BEA Systems and BroadSoft Form Strategic Alliance to Deliver Innovative, Next Generation Telecom Services

Core News Facts: 1. BEA Systems and BroadSoft Announced a Strategic Alliance That Includes Joint Development, Sales and Marketin

SAN JOSE, Calif. and GAITHERSBURG, Md., Jan. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BEA Systems, Inc. , a world leader in enterprise and communications infrastructure software, and BroadSoft, Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced a broad-ranging strategic alliance. This alliance includes joint development, sales, and marketing of solutions that will integrate the BroadSoft(R) BroadWorks(R) suite of VoIP applications with the BEA WebLogic(R) Communications Platform product family.

The BEA-BroadSoft partnership is a multi-year, multi-phased strategic alliance. Under the alliance, the two companies are conducting joint sales and marketing efforts, and BroadSoft has already begun to integrate and port the BroadWorks software platform with BEA WebLogic(R) SIP Server.

BEA and BroadSoft are teaming up to provide service providers the ability to offer industry-leading applications over an innovative, standards-based platform. The combination of BroadWorks software and BEA WebLogic SIP Server -- a converged Java EE-SIP-IMS application server -- will enable service providers to deploy revenue-generating services with a rich set of VoIP capabilities. It will also be designed to provide a flexible and extensible architecture that will work in an all-IP and IMS environment in the future.

"This alliance brings together two industry-leading telecom application platforms, which will allow service providers to deliver BroadWorks-based fixed and mobile VoIP services with IMS enablers and capabilities that can be hosted on BEA WebLogic SIP Server," said Ken Rokoff, vice president of business development at BroadSoft. "Until today, no VoIP application platform in the market has integrated with a converged Java EE-SIP-IMS application server. This unique offering can help drive new service revenues for service providers."

"Service providers are demanding VoIP solutions that can shorten time-to-market for enhanced communication services over NGN and IMS architectures," said Mike McHugh, vice president and general manager, BEA WebLogic Communications Platform, BEA Systems. "By bringing the BroadSoft BroadWorks solution together with the BEA WebLogic Communications Platform product family, BEA and BroadSoft will provide a feature-rich set of VoIP service enablers designed to help operators implement new revenue-generating services more rapidly and more cost-effectively."

The BEA WebLogic Communications Platform product family, including BEA WebLogic SIP Server, is a key component of the BEA SOA 360 platform. Announced in September at BEAWorld 2006 in San Francisco, the BEA SOA 360 platform is designed to deliver the industry's most unified SOA platform and spans all three of BEA's product families, AquaLogic(R), WebLogic(R), Tuxedo and the company's newly unveiled SOA collaborative tooling environment, BEA Workspace 360. (See Sept. 19, 2006, press release titled "BEA Announces SOA 360; Industry's most unified SOA Platform to transform and optimize business.")

BroadSoft's IMS-compliant BroadWorks platform provides a comprehensive range of VoIP applications, including hosted PBX, IP Centrex, mobile PBX, business trunking and residential broadband services fully integrated into a single VoIP application platform. BroadWorks provides these applications with the reliability, redundancy, scalability and regulatory capabilities required to deliver carrier-class service.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
