Sonus Harmony orchestrates all of the different elements in a SIP-based multimedia network and holds together rich media communications by:
- Normalizing the SIP variants between disparate, multivendor network devices (PBXs, , session border controllers, etc.) so that nothing gets lost in translation
- Integrating and sequencing multimedia applications from different sources (hosted, third-party, cloud) into a seamless conversation
- Managing sessions across a wide variety of end user devices and clients so that employees and customers can access the applications and services that they require independt of their physical location or device (smartphone, tablet, laptop, deskphone, etc.).
- Enforcing consistent policies (e.g., authentication, billing, call routing) across the whole session for a better, smarter user experience
