DENVER (PRWEB) July 27, 2005
P2P Networks, Inc., today announced it has completed a beta version of a true Peer-to-Peer (P2P) software application called OnobeeÂ that is used for Web, Video, and Teleconferencing collaboration and communications. The product is platform independent, and offers an Always-Up, Always-Available architecture that lends itself to the secure and private on-demand collaboration needs of business today, from simple Instant Messaging to full streaming voice and video and multimedia.
ÂOur product is a P2P application that offers superior functional performance when compared to the prevalent client-server architectures employed by existing market players,Â says Dr. Michael Jiang, a co-founder of P2P Networks and principal developer of the software. ÂThis also means that the cost of ownership of our product is a fraction of what the existing competition requires to operate their systems. It also offers Many-to-Many conferencing, which allows for each peer (desktop/person) in the conference to communicate with each other with every function we offer Â Full-Duplex Voice, Video, IM, Sharing, and Collaboration. All functions needed for effective interaction are integrated within one secure, private client application for convenience and to meet any on-demand need without reservations or time-consuming coordination.
ÂOur product is a robust business collaboration tool and is a cost-effective alternative to traditional Web-Conferencing, Teleconferencing, and travel. The application is fully functional, Java written, IETF compliant, and is SIP-enabled for future advanced voice integration capabilities,Â Dr. Jiang added.
Customers can escalate the level of communication from simple IM/Chat to full collaboration from within the same client at their demand. OnobeeÂ offers:
- Instant Text Messaging and Chat
- Real-time Video
- Real-time Full-Duplex Audio Â Many to Many
- Collaborative Web Browsing
- Desktop/Application Sharing
- Collaborative Document/Text editing
- Multi-Media Audio/Video Simulcasting
- Collaborative white-boarding/drawing
- Real-time File Sharing
- Real-time Picture Sharing

The Company said more businesses are discovering the potential of P2P business applications, most recently validated by Microsoft Corporation purchasing Groove Networks, a hybrid P2P business collaboration platform. The proven power of the P2P computing model has set the stage for rapid adoption of P2P collaboration computing within the enterprise. For most business, the fundamental infrastructure is already in place:
- Networked computers are ubiquitous.
- Affordable desktops now have enough processing power and storage capacity to handle P2P collaboration computing requirements, while still delivering excellent performance for traditional workloads.
- Most corporate/institutions networks have sufficient bandwidth to support the rapid movement of large amounts of data and rich media content, especially since P2P applications can help to optimize bandwidth allocation.
