Simplified Launches Open Services Application for Delivering Web Conferencing Services Across Any Network

Apr 04, 2001, 01:00 ET from Simplified

    BALTIMORE, April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Simplified(R), a leading software
 infrastructure company and provider of the first open services platform for
 the communications industry, announced at ISPCON 2001 today the release of its
 Web-based conferencing application for activating and managing conference
 calls and conference call accounts established across any communication
 network.
     Integrated into the Simplified Open Services Platform(TM) and built to run
 across all Simplified communication services, the new Web-conferencing
 software enables providers to differentiate their conference calling services
 by privately branding the service and by delivering over the Internet more
 control to their end customers.  Conference callers can view user-related
 activity of an ongoing call over an easy-to-use, Web-based interface that
 displays real-time call status, up-to-the-second call charges, a caller
 participation roster, and the controls to activate and recharge accounts.
     By incorporating the Simplified Open Services Platform and services like
 Web-conference calling into an open network strategy, service providers can
 adopt an efficient e-commerce business model for delivering and managing
 converged voice and data services.  In addition, providers can increase
 revenue, reduce infrastructure costs and scale to meet new demands all while
 giving end users more control over their own communications.
     "Service providers are realizing that to compete for today's
 communications customers they must adopt a forward-looking, open strategy that
 enables them to deliver both voice and data services across all access
 technologies," said James Cashiola, president and CEO of Simplified.  "Because
 we deliver open, flexible solutions, Simplified enables service providers to
 drastically cut infrastructure costs and increase average revenue per employee
 by creating new service opportunities and faster time-to-market for those
 services."
     The Simplified Web-conferencing application works across Simplified's
 entire family of open services solutions, including Simplified OpenVoice(TM),
 Simplified OpenCable(TM) and Simplified OpenWireless(TM).  These core
 applications enable providers to deliver direct or wholesale service offerings
 through telephony, cable or broadband wireless technologies.
     The Simplified Open Services Platform supports interoperability between
 voice and data hardware combining service management and network management
 capabilities.  Cisco, Lucent, Nortel, Nuera and other leading switches and
 routers are all managed and controlled from a single, intelligent software
 platform.  The Platform supports current service protocols including MGCP,
 H.323, SS7 and SIP and is available on a "pay-as-you-grow" pricing model that
 ensures sustainable growth and lower infrastructure costs.
