Communications Server

Definition - What does Communications Server mean?

A communications server is a computing system platform that is used for various network communication applications and allows vendors to add multiple values at different levels of architecture.

A communications server is the foundation for equipment vendors or suppliers that build the network infrastructure used to deploy communication systems, such as wireless, broadband or IP-multimedia. The communications and IT industries are strong supporters of communications servers.
