Oracle recently announced the release of Oracle Communications Unified Communications Suite 7 Update 1 at Oracle Open World in San Francisco. Oracle Communications Unified Communications Suite (formerly Sun Java System Communications Suite) is a carrier-grade, highly scalable, secure, and reliable messaging and collaboration platform. It enables service providers to quickly bring to market a full-featured communication platform—one that takes advantage of existing and emerging standards, includes innovations in message management, and better enables cost-effective communication.
Newspapers looking to enhance communications with their customers and draw more readers to their advertisers are using a new Internet-based calendar communications network as a solution to event publishing and information sharing. dotCal.com (dotCal) is working with many community newspapers to enhance marketing and communication strategies for local meetings, restaurant openings, special events, and other time-sensitive information.
CalConnect is expanding the Member News service on our blog. The addition is a Member Focus service—a short introduction on the blog to a specific CalConnect member. It will include links to more information about the member, and possibly a significant press release or set of releases about a topic of interest to our members.
The CalDAV contribution by Sun Microsystems (now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oracle) is now integrated in Symbian^3. This means that any manufacturer releasing a handset based on the current and any upcoming Symbian version will be able to make use of this great addition to the platform.
CalConnect has accepted the offer of Kerio Technologies to host its twenty-second Roundtable and Interoperability Test Event. CalConnect XVII will be held in the Autumn of 2011 (late September or early October) at Kerio Technologies, in Plzen, Czech Republic. This will be the first full CalConnect Week to be held outside of North America, although CalConnect has held a Mobile Calendaring Interoperability Test Event and two Meet CalConnect introductory events in Europe in the past two years.
Sun has posted an update on their CalDAV client plug-in for the Symbian Operating system on the Symbian blog. See http://blog.symbian.org/2009/10/22/caldav-support-for-symbian-a-contribution-by-sun-microsystems/ for the full text.
