Oracle Corp. is shipping Communications Converged Application Server 4.0, based on BEA's WebLogic SIP Server. The upgraded CCAS allows network operators, equipment providers, SI and ISVs to develop, deliver and operate multimedia communications services in real time.

The CCAS announcement was made during September's Oracle Open World in San Francisco.

CCAS is a converged Web/communications application development and deployment platform, combining Internet and communications capabilities with carrier-grade high availability, performance, scalability and reliability. Oracle called CCAS "a key component of the Oracle Communications Service Delivery product portfolio,"

Notably, CCAS is the first commercial SIP/IP-Multimedia Subsystem application compliant with the JSR 289 standard, according to Oracle officials.

"As network operators worldwide deploy next-generation architectures, it has become increasingly important to quickly generate new revenue from these network investments," ," said Liam Maxwell, vice president of products, Oracle Communications, in a statement. "Oracle [CCAS] delivers the IT and telecommunications tools necessary for deploying new services quickly and cost-effectively

In specific, CCAS provides these carrier-grade HA services through clustering, replication and geographic redundancy. The CCAS architecture would also allow multimedia service providers to eliminate single points of failure, and avoid service disruptions or catastrophic failures in their telecommunications networks.

CCAS also provides advanced operation, administration and management tools to help streamline and optimize network operations, lower the total cost of creating services, according to Oracle.
