The telecommunications industry was an early adopter of OO and middleware standards. OCI's earliest clients, equipment manufacturers and service providers, leveraged our expertise in C++, RTOSs, Java and CORBA. As the industry expanded its bandwidth offerings and consolidated through mergers OCI maintained its position as a key supplier of consulting services. Users demand "five nines" technologies and services. OCI offers 24 by 7 service level agreements to many of its global telco clients. OCI engineers travel on-site frequently to deliver support.
With the competition to provide low cost products front and center, OCI has been able to assist its clients' transition to standards based open source middleware technologies. Open source products now provide core functionality to:
- call switching
- tele conferencing
- provisioning, and billing
- cell phone towers or nodes
- network management.
As content management and provider systems converge with communication vendors OCI sees the demand for its open source products and services growing in markets such as video on demand, distributed editing, ad insertion systems, cable systems management, distributed video gaming, for multi-media content providers.
The demand by users for constant connectivity and the consequent growth of the communications infrastructure to satisfy that need illustrate the benefits of open source middleware. The technology is constantly challenged by new demands which can only be satified by the rapid evolution of software supported by large communities of committed developers.
OCI understands how to fulfil the obligations implied by open source and acts on behalf of its clients, such as Alcatel Lucent, Verizon, Siemens,Tellabs, Motorola and Aspira who are the ultimate beneficiaries.
Infrastructure Software for a Global Cellular Phone System: Designed, developed, and established a repository of common/shared, standards-based components for the first global cellular phone system.
Third Generation (3G) wireless telephone (call processing) project: This project called for off-the-shelf software, open source platforms and software, linked many call placement, billing and management systems. The framework provided a common environment and domain-specific set of APIs for developers to use when assembling their telecommunications-specific applications.
Telephony Switch Configuration Management: OCI provided high-level architecture support and assisted with implementing a web-enabled remote switch configuration management system. Technologies employed were Java, Swing and RMI.
