WebConnect JAVA Media Processing


Wireless infrastructure software company Radisys has announced WebConnect JAVA, a JSR-309 compliant adapter which is compatible with the company's whole Media Resource Function (MRF) product family.

Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) application developers are now able to use Radisys WebConnect to control media processing capabilities for real-time services.

This is essentially a JSR-309 compliant adapter for virtualized media processing platforms. It may help create more media-rich applications scenarios with Java developers.

So how does it work? Radisys WebConnect translates JSR-309 media processing requests, in a Java EE environment, into Session Internet Protocol (SIP) and Media Server Markup Language (MSML RFC 5707) XML-based control commands — which are compatible with any Radisys MRF. The resulting integration is a solution that supports IP multimedia packet processing across both OTT and IMS architectures for a range of interactive services, including VoLTE, WebRTC, conferencing, and network transcoding use cases.

"Service Delivery Platforms (SDP) based on Java EE are increasingly being utilized to support real-time telecommunication services — particularly for OTT and WebRTC," said Ari Banerjee, Senior Analyst at Heavy Reading.

"The Java community defined JSR-309 as the media control interface for Java-based platforms, yet the scalability, virtualization, and platform options for JSR-309 media processing have been somewhat limited across the market. The entry of a media processing leader like Radisys adding JSR-309 compliance across its MRF platforms provides OTT service providers and mobile operators with a well-supported range of media processing options to choose from."

Real-time communication services have traditionally been developed, and deployed, on specialized application server platforms designed to IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) standards supporting SIP. However, there is now a growing trend to develop interactive communication services, particularly Over The Top (OTT) and WebRTC services, on web application servers based on traditional Internet communication and programming standards, such as Java.

"Adding support for JSR-309 was a simple decision as many of the leading web application server platforms on the market today are Java EE based,

"In addition, the world has far more computer programming professionals with expertise in Java programming than telecommunication service developers with expertise in SIP. Radisys WebConnect is focused on opening up this market by delivering first-class media processing capabilities to the broad community of IT professionals developing real-time communication services using Java platforms be they WebRTC, video, or audio based."
