Alcatel-Lucent OpenTouch 2.0

Alcatel-Lucent made a number of updates to its OpenTouch unified communications suite, including the launch of OpenTouch 2.0 and OpenTouch Personal Cloud, a cloud-hosted overlay that lets users pick and choose from a collection of communications apps and deploy them on an as-needed, per-user basis.

Out of the gate, Alcatel-Lucent is offering three OpenTouch Personal Cloud apps: OpenTouch Conference for audioconferencing; OpenTouch Video Store for creating and sharing video content; and OpenTouch Team Share for file sharing. All three applications are accessible via Web browsers on PCs or Macs, or through dedicated mobile apps.
