C-COR, Ellacoya tag-team on PCMM
C-COR Inc. and Ellacoya Networks have completed an integration that matches two key components of the PacketCable Multimedia (PCMM) architecture: the policy server and the application manager.
The joint solution pairs C-COR's PCMM-qualified Policy Server Manager with Ellacoya's PCMM-based Multimedia Service Manager. The companies are showing off a PCMM-based, QoS-enabled gaming tier using the Microsoft Xbox Live service.
"With this new solution, cable operators not only gain a best-in-class, interoperable PCMM solution for the delivery of new services, but also seamless integration with the Ellacoya and C-COR platforms for cable broadband networks," said Ellacoya VP of Marketing Ben Legault.
C-COR and Ellacoya are the latest to formally combine PCMM technologies. In May, CableMatrix, a policy server vendor, went a step further, striking a deal to acquire application manager maker Xinnia Technology.
