Convedia Goes Enterprise

Convedia Corp. says it will make its IP media server software available for integration into the servers, routers, and switches commonly used in enterprise networks.

We have dominated the carrier market, and now we are ready to extend our media processing technology into the enterprise,” says the company’s marketing VP and co-founder, Grant Henderson. The majority of the five-year-old company's business has come from the voice-over-IP (VOIP) deployments of carriers.

Media servers store and process recorded content used in IP voice networks, which nowadays can include anything from simple audio announcements to streaming video in conferencing applications.

Up to now, Convedia’s media server software has been available only inside the company's purpose-built devices. The software will now be baked into such things as ACTA blades, software-accelerator products, Linux servers, routers, switches, and gateways, the company says.

Henderson says this disaggregation of Convedia's core software will widen the company's market considerably. “We can now offer our media processing technology to customers regardless of their network type, regardless of the application, regardless of protocol, and independent of platform,” he says.
