Telecom Media Center in the Test

We have the Media Center Telecom cloud service in the test. The apps are quickly beginner friendly and files. But a few things that bother us.

In the test the Telecom Media Center revealed the clear division of responsibilities in the magenta cloud: the email Center keeps post, dates and addresses. The second key component of Telecom cloud stores photos, videos, music and more on the Internet. An E-Mail address with T-online extension opens the way to the 25 GB large online storage.

The clean Web interface you can from any Internet-enabled computer from photos see, play music or videos, files with a mouse click between cloud and PC high-download and manage the database. The Media Center software for Windows PCs completed the automatic matching discreetly in the background. You can also embed the online data center via the WebDav standard on the Mac as a virtual drive.

The user-friendly apps for iPhone, iPad and Android devices are suitable for the automatic photo upload and audio / video streaming. On the road share pictures and documents – also works right off the bat. In addition, sent passwords secure access to the shares by E-Mail. Invitees can download shared content, open, and edit. To do this, the guests don’t even need a T-Online address.

Upload of the updated files works but only if the host has granted write permissions. Dropbox or Google drive offer a more comprehensive function safely. So for example, a search function as well as an application for secure 2-factor authentication is missing. Deutsche Telekom claims to hold the data only on Web servers in perfectly safe German data centers, so that in this country more stringent data protection rules.
