Overview
Bottom rule

IBM® Lotus® Sametime® is IBM's award winning platform for unified communications and collaboration. It provides a core set of real-time communication services that make it easier to find, reach and collaborate with colleagues, customers, and business partners. These include:

  • Rich presence
  • Secure, enterprise class instant messaging
  • Online meetings with audio-conferencing and video- conferencing
  • Integrated Voice (VoIP) and high quality desktop video
  • Community collaboration, including Federation with Public Instant Messaging services
  • Mobile device integration
  • Optional one number phone service, softphone, and call management capabilities

Lotus Sametime delivers these services, as well as those from hundreds of Business Partners, through a unified user experience. Moving among text chats, video calls, and online meetings is seamless to the user and driven by what's most effective for the task at hand. Services can also be delivered through the applications that people use everyday - e-mail, productivity, enterprise and Web-based applications. In contrast to numerous isolated, unconnected collaboration technologies, Lotus Sametime's consistent, integrated collaboration experience promotes end-user adoption. This helps turn the long held promise of unified communications into a reality.

IBM Lotus Sametime 8.5 represents the next generation of unified communications and collaboration software. It incorporates:

  • A new online meeting experience that is integrated into the IBM Lotus Sametime Connect client. Join a meeting with a single click. Easily invite others by dragging their names from the contact list. Accept meeting invitations with a single click. Upload meeting materials via simple drag and drop.
  • New zero-download, browser-based chat and meeting clients that extend the desktop experience to wherever the user is working.
  • A new standards-based audio and video infrastructure that enables interoperability with third party audio and video conferencing systems.
  • New audio and video codecs that provide higher quality native voice and video services for a more compelling collaborative experience out-of-the-box.
  • New Web 2.0 APIs that let developers embed Sametime capabilities into Web sites and applications so users switch context less.
  • A new, browser-based Apple iPhone chat client, support for the Blackberry Storm, and an improved mobile client for Microsoft® Windows® Mobile devices.
  • New social views that make it easier to find the people you collaborate with the most.
  • A new System Console that centralizes infrastructure configuration, deployment, management, and policy management for all Sametime services.
  • New upgrade options if you have basic Sametime services from other IBM offerings.

To order, contact your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or the Americas Call Centers at: 800-IBM-CALL.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM Lotus Sametime makes it simple to find, reach and collaborate with colleagues, customers, and Business Partners with a full range of unified communications and collaboration capabilities.

  • Rich presence - online status, availability, automatic location awareness and available telephony status that makes it easy to quickly find the people you need.
  • Secure, enterprise class instant messaging that can reduce phone and voicemail costs while providing an unobtrusive way to engage with colleagues who are otherwise unavailable.
  • Online meetings with audio and video conferencing that help reduce travel and enable remote workers to fully engage with their colleagues.
  • Integrated Voice (VoIP) and high quality desktop video that deliver a more interactive collaborative experience and lower telephony costs.
  • Community collaboration that can save hours by making it possible to find and interact with experts in the organization you didn't even know, and keep in touch with customers, partners, family, and friends.
  • Mobile device support that gives you access to people and information even when you are on the road.
  • Out-of-the-box integration with Lotus, WebSphere®, and Microsoft products that quickly adds collaboration to the products people use most often, promoting adoption.
  • Open APIs and an extensible client that provides communications capabilities to the user wherever they work, improving productivity.
  • Optional one number phone service, softphone, and call management capabilities that deliver next generation voice capabilities through your existing telephony infrastructure.

While Lotus Sametime unifies the front end, it also protects your existing technology investments by supporting and integrating with multiple client and server operating systems, e-mail platforms, directories, telephony, audio conferencing, and video conferencing systems. It integrates out-of-the-box with WebSphere Portal, Lotus Notes®, Quickr™, Connections, Microsoft Office, Outlook, SharePoint, Active Directory as well any lightweight directory (LDAP). Through its standards-based frameworks, Lotus Sametime can be extended with your custom applications and helps enterprises easily create communications-enabled business processes.

In the marketplace for over 10 years, Lotus Sametime is a mature, proven, and highly scalable product with deployments ranging from 10s of users to several over 400,000. Lotus Sametime 8.5 represents the next generation of unified communications and collaboration software. It delivers an even more seamless user experience and is available through several, more flexible, licensing options.

What's new in Sametime 8.5

Effective online meetings - never lose the first ten minutes of a meeting to sharing meeting information again.

  • Meeting rooms are reservationless - they can be instantly created for a single meeting or kept and be reused. Of course, they can be scheduled through Lotus Notes or Microsoft Outlook calendars.
  • Persistent meeting rooms are available 24x7 and have their own file library. Users can create rooms devoted to specific projects and store the appropriate materials there.
  • The meeting experience is fully integrated into the Sametime Connect client. Users can create, find, and join meetings right from Connect Client.
  • A zero-download browser-based meeting experience is also available for meeting participants to view meeting content.
  • Invite others to meetings by dragging names from the Connect Client contact list and dropping them on the meeting room.
  • Accept meeting invitations in a single click - it's just like joining a group chat request.
  • Upload materials via simple drag and drop.
  • Standards-based meeting recording and playback.

