The Radisys SIPware Reservationless Conferencing solution is a next-generation approach for delivering a cost-effective, feature-rich conference calling service. Based on a pure IP implementation, it can be readily deployed network-wide for subscriber PSTN access through a SIP-enabled media gateway, or connected to subscriber SIP/VoIP endpoints directly via a session border controller. SIPware Reservationless Conferencing offers service providers an off-the-shelf solution for delivering profitable conferencing services—rapidly and cost-effectively.

SIPware solutions can be deployed in single-server COTS platforms with Radisys Software MRF, to virtualized compute platforms in the telecom cloud, up to large multi-site configurations supporting hundreds of thousands of ports using Radisys MPX-12000.
Extensive Failover and Recovery Schemes
Redundant components eliminate single points of failure throughout the architecture. SIPware Application Servers can be configured either N+1 or in high availability models. In the event of component failure, conference state and calls are maintained without any service interruption to the participants.
Reservationless and Meet-Me Conferences
Subscribers can set up conference calls dynamically in reservationless mode acting as an “always on” meeting number or URI—or schedule a traditional meetme conference call at a specific time. Subscriber PINs and Passwords allow easy, instant access to services.
Unattended or Assisted Conference Calls
Conference call moderators and participants can use the service without the need for operator assistance, reducing service provider costs. For premium offerings, the service also supports the use of customer service representatives for “high touch” events.
Powerful Conference Control on One Screen
The Radisys Event Conference Manager (ECM) is a sophisticated, PC-based conference management software program for operators handling large-scale conferences, allowing operators to easily provision and manage conferences, handle operator requests and participant arrivals, and assist participants during Q&A sessions.
SIPware real-time API supports development of customized self-service portal, allowing end users (subscribers and administrators) to manage accounts through web interface. Configurable banners and color schemes facilitate self-service portal branding designed to increase consumption of conferencing minutes.
CSPs can support Webex™ web conferencing services, while using economical Radisys conferencing platform for VoIP audio conferencing.
Microsoft Outlook Integration with Plug-ins
Users of Microsoft Outlook™ can schedule conference calls through Outlook calendar interface. Implementation includes addition of Outlook Ribbon bar controls, along with auto-population of login details, access phone numbers, and conference passcodes with Outlook meeting invites.
Service Creation Environment
Our SCE is unique for a conferencing platform. Service providers can readily specify call flow changes, including IVR logic and associated prompts, in order to meet specific market and even individual customer needs. Customization can range from small tweaks to an entire service replacement.
Many enterprise-class UC systems and video MCU products are designed for a single enterprise. Radisys conferencing solutions can support multiple resellers, with many customers, made up of employees rolled up into department accounts for usage reporting and billing purposes.
