Overview

IBM Lotus® Sametime® 7.5, IBM's award-winning and market-leading platform for real-time collaboration, offers integrated instant messaging and Web conferencing capabilities with the security features required for business use. Lotus Sametime 7.5 includes over 150 new features, including rich text, chat histories, integrated Voice over IP (VoIP), managed interoperability with public IM networks, and new options for telephony and video integration.

Lotus Sametime 7.5:

  • Provides you with easy-to-use, intuitive technology that gives you a rapid way to resolve problems and settle questions through clear, high quality communications
  • Allows you to access global teams on the fly
  • Provides a cost-effective, consistent approach to real-time collaboration within an encrypted, authenticated, managed environment
  • Offers integration with Microsoft™ Office and Outlook applications
  • Includes a mobile client that can be deployed on multiple mobile platforms and devices

The perils of doing business on unsecured public IM networks, and the spiraling, unpredictable costs of so-called "pay as you go" Web conferencing services mean that Lotus Sametime 7.5 is the right choice — and the only choice — for real-time collaboration in the enterprise.

IBM Lotus Sametime Enterprise Meeting Server 7.5 offers clustering and failover capabilities for high-reliability Web conferences.

Enhancements include:

  • An easier installation and deployment process
  • The potential to realize a lower total cost of ownership through the need for fewer servers
  • Improvements in the underlying capabilities provided by more recent versions of IBM WebSphere® Application Server and IBM DB2®

Note: Connectivity to public IM networks, Microsoft Office and Outlook integration, and mobile clients will be available after the general availability of Lotus Sametime 7.5.

Description

IBM Lotus Sametime 7.5 includes more than 150 new features, as well as public IM interoperability, at no additional charge, enhanced integration with desktop applications, and mobile instant messaging clients. Lotus Sametime 7.5 represents a major upgrade in instant messaging and Web conferencing capabilities and benefits across three main categories.

Instant messaging chat capabilities

The Sametime 7.5 chat window will deliver many productivity-enhancing IM features, including:

  • Real-time spell check of messages as they are being typed
  • Time stamps
  • Rich fonts (select font size, color)
  • Screen capture that can be embedded in an IM message
  • Chat history automatically saved on user's PC (optional)
  • Privacy enhancements and additional do not disturb settings
  • Emoticons
  • Display of contact information and user photos
  • Automatic status change when a user enters a Web conference
  • Customization is enhanced

Instant messaging client

  • New, updated design.
  • Quick find for contacts and integrated directory search.
  • Physical location awareness.
  • Voice over IP (VoIP) voice chat that is embedded, allowing users to easily start multiparty PC-to-PC conversation with other Lotus Sametime users.
  • Built on the Eclipse framework, which offers a number of benefits including a plug-in model that enables IBM, third-parties, and businesses themselves to add new functions such as soft-phones, video capabilities, calendar access, persistent chat rooms, and access to other enterprise systems.
  • Client platform is expanded to support Linux™ and Apple's Mac OS X Version 10.4. (Macintosh support to be available at a later date).
  • Microsoft Office applications integration.
  • Audio, video, and PC-based collaboration tools integration to converge telephony capabilities from industry leaders in telephony and desktop video solutions. It provides click-to-call capabilities, enabling businesses to instantly place a telephone call to an instant messaging or e-mail contact while remaining in their inbox or instant messaging client.
  • Managed public IM interoperability.

Web conferencing enhancements

Lotus Sametime 7.5 will also bring a number of enhancements to the Web conference experience, both from the standpoint of the look and feel of the user interface, and the ease with which participants will be able to get into a meeting.

  • Web conferencing meeting room redesigned offering improvements in navigation and access to Web conference tools.
  • Application sharing, whiteboard performance, and usability enhancements for high quality, bandwidth efficient presentation sharing.
  • Easy and quick launch and attendance to a Web conference regardless of whether attendees are coming from inside or outside the company. Lotus Sametime 7.5 provides specific indication of meeting entry progress to remove sources of confusion, as well as an auto-reconnect capability should there be any temporary disruptions in connectivity during the course of a meeting.

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.

Statement of direction

It is IBM Lotus' intention to continue to offer high performance, security-rich access, and robust tools that can help user communities to manage their messaging and collaboration needs, regardless of company size and industry focus.

The mobile IM client that will be included with Lotus Sametime 7.5 will enable users to broadcast presence and exchange instant messages, among other features, and will feature encryption of the transmission between the mobile device and the Sametime server. In order to offer additional security options and additional enhancements, IBM intends to deliver a separately priced feature that will provide FIPS 140-2 encryption, support for a wide variety of wired and wireless networks, and offer additional capabilities to optimize transmission, minimizing bandwidth usage and costs, and improving user productivity. This feature will also enable security-rich, seamless roaming between networks when used with devices that support multiple network connections.

All statements regarding IBM's plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice.

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for your specific implementation of the given program must be obtained from a conversion table associated with the program. You must obtain a Proof of Entitlement (PoE) for the appropriate number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements of a given program cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

Processor (Value Unit)

A processor (commonly called a CPU or core) is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor value unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of Value Units based on all activated processors on the server available to the program or a component of the program.

Concurrent user

A concurrent user is one and only one individual within or outside your enterprise. The number of PoEs required is for the highest number of users simultaneously accessing the program or any program components either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Authorized user

An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside your enterprise. A PoE must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A program licensed under an authorized user PoE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a PoE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Processor day

Processor day is a daily charge that allows a customer to purchase additional capacity during peak periods. This applies to per CPU products only and requires the customer to already own a per CPU license of product.

Authorized user

An authorized user (user) is one and only one individual, machine, program or device with a specific identity (ID) within or outside your enterprise.

A PoE is evidence of your authorization to use a program and is required for each User accessing the program or any component, application, feature, function or capability thereof, either directly or indirectly, through any means on behalf of the user in any manner.

The program may be installed on one or more computers, and accessed by multiple users provided that a User authorization has been obtained for each individual user.

  1. Users have unique specific identity and IDs cannot be shared.
  2. An ID may establish one or more connections and count as a single user.
  3. An ID may only be reassigned for the long-term replacement of personnel, machine, program, or device.

Limited warranty: Yes

Warranty: This program includes a warranty for one year from acquisition from IBM or an authorized IBM Business Partner. For one year from acquisition of the program, this warranty provides the customer with access to databases containing program information and FAQs, including any known fixes to defects, which the customer can download or otherwise obtain and install.

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three 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 customers with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. Customers 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, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund.

  • For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.
  • For programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by the customer.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Guide at

Software Maintenance does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available on the IBM eServer platform. These services provide the opportunity for greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers 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 IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
