    • in large companies, where multiple OpenTouch servers can now federate and support up to 20K users.

The new suite creates opportunity for Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Channel Partners to reach businesses of all sizes. OpenTouch Suite 2.2.1 addresses the communication needs of multi-site SMBs, large campus organizations and now large companies with several locations and subsidiaries.
