The CreaLog Telecom Platform comes with a powerful Service Creation Environment (SCE), named CreaLog CDG, that allows users to change existing workflows and create new ones. Workflows form the intelligence of every signaling or media server when controlling inbound and outbound traffic: The CreaLog SCE supports workflow creation for call handling, SMS and USSD messaging, web/chat interaction, and message delivery. It is well-proven as the source of thousands of applications and easy-to-learn.
The SCE has a fully graphical user interface and offers over 100 icons for all kinds of applications. An integrated scripting engine allows developing complex calculations and procedures. Feature-rich interfaces enable seamless external connectivity. A set of ODBC functions is included for SQL database access. The integrated web services support all relevant protocols such as HTTP/HTTPS, XML/SOAP, RESTful and include a powerful XML parser.
Additional icon libraries cater for Diameter, LDAP, SMTP/POP3/IMAP, and FTP/sFTP. For operational purposes, a useful set of universal functions for logging, reporting, tracing, and monitoring is part of the standard icon set.
For signaling servers supporting INAP/CAP/MAP or SIP, the SCE offers a comprehensive set of icons for enhanced IN and SIP applications. Media resource functions (MRF) are covered by a huge set of icons for call control as well as for audio/video streaming and fax. Sophisticated IVR dialogs can be created using icons for speech recognition, text-to-speech, and voice biometrics. For use in VXML application servers, the SCE fully supports the VXML programming paradigm. SMS, USSD, and web/chat dialogs can be created.
An open interface for proprietary extensions, e. g., in C/C++ supports integrating additional icons with new functionalities. And finally, the CDG SCE supports modularization, code re-usability, versioning and team collaboration for large projects.
