MyNORA Can Help You Converge


Dallas, TX-based IPcelerate Inc. recently joined developers of video, voice and data applications addressing the booming industry need for next generation services and products. The company just made its official launch by releasing its key product MyNORA 3.0, an accelerated communications application designed to provide streaming video, voice and data to the desktop.

The company was established in fall 2004, developing integrated VoIP (define - news - alert)/IP telephony applications and solutions that converge with a new or existing telecommunications infrastructure to accelerate the ROI for new and existing IP investments, and resolve business critical issues. IPcelerate is comprised of top telecom veterans, Kevin Brown, president and CEO, and Alok Jain, CTO and VP engineering.

IPcelerate's MyNORA 3.0 is a software application running on individual desktop and laptop computers that support a myriad of IP-based desktop sessions, including voice, video, collaboration, XML-data dipping, web browsing, voice messaging, and instant messaging—all from a single desktop interface. MyNORA lets end users place calls (voice and video) across the company IP network or the Internet, collaborate, and securely message with other users.

MyNORA also supports a built-in, virtual interactive help-entity called Nora. Nora appears on the screen in a “bubblet” to assist the user in the various functions. The Nora dashboard entity is easy to use, and requires little instruction to engage.

"MyNORA continues to be the least expensive, most functional means to introduce convergence to the desktop," said Kevin Brown, president and CEO for IPcelerate. "It allows companies to recognize the benefits of VoIP and IP-based video and collaboration, all without replacing or changing their corporate PBX. It's an ideal and cost effective solution for companies who are looking to minimize their risk as they consider how and when to migrate to VoIP."

MyNORA 3.0 features include:

  • Media Player
  • Voice Activation
  • Data-Collaboration and Application Sharing
  • Caller Identification to create individual voice greetings based on who is calling
  • XML Services
  • Session Logs
  • Outlook Integration
  • VPN auto-detection
