Say Hello to Eze Voice, Our Next Generation Cloud Voice Solution

By Mary Beth Hamilton,
Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Last month we covered the five myths about Voice over IP (VoIP) in preparation for the general availability of our next generation Eze Voice service. In case you don’t recall, the myths we debunked were:

  • MYTH 1: Poor Call Quality – Everyone Will Know I’m on VoIP

  • MYTH 2: VoIP is Unreliable – I’ll Experience Downtime

  • MYTH 3: I’ll Lose Critical Functionality Required by My Investment Firm

  • MYTH 4: I Can’t Keep My Phone Number

  • MYTH 5: Someone May Hack My Phone System

Now that Eze Voice is officially here and already being used by many clients, we wanted to give it a little shout-out, so here goes. Eze Voice is an innovative hosted voice solution that combines high levels of redundancy and quality of service with the communication features financial firms require.

The newest version of the Eze Voice service leverages Eze Castle Integration’s premier global cloud platform, Eze Private Cloud, and is ideal for firms that want to benefit from the flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness offered with a cloud-based voice service. Featured benefits of Eze Voice include:

Philanthropy Plunge: Eze Castle Takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (Video)

By Kaleigh Alessandro,
Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few weeks, you've probably seen a slew of videos on your Facebook or Instagram news feeds featuring your friends and family members dumping buckets of ice over their heads. To what end?
 
The Ice Bucket Challenge is sweeping the nation and simultaneously raising awareness and money for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) – also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Pete Frates, a 29-year-old Boston-area man and former baseball captain at Boston College, is credited with leading the charge and challenging his friends to pour ice over their heads. The challenge took off in the Boston area and quickly went viral across the country and even globally. Celebrities are now accepting the challenge as well – and everyone from Justin Timberlake to Taylor Swift to Mark Zuckerberg have participated.
 
But beyond filling your news feeds with entertaining videos, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is also succeeding at spurring significant donations. As of this week, the ALS Association said it has received $15.6 million in donations since July 29 – compared with just $1.8 million during the same time period last year. We noticed many of our employees here at Eze Castle Integration were brave enough to accept the challenge, and we applaud them for raising awareness for such a worthy cause. We’ve created a short compilation below to highlight some of our amazing employees as they take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Does the Network Powering a Cloud Matter? Watch and Learn

By Mary Beth Hamilton,
Thursday, July 17th, 2014

We are excited to debut our newest video that explains why the network powering a cloud service matters and should be evaluated closely.

As background for why we created this video, in today’s interconnected financial world, investment firms have global interests and a global presence, making fully on-premise IT infrastructure a way of the past. Cloud service providers have a variety of capabilities, each designed to serve a specific set of needs, which makes it crucial for businesses to critically evaluate the network behind a cloud and what it can deliver. Not all clouds are created equal.

Our ECI Link Financial Network is a global private cloud network built for the financial industry. With data centers in the US, UK and Asia, it enables organizations to efficiently leverage a single provider for all their global infrastructure needs.

Now on to the video -- let us show you why ECI Link is THE single converged network built to power today’s buy-side firms' trading operations.

BlackBerry Z10 Is Special, So Check With Your Friendly IT Expert

By Mary Beth Hamilton,
Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Mobile phoneIn honor of the mobile phone turning 40 years old this week, today’s post is on the BlackBerry Z10.  (BTW: did you know the first mobile phone weighed 2.5 pounds and took 10 hours to charge?!)
 
Back to the topic at hand.  In January, when the BlackBerry Z10 was just officially unveiled, we took a look at the bells and whistles available on the device (Read: BlackBerry’s Reinvention: A look at BlackBerry Z10).  And now that the BlackBerry Z10 is available in over 35 countries, by all accounts it is just what the company needs if they have any hope of taking back market share from iPhone and Android makers. 

As part of its promotional push, BlackBerry is even letting iPhone and Android users test drive the new operating system by pointing their mobile browsers to BlackBerry.com/glimpse.
