CalDAV -- for seamless interoperability of clients and organizational scheduling services, according to the company.
"With the new CalDAV support, Mac users especially can reap huge benefits of shared calendaring and scheduling, without having to rely upon Microsoft client or server products," CommuniGate said. "CommuniGate Pro's calendaring services enables colleagues to share calendaring resources regardless of their chosen operating system and client software – Microsoft Outlook in Exchange mode, Apple iCal, CommuniGate Pro Pronto!, and any other CalDAV client. As a result, Mac users can still communicate with those companies using Microsoft Outlook or other client products."
CommuniGate Pro also provides network operators and ISPs (Internet Service Providers) with new Software as a Service (SaaS) for the Mac enterprise market. As a mult-tenant carrier grade platform, CommuniGate Pro provides powerful calendaring applications to SMB customers with a wide choice of client technologies.
CommuniGate Pro's calendaring features are tightly unified with all other methods of communication - voice, video, email, presence, chat, and other groupware applications. Users gain access to a single identity and secure login for all internet communication methods, which simplifies communications and accessibility. CommuniGate Pro's Mobility Suite enables users to seamlessly access calendar, email, and other data from a computer or mobile device.
The Unified Communications platform significantly reduces administration requirements, as a single CommuniGate Pro server can do what often requires many servers and software packages to deliver Calendar, email, XMPP (Jabber), SIP (VoIP), WebMail and directory services, according to the company.
