NMS Debuts Open Access Framework for Voice, Video and Data Services

12/10/2003 - NMS Communications (Nasdaq:NMSS) announced its Open Access framework of products, platforms and services for next-generation communications solutions. Offering standards-based IP-enabled products that work in today's heterogeneous networks and deliver superior scalability with blade-to-system versatility, the Open Access framework encompasses all of the functionality for developing and deploying rich applications and innovative communications services such as IP conferencing, mobile video, speech-activated services and wireless entertainment.

Open Access is also the first product framework to offer application developers and OEMs a broad range of delivery vehicles to match different business models. Open Access uses open interfaces and supports industry standards, providing developers and OEMs the freedom to ship fully configured systems or software-only solutions using commercially available platforms.

"A much anticipated shift has finally taken place in the next generation telecom space," noted Tom Valovic, IDC's Program Director for IP Telephony. "Applications have finally emerged as the primary driver for next-generation products. However, systems vendors and application developers alike still need to intensify their focus on building more open and flexible systems as a prelude to innovation and more advanced capabilities. With this announcement NMS is clearly well positioned to help the industry achieve these goals."

NMS also announced PacketMediaTM Host-based Media Processing (HMP) software, the newest addition to Open Access. As part of the Open Access framework, PacketMedia HMP gives developers and OEMs the freedom and flexibility to build high-value media processing applications in a single unified development environment and then run and deploy on their "silicon of choice" either PacketMedia HMP software on general-purpose PCs or NMS' powerful digital signal processing (DSP) platforms.

Open Access reinforces NMS' 20+ years of technology leadership, record of industry firsts, and dedication to helping its customers create and deploy high-value, ROI-creating applications and services such as IP-based contact centers and business communications, multimedia messaging, video communications and voice security. Examples of telecom innovations that NMS has enabled include:

"Customers with whom we've previewed the Open Access framework and roadmap have been tremendously enthusiastic about the business benefits they see, including technology with clear, rapid ROI and products that can be delivered in ways that match their evolving business models," said Bob Schechter, chairman and CEO, NMS Communications. "With the telecom industry re-awakening, companies that design, develop or deploy innovative solutions for the enterprise or network have tremendous opportunity ahead and, at NMS, we're excited to be able to give those companies the means to capture that opportunity."
