LONDON -- As the next telecoms revolution opens up infinite possibilities with the advent of SIP and IMS applications, Appium, one of the leading providers of next-generation telecommunications applications platforms, today announces the launch of version 4.0 of its Appium-XWay service platform. The new platform from Appium is designed to enable all SIP/IMS technologies while at the same time allowing operators to significantly reduce costs while delivering next generation SIP and IMS services.

Designed to provide a comprehensive set of utilities that enable the creation, deployment and management of telecoms services, the Appium-XWay 4.0 offers a multi-layer environment that allows the application level management of converged telecoms services.

A key feature of the Appium-XWay 4.0 is the capability to support both IMS and Web Services; the platform will support IMS services using the IMS defined interfaces for service control, charging and subscriber data while it allows for proprietary and standard Web Services implementations with a number of different network capabilities including IMS/SIP, OSA/Parlay and SOAP among others.

The Appium-XWay 4.0 makes integrating with IMS networks easy. It enables operators to offer exciting and value added services blending voice, video and messaging – on any device and at any time. The new SIP/IMS module allows existing Appium customers to extend their Appium-XWay platform into the IMS and thereby get convergence between legacy and NGN networks.

Similarly, using the Web Services functionality in the Appium-XWay, operators can tailor services to customers’ specific needs with compelling service experiences in a very short time, and at a low cost. With Web Services interfaces, operators can then open their network to Service Providers, or to enterprise customers, enabling them to create many new services and drive traffic for everyone. The Appium-XWay becomes a telecom enabler for SOA providing Web Service interface for capabilities like call control.

The new version of the Appium-XWay service platform offers telecoms operators a number of additional capabilities including the ability to converge and migrate existing applications to SIP/IMS as well as enabling the creation of a number of new SIP/IMS applications.

Eric Lundquist, CEO of Appium, commented, “We’re delighted to announce the launch of the next version of Appium’s highly successful Appium-XWay service platform, the Appium-XWay 4.0. Providing telecoms operators with a single platform that can address all their requirements will allow them to plan for the next generation of services while at the same time providing the user with a superb user experience”.
