Acano Announces Acano Manager

December 16, 2013

Now enterprises and service providers can scale deployments of collaboration infrastructure at lower cost

LONDON and NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Today Acano introduced Acano Manager, a platform for managing large deployments of Acano software and third party MCUs. With Acano software, audio, video and web callers join together in coSpaces, persistent virtual meeting rooms for collaboration. The Acano Manager has a single user interface that brings together Acano software management, call management, self-service scheduling, Cisco/Polycom MCU management, and multi-tenancy and billing on one integrated platform. With Acano Manager, enterprises and service providers have an unprecedented way to grow their collaboration networks while increasing control and improving the call experience.

Currently organizations must use management and analytics components from various vendors for complete collaboration infrastructure management. This makes it difficult to have a cohesive view of the network, putting a strain on call participants, operators and administrators that limits deployments and increases costs.

Acano Manager makes it simple to run large deployments of collaboration infrastructure at lower costs:

    --  Single point of management: Access call data records and reports, manage
        Acano software and 3rd party MCUs, and manage multi-tenancy all in one
        integrated package.
    --  Large volume call monitoring: Manage a very large number of calls using
        Acano Manager's one-page call dashboard, and proactively monitor issues
        such as network overloads and faulty equipment.
    --  Self-service scheduling: Call participants can schedule calls through
        Microsoft Outlook or a dedicated portal.
    --  Multiple MCU management: Manage Cisco and Polycom MCUs in addition to
        the Acano software from a single page. Receive alerts and trending data
        on port utilization.
    --  Multi-tenancy and billing: Automatically manage multiple customers and
        the data to bill them accurately. Service providers can lower costs and
        improve service levels for scalable offerings. Enterprises can provide
        departmental cost allocations and usage analysis.

Acano Manager is now shipping to select organizations, with General Availability in January. Contact ask@acano.com for more information.
