Oracle Accessibility Conformance Report

VPAT® Version 2.0 - October 2017

Name of Product:

Oracle Communications Core Session Manager 8.2.5

Product Description:

The Oracle Communications Core Session Manager (CSM) is specifically designed to help service providers overcome common IMS deployment barriers and business challenges so they can accelerate the introduction of new high-margin services and high-growth revenue streams. The CSM offers higher signaling capacity required by session core functionality with rich RCSe and IMS functionality as per 3GPP requirements.

This product contains a command line user interface (CLI) as the UI. This VPAT contains information for the 8.2.5 version of the CSM.

This product is offered in two options:

  • Software-based virtual machine which is agnostic of hardware 
  • ISO offering on Netra X3-2 and Netra X5-2 platform

Date:

19-May-2019

Contact Information:

accessible_ww@oracle.com

Notes:

Documentation on use of commands in the CLI window is also available via "auto-complete" or by pressing the Tab button twice. Doing so will provide the user with possible options to the command already entered in the CLI prompt. If no command is entered in the CLI prompt, then a list of all possible commands will be displayed to the user.

Evaluation Methods Used:

Oracle's policy is to design, develop and test both products and documentation to be accessible. The recommended styles of testing for accessibility include: (i) algorithmic automated tests, (ii) human judgement tests such as tool-assisted tests, visual inspection and manual operation, and (iii) testing with assistive technology by people with and without disabilities. Additional information about Oracle's accessibility program is available on http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/accessibility/index.html
