Parsippany, NJ, ­ September 30, 2015: 

Dialogic, a global networking software and infrastructure solution provider, announced today the general availability of Dialogic® PowerMedia™ XMS Release 3.0. PowerMedia XMS 3.0 is a major upgrade of the company’s highly-scalable software media server/media resource function (MRF), and offers enhanced scalability and significant reliability improvements when deployed along with the company’s PowerMedia™ Media Resource Broker (MRB) software. Other notable enhancements include those in the areas of advanced recording capabilities, HTTP file transfer, fax, and other media processing resources intended for developers building next-generation communications applications. 

“As a developer building advanced WebRTC security applications based on Dialogic PowerMedia XMS, we’re looking forward to working with XMS 3.0, and using many of the enhancements in the new release,” said Kevin W. Mullins, Chief Executive Officer at SaferMobility.“ An area of particular value is the new WebRTC codecs and scaling capabilities that the PowerMedia Media Resource Broker (MRB) brings.”

Dialogic’s PowerMedia XMS is a highly scalable, software-only media server that enables standards-based, real-time multimedia communications solutions for IMS, MRF, enterprise, and WebRTC applications on premise or in the cloud. Built on 15+ years of software media processing experience, PowerMedia XMS is trusted by world class service-providers and large enterprises to power millions of rich media sessions.

“We are thrilled to achieve new density and scalability milestones with PowerMedia XMS 3.0,” said Jim Machi, Senior VP Product Management and Marketing at Dialogic. “The integrated media resource function and media resource broker (MRF/MRB) solutions offer what we see as industry-leading scalable media resources for conferencing, announcements, recording, and other advanced functions required by communications service providers and enterprise application developers.”
