Advanced, full-featured open media platform

Comverse has launched the new version of its Netcentrex Open Media Platform (OMP), an advanced, full-featured, standards-based media platform combining Intelligent Peripheral and Media Resource Function (MRF) capabilities on the same platform.


An Intelligent Peripheral, also known as the Specialized Resource Function, is located in the service provider's core network and provides all the resources required for applications such as network announcements, prepaid calling cards, wireless Centrex (virtual PBX), toll-free numbers and wake-up calls, plus advanced features such as speech recognition, text-to-speech and VoiceXML script execution.


The OMP is an ideal replacement solution for aging Intelligent Peripherals and provides a first step in the migration to an IMS network, with an IMS MRF on the same platform.
