Dialogic PowerMedia XMS 4.0 enhances Media Resource Function and Media Resource Broker offerings
Mar 20, 2019
Parsippany, NJ (March 18, 2019) - Dialogic, a cloud-optimized applications and infrastructure solutions provider for global service providers, enterprises, and developers, announced today the general availability of Dialogic® PowerMedia® XMS Release 4.0 of the company’s media server software, adding a number of improvements that address the emerging needs of network operator, over-the-top (OTT), and enterprise markets.
A significant feature of the PowerMedia XMS 4.0 release is the high capacity and scalability of the Dialogic® PowerMedia® Media Resource Broker (MRB), which can now support up to 50 XMS instances and manage 100,000 total media server ports. This increased capacity is complemented by additional PowerMedia MRB features, such as improvements in failover handling, which provides for media continuity even during outages, safeguarding availability of media processing as applications expand in size.
XMS 4.0 also offers security improvements, enhancing instance security and providing applications with additional mechanisms to protect personal user information. New security features further include support for SIP TLS to secure the signaling, the ability to mask DTMF digits in logs that often carry personal information, configurable authentication of RESTful media and management APIs, support for XMS authentication to an HTTP server using client certificates, and a mechanism to protect personal information in temporary recordings, allowing the automatic deletion of all recordings associated with a call or conference once the call session ends.
In addition to these and other enhancements, XMS 4.0 introduces a cloud license server deployment option, which provides network-wide licensing with entitlements stored in the cloud for improved operational support. This licensing model can help reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) by allowing applications to easily share and re-allocate XMS resources as needed.
“Dialogic continues its tradition of software media server leadership and innovation with this major release of Power Media XMS,” stated Bill Crank, President and CEO of Dialogic. “Dialogic is second to none when it comes to performance, scalability, real-time video processing, and redundant media processing in public cloud environments, such as AWS. The new features added in XMS 4.0 help solidify our position as a market leader.”
Dialogic’s PowerMedia XMS is a highly scalable, 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. Built on 20+ years of software media processing experience, PowerMedia XMS is trusted by world-class service providers and large enterprises to power millions of rich media sessions.
