For the past two years I have been working with several IBM Sametime 8.5.x installation and implementation projects:
- Implementing a new IBM Sametime 8.5.1 infrastructure for a Swedish government agency
- Implementing a new IBM Sametime 8.5.2 infrastructure for a manufacturing company
- Implementing a new IBM Sametime 8.5.2 IFR1 infrastructure for an insurance company
- Implementing a new IBM Sametime 8.5.2 IFR1 infrastructure for a communications company
- Implementing a new IBM Sametime 8.5.2 IFR1 infrastructure for a Fortune 500 company
All of these projects have involved installing and configuring the following Sametime components. Sametime System Console, DB2, Sametime Community Server, Sametime Proxy Server, Sametime Meeting Server and Sametime Media Manager. In one of the projects Sametime Advanced will be installed, in another project Sametime Bandwidth Manager is on the to-do list. Some of the projects are in the pilot stage, same is in production and all are introducing the features step-by-step. First chat services, second meetings services and last audio/video services.
My goal is under the next couple of months write several blog posts about my experiences with IBM Sametime 8.5.x. I will share information on how to do it and how not to do it, when it comes to installing, configuring and implementing IBM Sametime, both from a server and client perspective.
Stay tuned. 🙂
