AdventNet's Agent Toolkit Enhances Development of SoftServer Applications Broker
Boulder, CO., Dec. 12, 2001
SandCherry Networks and AdventNet today announced an OEM / distribution agreement, which includes the use of AdventNet's Agent Toolkit Java/JMX Edition in the newest release of the SoftServer 2.0 platform. Through the use of the Agent Toolkit, SandCherry's SoftServer platform is able to seamlessly scale applications across networked systems and quickly create smart, lightweight SNMP standards-based network management solutions for communications service providers (CSPs). Flexible management, including the integration, deployment and enhancement of disparate next-generation application services and media resources is a key component to the SoftServer design and functionality.
"We view AdventNet's Agent Toolkit as a productivity enhancing technology, enabling faster and more efficient development of our SoftServer platform," said Christian Militeau, SandCherry's vice president of engineering. "By working together, SandCherry and AdventNet can deliver the right solution to deploy and manage new value-added next-generation media-based services".
"We are excited to partner with and provide SandCherry the technology to build standards based network management solutions for communication service providers and enterprises", said Sekar Vembu, vice president of product strategy and management at AdventNet. "We are also glad that SandCherry benefited from enhanced developer productivity and reduction in time to market by using the AdventNet Agent Toolkit".
SandCherry's SoftServer platform, which serves as an applications broker, integrates, manages and simplifies deployment of next-generation services and applications such as voice-activated dialing, voice portals, unified messaging, and voice-enabled conferencing. CSPs are racing to implement these types of services as they compete for new sources of revenue. By enabling faster, easier rollout of services on a large scale, the SoftServer increases the revenue potential from new services. The platform is designed to be a key strategic tool, providing CSPs with quick access to potential new revenue sources and detailed information on customer usage and preferences. It speeds application integration and deployment, while providing increased control over disparate service elements, which can resolve costly management integration issues.
