5/4/2004 - NMS Communications (NASDAQ: NMSS) announced that its PacketMedia HMP media processing software is available now to ISVs as well as to OEMs and telecom solution developers who want to realize significant benefits in flexibility and substantial cost savings in their development and support cycle as well as throughout their supply chain operations. These benefits derive from software that runs on general purpose PCs with standard operating systems like Windows and Linux, performing all the functions previously only available with the addition of special-purpose hardware. With PacketMedia HMP, application developers can create their application once and deliver it in wide range of systems, sizes and configurations, for the lowest TCO, or total cost of ownership. PacketMedia HMP is the most recent example of NMS' commitment to enabling the hardware-to- software transformation of much of the telecom industry.
"The telecom revolution is finally here," said Mark Winther, group vice president, Worldwide Telecommunications, at IDC Research. "The move from hardware to software is changing the rules for operators, application developers and ultimately, the telecom sector as a whole. Technologies like PacketMedia HMP change the rules, allowing both enterprise and carrier organizations to cost effectively and quickly deploy new services, without serious hardware investments or network disruptions. This is the new face of telecom development."
As part of the Open AccessTM product framework, PacketMedia HMP gives developers 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" including general-purpose PCs. Developers can build highly reliable applications that scale to handle from 8 to thousands of IP sessions, providing the industry's most cost-effective solution even at the lowest densities — making VoIP offerings an affordable reality, not only for service providers but also for small and mid-size businesses.
PacketMedia HMP supports the development of IP-based applications that can be deployed in heterogeneous PSTN and IP or IP-only networks, extending the life of current solutions and easing circuit-to-packet migration. Additionally, using the Natural AccessTM development environment, new NMS customers will quickly appreciate the complete, easy-to-use development environment, while current NMS customers will have the benefit of a familiar development tool.
