Pronto unified comm client
CommuniGate Systems has launched Pronto! 2.2, the latest version if its unified communications user interface framework. Pronto! is built with Adobe Flex 3, deployed in the browser with Adobe Flash Player, and to the desktop with Adobe AIR. Pronto offers a framework to deliver value added services for rich media communications and advanced collaboration for unified communications in the software as a service model.
Pronto unifies all forms of communication with a framework that allows for expansion or new applications to be added as modules. This version lets carriers add modular services such as videomail, IPTV, or Video on Demand to subscribers, while delivering full mobile unified communications for small or medium sized businesses. Modular services include e-mail, VoIP, presence, instant messaging, rich media with HD video and audio with synchronization to the iPhone 3G and other smart phones that support AirSync. CommuniGate claims their "Dynamic Clustering" architecture provides 99.999% uptime with no single point of failure and allows SaaS providers to add front-end or back-end nodes without any service interruption.
