StreamWIDE Enables Carriers to Run Telephony Services on AWS

Migrations can occur smoothly without data loss or service downtime

StreamWIDE announced it has successfully benchmarked its software technology on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Starting today, StreamWIDE customers can migrate existing StreamWIDE services to an Amazon EC2 virtualized environment. With assistance from the StreamWIDE professional services teams, migrations can occur smoothly without data loss or service downtime.

This major achievement means that fixed and mobile operators can now move their voice services such as voicemail, call center applications or voice conferencing to AWS. Additionally, new StreamWIDE customers may choose to begin deploying their telephony services immediately on AWS, using a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Amazon Machine Image, saving money, moving capital expenditure to operational expenditure and shortening a project's time-to-market in comparison with traditional on-premise deployments.

"Telcos face an historic opportunity to revise their approach to voice services deployment. Thanks to cloud resources, it becomes possible to unbundle services from infrastructure and to generate dramatic savings in terms of CAPEX and time to market. We're proud to leverage Amazon Web Services' world leading cloud infrastructure to bring this revolution to the telecom market," Pascal Beglin, StreamWIDE CEO.

While many data-based telecom services are already steadily migrating to cloud environments, voice services have not yet benefited from this trend. The technical difficulty of maintaining high quality service in real-time voice applications, with a remote infrastructure or virtualized machines, has been a challenge. To address this StreamWIDE went through a thorough process of testing and software optimization and has reached a level of quality equal to what on-premise deployment can deliver.  The achievement means StreamWIDE's software is now fully cloud compatible and enables telecoms operators to run high quality voice applications, such as voicemail, on AWS.
