Dialogic (NASDAQ: DLGC), a leading provider of products and technologies that enable operators to provide – and subscribers to enjoy – an enhanced mobile experience, today announced that The Tolly Group, an independent testing agency, has awarded its performance certification to Dialogic® PowerMedia™ Extended Media Server (PowerMedia XMS) Release 1.1. PowerMedia XMS is a powerful software media server that enables real-time audio and video communications solutions for mobile and broadband environments on common datacenter server infrastructure. The Tolly Group testing confirmed that PowerMedia XMS 1.1 meets or exceeds criteria in areas of media server density, host CPU and memory utilization, call processing, media latency and voice quality as defined by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) for media latency and the PESQ algorithm for voice quality. In today’s networks, media servers are used to deliver high density value added network services such as conferencing, messaging and IVR applications.
"We are pleased to have worked with Dialogic to conduct these benchmark testing reports on PowerMedia XMS," said Kevin Tolly, founder of The Tolly Group. "For PowerMedia XMS 1.1, Tolly was able to successfully measure and document areas of critical media server performance for conferencing services including call rates, latency and audio quality at a session density of 2,000 channels." The full Tolly Group test report can be found here.
Although demand for audio conferencing minutes has continued to grow worldwide, competitive pricing pressure has led to a decline in revenue per minute, putting severe margin pressure on service providers. Conference service providers are seeking cost effective, flexible media processing that also unlocks the profit potential of video and broadband mobility, while efficiently delivering core audio conferencing sessions. PowerMedia XMS can help reduce the cost of deployment and operation of audio and video conferencing services because it runs on common datacenter server infrastructure (including cloud-based computing infrastructure) which can be readily scaled as needed.
