All Value Added Services Applications available on the USN platform can be individually licensed. These applications can be configured to either share a given number of ports or have dedicated number of ports per application. When sharing the ports, different priority levels can be assigned to each application. The product’s flexible architecture allows addition of newer services as they become available as well as customization of services to meet specific customer requirments.
The following Value Added Services Applications available on the USN Platform:
Audio Conferencing Application provides rich conferencing experience for demanding users. Support both Reservation less and Reservation based Audio Conferences. Simple to use. No/little training required.
Mission Critical Conferencing is a specialized application of audio conference bridge. Such conferencing is routinely used for FAA Air Traffic Control, NASA Rocket Launches, commercial Satellite Launch Control, Transfer Orbit Support Services etc.
Secure Audio Conferencing refers to conferencing which makes use of encrypted audio. The main advantage being that such conferences are immune from evesdropping. Secure conferencing is typically used by Heads of States, Battlefield commanders, Homeland security personnel, Financial regulators etc – anyone whose communication needs to be kept secure.
The XOP Networks USN platform supports SMPP3.4 protocol for interfacing with external SMSCs. This capability allows the USN to support both Mobile Originating (MO) and Mobile Terminating (MT) traffic. A Moderator can simply send a SMS text message to the USN and start an audio conference with people specified in the text message.
Imagine making one call to a conference bridge and starting a dial out conference with a pre-established group of participants – that’s what Instant Conferencing provides. Often we need a quick conference with a few people on the fly. There is no time for sending an invitation with the conference bridge credentials etc.
Hoot-n-Holler conferences are typically used for managing ‘many to many’ communications in mission critical scenarios such as Department of Homeland Security emergency management, satellite launch control, stock trading floors etc. This is a ‘party line’ type of conference in which a caller simply lifts a handset on a squawk box and ‘hoots’ into the ongoing conference. Whatever is said is heard by all other participants. This process continues for as long as the H-n-H conference is active.
Traditional Firebar or out dialed conferencing is used by 911 dispatch personnel to inform and bring a group of first responders into an emergency audio conference. These systems require dedicated phone lines that terminate on the line side of the central office switch of a phone company. XOP Networks’ Firebar application resides on the USN that is deployed on the trunk side of the switch. Hence it can be used to notify first responders on their landline phones, cell phone or via SMS and pagers.
Web based application, no software download required to your PC. Designed to run across the Internet or a private data network without requiring any changes to firewalls. Running behind a secure private data network insures that your web conference content cannot be compromised.
XOP Networks Video Conferencing Application works in conjunction with the Web Conferencing application. It allows people to see each other via webcams built into PCs and smartphones while sharing their desktop. This further helps businesses reduce their travel costs and operate more efficiently.
Current voicemail systems typically only allow sequential access to voicemails. XOP Networks’ enhanced Voicemail application allows the voicemail to be accessed in random order. The Voicemail application displays all stored voicemails on a Web portal. This is also referred to as Visual Voicemail.
Mass Notification Application is designed to send multi-modal (i.e., voice, SMS, pager, email) messages to thousands of people during emergency and non-emergency situations.
