NGINX Plus Now Certified for Alcatel-Lucent OpenTouch Unified Communication Solution

High Performance Reverse Proxy Solution provides cost and flexibility advantages for on premise and cloud based OpenTouch deployments

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nginx Inc., the high performance web acceleration company today announced that its flagship, commercially supported product NGINX Plus has been certified to operate as a Reverse Proxy with the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise OpenTouch Suite for Mid-sized and Large Enterprises –  flagship Unified Communication Solution Platform.

NGINX Plus is the ideal low-TCO Reverse Proxy element that enables mobile workforce and home workers to benefit from the OpenTouch Suite capabilities such as one-tap access to enterprise phone directory, user presence, notifications, web conferences and multi-device routing and switching wherever they are. OpenTouch Conversation PC and My IC Mobile Android software clients connect to NGINX Plus, get authenticated and get routed to the OpenTouch servers on premise or in a cloud. NGINX Plus also secures guests accessing OpenTouch Conversation from the OpenTouch Conversation for Web browser-based application. NGINX Plus provides significant advantages for businesses when deployed as part of the OpenTouch Suite such as reduced infrastructure cost, enhanced quality of service (QoS) and flexibility to work in both on premise or cloud based deployments. Additionally advanced routing, security and high availability features enhance deployments and facilitate collaboration and user centric multimedia capabilities found on the OpenTouch communication platform.

"NGINX Plus provides outstanding scalability and security for an enterprise class solution, delivering the benefits of Unified Communications to enterprises of all sizes," said Michael See, CTO, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise.

Nginx Plus can easily manage thousands of connected clients and can scale seamlessly to match unpredictable levels of demand and bandwidth requirements driven by multimedia applications and always-on mobile clients and devices. As needs grow, NGINX Plus grows as well without constraints to the infrastructure. Security is also first in mind with class leading redirection and security policies that keep homeworker and client devices secure when accessing OpenTouch servers in the trusted zone. Users can be authenticated by NGINX Plus using Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise OpenTouch authentication web service to get through the firewall.

As a Reverse Proxy NGINX Plus provides advanced load balancing capabilities with support for round robin, least connected and IP hash algorithms and continuously monitors the health of upstream servers. Real-time activity monitoring provides key load and performance metrics and can be connected to dashboards and third party monitoring tools using a simple RESTful JSON Interface. NGINX Plus also can be configured for High Availability with active standby, live binary upgrades and graceful restart with nonstop request processing.

"We're excited to be working with Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise as part of its Application Partner Program," said Paul Oh, Head of Business Development for Nginx. "The AAPP ensures that customers receive a solution that's been fully tested and verified by both companies and the assurance that they can receive the highest quality service and support as new capabilities are added."

When compared to other Reverse Proxy solutions, NGINX Plus offers a clear and compelling TCO advantage. NGINX Plus provides an easy to configure and manage software solution that can be deployed in the existing network or in a cloud based virtual machine. Most enterprise-focused solutions provide costly and inflexible dedicated hardware and drive customers though an expensive upgrade path with enforced bandwidth limitations. NGINX Plus has no built-in performance limits, which maximizes customer service levels while keeping infrastructure cost at a minimum.

NGINX Plus is available today for Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise OpenTouch Suite for Mid-sized and Large Enterprises. Learn more about NGINX Plus by visiting: http://nginx.com/products/.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings.

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
