iotum Communications Service Available on Solegy’s Managed Service Delivery Platform
iotum service now supported by Solegy’s open source proxy, allowing service providers to leverage the benefits of open source
New York, NY & Ottawa, ON — March 5, 2007 — Solegy, a provider of a managed service delivery platform for VoIP, IMS and other next generation services, announced today that it has partnered with iotum to empower service providers with an open source access point to iotum’s relevant voice communications services. Through Solegy’s open source proxy and managed service delivery platform, Service PDQ, service providers or businesses can leverage iotum’s voice communications service which prioritizes and manages voice communications.
By downloading the open source proxy, calls can be routed with a single configuration parameter in the proxy’s integrated Web User Interface. The free software can be downloaded at www.opensourcesip.org, the home of Solegy’s open source initiative.
“The need for VoIP service providers to differentiate their offerings from traditional telcos has never been more important,” said Eric Hernaez, CEO and co-founder of Solegy. “One of the best ways to do this is by leveraging IP communications tools that apply a user’s contextual information to their telephone interactions. iotum’s service is an excellent example of this capability. Solegy’s objective is to offer service providers a platform on which the best and most innovative services can be tied together in a stable and massively scalable environment.”
Through Solegy’s ServicePDQ platform, service providers can launch their own next-generation services which incorporate both iotum’s communications platform and ServicePDQ’s routing and account management functions. ServicePDQ is software system that provides a single point for clients to develop, deploy, manage and charge for services across multiple networks. For VoIP service providers, ServicePDQ delivers the necessary infrastructure for call management and charging of any kind of Internet-based phone calls. The iotum service will also be available as a part of Solegy’s new managed PBX service, which will allow service providers to offer business customers a highly redundant and scaleable, single-source solution for all of their voice needs.
“Working with Solegy for pure open source access and modification means more service providers can benefit from our mapping and pronto conferencing features,” said Alec Saunders, president of iotum. “We view the open source aspect as being integral to iotum’s offering. Not only will our service provider clients benefit from a fully standard-compliant and multi-protocol support proxy, their own clients will benefit from the enhanced scalability and flexibility that Solegy’s Open SBC implementation provides.”
