NextPlane, Inc. is known for its quality messaging and directory server software, so it comes as no surprise that it’s releasing support for the Isode M-Link. Thanks to NextPlane’s support, M-Link customers can communicate with users of Lync, OCS and Sametime, accessing federation tools that span devices and applications.
Isode M-Link is used to provide highly secure messaging, approved by the United States Defense Information Systems Agency (News - Alert) and used in military government enterprises. Thanks to NextPlane, its customers can now instant message, chat and exchange presence with colleagues using Lync, Sametime or OCS, including creating chats with multiple people on different devices.
This is possible thanks to the NextPlane Federation Cloud services, letting them communicate in real time on SIP-based UC platforms.
Of course there are risks when collaborating between devices, but that’s taken care of too. With NextPlane as a central federation exchange, M-Link’s users can use the TLS over XMPP encryption to reach out farther without losing any security. In other words, it has now enabled communication with more devices and no new security risks.
According to Isode’s VP of Marketing, Will Sheward: "Support for NextPlane's Federation Cloud Service gives M-Link customers secure access to a larger federated community, making it easier for our government and military customers to communicate with other departments, plus vendors and partners in the private sector. With tightening budgets and increased demands on government agencies to increase efficiency, federation with other UC platforms to form real-time, collaborative communities is more important than ever to streamline communications and operations."
NextPlane is known for providing cloud-based federation services for unified communications. With its cloud services, subscribers can fully control the types of traffic allowed across any of their partners, whether it’s IM, voice, video or anything else, while also providing insight into how the collaboration is helping them, thanks to its analytics and reporting tools.
The support NextPlane provides to M-Link will prove a great benefit for the company and its customers, who need their data secure and their messaging more than instant.
