Eyeball's Messenger SDK and IM Server Powering Romanian Service Provider

By Tim Gray, TMCnet Web Editor


Romanian telecommunications service provider Media Sat has launched that country’s first instant messaging and VoIP service using Eyeball’s Messenger SDK and IM Server.
The service, called Alonia, integrates instant messaging, voice calls, video conferencing, and file transfer capabilities. The service is designed to allow subscribers to receive a phone number in the Media Sat network in order to make and receive calls from fixed and mobile phones.
Eyeball Networks (News - Alert), a leading developer of carrier-grade IP communications products, has integrated its feature-rich Eyeball MessengerSDK into the service for an overall VoIP, video telephony, instant messaging and presence.
The Vancouver-based Eyeball Networks, a leading developer of NAT-traversal solutions, and voice, video, IM software, provides NAT and firewall traversal software optimized to complete as many VoIP and video calls through peer-to-peer media delivery with fallback to client/server due to the many benefits this direct approach provides.

In conjunction with the Eyeball technology, Alonia is SIP and XMPP compliant with interoperability with Yahoo!, AOL, MSN, and Google (News - Alert) supported by peer-to-peer media delivery, according to the company.
Eyeball’s MessengerSDK offers guaranteed VoIP call completion thanks to Eyeball’s patented AnyFirewall Technology providing seamless firewall, proxy, and NAT traversal.
Eyeball AnyFirewallEngine is a NAT traversal Software Development Kit (SDK) for guaranteed VoIP and video call completion across NATs, firewalls, and Web proxies. It is designed to integrate with third party components such as SIP and JINGLE stacks, RTP libraries, and other voice and video engines for rapid development of feature-rich applications. 
Alonia is the first Romanian online communications service providing telephone call services, video telephony and instant messaging. The instant messaging service allows IM chats among Alonia users.
Under terms of the service Internet calls are free of charge, while calls to the Romtelecom network in the Bucharest capital will have a nominal per minute fee. Calls to fixed will be slightly more per minute with calls to mobile networks topping out 7.3 Eurocents/min.

The company says in the first 12 days since the launch of Alonia, Romanian IM Communication Service reported 37,851 users with most views coming from Romania. After Romania, the most website visits were from Spain and Italy, but also from Germany, United States, Great Britain and Republic of Moldova.
