Solid's Embedded Data Manager Powers Sonim Push-To-Talk Solutions

10/3/2003 - Solid Information Technology Corp., the first provider of an Autonomic Data Management Platform, announced that it was selected by Sonim Technologies as the embedded data manager for its standards-based Instant Communications Solution (ICS). Sonim is the application leader in enabling today’s wireless data networks to deliver high-margin voice services such as Push-To-Talk (PTT).

“The next generation of IP-based voice applications offer subscribers with rich, personalized features seamlessly integrated with the existing carrier-grade service offerings,” said Wade Vesey, chief marketing officer of Sonim Technologies. “Solid’s sophisticated data management platform has made it much simpler and faster for us to develop best-of-breed Push-To-Talk solutions for mobile operators.”

The Solid Autonomic Data Management Platform manages the control data in the Sonim ICS, providing carrier-grade high availability. At the core of the platform is a pair of streamlined relational database management systems, with standard interfaces enabling fast customization and integration. The platform is closely integrated within Sonim’s solution, moving data automatically, reliably and recoverably between all elements. Its unique hybrid in-memory/on-disk design helps achieve the superior Push-To-Talk performance at a compelling low cost of ownership.

“Sonim’s ICS product is a shining example of the benefits our customers derive from adopting an autonomic data management solution,” said Jussi Harvela, president and chief executive officer of Solid Information Technology. “Our in-memory technology gives them the data management speed they require, SmartFlow gives them the data distribution they need, and our high availability solution gives them the reliability they demand. We are pleased to be the provider of the data manager embedded in this solution, enabling the first standards-based Push-To-Talk experience.”
