ACONYX™ CAS (Communications Application Server)
Over the past decade, networks have evolved from legacy TDM to IP and IMS. Similarly with wireless, 2/3G networks have evolved to 4G and LTE. The bandwidth is increasing, carrying more data and video traffic, catering to the needs of a new generation of IP, video, and mobile smart phone subscribers. This has changed the focus of the core network. Instead of having silos of applications, service providers are focusing on building applications conforming to various open standard specifications and more so, they are changing the strategy to now invest in Application Server architecture, which can host multiple applications on a single cluster at a central location. AGNITY’s ACONYX CAS (Communications Applications Server) is perfectly designed to meet the market need.
ACONYX CAS is a JSR-289 compliant carrier grade App Server, built ground up, supporting many network protocol interfaces (SS7, IP, IMS and LTE), enabling the carriers to migrate their legacy apps to the NGN environment.
AGNITY CAS supports a broad range of in-network applications (NGIN, Prepaid, Conferencing and Unified Messaging). Accompanying ACONYX SCE, Service Creation Environment, allows the carriers to create and/or enhance the existing applications in a graphical environment and deploy on top on CAS. In addition to In-Network applications, it also offers a Service Exposure Layer, compliant to WAC 3.0, for the external applications (OTT and CEBP) to access and utilize the CAS infrastructure. ACONYX CAS runs on both Linux and Solaris, Virtualization environment, and is ready for supporting the in-network applications in Cloud/SaaS.
