AWS to Showcase its AI Services using Frafos Session Border Controller at re-invent 

AWS showcases its AI Services and how they integrate with VoIP using FRAFOS’ Session Border Controller (SBC) at the AWS re-invent trade-show end of November.

Online PR News – 13-November-2018 – Berlin – FRAFOS announced today AWS would showcase its Artificial Intelligence Services and how they integrate with VoIP using the FRAFOS Session Border Controller (SBC) at the AWS re-invent trade-show end of November.

As the first available SBC on the AWS Marketplace FRAFOS takes it one step further by fully integrating AWS’ artificial intelligence services.

A stable and secure Session Border Controller has long been a key infrastructural element for securing VoIP networks. Within a cloud environment, the role of the SBC becomes even more critical: it must deal with increasing number of security attacks and integrate VoIP with native cloud services including orchestration, autoscaling, lambda functions and AI services.

From the start, the FRAFOS ABC SBC has been designed to comply with the most stringent enterprise and service providers cloud requirements. Besides featuring a market leading rules engine, making interconnection and SIP trunking a breeze, the heartbeat of FRAFOS’ product portfolio is provided by our monitoring solution: the ABC monitor. The Monitor generates key visual and tactical information on your SIP session activities as input to develop and deploy effective network planning and fraud prevention strategies. Now, as the first available SBC on the AWS Marketplace, FRAFOS takes it one step further by fully integrating AWS’ artificial intelligence services.

Please join us on November the 26th when integration of VoIP with AWS AI services is shown in telecom track session TLC 302. The demonstrated use cases include using the ABC monitor to secure access to VoIP cloud, track voice conversions and transcribe speech-to-text using AWS artificial intelligence services.

Frafos completed interop testing with Apple’s Safari

Berlin, Germany, June 12th, 2017: Frafos GmbH today announces completion of its interoperability tests between Apple’s Safari webrtc and Frafos WebRTC SIP gateway. WebRTC is a standard for browser telephony used mostly for integration of call centers, online conferencing and click-to-dial customer care applications. WebRTC has been available in modern browsers including Chrome, Firefox and Opera and is used by many applications such as Google Hangouts and Amazon Connect. Since the last week, WebRTC is also supported by Apple’s experimental release of Safari browser. See the Apple announcement under the following link: https://developer.apple.com/safari/technology-preview/release-notes/ 

Frafos CEO, Rick Kuhlbars, said: “WebRTC has made it incredibly easy to add voice interaction to web applications. It is not just that: web telephony uses browser encryption standard meaning that companies can communicate with their customers more securely than before in the whole telephony’s history. Apple users can now easily access WebRTC applications, and through Frafos SIP gateway SIP and PSTN equipment as well”.
