ASC and CA Cheuvreux Announce Successful Implementation of Global Recording Solution

Flexible System Handles Diverse Media in Alcatel-Lucent Environment

Hoesbach/Germany, February 22, 2013 - ASC telecom AG (www.asctelecom.com), a leading global provider of innovative solutions to record, analyze and evaluate communications, and Credit Agricole Cheuvreux (CA Cheuvreux), the leading independent European equity broker, today announced the successful implementation of a communications recording solution to handle diverse media in an Alcatel-Lucent communications environment. The system provides central management at CA Cheuvreux's Paris headquarters with 15 global subsidiaries.

ASC's MARATHON EVOLUTION for DR Link and EVOip for IP DR Link integrate and record TDM and IP phones, SIP and GSM devices, and trading turrets in a system with high business continuity and disaster recovery for all components and architecture. In a system compatible with Alcatel-Lucent's OmniPCX Enterprise Communication Server, ASC provides active and passive VoIP recording, including encrypted calls, for up to 280 concurrent channels per server.

Dr. Frank Schaffrath, CEO of ASC, said, "Our implementation for CA Cheuvreux represents an amazing example of our ability, in tandem with Alcatel-Lucent, to centralize communications recording for a diverse global organization, achieving increased efficiency and cost savings as a result. Even more important, the system's scalable and fail-safe architecture makes it ideal for financial institutions requiring both high business continuity and the ability to accommodate change."

Schaffrath continued by listing additional capabilities of the CA Cheuvreux solution. A software-based system without any proprietary hardware, it provides recording control and retrieving information directly on the Alcatel-Lucent phone display. The capture of call index data such as phone numbers or call direction is enabled through CTI integration. And the solution is compatible with the Alcatel-Lucent DR (dedicated recording) link, a secure interface to support voice recording.

CA Cheuvreux's new system takes up less space on its trading floor, merges different recording systems and increases employee mobility. It allows adaptation to changing technical demands while simultaneously reducing telephone and videoconferencing costs.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
