Verso Technologies recently announced the first carrier grade Skype filtering technology. This filter can also block P2P messaging, streaming media and instant messaging. This filtering is done at the carrier level so filtered communications can be blocked at the provider level.
“This is a first of kind technology we are introducing in the carrier marketplace,” said Monty Bannerman, president and chief operating officer, Verso Technologies. “The introduction of Verso’s application filter reinforces the company’s focus on the network application space and strengthens our position as a leader in optimization technology. This application should be of great interest to any facilities based carrier in the world. Now that the application has successfully completed its pre-production trials, we are working with tier-1 carriers to conduct the first production field trial for this application. We believe that the application has tremendous market opportunity because it addresses an increasingly critical carrier requirement as P2P traffic continues to grow worldwide.”
