Dialogic (News - Alert) has added a host of new features as part of the firm’s ongoing efforts to enhance support for its next-generation applications and services on IP networks.
A global provider of products and technologies for media and signal processing, the Montreal-based firm said the new features have been added to the Dialogic Converged Services Platform (CSP (News - Alert)), including a host-based SIP stack for added design flexibility, and more robust media processing capabilities to support innovative IP-based applications and services such as voice and signaling services.
The move is expected to make the offering more flexible with the CSP delivering on Dialogic’s mission to provide open programmable architecture designed to meet the demands of a wide variety of communications services, over multiple types of networks, according to Jim Machi, senior vice president of Marketing at Dialogic.
“The CSP allows service providers to preserve their investment in today’s existing network infrastructure while at the same time allowing them to build and deploy next-generation IP-based applications and services,” said Machi.
The CSP provides application developers with both IP and PSTN connectivity, media processing functions, and call control signaling protocols, enabling them to implement feature-rich, network-based voice and signaling services. The platform bridges existing wired and wireless networks with next-generation IP networks, integrates IP and TDM protocols, and allows development of Intelligent Network services.
