SOAP over HTTP(s)

June. 1, 2016 - SOAP/XML over HTTP/HTTPS Protocol Provider Released

Sonoran Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of our SOAP/XML over HTTP/HTTPS protocol provider for our ArTrac G5, Sierra Vista, and Sonoran Enterprise Management (SEM) product lines.

SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) over HTTP/HTTPS is seeing rapid adoption by the IT, Telecommunications, and Wireless industries. With object brokering capabilities similar to CORBA, lower cost of implementation and back end ownership, cross platform compatibility, and easy configuration, many equipment vendors are implementing SOAP as an OSS interface. SOAP benefits as a W3C standard and has seen adoption as a 3GPP standard.

Unlike our competitors, who offer vendor specific “probes,” our design is configurable to support all vendors, making it much more cost effective. Additionally, our protocol provider supports all modes of open or encrypted authentication as well as HTTP and HTTP with SSL encryption (HTTPS) - the same secure encryption used by financial institutions for on-line banking.

SOAP makes use of strongly typed XML structures called “documents” to package data objects. Our SOAP/XML over HTTP/HTTPS design exposes the underlying XML document engine to support raw XML and custom XML name spaces to communicate with web services too, making our design very versatile and extensible.

Our ArTrac, Sierra Vista, and SEM product lines offer one of the most cost effective, reliable, robust, scalable, and flexible implementations of SOAP/XML over HTTP/HTTPS in the industry.
