Radware, a provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, has partnered with BEA Systems, a player in enterprise and communications infrastructure software.

As an outcome of the proposal of mutual co-operation, Radware has expanded its support across BEA solutions to answer both IT and network needs of BEA enterprise and carrier customers. Radware’s AppDirector, the company’s flagship intelligent application delivery controller (ADC) has been certified with BEA WebLogic Server and across the latest versions of BEA WebLogic Communications Platform product family.

Products within the BEA WebLogic Communications Platform product family include BEA WebLogic SIP Server, a carrier-grade, integrated Java EE and SIP application server, and BEA WebLogic SIP Server, a carrier-grade, integrated Java EE and SIP application server, and BEA WebLogic Network Gatekeeper, a policy enforcement and telecommunications web services platform.

As a global BEA partner, Radware will also leverage its core competencies in telecommunications networking to offer support for these products. This will help ensure that service provider networks can deploy new revenue-generating applications faster, and with optimal performance and security through the elimination of traffic surges, bottlenecks and disconnects.

Mike McHugh, vice president, Engineering, Communication Platform Division of BEA Systems has said, “The BEA WebLogic Communications Platform product family is designed to enable service providers with the ability to leverage the Web, telecommunications and SOA to rapidly create and deliver converged Internet-communication services. Radware’s increased activity in the telecommunications space and its core strengths in IT application delivery and security make them a strong partner, providing joint customers increased opportunities to deliver innovative, revenue-generating applications and services in a secure and stable networking environment.”

Yossi Vardi, vice president, Global Business Development of Radware has stated, “Expanding our partnership with BEA has been a critical step in Radware’s partner initiatives; especially in the telecommunications arena where we are expanding product lines and aggressively looking to grow our business. Our AppDirector is optimized to empower BEA customers to harness the unique, converged application delivery opportunities available; designed to ensure best performance and growth both today, and in the future.”

Contextually, the newly integrated and certified service provider solutions provided by Radware and BEA offer a secured, scalable and highly available platform. It has been designed to allow improved SIP call capacity and performance of BEA WebLogic SIP server through Radware’s AppDirector’s SIP-aware load-balancing and intelligent traffic distribution, keeping SIP call persistency.

The solution can be further enhanced to higher capacity by the aggregation of additional AppDirector ADC and BEA WebLogic SIP Server nodes, providing unlimited scalability and maximum performance to service providers’ SIP services deployments. BEA Systems and Radware have conducted complete interoperability testing.
