NEC Launches “Service Convergence Integrated Platform”

NEC Corporation today announced the worldwide release of a new converged multimedia and SIP voice solution, “Service Convergence Integrated Platform” (SCI Platform). The SCI Platform enables VoIP and multimedia services, as well as offering a small start for operators such as fixed-line carriers or broadband internet operators for smooth transition to an IMS-based next generation network “NGN” in the future.

The company says their SCI Platform, realising carrier-class quality, leverages blade-server architecture, bundles a SIP server, an operation and maintenance server and service enablers into a compact, yet highly-scalable all-in-one set. Operators can utilise the new platform to rapidly develop and provide VoIP and multimedia services or value-added services such as Presence and IP messaging.

The demand for VoIP and multimedia services is growing worldwide as the deployment of DSL and optical fibre-based access continues to grow at an explosive rate. The SCI Platform consolidates and leverages the comprehensive power of NEC field-proven SIP server range and enables operators to effectively and promptly deliver value-added services to create new revenue. Moreover, the new platform also ensures fast and easy installation and reduces the initial investment required for NGN services.
