Zultys Technologies (News - Alert) today introduced a Telephony Application Programming Interface

, Internet gateway, network server and application server in a single, compact housing. The announcement was made during TMC’s (News - Alert) 4th Annual Communications Developer Conference, now underway in Santa Clara, Calif.
The TAPI will enable systems integrators and other developers to customize Zultys’ SIP-based software to meet a customer’s specific needs. Specifically, it will facilitate tighter integration of Zultys’ IP-PBX (News - Alert) solutions with business processes.
These tailored applications will be able to deliver both voice and data to a variety of end devices, plus they will be able to support complex connection types and call management techniques, such as call conferencing, call waiting and voice mail.
In addition the TAPI will allow all elements of telephone usage, from simple dial-and-speak calls to screen pops and database lookups based on caller information, to be controlled within applications developed for Microsoft (News - Alert) application programming interfaces.
