SURF Drives Incumbent SIP/H.323 Video Conferencing into the Future

SURF Communication Solutions has unveiled ORION-HMP, a NFV-ready multimedia-conferencing platform consolidating WebRTC and legacy deployments for the first time.

Leveraging the power of Intel processors’ GPU, the software-based ORION-HMP offers up to 4K resolutions, industry-high density of concurrent calls and participants per server, full collaboration, and a 90% reduction in processing-related costs.

Yokneam, Israel (March, 2016) – SURF Communication Solutions (www.surfsolutions.com), a developer of high capacity, real-time multimedia processing and enabling technologies for the telecommunications industry has announced its SURF-HMP Media Processing platform being chosen by Vertical Communications® (www.vertical.com) for its virtual IP-PBX.

As the successful deployment of new Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies require provision for the latest voice and UC codecs and standards, they also impose the need for legacy support in what is projected to be a long transition period, in addition to seamless interoperability with incumbent PSTN and SIP legacy networks. Vertical Communications has chosen SURF-HMP, a media processing platform that handles all media-related tasks in a virtual environment; including modern and legacy codec transcoding, messaging, call recording, large-scale conferencing, legacy fax processing, encryption and a world of additional functionality.

Developed by a veteran team with over 20 years’ experience in voice and video processing, SURF-HMP is a scalable and robust media processing platform that meets the needs of both small-scale, as well as large virtualized and non-virtualized deployments. As SURF-HMP’s unique system architecture is fully scalable for growth, in addition to making optimized use of the CPU multiple cores and hyper-threads, it is the premier solution today for users seeking to take advantage of Network Function Virtualization capabilities by virtualizing their activities, lowering OPEX and improving time to market.

“As we evaluated various technology vendors to help virtualize our IP-PBX, we recognized it was critical to partner with a company that offered both a dependable infrastructure and a compelling business model,” said Bobby Mohanty, Vertical’s senior vice president and general manager for products. “We’ve had a close relationship with SURF for many years, and have come to appreciate the value that it delivers. SURF-HMP’s JSON APIs are extremely easy to use, which helps us achieve an extremely short time to market. In addition, SURF’s flexible licensing models and platform scalability enables us to manage costs as we look to satisfy the needs of our diverse customer base.”

“Telecom providers are seeking a one-stop-shop solution to fully address all their multimedia needs. By facilitating HD voice & video processing across any codec or platform in a single server, and including an advanced API development kit, SURF-HMP enables our clients to focus their activities on creating innovative UC solutions which benefit their customers while increasing corporate revenues,” explained SURF CEO, Mr. Avi Fisher.

Ariel Linker, SURF’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing commented: “We are very pleased to be expanding our business cooperation with Vertical. SURF-HMP is in many respects an enabling technology that brings with it the business justification for service providers upgrading to NFV/SDN and WebRTC infrastructure. As SURF-HMP can be licensed as a media-only or as a media & signaling platform, for voice only or voice & video, Vertical now has a dependable and scalable backend that enables near-complete flexibility in their business model and product offering.”

Surf & Intel collaborate on NFV & WebRTC multimedia platform

Surf Communication collaborates with Intel on its first all-inclusive platform for NFV and WebRTC

As part of a strategic cooperation, these companies expand the boundaries of NFV and WebRTC deployments. Powered by Intel graphics processors and media software, Surf’s cutting-edge HMP product line is defining the future of multimedia processing solutions.

Yokneam, Israel (February 8, 2016) – Surf Communication Solutions (www.surfsolutions.com), a leading developer of high capacity, real-time multimedia processing platforms and solutions for the telecommunications industry, announces Surf Orion HMP and Surf Motion HMP, the next building blocks of the Surf HMP™ family. This comprehensive, high-performance multimedia communications and processing platform was developed in collaboration with Intel Corporation, a leading vendor of hardware-accelerated media processing platforms utilizing standard off-the-shelf parts.

The NFV/SDN revolution brought about a major shift in the telecommunications industry, where service providers are abandoning dedicated network equipment infrastructures in favor of virtualized, software-based solutions that run on uniform server farms. Successful NFV implementations are now demanding support for the latest video and voice codecs and standards that empower innovative LTE and WebRTC deployments, but at the same time proficiency and guaranteed interoperability with the incumbent SIP and H.323 legacy networks and services.

Surf Communication Solutions, a 20-year veteran of multimedia enabling platforms, introduced its new architecture called Surf HMP, which signifies a quantum-leap in real-time multimedia processing. This new family of products pushes the advantages of Intel® processors with integrated graphics, and optimized by Intel® Media Server Studio delivers fast, high-quality media acceleration – facilitating up to 4K video resolutions and ultra-high capacity HD voice and video processing. Surf HMP is flexibly architectured to meet the requirements of both evolving and large-scale deployments, is driven-by a powerful processing engine that supports all major video and voice codecs and protocols in use, and delivers a multitude of applications such as transcoding, conferencing/mixing, MRF, playout, recording, messaging, video surveillance, encryption and more.

Avi Fisher, Surf’s CEO explains: “Following almost two decades of multimedia processing excellence, SURF meticulously evaluated the available platforms suitable for our next generation offering. We were delighted to find the superb media capabilities provided by Intel Media Server Studio and hardware-accelerated codec support in Intel processors, which are second to none; therefore we have invested considerably in acquiring expertise and proficiency on Intel-based platforms to achieve what Surf HMP can now provide.”

Jeff McVeigh, Intel Software and Services Group vice president and Visual Computing Products general manager, states: “Through the use of Intel processors with media-accelerated technologies optimized by Intel Media Server Studio, the Surf HMP platform solves a critical need for the deployment of multimedia processing, conferencing and streaming solutions. We are excited by its introduction and look forward to ongoing collaboration to lead the way in the NFV/SDN revolution.”

Ariel Linker, Surf’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing comments: “Surf HMP marks a breakthrough in multimedia processing for telecom and service providers, lowering related infrastructure and OPEX, while significantly increasing performance and functionality. As NFV deployments for new 4G/LTE services begin to take shape and form, they’re expected to account for more than 90% of operator deployments in APAC, U.S. and Western Europe. Surf HMP is by far the best of breed for these purposes, and will cement Surf’s leading position in this technological space.”
