BEA Systems Announces Joint ISV Solutions Designed To Accelerate Adoption of New Services Based On Next-Generation Service Delivery Architectures
Partners Build Innovative Applications on BEA WebLogic SIP Server;
BEA Continues to Expand Global ISV Partner Ecosystem for BEA WebLogic Communications Platform with Addition of Several New Partners
BEAWORLD 2006, Beijing—Dec. 14, 2006—BEA Systems, Inc., a world leader in enterprise and communications infrastructure software today announced two significant milestones in its telecommunications partner strategy. First, several new and existing ISV partners, including Exit Games, Intervoice (Nasdaq: INTV), Iperia, IP Unity, Mofinity, Protel and RadiSys have developed innovative applications on BEA WebLogic® SIP Server. Secondly, BEA has expanded its global ISV partner ecosystem for the BEA WebLogic® Communications Platform product family to include several new partners worldwide. These new partners include the aforementioned Exit Games, Mofinity, Protel and RadiSys, as well as Bridgewater Systems, Centile, Convergin, NGC Systems, Telenity and Vantrix.
The applications and completer technologies delivered by ISV partners are a key contributor to the success of BEA WebLogic® Communications Platform products, which consists of BEA WebLogic® SIP Server and BEA WebLogic® Network Gatekeeper. New and innovative applications and services based on these products can lead to enhanced revenue opportunities for telecom network operators. Network operators can now leverage a more diverse and compelling ecosystem of new applications such as conferencing, ring-back tones, data collaboration, mobile multi-player gaming multimedia messaging and IVR applications running on BEA WebLogic SIP Server to help increase revenue and drive customer loyalty.
“The next-generation of telecom networks will not be successful without a broad portfolio of compelling new services and applications to drive incremental revenue and customer loyalty,” said Brian Partridge, senior analyst, Yankee Group. “BEA recognizes the importance of a strong ISV partner ecosystem and has shown a strong ability to attract a wide and diverse set of ISVs worldwide to the benefit of its customers.”
These solutions powered by BEA WebLogic SIP Server underscore the importance of a unified, service-oriented IMS-NGN Services Layer architecture, where new applications can leverage the convergence of IT and the telecom networks. By implementing an integrated IMS-NGN Services Layer architecture based on ISV applications and BEA WebLogic Communications Platform products, and relying on a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) paradigm for rapid service composition and feature re-use, network operators can prepare themselves to become more agile, responsive, and competitive in the rapid-changing marketplace.
“The worlds of the Internet, SOA, and communications are converging and this brings new challenges and opportunities for network operators, service providers, and enterprises,” said Mike McHugh, vice president and general manager, BEA WebLogic Communications Platform. “By partnering with a global ecosystem of industry leading ISVs, we are helping to facilitate the creation of a powerful portfolio of converged services, which can help in a phased transition from legacy networks to next-generation service delivery architectures.”
ISV Ecosystem Expansion Designed to Help Bring New Revenue Opportunities for Network Operators
BEA is committed to engaging with these and other ISV partners worldwide to support the porting, integration and development of new, and existing, SIP-IMS applications on BEA WebLogic SIP Server. By delivering applications that are designed to run on, or integrate with, BEA WebLogic SIP Server, BEA and its ISV partners are collaborating to help telecom network operators increase revenue through new, innovative service opportunities. The converged IT-SOA-IMS service infrastructure technologies in BEA WebLogic SIP Server and BEA WebLogic Network Gatekeeper are designed to provide ISV partners with a uniquely differentiating, and powerful foundation for creating compelling new application products, and partners can also benefit from BEA’s market breadth and industry reach.
Many of these ISV partners have already ported and integrated with BEA WebLogic Communications Platform products. The portfolio of joint solutions created by BEA and its ISV partners is designed to offer powerful business value for customers, and broaden the set of features which can be re-used, and re-composed using SOA principles, to create additional new services based on BEA WebLogic Communications Platform products.
