Oracle updates service creation environment, integrates Java in Converged Application Server

REDWOOD SHORES, CA. Oracle has released the standards-based Oracle Communications Converged Application Server 5.1, a carrier-grade platform for the development and deployment of next-generation communications services. The updated version of the Converged Application Server provides a service deployment architecture for Communications Service Providers (CSPs), and includes support for IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), Java, and Web services standards. By converging telecommunications and IMS/VoLTE domains with Web and enterprise environments, the Oracle Communications Converged Application Server 5.1 provides the possibility for new service and revenue creation.

The Oracle Communications Converged Application Server 5.1 includes a converged load balancer for preserving call states across multi-node configurations, support for virtualization, an enhanced service creation environment, and application orchestration for the integration of multiple services. The service creation environment is based on the Java Enterprise Edition and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Servlet, as well as the JSR 309 Application Programming Interface (API).

“As CSPs evolve to all-IP and converged networks, they must monetize those investments by deploying differentiated, value-added services to their customers.” says Bhaskar Gorti, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Communications. “The latest release of Oracle Communications Converged Application Server offers an open development ecosystem to support innovative application development, while also reducing costs and helping grow revenue.”
