Dialogic (News - Alert) Corporation, a global provider of products and technologies for media and signal processing, has extended its market leadership in VoIP
host media processing technologies and multimedia development platforms with its recent interface board and software releases.
These products are designed and tested with conferencing and contact center solution developers. As a result, they are equipped to enable pure IP
and hybrid media solutions.
A new interface board for Dialogic Host Media Processing (HMP) Software is now shipping. This new interface board features octal density, software-selectable T1/E1 interfaces and 128 ms G.168 echo cancellation offload.
In tandem with the board release, Dialogic has also introduced a new, high density Linux version of its HMP software, which is designed to provide support for its existing family of single-, dual- and quad-density T1/E1 HMP Interface Boards, complementing its current Windows offering.
Both products are positioned to broaden the market opportunities for solution developers and OEMs to bring existing and new applications onto Dialogic’s unique hybrid TDM-IP media server and media gateway platform.
The Dialogic DNI2410TEPEHMP Digital Network Interface Board (DNI2410) is a full-size PCI Express board that supports eight T1/E1 interfaces. This board was created with the next-generation Dialogic DM3 Media Board architecture, which can deliver backward compatibility for existing applications developed to the Dialogic R4 and Global Call application program interfaces.
When matched with a rich set of flexibly licensed host-based media resources and a 1U or 2U rack mount server, the octal-density T1/E1 board creates a highly competitive platform for deploying enhanced media gateways, conference and collaboration servers, hybrid IVR
and contact center systems.
"We have had great success deploying HMP Interface Boards in high density, high volume conference service applications with our customers,” said Mark Flanagan, president and CEO of Envox Worldwide (News - Alert), in a statement.
Flanagan continued: "The performance and flexibility of the Dialogic HMP Software and Dialogic HMP Interface Boards have exceeded what we could do on traditional DSP based boards, and added the hybrid IP component as well. We are also looking forward to deploying Envox-based voice solutions on the new octal span DNI2410 board, which promises to boost rack space density by 2X and, at the same time, reduce the system costs for our customers.”
Dialogic HMP Interface Boards and HMP Software are combined to deliver one of the most flexible and competitive platforms on the market for developing media servers and media gateways.
Distinct licensable components of Dialogic HMP Software include video, voice and speech processing, conferencing, fax, IP signaling, RTP
, secure RTP, and extensive coder support. Full-density echo cancellation on the new DNI2410 board also enables significant density and performance improvement.
"High-performance echo cancellation is a MIPs-intensive process,” explained Brian Peebles, Chief Technology Officer for Dialogic, in a company statement. "The echo cancellation offload function on the DNI2410 opens up the host processor to run rich, high-density media and IP resource loads. In concert with new dual-core and quad-core host processors, it enables us to support increasingly dense hybrid TDM-IP solutions while maintaining consistently high audio quality.”
"The new DNI2410 board was everything we expected from a professional telephony board. Not only did applications developed with our VBVoice toolkit work without a problem, they did so at a very high density using modern PCI Express technology,” said Jason Carter, R&D Quality Assurance Engineer at Pronexus (News - Alert), which worked with the news DNI2410.
Carter continued: "The octal density board opens new opportunities for our customers to be competitive, and compliments the existing single, dual, and quad-density Dialogic HMP Interface Boards to allow us a complete range of system density in 1U and 2U rack mount servers when using Dialogic HMP Software.”
Apex Voice Communications Executive Vice President Elhum Vahdat reported in a statement, "I was impressed at how easy it was to integrate the Dialogic HMP Interface Boards into our existing software. Now we have a hybrid product solution from Dialogic that is field-proven, cost-effective and flexible for any application, and it has positioned our TDM
deployments for migration to VoIP technology with just a software upgrade.”
Dialogic has hit the mark with many of its implementations as these customers are each attesting to the ease in which the application was integrated into current software. This step can often be a major hurdle to adoption and can limit or even prevent adoption throughout an industry.
Dialogic also listened to its customers and understood the challenges they were facing and what they needed to effectively overcome those challenges and produce a more productive environment. The company’s new solutions not only overcomes these challenges, it also delivers high quality performance in telephony integration, a must-have for its clients.
