Unisys has announced its new open communications platform, Ensemble OXP. This is an open, multi-service foundation that provides flexibility to service providers who want to bundle next-generation subscriber services for various market segments while reducing total cost of ownership.
The Unisys Communications Ensemble OXP integrates new services into the carrier's infrastructure, enabling elimination of service silos, faster time-to-market and reductions in service delivery costs.
The company is working with the France Telecom Group to develop and deliver next-generation services to its subscribers. The two companies are in the process of implementing voice-activated voicemail services for easier navigation of mobile applications.
Carriers and operators can offer a wide range of revenue-generating, IP-based messaging services including visual voicemail, video call answer, video content services, speech services, and content delivery. The platform allows for notifications through a variety of channels including multimedia messaging (MMS), short message service (SMS), instant messaging (IM) and e-mail.
The Unified Communications gives users access to messages from multiple channels, merging Web, fixed line, wireless and other sources under a single interface, while Call Management Services offer personalization of when and how subscribers communicate using the capabilities of presence and location service solutions.
The Ensemble OXP includes a VXML-based Unified Communications application (voice/fax/e-mail), an open framework including unified message store, directory server, notification server and media server.
The company says that in addition to its work with Orange, it has deployed various components of the Communications Ensemble solution portfolio for Vodafone Australia and Telefonica Moviles Mexico.
