Adam Odessky, Orange Labs, will demo and talk about how cloud communications are a crucial component in the creation of next generation mobile enterprise mashups that boost productivity and improve collaboration among workers. We also delve into other topics such as augmented reality to better understand how the two mediums can work together in the enterprise.

Asterisk SCF is architected to provide the highest levels of availability, scalability, extensibility, fault-tolerance and performance.
