FALL VON 2000, ATLANTA - Sept. 12, 2000 - dynamicsoft. Inc., a leading infrastructure solutions provider for next-generation communications networks, today unveiled its Session Management Suite 1.0, an integrated suite of dynamicsoft products optimized to work seamlessly with leading gateway, billing, security and network management systems.
When combined with products from dynamicsoft's NetValue Program Partners (see separate dynamicsoft news release issued today), the dynamicsoft Session Management Suite 1.0 provides complete solutions for communications application service providers (comm ASPs) and network service providers (NSPs). Service providers can deploy the Session Management Suite 1.0 as a secure, scalable and open solution for deploying new revenue-generating communications services. dynamicsoft will demonstrate its Session Management Suite in booth #502 at Fall VON 2000, opening here today.
"Comm ASPs and NSPs can use the dynamicsoft Session Management Suite to provision, deploy, manage and bill for a wide range of SIP-based communications services - from simple phone calls and CLASS services, through sophisticated services combining voice and the Web," said Eric Sumner, president and CEO of dynamicsoft Inc. "Our suite also offers the industry's first software control of a media firewall to protect next-generation networks from security threats."
One of the first customers for dynamicsoft's Session Management Suite is Webley Systems, Inc., a leader in unified communications and messaging that offers Webley, a speech-recognition-driven "personal assistant" that integrates users' calls and messages over the phone and Internet.
"dynamicsoft's support, responsiveness and level of expertise made them the logical choice for Webley Systems," said Gary Kalanj, senior vice president of engineering and product management at Webley Systems. "Their leadership position expedites Webley's introduction of next-generation IP-based unified communications."
VON Demo Spotlights Advanced Services
The centerpiece of dynamicsoft's VON exhibit is a full-function demonstration of the Session Management Suite showcasing its benefits for next-generation service providers. The demo, which includes Cisco 3620 voice gateways and Cisco 7960 SIP IP phones, will feature advanced applications such as time-based call screening and a "point, click, talk" voice-enabled e-commerce solution from dynamicsoft customer eStara. The demo also spotlights how easily new services can be provisioned, as well as the suite's integration with third-party billing, network management and security solutions.
"As this VON demonstration shows, the integration of Cisco's industry-leading voice gateways with dynamicsoft's Session Management Suite offers service providers a comprehensive, carrier-grade solution to deploy a full range of advanced, revenue-generating services over IP-based networks," said Alistair Woodman, director of marketing, Packet Telephony Division at Cisco.
The VON demonstration includes products from ACE*COMM Corp. (data capture and billing/mediation), Aravox (security and firewall solutions) and Hewlett-Packard (OpenView SNMP network management); ACE*COMM and Aravox are members of the dynamicsoft NetValue Partner Program. The foundation of the Session Management Suite consists of dynamicsoft's award-winning SIP-based products for building next-generation networks, including:
- dynamicsoft SIP Proxy Server 5.0: SIP Proxy Server 5.0, which routes and manages SIP sessions across the network, features scalability and reliability enhancements that ensure carrier-grade performance. The proxy server can generate billing-related transactions that can be used by third-party billing intermediation partners. Carrier-class scalability is ensured via load-balancing and SRV record support to eliminate network bottlenecks and single points of failure. Proxy Server 5.0 also leverages Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to support network management solutions from leading vendors.
- dynamicsoft SIP Firewall Control Proxy 1.0: This specialized proxy server is designed to interact with media-enabled firewalls such as those offered by Aravox Technologies to provide a domain-level security solution. The SIP Firewall Control Proxy marks the industry's first software control of a media firewall, enabling service providers to insulate their enhanced services from hackers, viruses, fraud and other network security threats.
- dynamicsoft SIP Location Server 3.0: The SIP Location Server provides user authentication, location and registration services for large-scale SIP networks. The Provisioning Console, a new feature, is a powerful Web-based provisioning tool that not only lets systems administrators activate new services with just a text editor and browser, but also gives end users the freedom to provision and change their own services with an easy-to-use Web-based interface. The Provisioning Console leverages the open Apache Web server.
