Radware, the provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced the launch of the newest addition to its application delivery product suite, SIP Director. A first-to-market solution with a fully SIP-aware application delivery controller (ADC), SIP Director is based on the company’s award winning AppDirector and designed specifically for SIP-based applications.
SIP deployment continues to grow rapidly with converged Web and VoIP applications including application/feature servers, VoiceMail, IVRs, messaging servers, conference applications, media servers, call center applications and 911 services. As SIP adoption increases, SIP becomes more and more mission critical thus, creating a need for vendors and system integrators to provide carriers and operators with solutions supporting carrier-grade requirements. This requirement imposes a great burden on application and system development not typically addressed in the product scope but left to be handled in the system integration phase.
“Radware’s SIP Director addresses the needs of today’s telecommunications service providers that are seeking ways to constantly evolve their service offerings in order to remain competitive,” said Elisabeth Rainge, Program Director, VoIP Infrastructure, IDC. “By leveraging advanced layer 4-7 policies SIP Director enables service providers to optimize VoIP and other multimedia traffic flows through granular classification and control.”
Radware’s SIP Director guarantees SIP service delivery. The product stems from 10 years of experience developing innovative products in the ADC space encompassing high availability, optimized performance and complete security. Designed with vendors, NEPs, system integrators and carriers in mind, SIP Director was developed in response to the need to address SIP-specific carrier-grade and security requirements and answers the need of collaboration applications for a converged Web and VoIP application delivery.
“SIP Director was developed with current customer requirements in-mind specifically for VoIP/SIP-based solutions.” stated Amir Peles, CTO Radware. “SIP Director provides the most scalable and carrier-grade performance on the market with field proven deployments. It expands our leading carrier product suite of solutions opening new and exciting opportunities for extending our market reach.”
“We at deltathree are excited about Radware’s new SIP-based ADC solution,” stated Amos Shahar, Director of Engineering & Network Operations, deltathree. “By integrating it into our SIP-based platform, we benefit from its carrier-grade capabilities. Using Radware’s SIP Director will enable us to significantly reduce time-to-market and development efforts.”
