Networks and Protocols
Rhino Telecom Application Server is network and protocol agnostic. Through its Resource Adapter (RA) architecture, it has connectivity to the widely used, existing SS7 networks and packet data-based networks such as IMS/ SIP for telecommunication services. Rhino provides full access to the complete array of protocol capabilities on a protocol by protocol basis. This means that the proprietary extensions to protocols that are often implemented by network equipment vendors can be used by Rhino-hosted call and session control applications.
The Rhino Telecom Application Server supports multiple versions of the "same" RA. It provides capabilities to enable on-line upgrade of RAs without down-time and provides support for backwards compatibility between RAs and the Application Server itself. This means that new and variant protocols may be added to a Rhino Telecom Application Server whilst services are running with no requirement for down-time or problems with service incompatibilities due to their requiring specific protocol versions.
Rhino Telecom Application Server with the SIP and Diameter Connectivity Packs provides the carrier-grade platform and application server capabilities that are specified for the SIP Application Server within the IMS specification and many in-network Service Delivery Platform (SDP) solutions.
