Dialogic is rolling out wholesale real-time communications applications to its service provider customers through the acquisition of APEX Communications.
The portfolio includes a variety of applications that can be customized to meet the needs of operators around the world, including adding video to existing voice solutions, migrating existing voice/video solutions to WebRTC-based solutions, and/or IMS/VoLTE-based solutions, and various forms of IoT communication applications.
“The competitive world is changing rapidly for service providers, and they need to be able to respond quickly, working with platforms and vendors that provide them the flexibility and extensibility to evolve, compete and win,” said Bill Crank, president and CEO of Dialogic. “Through the acquisition of APEX Communications, Dialogic can now supply ‘mission-critical’ real-time communications applications directly to our customers. Additionally, we’re investing in resources to provide full application development customization of existing applications to meet the needs of customers.”
APEX Communications has been a long-time media processing partner of Dialogic and is a global real-time communications applications supplier. “We are very excited to be joining Dialogic as a key element of their strategy to deliver applications to service providers,” said Ben Levy, former CEO of APEX Communications, who is now vice president of applications at Dialogic. “We’ve been doing just that for many years. We chose Dialogic because we felt its financial condition and global reach will enable applications to be delivered and well supported around the globe going forward.”
With inclusion of real-time communications applications in the portfolio, Dialogic also has introduced new branding to reflect the expanded market focus of the company.
