Dear Customers and Partners of Open-Xchange,

Open-Xchange is pleased to announce the product release of OX Messenger. OX Messenger is a real time text, voice and video communication application that fully integrates into OX App Suite. OX Messenger can optionally connect to existing third-party telephony options such as VoIP, PBX, PSTN termination etc.

OX Messenger is based on latest web-standards such as WebRTC, HTML 5 and Websockets. This provides a single responsive user interface that automatically optimizes itself for the users desktops. OX Messenger also works with industry standard protocols such as SSL, XMPP, SIP and RTP to enhance OX App Suite core applications with advanced real-time communication capabilities.

OX Messenger is built to provide maximum performance, resilience and horizontal scalability. OX Messenger uses a new JAIN SLEE based XMPP Server that provides outstanding performance. The OX Messenger Gateway creates and enables communication between parties, but when possible it hands off the communication to a peer-to-peer protocol. This maximizes performance, reduces latency and increases both quality and privacy.
