XOP Networks Deploys its Audio Conference Bridge on a VMware Virtual Machine
We pride ourselves at being on the forefront of Conference Bridge technology. Our ability to support our audio conferencing application on VMware ESX is another step in that direction.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB)September 30, 2011
XOP Networks, Inc., a developer of Value Added Service (VAS) software based platforms and Audio Conference Bridges announces availability of its Audio Conference Bridge application on VMware’s ESX Virtual Server.
The server virtualization technology allows a physical server to host multiple instances of virtual servers. Use of virtual servers improves the availability and manageability of servers besides saving space and power.
The XOP Networks’ builds a variety of value added service applications including Audio Conferencing, Web Conferencing, Video Conferencing, Enhanced Firebar (emergency conferencing), Voice Mail, and Mass Notification (emergency alerting). All of these applications work with SIP/H.323 VoIP trunks on Linux based servers and hence can run on Linux based virtual machines.
Morsy Saadeh, Executive Manager, Kuwait TechNet Company said “our unique operating environment required us to use one of our VMware servers to host the XOP Networks Audio Conference Bridge. We were able to download XOP’s audio conference bridge application, install it on our VMware based virtual machine and integrate it with our IP PBX over a SIP trunk. The entire process was smooth and we are very pleased with the outcome.”
“We pride ourselves at being on the forefront of Conference Bridge technology. Our ability to support our audio conferencing application on VMware ESX is another step in that direction.” said Sudhir Gupta, XOP Networks’ CEO.
About XOP Networks
Beginning in 2003, XOP Networks embarked on developing a next generation IP based service and application platform. Realizing this vision, it shipped its first product, a Digital Collaboration Bridge (DCB) in 2004. A DCB combines rich Audio Conferencing with Desktop sharing, Document sharing and White boarding, thus creating a collaborative experience for the end users. Leveraging the success of the DCB, the product portfolio was expanded in 2005 to include the Group Alerting and Conferencing Server (GACS). The GACS allows mass notification messages to be dispatched over a variety of communications networks, while it brings an organization's brain trust into a quick audio conference. Year 2006 saw the addition of the enhanced Voice Mail Server (VMS) to the product line. In 2007 XOP Networks launched its Universal Service Node (USN) which offers multiple value added services on one platform. In 2008, we added support for Hoot and Holler conferencing over TDM and VoIP networks on our USN platform. In 2009 we introduced Ring down Firebar Conference (RFCS) that allows a conference to be set up simply by lifting a handset on an analog or IP phone. Several other enhancements were introduced including support for secure conferencing, SMS driven instant-conferencing, Group SMS and Voice SMS, and One Number Service capabilities. In 2010 the product line was further hardened for use in defense networks and received the coveted JITC certification from the US Department of Defense. In 2011, Desktop Video Conferencing and One Number Service were added to the product line.
