IMS World Forum 2015 – Amsterdam NL – May 19, 2015 – Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), the services acceleration company, and WIT Software, a leading provider of rich and unified communications for mobile operators, today announced that they have partnered to deliver a deployment-ready solution that will enable mobile operators to roll-out VoLTE, Rich Communications Services (RCS) and WebRTC to their customers. The joint solution integrates WIT Software’s RCS and WebRTC application server platforms with Radisys’ MediaEngine™ portfolio of MRF products. The combined offering supports transcoding for web to native VoLTE voice and video calling, and is currently undergoing trial deployments with tier-one mobile operators in Asia.
WebRTC and RCS are two new technologies that are enabling communication service providers worldwide to deliver new services and revenue streams, while combating the growing threat of OTT alternatives. According to ABI Research, there will be 4.7B mobile WebRTC devices by 2018. Similarly, MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global RCS market to grow from $596.3M in 2013 to $5.75B in 2019.
“WIT Software provides a comprehensive end-to-end RCS solution, but we needed robust and scalable media processing and transcoding capabilities that would allow mobile operators to extend and interwork their existing 3G service offerings to the web with VoLTE, RCS and WebRTC services,” said Luis Silva, CEO, WIT Software. “Radisys’ MediaEngine products allow us to offer our customers a complete, deployment-ready solution that enables interactive communications across legacy and next-generation endpoint technology.”
“This important partnership with WIT Software extends our WebRTC and RCS ecosystem and helps create another end-to-end solution that mobile operators can seamlessly deploy today when they embrace our OneMRF strategy,” said Grant Henderson, vice president, MediaEngine and corporate marketing, Radisys. “Mobile operators need a real-time transcoding solution that can tear down interoperability barriers present between WebRTC, VoLTE and 3G endpoints, enabling advanced communication services to be delivered broadly and ubiquitously, irrespective of the endpoint/terminal. WIT Software is one of the most experienced companies in RCS, and the early traction and excitement we’ve seen in Asia for this integrated solution further validates this partnership.”
The joint solution will be showcased by WIT Software at IMS World Forum in the Netherlands, May 19-20. The solution will also be on exhibit at CommunicAsia in Singapore, June 2-5, both in the Radisys booth (inside U.S. Pavilion, Stand BL2-01), and by WIT Software (Stand BA3-10).
Radisys helps communications and content providers, and their strategic partners, create new revenue streams and drive cost out of their services delivery infrastructure. Radisys’ service aware traffic distribution platforms, real-time media processing engines and wireless access technologies enable its customers to maximize, virtualize and monetize their networks.
