Oracle Launches Communications Portfolio

Oracle has introduced a new communications portfolio that includes components of the former BEA WebLogic Communications middleware platform and Oracle Fusion Middleware.

The Oracle Communications Service Delivery product portfolio includes Communications Services Gatekeeper (formerly BEA WebLogic Network Gatekeeper), Communications Converged Application Server (formerly BEA WebLogic SIP Server), Communications Virtual PBX, and Communications Residential Telephony.

Oracle said it can be used in combination with its applications for billing and revenue management, customer relationship management, and service fulfillment. It also meets the service delivery platform needs of service providers.

David Sharpley, vice president at Oracle Communications, said: "With an open, standards-based approach, industry-leading deployments and integration with Oracle's end-to-end communications industry applications suite, the Oracle Communications Service Delivery portfolio is uniquely positioned to empower service providers to provide compelling new services."
