Radisys® Corporation, a global leader of open telecom solutions, announced the addition of Engage Media Analytics within the acclaimed Engage Digital Platform (EDP). Engage Media Analytics is a comprehensive solution that provides Communication Service Providers (CSPs), System Integrators, and Enterprises with cost-effective low-code/no-code visual design tools to create Industry 4.0 applications with new AI-powered audio analytics and computer vision capabilities.
Engage Media Analytics’ application possibilities include notifying medical personnel when a patient in a wheelchair needs assistance or an elderly at-home patient has fallen from the bed; or identifying critical keywords or background sounds on an emergency call to augment the live agent discussion and help make life-saving decisions; detecting a fire in a factory, campus building, or other location and alerting emergency services personnel; monitoring retail shelves and combing customer identification, location, and live video to send money saving coupons to a frequent shopper’s phone as they near a location with promotional items; and many other Industry 4.0 services.
The Engage Media Analytics solution offers a unique combination of capabilities:
- Off-the-shelf models including people and object counting, object and sound detection and classification, and biometric authentication. Engage Media Analytics also supports model customization and new model creation.
- Ability to create trigger actions based on insights derived from the media stream whether through other communication capabilities in the EDP, including voice and video calling, creating an on-the-fly conference, sending alerts, and recording, as well as interworking with external systems for initiating business processes in enterprise workflow tools.
- Distributed deployment of services spanning public and private clouds, network edge infrastructure, and on enterprise premises, enabling applications that demand low latency, cost and bandwidth-efficient network utilization for local breakout, and ensuring data privacy and security.
Alan Quayle, Founder TADHack, TADSummit, said: “The programmable communications industry (CPaaS) is evolving from a focus on connectivity to understanding the content of communications through programmable media analytics. Actionable intelligence and compliance are important in delivering innovative new services. The all-in-one Engage Digital Platform delivers AI-based actionable intelligence that enables service providers to deliver business efficiencies for their customers’ mission-critical applications.”
Radisys’ Engage Media Analytics can be deployed on distributed edge cloud and integrates with public or private 4G/5G RAN and core network functions such as Network Exposure Function (NEF), abstracting complexities for application developers to productize Industry 4.0 applications quickly and cost-effectively.
