RVSN Recorded Volume Serial Number (Veritas)
RVSN Raketnye Voiska Strategicheskogo Naznacheniya (Russian strategic rocket forces) ) today announced it has licensed its Session Initiation Protocol (protocol) Session Initiation Protocol - (SIP) A very simple text-based application-layer control protocol. It creates, modifies, and terminates sessions with one or more participants. Such sessions include Internet telephony and multimedia conferences.
It is described in RFC 2543. (SIP) developers toolkit to QUALCOMM Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM QCOM Qualcomm, Inc. (stock symbol) ). Under this agreement, QUALCOMM is licensing RADVISION's award-winning SIP toolkit as the developer platform for QUALCOMM's Qvideophone(TM) videoconferencing solution, which is integrated into select QUALCOMM Mobile Station Modem(TM) (MSM MSM - Micronetics Standard MUMPS (TM)) chipsets and will initially target the CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) A method for transmitting simultaneous signals over a shared portion of the spectrum. The foremost application of CDMA is the digital cellular phone technology from QUALCOMM that operates in the 800 MHz band and 1.9 GHz PCS band. 2000(R) 1x-EV-DO-based mobile market.
The RADVISION SIP Developer Platform is a service creation platform that provides developers with an open, object-oriented architecture (coded in ANSI C) for building SIP-based communications products for the wireline, wireless, and mobile worlds. The platform features RADVISION's powerful standards-based SIP stack as well as multiple layers of APIs, from high-level APIs that hide the complexity of the protocol and enable rapid development of applications to mid and low level APIs that expose the intricacies of the protocol and allow for more detailed customization tuned to the specific requirements of the application or product. The RADVISION SIP Toolkit, a component of RADVISION's mobile/wireless developer suite of products, chosen by QUALCOMM, was specifically enhanced to meet the requirements of the mobile network including support of SigComp (Signaling Compression), mobile IP and multi homed host. The Toolkit also comes with SDP (Session Description Protocol) An IETF protocol that defines a text-based message format for describing a multimedia session. Data such as version number, contact information, broadcast times and audio and video encoding types are included in the message. and RTP/RTCP libraries necessary for the development of advanced IP-based communications products.
"RADVISION is pleased that QUALCOMM has selected the powerful SIP Toolkit and Developer Suite to develop components of the QUALCOMM Qvideophone solution," said Boaz Raviv, General Manager of RADVISION's Technology Business Unit. "RADVISION -- with its strong track record in providing easy-to-use, feature-rich, and interoperable developer toolkits for IP protocol devices and applications -- delivers time-to-market improvements while allowing developers to focus on creating advanced features and functionality."
