Volantis enhances its mobile content storefront

Adds support for Oracle Communication Services Gatekeeper and Java Content Repository

By CBR Staff Writer

Volantis Systems said that it has added enhanced scalability and integration to the latest version of its Mobile Content Storefront, which includes integration with Oracle Communication Services Gatekeeper (OCSG), support for JCR (Java Content Repository or JSR-170) and enhanced integration with third-party content management systems (CMS).

Volantis said that as an integral part of the its Content Delivery Platform (CDP), the Mobile Content Storefront is a platform for wireless carriers and content providers to acquire, market, sell and distribute digital content through a variety of channels and devices.

According to Volantis, OCSG is a web-SOA-telecom platform that automates the management of third-party partner access to the service delivery platform (SDP). The new Storefront version includes components for direct integration with OCSG v4.1 for both inbound and outbound messaging.

In addition, the integration supports SMS-based service discovery and requests for content or subscriptions. Message-based delivery of content through OCSG is also supported through SMS, MMS and WAP Push.

With added support for JCR, the new Storefront version allows content items to be managed. This support offers a new alternative to the existing subversion-based content repository and allows for use of a relational database for the content storage including Oracle 11g RAC. The content repository API for Java was developed under the Java Community Process as JSR-170, the company said.

Reportedly, the new Storefront version also incorporates a new open interface for CMS integration, which allows users of Storefront’s web-based GUI to access and incorporate content items and assets from external or third-party content management systems. It is expected to enable operators to leverage their existing investments in content management systems and reduces duplication.

Mark Watson, CEO of Volantis Systems, said: These latest enhancements to our Storefront platform make it even easier for our customers to design, deliver and manage content in order to provide the best mobile user experience on any device.

“As mobile device usage and the number of mobile devices continues to grow, our integration with Oracle and added support for JCR not only speeds content delivery but also reduces the costs associated with managing that content.”
