Acme Packet Demonstrates First WebRTC to Multi-Vendor IMS Interworking Capability

Acme Packet to Demonstrate Technology at the WebRTC Conference & Expo in San Francisco, CA

BEDFORD, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Acme Packet® (NASDAQ: APKT), the leader in session delivery networks, today announced the first successful demonstration of a WebRTC-enabled browser calling a mobile network subscriber via a multi-vendor IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network -- employing a session border controller (SBC) for secure and seamless interoperability between the web and an IMS core with connectivity to the PSTN.

News Highlights:

  • WebRTC is an emerging standard for real-time communications (RTC) in web browsers and embeds voice and video directly into existing browsers without having to download stand-alone communication applications.

  • Enabled by Acme Packet SBCs, an HTML5-based WebRTC dialer on a laptop was used inside of Google's Chrome browser to initiate a call to a 3G mobile subscriber using a major North American mobile service providers' multi-vendor IMS infrastructure.

  • This demonstration represents a significant step towards the broader use of WebRTC by showing how WebRTC technology can be used to connect billions of Internet users to the PSTN's six billion fixed line and mobile subscribers.

  • Today Acme Packet will be presenting a live demonstration of this capability at the WebRTC Conference & Expo in San Francisco, CA. Visit http://lphs.acmepacket.com/contact-us to schedule a meeting at the event.

  • An early proponent of WebRTC, Acme Packet is actively involved in WebRTC standardization in the IETF, including recommendations on WebRTC to SIP interworking and the use of SIP over WebSockets. Acme Packet has supported the use of web service interfaces to control real-time communications in commercial deployments for more than five years.

WebRTC Benefits with Acme Packet Solutions:

  • Vendor-neutral interoperability with third-party technology and networks
  • Features and interfaces for both web and SIP developers
  • Extension of existing SIP systems over the web through simple REST APIs or SIP over WebSockets
  • Ability to enable cutting-edge features, such as click-to-call and virtual phones
  • Trusted, first-class security with SBC functions
  • Advanced quality and reliability, regardless of network or vendor

Quotes:

  • "Acme Packet's successful demonstration of an IMS-connected WebRTC browser signals a new wave of communications by virtually placing a user's phone in any browser," said Pat MeLampy, chief technology officer, Acme Packet. "With Acme Packet solutions paving the way, WebRTC capabilities could extend IMS service delivery from carriers, revolutionize call center efficiency through web page click-to-call, and broaden enterprise unified communications service delivery."

  • "WebRTC is one of the most interesting and disruptive innovations I've seen in the last 10 years," said Dean Bubley, founder of analyst firm Disruptive Analysis. "It has the potential to extend existing service provider SIP assets and capabilities out onto the wider Internet, and also enables creation of brand-new forms of voice, video and messaging communications, going beyond a narrow definition of 'service' towards embedded features and functions built into the very fabric of the web itself."

Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
Today’s IT environments are increasingly heterogeneous, with Linux, Java, Oracle and MySQL considered nearly as common as traditional Windows environments. In many cases, these platforms have been integrated into an organization’s Windows-based IT department by way of an acquisition of a company that leverages one of those platforms. In other cases, the applications may have been part of the IT department for years, but managed by a separate department or singular administrator. Still, whether...
Without lifecycle traceability and visibility across the tool chain, stakeholders from Planning-to-Ops have limited insight and answers to who, what, when, why and how across the DevOps lifecycle. This impacts the ability to deliver high quality software at the needed velocity to drive positive business outcomes.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

About a year ago we tuned into “the need for speed” and how a concept like "serverless computing” was increasingly catering to this. We are now a year further and the term “serverless” is taking on unexpected proportions. With some even seeing it as the successor to cloud in general or at least as a successor to the clouds’ poorer cousin in terms of revenue, hype and adoption: PaaS. The question we need to ask is whether this constitutes an example of Hype Hopping: to effortlessly pivot to the ...
As we enter the final week before the 19th International Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo in Santa Clara, CA, it's time for me to reflect on six big topics that will be important during the show. Hybrid Cloud: This general-purpose term seems to provide a comfort zone for many enterprise IT managers. It sounds reassuring to be able to work with one of the major public-cloud providers like AWS or Microsoft Azure while still maintaining an on-site presence.
I’m a huge fan of open source DevOps tools. I’m also a huge fan of scaling open source tools for the enterprise. But having talked with my fair share of companies over the years, one important thing I’ve learned is that you can’t scale your release process using open source tools alone. They simply require too much scripting and maintenance when used that way. Scripting may be fine for smaller organizations, but it’s not ok in an enterprise environment that includes many independent teams and to...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
