New York City, NY, United States, 2006/06/19 - Solegy adds OpenSIPStack SIP User Agent, contributes select components of ServicePDQ to help developers create Next-Generation applications.
Solegy LLC, a leader in managed service deployment systems, today announced that it would incorporate the OpenSIPStack (OSS) SIP user agent into its flagship ServicePDQ managed communications platform, as well as contribute several components of the ServicePDQ software architecture to the OSS open source community. The steps are being taken to help companies and application developers create exciting new consumer and business services that leverage next-generation VoIP, cable and wireless technologies.
ServicePDQ is a flexible, managed service delivery platform that allows network operators, service providers and content developers to quickly take advantage of emerging communications networks. Its subscription-based model helps these customers bring products to market faster, create competitive points of difference, and maximize their return on investment.
With the open source steps being taken today, Solegy has opened the door for current and potential customers to create applications that hook into ServicePDQ for real-time rating, charging, resource allocation, and customer account management functions.
OpenSipStack (OSS) is an open source initiative to provide application developers with a fully compliant, freely available SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) stack. SIP, a peer-to-peer processing protocol, allows next-generation services—VoIP, video, instant messaging, and online games, for example—to take place through session initiation, modification, and termination.
"By making components of the ServicePDQ framework available to the OSS community at large, we hope to facilitate more rapid development of new services," said Eric Hernaez, Solegy’s chief executive officer. "Through its direct support of OpenSIPStack, Solegy is helping developers bring a new era of innovative and convergent product concepts to the marketplace."
OpenSIPStack is released under an industry-standard MPL 1.0 license. The MPL allows for derived software to remain closed for as long as the core library is left untouched, making it ideal for commercial use. The OpenSIPStack project includes a fully functional reference implementation of a SIP Registrar and Session Border Controller.
To ease the way for developers, Solegy is contributing Parlay-compatible ServicePDQ softswitch and presence/availability management applications for OSS use. Parlay is a project of The Parlay Group, an organization created to form open, technology-independent Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). These APIs help IT developers, rather than telephony experts, create convergent communications applications that operate across multiple, networking-platform environments.
