NimCat in action

We were treated to a live demo of the Nimcat Networks nimX middleware today at our palacial London offices. Marc Gingras, VP of Business Development and Marketing, came in with his bag of tricks, containing three Aastra 408i phones with nimX loaded. He set up a mini-LAN in our conference room, plugged in the phones, and they took less than a minute to self-configure. We then ran through a lot of the features available. It was all very impressive, and will probably be even more so when the company starts to build in more presence-related features. This is an interesting company, not only because it has a revolutionary technology, but also because it has relatively humble aspirations and is focusing on a particular market niche in getting established.
