The Optimal One Platform is now Open
and Free to the Public!
The Communication SDK of our Integrated Cloud Device Platform supporting
all OPTiM’s services is now globally accessible.
20 app vendors are already working to make Remote Experience Sharing a reality.
Tokyo (March 30, 2015) – OPTiM (TSE Mothers: 3694), a leading provider of business-related applications for smart devices, proudly announces that Optimal One Platform, the platform supporting all OPTiM’s services, is now globally open to the public. As first step, OPTIM makes the Communication SDK, the core library of the Optimal One Platform that allows everyone to remotely share knowledge, know-how and information with individuals/groups in real-time, open and free. This enables our App Alliance Partners to utilize the features including OPTiM’s patents and deliver highly-secured and high-quality feature enhancements.
■About the Optimal One Platform
Optimal One Platform is the platform at the basis of all OPTiM’s services, including Optimal Biz (Japan’s No.1※1MDM※2 for three straight years), Optimal Remote (a remote support service used by more than 15 million people worldwide※3), and Unlimited Tablet/Unlimited Smartphone (world’s first※4 flat-rate comprehensive digital magazine service).
With the rise of smartphones/tablets, new types of usage patterns have surfaced. To tackle all these new opportunities, OPTiM developed Remote Experience Sharing, a new way for everyone to remotely share experience (knowledge, know-how and information) with individuals/groups in real-time, as if standing right on their side.
■About OPTiM SDKs
OPTiM SDKs is a generic name for device SDKs※5 employed by OPTiM’s products and services such as Optimal Biz, Optimal Remote and more. The device SDKs are available for multiple devices and Operating Systems. Each SDK utilizes OPTiM’s patents – meaning that all App Alliance Partners can implement high-quality and highly-secured features into their own apps. The open Communication SDK that was just released is also part of OPTiM SDKs, and it is featured mainly in products and services classified as Remote Management Services (e.g. Optimal Remote).
■About OPTiM Cloud APIs
OPTiM Cloud APIs is a generic name for APIs※6 enabling other apps and softwares to use the features of OPTiM’s products and services via the Internet. Each API achieves easy and secure linking with OPTiM’s services such as ID Management, License Management, and Device Management.
■About the Communication SDK
The Communication SDK, which was formerly called “In-App Remote SDK”※7, is an integrated SDK that provides necessary features for communication, and enables screen-sharing, VoIP, chat, connection management, ID management, and more. The SDK makes the development of apps for in-house use or service provision incorporating real-time screen-sharing possible. The SDK works smoothly with iOS restrictions and Android™ devices with device type limitations, ensuring a silky experience when users share knowledge, know-how and information※8.
Easy and free embedding
Embedding the Communication SDK requires a simple copy/paste of the code.
No server requirement
Cloud servers are provided by OPTiM
The same security standards as with OPTiM's enterprise products are enabled
- iOS/Android™ support
Two types of provisioning models are available.
Free provision to support service providers and general app providers. An environment allowing an operator to connect with an app featuring the Communication SDK.
Provision to system integrators, financial companies, and app developer companies. Usage includes in-house dedicated apps or closed network spaces. This model provides the highest level of security and requires individual consultation.
■Communication SDK usage scenarios
The Communication SDK provides integrated features for communication, which can be used in a variety of scenarios. For example, a corporate app embedding the chat feature can allow smooth communication between users, or a design app which requires complex interactions can benefit from support service with the screen-sharing feature.
- Provision of support service by providers / general purpose app vendors, etc;
- Facilitate communication with custom corporate apps through screen-sharing support, VoIP, and chat;
- Adding a chat feature to groupware apps;
- Adding a voice call feature to store kiosk terminal apps;
- Adding live “streaming” by screen-sharing or communication features with VoIP/chat to a smartphone game.
At OPTiM Remote World 2015, paired with the announcement of the opening of the SDK to the public, OPTiM also announced the Optimal One Platform Alliance. App vendors joining the Optimal One Platform Alliance can easily add OPTiM’s technology to their own apps embedding OPTiM’s Communication SDK.
