TRENDnet offers wireless voice conferencing for SMBs
TRENDnet announced the release of its ClearSky Bluetooth VoIP Conference phone kit (TVP-SP4BK) for Skype. The Skype conference phone kit is designed to enable hands-free voice conferencing for small businesses for use anywhere in the office using a wireless Bluetooth connection.
Skype allows users to place and receive encrypted calls to other Skype users or regular landline and mobile phones over a high-speed internet connection. TRENDnet’s conference phone kit eliminates the need for wires by using a long-range Bluetooth connection, so businesses can make conference calls from anywhere in the office.
The ClearSky kit includes the conference phone base unit and a Bluetooth 2.0 adapter with a Class 1 radio. Together, these create a long-range Bluetooth connection, users plug the included USB Bluetooth 2.0 adapter into a Skype-enabled laptop or desktop and the conference phone can be placed anywhere within 100m. The conference phone’s integrated LCD screen and touchpad offer control and viewing of Skype contacts, call history, status and SkypeOut credit balance. This allows users to place and receive calls remotely without being next to their PC.
The TVP-SP4BK ClearSky Bluetooth VoIP Conference phone kit will begin shipping in August with an MSRP of US$149.99.

DataMirror includes enhancements with latest release of Transformation Server
DataMirror announced performance enhancements to the latest version of Transformation Server for z/OS, DataMirror’s data integration solution for IBM mainframe environments.
Transformation Server for z/OS 5.1.7 includes a single scrape feature and auto-restart capability designed to meet the performance and operational requirements of large scale implementations such as those typically found in z/OS environments.
Transformation Server for z/OS uses log-based Change Data Capture (CDC) technology to capture changed data from existing database recovery logs, avoiding the overhead and risks associated with trigger-based and table-scan based solutions. Data changes are captured natively on the mainframe system as they happen and flow to the target database systems or middleware message queues, keeping distributed information up-to-date and in sync.
