Business description: Ubiquity Software develops and markets SIP-based communications software for service providers, Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and OEM partners worldwide. The company offers two products, its award-winning SIP Application Server (SIP A/S) and Speak Conference Director (SCD). Through its SIP Applications Partner Program, Ubiquity makes available for deployment a suite of third party mobile and wireline SIP-based applications powered by the Ubiquity SIP Application Server. Ubiquity's flagship product, the SIP Application Server is both a carrier-class deployment platform and a programmable, standards-based application creation environment (ACE) that allows providers to develop and deploy next-generation converged communications services. Use of the Ubiquity SIP Application Server is extended through the open, standards-based SIP Servlet application programming interface (API). By offering a range of pre-built Application Building Blocks (ABBs) and their non-SIP based connectors (ABB-C's), programmers can employ familiar tools to quickly develop real-time communications applications without detailed knowledge of SIP or underlying telecom network infrastructure.
