Lexington, KY--April 23, 1997--DataBeam (Lexington, KY) and Lucent Technologies (Murray Hill, NJ) announced that Lucent will be shipping its new MultiMedia Communications eXchange (MMCX) Server with data communications capabilities based on DataBeam's T.120 technology.
DataBeam's Collaborative Computing Toolkit Series enables Lucent's MMCX Server for T.120-based application sharing, whiteboarding, and file transfer. DataBeam's Collaborative Computing Toolkit provides third-party developers with building blocks for adding real-time multipoint, data sharing capabilities to new or existing applications, based on the T.120 standard. The standard is an International Telecommunications Union (ITU) recommendation that provides protocols for interoperable, multipoint data communications products and services. The building blocks contain C++ code, C-level application programming interfaces, and supporting utilities and documentation.
Lucent's MMCX system extends telephony calling features to mixed media conferencing sessions over local and wide area corporate networks. With the MMCX, users can take advantage of familiar office telephone features-such as conferencing, or transferring calls to another extension on mixed media calls involving any combination of voice, data, and video. The server works with existing private voice and data networks, enabling customers to conveniently add mixed media communications to their networks. The MMCX supports Unix, Windows 95, and Windows NT clients.
The T.120 series of standards for multipoint communications enables interactive data sharing and transfer among videoconferencing users worldwide. T.120 provides an infrastructure that allows conferencing products from multiple vendors to seamlessly communicate.
