GENBAND Adds Dialogic to CPaaS Ecosystem

GENBAND has added Dialogic to its Kandy communications platform as a service (CPaaS) ecosystem.

By integrating Dialogic PowerMedia XMS, GENBAND has enhanced Kandy’s ability to support an increasing number of video interactions such as video conferencing, transcoding, recording and other video functions across an array of video formats,including in the Kandy Wrappers (ready-to-deploy pre-developed apps), and mobile over-the-top (OTT) applications.

“With demand for video becoming a larger part of everyday life and seeing integrations into real time web applications increase, it’s great to enhance our offerings with a scalable and flexible software-based media resource that supports the broad range of video codecs and use cases envisioned by developers,” said David Ittner, vice president of engineering for video applications at GENBAND.

“By working with Dialogic and PowerMedia XMS to further enrich our video media resources, we gained a technology partner with extensive video expertise, which helps to accelerate our development and reduce our time to market.”

Dialogic’s PowerMedia XMS is a software-only media server that enables standards-based, real-time multimedia communications solutions for IMS, MRF, enterprise, and WebRTC applications on premise or in the cloud.

“We share a vision with GENBAND of increasing adoption of video in a wide variety of applications, requiring unique expertise in software-based scalable video streaming, recording, and conversion,” noted Jim Machi, SVP of product management and marketing at Dialogic.  “We are excited that Dialogic and the PowerMedia XMS software media server are a key part of the Kandy ecosystem and we see the combination as a significant differentiator for developers building innovative video-enabled applications based on Kandy.”