Simplified audio and video takes the guess work out of multimedia collaboration

  • A single audio and video interface delivers both built-in and partner media capabilities.
  • Desktop video supports variable video window size, full screen mode, and resolutions up to high definition.
  • Audio/video is now based on the industry-standard Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), improving interoperability with third-party audio/video conferencing systems.
  • New administrative controls over the video experience (size, bitrate, and quality).
  • H.264 video and G.722.1 audio codecs provide higher quality multimedia experience at lower bandwidths.

New tools to presence and communication enable any Web 2.0 application. These make it easy to extend collaboration throughout your organization and improve productivity.

  • New Representational Sate Transfer (REST)-based Web 2.0 APIs allow the next generation of developers to use standard AJAX tools to embed a full range of Sametime capabilities into Web applications and portals.
  • A new customizable, zero-download browser-based chat client makes it easier to integrate the Sametime chat experience into your Web sites.

More effective instant messaging and mobility options.

  • A new customizable, zero-download browser-based chat client makes it easier to deploy Sametime to more people.
  • Two new views in the Connect Client - Frequent Contacts and Recent Contacts - puts the people you collaborate with most often at your fingertips.
  • An expanded Microsoft Outlook Toolbar makes it a more effective collaboration tool.
  • Rich text chat between Sametime communities over the Sametime gateway.
  • A new Apple iPhone optimized browser-client for instant messaging.
  • A new Windows mobile client for a more refined mobile experience.
  • Support for the Blackberry Storm.

Simplified management with the new Sametime system console.

  • Configure, setup, and test LDAP from a single location.
  • Facilitate deployment planning and installation of Sametime servers.
  • Central policy management for all Sametime services.

Multiple infrastructure enhancements that make Sametime more cost effective to operate

  • A new architecture delivers componentized services that can be flexibly combined, distributed, and clustered, as needed.
  • Meetings use HTTP and HTTPS to connect users, improving firewall friendliness.
  • Meetings include failover and clustering eliminating the need for the Sametime Enterprise Meetings Server.
  • Sametime Media Manager provides policy-based controls over the video experience (size, connection speed, and quality).
  • Audio/video is now based on the industry-standard Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), improving interoperability with third-party audio/video conferencing systems.
  • Sametime Proxy Server provides Web 2.0 APIs to simplify integration into Web applications.
  • Sametime System Console make Sametime easier to manage and administer.
  • Wider platform support: Lotus Domino® 8.5, Microsoft Windows 2008 (32-bit and 64-bit editions), 64-bit Linux® operating systems.

New and easier ways to license

  • Current customers of other IBM offerings that include basic Sametime services - including Lotus Notes - can take advantage of new upgrade options for more complete functionality.

Note that Sametime Entry provides online presence, basic text chat, and integration with Microsoft offerings. Online Meetings, Audio/Video, SDKs and Toolkits, Mobility, and browser clients require Sametime Standard.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

IBM strives to provide accessible solutions for customers with disabilities and where full compliancy is not met, customers are advised on workable alternatives, where possible, to meet their needs.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which this software product can be licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor technology (defined within the PVU table* by processor vendor, brand, type and model number). IBM continues to define a processor, for purposes of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. Each software product has a unique price per PVU. To determine the total cost of deploying an individual software product in a specific hardware environment, you must take the following steps:

  1. For each processor core in the hardware environment on which the software product is to be licensed, determine the PVU requirement based on its processor technology per the PVU table*.
  2. Add the PVU requirements for all processor cores in the hardware environment.
  3. Multiply the software product's price per PVU by the total number of PVUs required as determined in step 2 above.

PVU entitlements are specific to a software product and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another software product.

Unless you have deployed eligible sub-capacity products according to the sub-capacity* terms, you must obtain PVU Proof of Entitlements (PoEs) for the maximum number of activated** physical processor cores in the hardware environment made available to or managed by the software product. This is also referred to as full capacity licensing.

* For information regarding PVU and sub-capacity licensing, including the latest PVU table, visit

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

** Activated processor cores are physical processor cores that are available for use in a server. They include processor cores:

  • That are activated (available for use) when the server is shipped by the manufacturer
  • That are activated subsequently through activation codes purchased from the server manufacturer by the customer
  • Whose capacity can be limited by the customer through Virtualization technologies, Operating System commands and BIOS settings

Concurrent User

Concurrent User is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A Concurrent User is a shared user access to the program within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed only on one computer or one server. The total number of Concurrent Users simultaneously accessing the program at any moment in time may not exceed the highest number of Concurrent Users authorized by the Proof of Entitlement (PoE). You must have an entitlement for each Concurrent User simultaneously accessing the program or any program component in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Authorized User

Authorized User is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. An Authorized User is an individual (named or unnamed) within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed on one or more computers or servers and accessed by the number of users authorized by the Proof of Entitlement (PoE). You must have an entitlement for each Authorized User accessing the program or any program component in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Limited warranty applies

Yes

Warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Handbook for further information at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

For programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off CoD software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer

The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
