WebEx CoIPs with Convedia


Provider of IP media processing platforms, Convedia Corporation (news alert) announced it joined WebEx Communications Inc. (news alert), to deploy its CMS-6000 and CMS-1000 Media Servers in the WebEx MediaTone Network.


As agreed, the Convedia Media Servers will deliver IP media processing to integrate WebEx�s Voice over IP (VoIP) (define - news - alert - tutorial) conferencing capability. This will allow WebEx to deliver a multimedia conferencing experience over a common, economical IP-based services infrastructure.


�Our technical team has performed extensive internal testing of IP Media Server products from a number of vendors," said Shawn Farshchi, CIO at WebEx Communications. "In the end, Convedia's features, reliability, scalability and technical support proved decisive in the selection and deployment of Convedia Media Servers."


This union will allow a bundle of new features added on to everything that the WebEx service already offers. Their voice conferencing services will be greatly enhanced since they will be delivered through a hybrid PSTN/VoIP capability.


Convedia's CMS-6000 Media Server and CMS-1000 Media Server merge traditional announcement and recording server functions with interactive voice response (IVR/VRU) units, multimedia conference bridges, messaging platforms and speech platforms into a multi-service, open standards compliant solution for network and enhanced services media processing.


Later this year, WebEx also plans to release a combo service offering with Jabber, Inc. (news alert), a provider of real-time business communications software. Both companies agreed to combine the services of enterprise IM with Web conferencing into one solution.


Vancouver, Canada-based Convedia has regional offices in Asia and the U.S.
