The solution is a service provider offering and AGNITY is already actively engaged with a few LTE and Mobile operators.
Ever since being introduced in 2011, WebRTC has grown rapidly and is now poised to be a definitive technology disruptor for internet communications. According to recent estimates, more than one billion browsers and devices are already WebRTC enabled, presenting a huge market. The use of WebRTC enables ACONYX Unify to be used directly from the browser without requiring download of any software or plugin, and provides users with a quick, clean and stable communication media. For mobile users, Android and iOS apps are available.
Targeted to help service providers monetize their networks through immediate revenue generation and service differentiation, AGNITY’s ACONYX Unify is a suite of Mobile Unified Communications applications with rich in-context capabilities that mobile/LTE carriers, VoIP service providers, Cable MSOs and Cloud providers can deploy across heterogeneous networks. Enabling rapid and cost-effective service delivery, the ACONYX Unify 2.0 application suite includes:
- Business Mobile Connect – features Voice/video Calling, Business Features, Auto Attendant, Fixed-Mobile Convergence
- Converged Messaging – provides IM/Presence, Voice/video messaging, Visual voice/video mail features
- Multimedia Conferencing/Collaboration – enables Desktop/Mobile Voice/video conferencing, Screen sharing
- Smart Clients – WebRTC/HTML5 based RCS web clients for PCs/Macs and RCS Smartphone/ Tablets clients for iOS/Android which are optimized for BYOD models
With ACONYX Unify, service providers can capitalize on enterprise mobility trends by delivering innovative, revenue generating business features and services to SMBs and Enterprises to expand new revenue streams, grow ARPU and differentiate from the competition. For end users, “In-context” or “Contextual” communications enrich the conversation and empower them to achieve better business results through use of presence information, file and image sharing, multimedia conferencing, whiteboards, screen-sharing and more.
ACONYX Unify is built on ACONYX CAS, AGNITY’s carrier-grade JSR-289 compliant platform to manage huge volumes with stability and scalability that telco environments demand. While WebRTC is easily amenable to P2P usage, ACONYX CAS acts as a gateway to offer the same flexibility and functionality interconnecting a private enterprise environment with the telecom world. The solution can also integrate with Enterprise PBX systems and carrier PSTN lines. The complete solution can be provided in a hosted cloud model accessible over WebRTC-enabled web browsers and smartphones by enterprise users.
“We are excited about WebRTC and our new solution ACONYX Unify taps its potential to make video communications intuitive and natural for end users”, said Sanjeev Chawla, President & CEO of AGNITY. “We have always focused on creating solutions that are open standards based and therefore interoperable with a variety of products available in the ecosystem. ACONYX Unify blends effortlessly in an operator’s infrastructure and takes IP-based multimedia communications to the next level. In the process, it empowers service providers to offer rich and converged business features to enterprise customers. We have already completed a few trial engagements of ACONYX Unify with a few large operators in the Americas and Asia, and looking forward to commercial deployments in the coming quarter.”
