jNetrix Develops New Telecom Usage Metrics Service on Pactolus Open Source

By Jayashree Adkoli, TMCnet Contributor

Canadian telecom applications developer jNetrix Systems has developed and deployed an new telecom usage metrics service, by making use of Pactolus Communications’s (News - Alert) open source/open access service creation environment,
The new telecom service by jNetrix has the capability to support new levels of telecom usage control in real-time and can even sort the telecom usage patterns by itself.
Pactolus said that jNetrix’ innovative telecom usage metrics service is the most recent highly-scalable telecom service applications that was developed using the company’s service creation-centric open source framework/open access developer tools. is an open source developer community funded and operated by Pactolus Communication Software. The community facilitates developers to build applications for next-generation, session initiation protocol (SIP)-based applications for VoIP and IMS (IP multimedia subsystem) networks using XTML, and an associated service delivery platform. Developers can get a fully-functioning development environment on the site including: service creation environment; SIP application server; software media server, capable of interactive voice response (IVR) and conferencing; and tools for managing and operating all of the above- at zero costs.
SIPdev’s service creation environment (SCE), which is object-based, facilitates developers to create any application that they can conceptualize. It can be considered as a more flexible alternative over IP PBX (News - Alert)-centric developer resources.
SIPdev’s RapidFLEX-based SCE features more than 400 objects, which simplifies service creation and as well as customization. The RapidFLEX-based service delivery platform (SDP) protects IP voice & multimedia services automatically by transparently integrating various key functions, which are necessary to sustaining call states.
“The open source platform first used to build the service turned out to be overly rigid and lacking a service creation environment,” said  Jeff Gibson, president of jNetrix Systems, in a statement. “It also sharply limited service functionality and scale, so we turned to Pactolus’ SIPdev for the freedom to create advanced business intelligence-driven telecom services.”
Gibson added: “As independent telecom service developers, we have to offer service providers, content providers and enterprises new and significantly better NGN service efficiencies, usability and economics. The service we’ve announced today incorporates real-time capabilities and intelligence that couldn’t feasibly be created with alternative open source/open access developer resources, and we went from concept to working prototype within weeks.”
jNetrix Systems develops scalable SIP-based telecommunications applications for service providers and enterprises as well as custom service extensions that aids to improve the functionality and lifecycle of legacy telecom and Web services.
Pactolus Communications Software is a provider of customizable SIPware services that include residential/business Class 5 VoIP, large operator-assisted event and reservation-less audio conferencing, prepaid/post paid services and voice messaging.
