REDCOM (News - Alert) Laboratories is a provider of IP-enabled telecommunications systems for carriers, utilities, emergency response and defense applications, offering a variety of products, services and applications such as conferencing, local session controller, SIP trunking, media gateway and legacy switch replacement. TRANSip is REDCOM’s IP telephony technology suite, offering a variety of next-generation network functions and a simple, fully integrated VoIP solution that is easy to configure and install.
TRANSip couples REDCOM’s world renowned reliability and extensive telephony experience with all the benefits of VoIP. The technology enables users to join the IP revolution by taking advantage of their IP core network and minimize use of costly legacy network links.
REDCOM has introduced new advances in TRANSip that enhance interoperability and functionality. It has been granted a United States patent No. 8,239,829 B2 entitled, “User Co-Routine Interface for customizing SIP and SDP protocols.”
“REDCOM distinguishes itself by being a pioneer and an innovator in IP Communications” said Sam Delibert, REDCOM’s president and chief operating officer, in a statement. “Our customers demand robust interoperability from our IP-based switch platforms and SIP/SDP manipulation offers a simple and flexible way for seamless interoperability.”

Products offered by REDCOM have always played a central role in interoperability and configuration flexibility has been a hallmark of REDCOM’s product architecture. This flexibility extends to SIP/SDP protocol adaptation as well, and REDCOM offers a simple and flexible way to manipulate SIP/SDP offers received from one device before forwarding these offers to another device. But sometimes the manipulation required goes beyond what our standard methods support.
In order to provide for this kind of customized control, REDCOM’s built-in BASIC scripting language can be used. Patent 8,239,829 B2 discloses a method of incorporating this capability into the real-time processing of SIP/SDP which is both easy to use and very efficient.
It uses what are known as “co-routines” in a novel way to permit call processing to invoke the BASIC scripting component as an efficient in-line function call. The original SIP/SDP offer is made available to the BASIC script along with other environmental information, and the script can return a modified offer to be used in subsequent call processing.
