BEDFORD, Mass. -- Acme Packet today announced two new products – the Net-Net® Interactive Session Recorder (ISR) and the Net-Net® Application Session Controller (ASC). These additions expand the Net-Net® product family, enabling enterprises, contact centers and service providers to record IP sessions and integrate live and recorded IP voice, video and unified communications (UC) into Web 2.0 business applications to ensure regulatory compliance, improve customer service, increase efficiency and reduce costs.

Organizations today are straining to keep pace with the rapid transformation from traditional TDM-based telephony to UC, and to integrate IP communications into business processes and applications. Acme Packet’s Net-Net ISR and Net-Net ASC help businesses overcome these challenges by streamlining and accelerating the deployment of cost-effective solutions for regulatory compliance and communications-enabled business processes.

Businesses and consumers are rapidly adopting new modes of communication using IP voice, video, instant messaging and UC. Many organizations are required by law to record certain conversations with customers, business partners and the general public. While there are established methods for recording voice calls in traditional telephony networks, there are few cost-effective solutions for large scale recording of IP sessions. In addition, with the widespread adoption of SIP trunking services by enterprises and contact centers, service providers are uniquely positioned to offer cloud-based IP communications services including large scale session recording.

The Net-Net ISR is a complete, software-based IP session recording solution designed to overcome the numerous challenges associated with capturing, securing, archiving and managing interactive session recordings in IP telephony and UC for regulatory compliance and quality assurance purposes. Traditional voice-only call recording systems are hardware-intensive, have capacity limitations, and can be complex to install and manage. The Net-Net ISR is based on an open, active recording architecture that significantly increases session capacity and eliminates complex PBX and IVR interconnections. It also includes an integrated media server to simplify deployment and reduce costs. In addition, the Net-Net ISR offers flexible Web 2.0 APIs that enable application developers to precisely control session recordings and to easily integrate session recording into business applications.

Organizations today are leveraging the Internet and Web services to rapidly deploy new applications on industry standard platforms at reduced cost and lower development expense. Web 2.0 developers are accustomed to abstraction layers that hide the complexities of various elements in the underlying computing, storage and Web services infrastructure, but this has been missing for IP communications infrastructure.

The Net-Net ASC is a software platform deployed as a middleware solution that enables enterprises and service providers to streamline business processes by integrating applications with IP communications. With the Net-Net ASC, businesses can be more efficient, improve productivity and better serve customers by adding interactive voice, video, instant messaging and multimedia communications to applications.
