LignUp Enhances its Communications Application Server

LignUp announced Release 4.0 of its LignUp Communications Application Server, which enables telephony Web services deployed within enterprise service-oriented architectures (SOA) and existing telecom infrastructures. LignUp 4.0 features 125 call control and media control functions exposed through LignUp Communications Web Services. The Web services are implemented by the J2EE-compliant1 LignUp Communications Integration Server, a new component of the LignUp Communications Application Server.

The standards-based (SIP, RTP, HTTP, SOAP, WSDL2) LignUp Communications Application Server allows developers to use their favorite programming languages and development environments to incorporate IP-based communications into Web applications, Web portals, business processes, mashups, blogs and wikis.

LignUp said its 4.0 enables the integration of communications into applications using LignUp Communications Web Services for fine-grained access to telephony, real-time media, interactive voice response (IVR), text-to-speech (TTS), voicemail, unified messaging and presence capabilities. LignUp 4.0-powered applications can be used to ring any phone -- IP phones, mobile devices or fixed land line handsets -- independent of the enterprise PBX, carrier switch or network to which they are attached. By extending the reach of voice-enabled applications and services to a broad community of consumer and business users, LignUp 4.0 is empowering enterprises, Web 2.0 companies, and service providers to realize the promise of communication-enabled business processes (CEBP) for greater personalization, productivity, collaboration and efficiency.
