Aculab Cloud Helps Meet.fm's Audio Conferencing Shine
Jan 08, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Located in Redwood City, California, Meet.fm is the first cloud service to combine full-featured online file sharing, web meetings and audio conferencing to help customers accomplish more in less time for less money. Their 'all-in-in-one suite solution' helps customers manage events and home projects, and meet online with confidence and ease, whilst keeping everyone organised.
The online meeting feature, offered as part of its collaboration suite, plays a leading role for Meet.fm. Its main objective is to make it quick and easy for customers to set up on-demand meetings, of any size - to share ideas.
Having initially used other cloud telephony platforms, it was apparent to Meet.fm, almost from day one, that the capacity offered to them was not sufficient and that an alternative, which could scale to handle large on-demand conferences with a capacity of greater than 40 participants, was required.
Having reviewed a number of alternatives, Meet.fm felt that Aculab Cloud was the only cloud telephony and media platform provider that could meet all its requirements. Aculab Cloud can handle conference rooms consisting of 100s of delegates, on-demand and has feature rich call management capabilities - playing prompts, DTMF detection, call recording, mute, PIN codes, and much more.
In addition, Aculab Cloud can provide PSTN or SIP connectivity or a combination of both. For Meet.fm, that meant they could handle conferences that could have a mix of callers dialing in using phones or browser-based applications, freeing up the audio stream for something other than a PSTN call, cutting costs significantly.
Adrian Cesena Jr. said, "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." Adrian continued, "Aculab provides flexibility and access to conference resources that is truly unmatched at this price point."
The international PSTN integration was also a huge reason Meet.fm chose Aculab. "Our previous solution was US only, and we now have PSTN in Canada, Australia, UK, and US, with any other region pretty much at our disposal." Cesena Jr. added.
David Samuel, Aculab's Global Sales and Marketing Director, commented, "We have put a lot of development time into our conferencing capabilities, to make sure it can accommodate a range of business and information sharing scenarios - small online conferences, large lectures, scheduled or on-demand, SIP/PSTN or mixed audio." David added, "Audio conferencing has a big role to play in a range of unified communication and collaboration products and we are very excited about its inclusion into the Meet.fm product suite".
