The media processing functions are handled on the host CPU, increasing performance while lowering overall system costs. Pronexus’ VBVoice further facilitates the development of VoIP applications by seamlessly supporting HMP software from Intel in a visual call flow environment integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.

“The combination of Intel® NetStructure™ Host Media Processing (HMP) and VBVoice accelerates the development of sophisticated VoIP applications, allowing users to quickly experience the benefits of software-only IP telephony with all of the features and performance expected of DSP-based solutions,” said Jim Machi, director of marketing, Modular Communications Building Block Division, Intel. “By using standards-based building blocks from Intel in their platform, solution providers will be able to deliver flexible, scalable solutions to the marketplace.”

Cayman Enterprise City Reaches Out to Caymans Next Generation of Innovators


(PRWEB) July 22, 2013

Cayman Enterprise City (CEC), Caymans hi tech Special Economic Zone has rewarded the two young winners of The Coolest Internship in Cayman video contest with summer internships in the zone. During the month of June contestants in the Cayman Islands between the ages of 15 and 25 were asked to submit a short video making their case for the chance to work in the zone where 65 companies are now operating international businesses. 20-year-old Neith Rheingold, a second year student at the University of Westminster in London, convinced the judges that the internship is tailor-made for him.

Im hardworking, motivated and I really want the opportunity to work at CEC because it fits right into my career choices, business management and international business, says the young Caymanian. I can learn a lot from the people at Cayman Enterprise City - get good advice, gain knowledge and do some networking. I hope to take this knowledge back to school with me.

Cayman Enterprise City CEO Charlie Kirkconnell says the video contest was a good way to engage Caymans younger generation with the high tech tools they use on a daily basis, and get them thinking about the growing opportunities CEC will offer in the coming years. We have made a commitment to improve the future of young Caymanians by attracting interesting new technology-based industries to these islands, he says. The enthusiasm and creativity shown through the video contest is very exciting and encouraging, it shows us that our kids want to be involved.

16-year-old Thalia Ramos, a local high school student, also won an internship with a creative video that included animation and music. Neith and Thalia will learn the inner workings of the special economic zone by shadowing CECs teams from various departments; marketing, business development and client services. Theyll learn how to market the Cayman Islands internationally, work on lead generation projects and plan overseas business development trips and more. The interns will also be involved in Skype calls with potential clients around the world and participate in online presentations, plus face-to-face meetings. Im very excited, says Neith Rheingold. Im pretty sure Im gonna love it and will want to come back next summer.

The interns will also learn about the logistics involved in helping a company set up in the zone, from the licensing process to the relocation of employees. Clients need assistance with local health insurance, pension plans, banking, service providers, accommodation, cars, shipping, movers and more. Neith and Thalia will also meet with some of the zone companies to learn about their businesses and industries, and experience first hand the growing tech hub at CEC.

I hope to contribute my ideas to the conversation because I want to be a part of whats going on there, says Neith. I think CEC is a great organization and they are going to do a lot of great things for Cayman. Hopefully when I graduate there will be an opportunity for me at CEC.

We want the young people to come away from the experience with a good understanding of the zone, how it works, how it is marketed and sold internationally and to see whether these are industries they may wish to work in, in the future, says Charlie Kirkconnell, also understanding that he and the other Caymanians at CEC are important role models for the next generation.

Employee Mobility Creates Success in the Enterprise: Appointment-Plus Responds to CDW Survey that Shows Increased Tablet Usage in the Workplace


Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) August 12, 2013

According to a June 23rd Computerworld article that summarized surveyed stats from technology provider CDW, 84 percent of employee respondents said tablets make them better multi-taskers at work.

And this helps them gain just over one hour in daily productivity.

When multiplied by the large number of workers enterprise-size companies typically employ, this increase in productivity time is dramatic. For example, many larger organizations that utilize Appointment-Plus enterprise scheduling software save tens of thousands of work hours each week.

Tablets let employees perform their tasks more efficiently, as they can access work-related applications on the go, said Stephen Booze, CIO of Appointment-Plus. People tend to be more productive when theyre not tied down to a single computer.

Tablets give them flexible options for managing and completing their job duties.

Among the tasks that large organizations such as automotive dealerships and service-based franchises can easily manage with tablets are customer appointments. Online scheduling software lets staff instantly view their calendars and book appointments in seconds.

Here are three reasons why enterprise scheduling software is the perfect fit with iPads and Android tablets.

Cayman Enterprise City Offers Young Entrepreneurs Easy Solution to U.S. H-1B Visa Troubles


George Town, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (PRWEB) June 30, 2013

Innovators facing difficulties with launching start-ups or growing existing tech companies in Silicon Valley, or elsewhere in the U.S. because of H-1B visa caps and restrictions, will find a much easier path to entrepreneurship in Caymans high tech special economic zone, Cayman Enterprise City. H-1B visas allow American employers to import foreign workers each year to fill jobs that require "highly specialized knowledge," but these visas are notoriously restrictive and capped at 65,000. This year more than 124,000 visa applications were filed, so a lottery system was implemented and the work permits were gone in a week. Entrepreneurs who struggle through the process and are not picked for a visa have to leave the U.S.

Innovators are welcomed in the Cayman Islands, says Charlie Kirkconnell, CEO of Cayman Enterprise City. They wont encounter any visa difficulties when establishing in Cayman Enterprise City, and entrepreneurs can have their startup operating and their staff on site and working within 10 days.

Concessions granted by the Cayman Islands government fast track licensing and work permits, so entrepreneurs can quickly and efficiently set up a new business with a genuine physical presence in the Cayman Islands, where they can take advantage of the jurisdictions tax neutral status.
