Telecom Lead America: Radisys Corporation, a
provider of embedded wireless infrastructure solutions has announced the
integration of Radisys’ MPX-12000 broadband Multimedia Resource
Function (MRF) with the CounterPath Bria desktop and mobile
The integration is aimed at enhancing delivery of mobile
video services. The company said that together with CounterPath, it can now
offer mobile network operators, and their telecom equipment manufacturers
(TEMs), the key building blocks required for delivering multi-platform,
revenue-generating mobile video services.
Our new Radisys MPX-12000 will provide the scalability
and economics to offer profitable mobile video value-added services (VAS) in an
IMS architecture, but consumption of these services requires an easy and
efficient user interface on the mobile device,” said Manish Singh, CTO,
CounterPath’s Bria softphone applications provide a
compelling user experience, using the same IMS-based signaling and media
interfaces supported by the Radisys MPX-12000.
The company suggests that there is a need of high-efficiency
broadband MRF designed to support compelling and personalized real-time audio
and video services. And, such broadband MRF can help the mobile operators to
monetize the growing volume of mobile video traffic and increase average
revenue per user (ARPU).
By using MPX-12000, the company claims that TEMs can
avoid the complicated, time-consuming and expensive task of building broadband
MRFs from scratch to meet operators’ needs.
However, for operators to deploy a working solution, TEMs
also need to provide a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based client
application, available on a variety of mobile devices, to interwork with the
Radisys MRF in IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution architecture.
CounterPath’s Bria softphone application offers
mobile operators a consistent end-user interface for the consumption of mobile
video services on many of the industry’s standard platforms and devices,” said
Todd Carothers, SVP of Marketing and Products at CounterPath.
