RADVISION's SCOPIA Elite MCU Series Interoperable with BroadSoft BroadWorks
RADVISION, a technology and end-to-end solution provider for unified visual communications, announced the interoperability of both the SCOPIA Elite MCU Series and SCOPIA iVIEW Management Suite with BroadSoft's BroadWorks voice application server.
The BroadWorks platform delivers a broad range of unified communications services including video, voice, hosted call center, conferencing, messaging and mobility for businesses and consumers worldwide.
RADVISION SCOPIA Elite MCU is a flexible multi-party conferencing solution that supports video systems utilizing both H.323 and SIP with connectivity for the latest HD video conferencing, telepresence and mobile devices.
The combined solution enables service providers to offer a comprehensive portfolio of UC solutions integrated with video, voice and content for businesses and consumers worldwide. It allows them to incorporate Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based virtualized and hosted visual communications as part of their unified communications (UC) platforms.
The SCOPIA iVIEW Management Suite software provides service providers with the intelligence for a distributed service and virtualizes conferencing capabilities. As a result, BroadSoft partners and customers will benefit from redundancy, network traffic optimization, resource management along with very high scalability for cloud-based services.
"We are pleased that RADVISION's SCOPIA platform has completed interoperability with BroadWorks," said David Bukovsky, vice president, products, BroadSoft, in a statement. "The SCOPIA solution for BroadWorks offers our service provider customers the opportunity to further differentiate their SIP-based video solutions."
SCOPIA iVIEW also offers a comprehensive Application Programming Interface (API) enabling third parties to implement an operator free, self-service web portal for users to easily set up ad-hoc and scheduled meetings.
"Hosted video conferencing services are becoming an increasingly attractive option for businesses today, and offering high quality video as part of their service is a must for service providers of all sizes," said Roberto Giamagli, general manager of RADVISION's Video Business Unit, in a statement.
"Adding the SCOPIA platform to BroadWorks enables service providers to easily and cost-effectively deploy and manage scalable standards-based video conferencing and deliver cloud-based services to their customers," Giamagli added.
Recently RADVISION announced that its revenues for the second quarter of 2011 were $18.1 million. Compared with $23.3 million in the second quarter of 2010, this signifies the operating loss of $6.4 million on a GAAP basis and $5.5 million on a non-GAAP basis.
