Solid BoostEngine Boosts Hotsip Multimedia Communications Engine

5/27/2004 - Solid Information Technology Corp., the first provider of an Autonomic Data Management Platform, and Hotsip AB, a leading provider of infrastructure and multimedia applications for large-scale SIP-enabled networks, announced the inclusion of Solid BoostEngine(TM) data manager in Hotsip’s SIP and Presence Server products for increased performance and carrier-grade availability.

Based on the open SIP standard (Session Initiation Protocol), Hotsip(R) Multimedia Communications Engine M2CE(TM) is a platform for real-time multimedia communication services. Solid BoostEngine, a standards-based SQL data manager designed for highest performance applications, ensures its carrier-grade availability and scalability. Hotsip products enable broadband telephony, video telephony, instant messaging, personal call handling and presence services over fixed and wireless IP networks.

“High availability and high performance are key enablers for reliable multimedia communication and presence services,” said Kenneth Gustafsson, CEO of Hotsip AB. “Based on thorough evaluation of both our existing data management system and several others on the market, Solid BoostEngine with CarrierGrade Option proved to offer unmatched performance and reliability. With Solid powering the next generation of Hotsip products, we look forward to introducing a line-up that will further strengthen our leading position in the market.”

“The adoption of Solid BoostEngine in Hotsip's SIP and Presence Server product lines is evidence of the perfect fit of Solid’s data management technology for challenging telecom solutions,” said Vesa Tuomisto, Vice President EMEA of Solid Information Technology. “The Solid in-memory database technology gives Hotsip the data management speed they require, and the high availability option gives them the reliability they demand. We are pleased to be selected as the provider of the data manager embedded in Hotsip's solutions to provide exciting IP-based multimedia applications.”

Solid BoostEngine, a part of Solid’s industry-first Autonomic Data Management platform, allows Hotsip to specify the location of data on disk or in memory, table by table, for optimal application performance and cost efficiency. High availability is ensured with Solid CarrierGrade Option, an add-on component to Solid BoostEngine that maintains a pair of hot standby databases in exact synchrony. In case of machine failure, applications can switch over to the surviving database in a few tens of milliseconds.

Hotsip SIP and Presence Server M2CE and the software client Hotsip(R) Active Contacts(TM) PC are targeted to service providers, system integrators and OEMs. Current Hotsip customers include Japanese Bell Net, the Nordic service provider TeliaSonera, and Ericsson.

Solid develops and markets the first carrier-grade Autonomic Data Management platform that delivers embedded data management, high availability and distributed data replication. Solid’s technology powers telecommunications infrastructure in fixed and wireless network devices; billing and management ystems for network elements; high-end network application servers, services and switching software; as well as telematics applications such as fleet management.
