damaka, a technology pioneer in Mobile Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) software, has demonstrated the world's first multiple sessions (presence, IM, Audio, video, application sharing) Sweeping™ (Device Handoff) between laptops and mobile devices. With this release, damaka further extends its leadership as an innovative technology provider in the Mobile UCC space.
As part of the Device Handoff solution, a user can seamlessly Sweep or transfer his/her media sessions - Presence, IM, Audio, Video, Application Sharing Sessions from a mobile device to a laptop (or vice versa) without dropping the ongoing active session. damaka's Sweeping technology is supported over both Bluetooth and IR connectivity between laptops and mobile devices.
"With Sweeping capability, damaka has taken the UCC space to next level by offering Multiple Session Continuity (MSC)," stated Siva Chaturvedi, damaka's CEO. "MSC functionality will add huge productivity gain for professionals who are on the move. A sales executive could instantaneously Sweep his or her active sessions (presence,
IM, audio, video, application sharing) from a mobile device to a laptop and vice versa. This ability allows the user to continue the active session without having to spend time on manual transfer of the active sessions between mobile device and laptop."
An example of a real life use case for Sweeping from Laptop to Mobile Device - John is travelling on a train from his home in New Jersey to New York City. He is working on his laptop and connected via 3G wireless broadband connection. He realizes that one of his client presentation slides needs additional information from his colleague Anita. John invites Anita for a click to collaborate session (application sharing along with audio on his laptop). As the train approaches Central Station in NYC, John leverages damaka's Sweeping technology to transfer his active sessions (voice and application sharing) from his laptop to his mobile device with click of a single button on his application. This way John is able to continue his collaboration sessions without dropping any sessions.
Another business scenario up take of this technology, Sweeping from Mobile Device to Laptop - Jane is a marketing director who is currently not in her office. But she is invited by her Manager to join an urgent conference call with application sharing session. Since Jane needs about 10 minutes to reach her office, she decides to take the collaboration session on her mobile device while she is walking towards her office. Upon reaching her office, Jane sweeps her presence, audio, and application sharing sessions to her laptop and continues with her meeting. With damaka Sweeping technology, Jane gets to contribute more to her project and help the entire project team to be more productive and efficient.
"We are very happy to achieve this technology milestone of real time Sweeping between mobile devices and laptops," stated Satish Gundabathula, damaka's CTO. "In the past 2-3 years many telecom and networking companies have announced their intentions to develop a seamless device handoff of presence and voice between laptops and mobile devices. I am excited to announce that we are the first company globally to achieve this important milestone by demonstrating Sweeping of presence, IM, audio, video and application sharing."
