Dialogic Announces PowerMedia XMS 3.0 Server
Dialogic has announced the release of its PowerMedia XMS 3.0 server, allowing for advanced WebRTC applications.
“We are thrilled to achieve new density and scalability milestones with PowerMedia XMS 3.0,” said Jim Machi, senior vice president of product management and marketing at Dialogic. “The integrated media resource function and media resource broker (MRF/MRB) solutions offer what we see as industry-leading scalable media resources for conferencing, announcements, recording, and other advanced functions required by communications service providers and enterprise application developers.”
PowerMedia support over 2,000 simultaneous voice and 450 video sessions at once supporting IMS, MRF, enterprise, and WebRTC.
Dialogic has extended the software server’s recording capabilities, as well as HTTP file transfer and fax support. The new version has “bump in the wire” transcoding and enhanced recording abilities. This will allow easy conversion of video formats while making it possible for companies to comply with laws such as Dodd-Frank requiring companies to record conversation.
The solution shows how WebRTC is becoming a mainstream technology. Clients don’t have to install any other software. They just have to use a modern browser such as Chrome or Firefox.
It’s the back end that needs to be improved before more businesses move their conferencing over to WebRTC. They just have to use a modern browser such as Chrome or Firefox. The only problem is that WebRTC primarily works on browser-to-browser connections.
PowerMedia XMS 3.0 looks poised to create powerful applications. One of the company’s clients, SaferMobility, is already taking advantage of the new features.
“As a developer building advanced WebRTC security applications based on Dialogic PowerMedia XMS, we’re looking forward to working with XMS 3.0, and using many of the enhancements in the new release,” SaferMobility CEO Kevin W. Mullins said. “An area of particular value is the new WebRTC codecs and scaling capabilities that the PowerMedia Media Resource Broker (MRB) brings.”
