Exchange Hosting for April, 2008

DES MOINES, Iowa, April 30, 2008 — LightEdge Solutions, a leading provider of managed Voice, Data and IT business services, today announced the availability of VoIP telephony service using managed Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) access. Through this managed connection, voice and data are carried over a QoS-enabled private IP network that is monitored and controlled end-to-end by LightEdge Solutions’ network operations staff. Previously, only businesses that could afford T1 lines could obtain that type of service and superior voice quality. The entire LightEdge product portfolio is now deliverable over managed DSL, which includes managed backup, Hosted Exchange and Wan IP. This achievement marks a major milestone for the company and for the industry as a whole as more emphasis is being placed on providing cost-effective managed services for small and medium-sized businesses.

The managed solution reduces the cost of traditional phone service by integrating voice and data services into a single DSL connection and providing multiple call functionality without dedicated analog phone lines. Depending upon the customer premise equipment selected, the LightEdge VoDSL solution can simultaneously support up to seventeen voice calls and transport data over each DSL line. The service is ideal for companies with up to forty employees at single location, or multiple locations when used with the LightEdge WAN IP product.

“The launch of this product is really pivotal for our business right now. We’ve been searching for ways to take our managed Voice-over-IP services and make it available for the masses,” said Jim Masterson, chairman and CEO of LightEdge Solutions. “By managing the DSL loop from end to end we can give small and medium-sized businesses access to a level of service and scalability that is just not available through another VoIP provider.”

LightEdge will offer the VoDSL services in several speeds with a maximum bandwidth of 7 Mbps. Customer location will determine eligibility and speeds available for the service. VoDSL will initially be offered in Minneapolis, Des Moines and Omaha, with additional markets available in the near future.

Update: iPhone 2.0 now supported. Read about it here

Exchange My Mail, a leading hosting provider of Microsoft Exchange Server, has announced that it
will fully support the upcoming iPhone 2.0 wireless synchronization with its Hosted Microsoft
Exchange Service.

Albertson, NY, March 11, 2008 — On March 6th, Apple announced that it will begin to offer enterprise support for the iPhone in the upcoming 2.0 release in June. With Apple’s release of the SDK, developers now have the opportunity to create new programs for the corporate environment. Apple has released a list of 10 companies that supported the 2.0 beta, including Cisco Systems, Nike, Disney, and Microsoft, just to name a few.

“Enterprise support which includes Microsoft ActiveSync would allow iPhone users to wirelessly sync
their device to our Hosted Exchange servers and provide secure, over-the-air push email, contacts and calendars as well as remote wipe. These are features all of our customers want on their iPhones, and ActiveSync provides that,” says Steven Daneshgar, COO- Exchange My Mail, Inc.

“We have had many requests for full wireless data synchronization, between the Apple iPhone and Microsoft Exchange servers ever since the iPhone was launched. Customers just weren’t happy with the basic IMAP features, so this is great news for all of our iPhone customers,” adds David Grantz, CIO.

Exchange My Mail has always fully supported ActiveSync, and is excited to add the Apple iPhone to that list. ActiveSync is included free on all Exchange My Mail plans.

Burlington, MA, April 15, 2008 - 123Together.com, the leading provider of hosted enterprise-class messaging andcollaboration solutions such as hosted Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SP1 and hosted Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, today announced the release of Service Pack 1 for hosted SharePoint 3.0 to small and mid-size businesses (SMBs). This first service pack release provides businesses with increased performance, added stability and security enhancements.

123Together.com’s hosted messaging and collaboration customers can now take advantage of new document libraries, lists, and meeting workplace sites and enjoy enhancements to search capabilities, web discussions and browser-based customization. Serving as a central point of data dissemination for such things as documents, task lists, and image libraries, employees can create, share and manage project timelines, data lists, updated files, corporate photography, newly created web pages and intranet sites.

This enterprise-class collaboration tool provides businesses with increased individual and team productivity, collaboration and document sharing. It has traditionally been used by larger organizations with national or international reach since Windows SharePoint Services is not limited by geographic boundaries and stands as a central location from which to store and manage information. SMBs can also benefit from SharePoint’s collaborative features but have, until recently, been unable to do so due to the high cost and deployment delays involved in setting up servers in-house.

