Dialogic Corporation (“Dialogic”), a global provider of world-class products and technologies for multimedia and signal processing, today launched its inCloud9™ network, a free, cloud-based developer network designed to make it easier and more efficient for developers to test Dialogic products while building newapplications. Specifically, the inCloud9 network provides application developers with access to products, technical documentation and support for creating innovative new voice and video-enabled value-added services, without requiring local server hardware or a development environment.
Developers can securely develop applications using inCloud9 resources that are functionally partitioned and assigned to them. They are initially provided login credentials that enable them to access the site via a VPN connection. Development tools can then be accessed to create prototype applications that can be functionally tested with dedicated server resources running both Dialogic and third party products. inCloud9 also serves as a community for developers, and allows them to communicate and interact with others that have similar interests.
The first products available for use in the inCloud9 network include Dialogic® PowerMedia™ products — Dialogic® PowerMedia™ IP Media Server (IPMS), a powerful and flexible server-based software product that supports open protocols and APIs to unleash media processing capabilities for mobile value-added services; and Dialogic® PowerMedia™ Web Media Server (WMS), software that enables the rapid development and deployment of voice and video-enabled Web 2.0 social networking and other applications using an HTTP RESTful-based interface popular with web developers.
Additional third party products are also accessible, including the Sailfin J2EE application server, OpenMethods OpenVXML service creation environment, Vicorp xMP service creation environment, NetBeans IDE and the Tomcat server for XML script and prompt storage. Dialogic is planning to make additional Dialogic products and third party products available through inCloud9 later in 2010.
In addition to providing product access and support, inCloud9 will feature video training demos and sample code for applications such as:
* Video Mail
* Text Overlay
* MSCML-based IVR and Advanced Conferencing
* Dynamic VXML
* “Click to Call” Applications
* Video Ring Back Tone
“We designed the inCloud9 network to be a stimulating, resource-rich environment for developers in which they have access to the tools and support for expressing their creativity and developing new applications,” said Jim Machi, senior vice president of marketing at Dialogic. “We are excited to see what innovations will emerge from the inCloud9 initiative.”
Dialogic is currently accepting mobile video applications for its second annual Dialogic Innovator Challenge. The company is offering access to inCloud9 for selected developers to create applications for submission to the Innovator Challenge. The grand prize winner will receive a cash prize of US$10,000, with additional cash prizes awarded to two runners up.
