Munich, August 8, 2016: ECT (European Computer Telecoms AG), vendor of complete solutions for value-added services in the voice and multimedia domain, has now opened its complete INtellECT® Service Creation Environment (SCE) to communications service providers and third-party developers seeking to create and maintain their own valued-added services.
Communications service providers are now no longer working solely within their own telco domain. That’s why the INtellECT® SCE is not “just” for telco services. On the contrary, it facilitates the creation of applications that blend seamlessly components and features from telco communications networks and real-time communications as well as services in the IT cloud. These new applications can then be made available to business and residential customers via telephone calls and text messaging, but also via any web page, smartphone app, softphone, etc. Applications can thus utilize voice, video, chat, recording, multimedia processing, collaboration and whiteboards in addition to any cloud service with an API, such as Google+, MS Outlook, Facebook, Twitter, payment and CRM systems, etc.
Moreover, it is not even necessary to directly write programs or code, as the INtellECT® SCE also provides browser-based graphical tools which anyone can use. These tools automate all the steps in the application development process, including data modeling, API connectivity and testing, service logic, the creation of web and smartphone apps, unit testing, deployment and service orchestration.
“For a long time, we have been assisting service providers in the migration from silo solutions to one multiservice, multi-country solution and used our own SCE to provide the most innovative multimedia services possible,” as Dr. Hans Huber, CTO of ECT, explains. “Now that so many carriers worldwide have our INtellECT® Service Delivery Platform (SDP) at the heart of their next-generation, IMS and VoLTE offerings, we are opening our service creation to allow our customers to push forward with the quick and easy realization of their own entrepreneurial ideas.”
