Sonim Technologies has designed the Force EndurX high availability (HA) system into its Instant Communications Solution (ICS). As the application leader in voice services for today's wireless networks, Sonim provides mobile operators with push-to-talk (PTT) solutions, which need the 99.999% uptime - also known as "five nines" availability - inherent in Force's tightly-integrated EndurX Carrier-Grade, HA solution. "For global mobile operators, push-to-talk is probably the single most important solution to deploy within the next year", said Wade Vesey, Chief Marketing Officer for Sonim Technologies.

"Working with Force gives us great confidence in supporting operators with highly available and scalable solutions by meeting their deployment needs".

Using off-the-shelf middleware, Force has integrated this EndurX HA system from open-standards-based building blocks and facilitated Sonim's focused development work on its PTT application.

In addition, Force single board computers, which are based on widely deployed Intel Architecture processors running open-source Carrier-Grade Linux, have helped to reduce development costs and provided a time-to-market advantage.

Force is a Premier Member of the Intel Communications Alliance.

Traditionally, high availability systems have only offered 99.999% uptime on a component or subsystem level, forcing OEMs to integrate hardware and software on their own.

However, by building on Force's High Availability Architecture and the Service Availability Forum open specifications, Force's EndurX platform gives OEMs a value-added, platform-agnostic solution, scalable across multiple chassis and highly interoperable with third-party components.
