Includes SIP session replication, rolling upgrade and diameter support
Sun Microsystems has released GlassFish Communications Server 2.0, its open source telco-grade application server that offers foundation for a service delivery platform for the telecommunications industry.
A Java EE and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) convergence platform, the new GlassFish Communications Server has new features, including SIP session replication, rolling upgrade and diameter support, the company said.
According to Sun Microsystems, the version 2.0, which is based on the latest version of the GlassFish Enterprise Server 2.1.1, helps service providers and network operators accelerate the adoption of an IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) architecture by offering a standards-based platform that simplifes the development of value-added applications and services that drive new revenue models including VoIP, IPTV, virtual PBX, and fixed mobile convergence.
The new version expands platform support to include AIX 6.1 with IBM JDK 6. Users of GlassFish Enterprise Server will benefit from enterprise reliability and performance with less complexity, and will be able to deliver new services in less time, the company claims.
The open source version of Sun GlassFish Communications Server software is developed as part of Project Sailfin. It has been downloaded more than 50,000 times in the past 12 months with a community of more than 250 developers, the Sun Microsystems said.
Mark Herring, vice president of software infrastructure marketing at Sun Microsystems, said: “For the past two years, we’ve been working with customers and a great developer community to make the GlassFish Communications Server one of the best high performance, standards-based Java EE and SIP convergence platforms available today. With the new software, customers will be able to more easily build enterprise applications with integrated communications capabilities, and drive new revenue opportunities.”
