CommuniGate Systems, the provider of carrier-class Internet Communications solutions, today announced the addition of CalDAV support to its industry leading Unified Communications platform. The CalDAV standard lets users share scheduling resources and calendar events to boost collaboration and productivity throughout the enterprise. As a standards-based solution, the CommuniGate Pro platform works across multiple Calendar standards, such as iCalendar, MAPI, WebCal, and now CalDAV for seamless interoperability of clients and organisational scheduling services.
With the new CalDAV support, Mac users especially can reap huge benefits of shared calendaring and scheduling, without having to rely upon Microsoft client or server products. CommuniGate Pro’s calendaring services enables colleagues to share calendaring resources regardless of their chosen operating system and client software – Microsoft Outlook in Exchange mode, Apple iCal, CommuniGate Pro Pronto!, and any other CalDAV client. As a result, Mac users can still communicate with those companies using Microsoft Outlook or other client products.
In addition, CommuniGate Pro provides network operators and ISPs with a new Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, particularly for the Mac Enterprise market. As a multi-tenant carrier grade platform, CommuniGate Pro drives additional revenue opportunities for ISPs by providing powerful calendaring applications to SMB customers with a wide choice of client technologies not found in other messaging servers.
