Here’s an excerpt:
One of the things that makes Novell Teaming + Conferencing such a powerful solution is the tight integration between its teaming and conferencing components. In the last article in this series, Novell Connection took a deep dive into Novell Teaming. This article digs deep into the conferencing features that supplement critical teaming capabilities in Novell Teaming + Conferencing.
Conferencing lets users set up and participate in online meetings where they can share presentations, documents, desktops and applications; communicate real-time via Instant Messaging (IM) and chat sessions; and also share whiteboards to sketch out ideas and review copy. With the assistance of a signal processing board from NMS Communications, users can also use the conferencing component’s built-in soft phone to hold VoIP conversations during a meeting. And with the addition of the ICEing Telephony module from SiteScape (now a part of Novell, Inc.), users can also call in to meetings from their telephone handsets. When all of these features are enabled, users have three choices for creating online meetings: data only, voice only, or voice and data together.