123Together.com’s hosted SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 now enables SMBs to take advantage of best-in-class collaboration to increase team productivity and business process efficiency without the need to incur upfront expenses, conduct additional training of IT staff or purchase of new hardware and software. Customers can sign up and collaborate with coworkers immediately on a shared or dedicated server with guaranteed uptime of 99.9% on shared servers and 100% on dedicated servers. 123Together.com also provides its hosted SharePoint Services customers with phone, email and online chat technical support 24 x 7 from its corporate headquarters in the United States. Customers’ questions are answered by hosted SharePoint experts in real time.

“We pride ourselves on providing small and mid-size businesses with the most current versions of our hosted messaging and collaboration solutions, such as hosted SharePoint Services 3.0 with Service Pack 1, as soon as they are available,” said Ravi Agarwal, senior executive officer, 123Together.com division of mindSHIFT Technologies, Inc. “Our current customers can be assured that they are utilizing enterprise-class hosted services with the most robust capabilities. Businesses who have previously been hesitant to deploy Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 without the benefit of Microsoft’s service pack enhancements can also have immediate access to hosted SharePoint for a small monthly fee and with guaranteed uptime.”

In additional to hosted Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1, 123Together.com offers SMBs a full breadth of hosted services including hosted Exchange Server 2007 SP1, virus and spam filtering, archiving and 2-way wireless synchronization with BlackBerry Enterprise Server, Good Messaging Server and Windows Mobile.

By associating with 123Together.com he is able to refer his clients to an affordable and reliable provider of hosted enterprise-class email which requires little assistance from him and provides best-in-class service to his valued customers. “Before deciding to affiliate with any (hosted) Exchange service, I evaluated every firm I could identify,” said Alan. “I selected 123Together.com based on their responsiveness and focus, and have continued to recommend them because they have delivered. The affiliate program makes it easy to generate additional revenue, but my primary motivation for recommending 123Together.com is because it helps my customers to be successful “ which makes me successful.”

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, APRIL 8th, 2008 - IKANO Communications Inc., the nation’s leading aggregator of ISP services, announced today that it is teaming up with Google to deploy Google Apps™ - Google’s webbased platform for communication and collaboration. The collaboration will allow IKANO to help mid-sized Internet Service Providers, generally with 100,000 or less subscribers, to expand service offerings to end users, while reducing technology and support expenses and maintaining existing branding.

IKANO plans to migrate its current end users to Google Apps in the second quarter of this year. Thereafter, IKANO will extend the offering to its large base of wholesale and private label ISP customers. These customers purchase aggregated Internet access (DSL and Dialup), email and other IP solutions that IKANO bundles from major telco and other service providers in the U.S. and Canada.

With Google Apps, IKANO’s ISP customers will now have access to Google’s popular communications tools such as Gmail™ email, Google Docs™ collaboration, Google Calendar™ shared calendaring, Google Talk™ instant messaging, and the Start Page feature for creating a customizable home page. These services, powered by Google, are available to users via any Internet-connected computer and many mobile devices.

“Many ISPs are looking to take themselves out of the technology and infrastructure maintenance business so they can focus on their customers,” said George Naspo, IKANO CEO. “Google Apps allows ISPs to utilize Google’s dynamic communication and collaboration applications under the ISPs’ own domain names. Branded Google Apps services can bring new life into the ISPs product line at very little cost. Google’s robust communication tools, mobile email, and calendar services will give service providers nationwide a rich technology path into the future.”

“Google is excited to work with IKANO to provide their subscribers with rich applications to stay connected and communicate more effectively. It’s all hosted by Google, so there’s no hardware to maintain or software to install,” said Eugene Levitsky, Google Apps Sales Specialist.

IKANO is pleased to work with the Google team to offer Google Apps migration and support services. Both companies are committed to offering ISPs of all sizes useful communication and collaboration tools via cloud computing.

“We foresee this as a breakaway product in the industry. IKANO’s unique solution to ISPs provides mail migration services, branded portal development, and live Tier 1 customer support for Google Apps. It’s a great benefit to ISPs and end users to improve their Internet experience and therefore reduce churn,” said Todd Krause, IKANO Vice President of Customer Support. “In addition, with Google Apps, we’re able to provision subscribers automatically and give them single sign-on with IKANO’s existing services. Very few companies can offer nationwide DSL, Google Apps, and related customer support under one billing platform.”
