IM.MELTEMI SERVICE DELIVERY PLATFORM
IM.Meltemi® is a Service Delivery Platform that consolidates and innovates traditional communication services solutions by seamlessly delivering:
- multimodal services (e.g. voice to command the system, video to get information);
- multichannel services (including voice, video, fax, email, SMS, MMS).
Aimed at being the basic toolkit to build communications solutions and interactive applications, Meltemi is implemented using hw/sw standard platforms suitable for enterprise and carrier-grade installations. It's a multi-node, multi-site platform for applications using different media and different devices (wired and mobile phone, PC, media phone), even simultaneously. Meltemi features a powerful management tool (IM.OAM, Operations Administration & Management) and runs VoiceXML and CCXML developed services. Through the combination of several modules geared to specific functions, IM.Meltemi SDP builds integrated customer care solutions for proactive, automated, and assisted services, acting as Media Server for IM.MIND® applications.

CALL CENTER INTEGRATION
The connectivity to communication networks for IM solutions is granted by hw and sw products integrated in Meltemi and MIND. These products ensure the right interface between our systems and the interaction devices (telephones, mobile phones, PC, tablets, ...). Through such interfaces we steer the protocols relevant to the network environment (IMS, TDM, SIP) that allows the integration with telco network and service providers.
Interactive Media uses Dialogic products to allow interactive services delivery on fixed and mobile devices connected to telecommunication networks.
CTI Connector is certified for several CTI platforms, including Avaya, Cisco, Genesys.
