Adobe has acquired Antepo, Inc. Antepo developed the Antepo Open Presence Network (OPN) System, a platform for Enterprise Instant Messaging and Presence capabilities, for real-time communication and collaboration while meeting critical business requirements for control, security, integration, and compliance. The Antepo technology provides both XMPP and SIP support. Additionally, Antepo’s technology supports federation with certain other IM systems, including connectivity to Google Talk, IBM Lotus Sametime, and Microsoft Live Communications Server, as well as the ability to expose presence to applications beyond chat. The current plan is to incorporate the technology into a future release of Connect and Acrobat. Integrations with other Adobe products are being evaluated. Adobe also acquired certain assets of Amicima, Inc., a privately held corporation dedicated to developing improved Internet protocols for client-server and peer-to-peer networking. Amicima’s protocol suite provides secure client-server and peer-to-peer networking that supports both one-to-one and scalable group communication, quality-of-service prioritization and latency control for multimedia communication. Antepo’s presence capabilities and Amicima’s peer-to-peer technology is expected to enhance future versions of the Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat Connect software and services product lines. http://www.adobe.com/special/antepo/, http://www.adobe.com/special/amicima/
