Radisys, a provider of embedded wireless infrastructure and ATCA-compliant telecom platform deployment solutions, recently revealed that its CounterPath (News - Alert) Bria desktop and mobile softphone applications can now be seamlessly integrated with the company’s MPX-12000 broadband Multimedia Resource Function (MRF), in order to enhance the delivery of mobile video services.
The telecom platform deployment solution gives mobile operators an opportunity to monetize the growing volume of mobile video traffic and increase average revenue per user (ARPU). The highly efficient broadband MRF solution supports compelling, differentiated and personalized real-time audio and video services.
"Our new Radisys MPX-12000 will provide the scalability and economics to offer profitable mobile video value-added services (VAS) in an IMS architecture, but consumption of these services requires an easy and efficient user interface on the mobile device," said Manish Singh (News - Alert), CTO, Radisys, in a statement.
"CounterPath's Bria softphone applications provide a compelling user experience, using the same IMS-based signaling and media interfaces supported by the Radisys MPX-12000,” Singh added. “The Bria applications' ability to deliver a ubiquitous user experience on a variety of mobile devices provides Radisys' customers with a complete end-to-end mobile video service delivery infrastructure."
Radisys' MPX-12000 enables telecom equipment manufacturers to avoid the complicated, time-consuming and expensive task of building broadband MRFs from scratch to meet operators' needs.
The telecom platform deployment provider has formed a strategic partnership with CounterPath to develop integrated mobile video service solutions, which will be built on SIP and open standards and delivered using the Radisys MPX-12000. The combined solution is compliant with IMS standards and offers multi-platform support, allowing TEMs to quickly demonstrate services that ensure maximum addressable market and revenue growth potential for mobile operators.
The CounterPath Bria interface is specifically designed to support multiple mobile client environments, broadening the appeal of a service offering to a much larger market. CounterPath's Bria softphone works on multiple mobile platforms including PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone and Android (News - Alert).
The combination of Bria with the Radisys MPX-12000 provides a compelling video services solution offering for mobile operators. The combined telecom platform deployment solution provides mobile operators an attractive value proposition for monetizing VoIP and mobile video VAS in 3G and emerging 4G/LTE (News - Alert) mobile networks.
Earlier this year, Radisys reported it had attained 175 additional wireless infrastructure customers, further enhancing the company’s leadership position across multiple technology domains. To read the full report, click here.
