Dialogic(R) Adds SIP Call Control to Diva(R) Telephony Board Range



    Series of software enhancements adds additional value to existing
products

    Standard PCI form factor telephony boards become TDM/IP gateway systems

    HANOVER, GERMANY, March 15 /CNW/ - Dialogic Corporation ("Dialogic"), a
global provider of world class products and technologies for media and signal
processing, announced today a series of software enhancements for its Diva
range of telephony boards, including new versions of Diva device drivers, the
software development kit (SDK) for Windows and Linux operating systems, and
Diva(R) soft SS7. As a major enhancement, developers can now use Diva(R)
SIPcontrol(TM) software to natively integrate Diva telephony boards into open,
standard SIP (RFC 3261) based environments. This way customers can SIP-enable
legacy TDM applications by re-using existing Diva hardware and at the same
time reduce the cost and effort of integration as no programming to local
application programming interfaces (APIs) is required anymore as a result of
Host Media Processing (HMP) interoperability.

    The following Diva software components are part of this release:

    --  Diva(R) SIPcontrol(TM) v1.5 Diva SIPcontrol turns any Diva telephony
adapter into a SIP-enabled TDM/IP gateway system. It supports a variety of TDM
protocols and interfaces, ranging from Analog over ISDN and Q.SIG with BRI and
PRI interfaces to E1/T1 digital variants. Call control information from the
Diva telephony board is translated into SIP messages while voice channels are
converted into IP packets and streamed via the RTP protocol. Diva SIPcontrol
also supports DTMF collection/generation according to RFC 2833 and fax over IP
according to T.38. Diva SIPcontrol v1.5 will be made available as a software
download and is licensed so that up to eight channels per system can be used
free-of-charge. Additional channel licenses are commercially available in
steps of 30, 60 and 120 channels.

    --  Diva(R) Software Suite v8.3 With this enhanced set of device drivers
all Diva telephony boards can be operated in 32-bit and 64-bit Windows and
Linux based systems, offering industry standard CAPI programming interface. As
a major edition, this release supports a new 2-port low-profile PCI form
factor analog telephony adapter, Diva Analog-2P as well as PCI-Express
variants of Diva ISDN PRI boards. For E1 deployments in Brazil, Mexico,
Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia protocol support for E1 lines using R2MF
is now included. Finally Diva Software Suite v8.3 now supports event logging
so that Windows-based systems can use Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) for
checking system integrity. Diva Software Suite v8.3 is available free of
charge and can be downloaded from the Dialogic web site.

    --  Diva(R) SDK v4.5 The Diva SDK offers high level functions for easy
and fast application development, ensuring independence of the underlying
communications platform (TDM or IP) as well as the operating system (Windows
or Linux). It offers developers a choice of modern and effective programming
environments such as Visual C#, Visual Basic .Net, C and C++. The latest
version 4.5 of Diva SDK offers improvements in the area of tone and DTMF
handling delivered as ActiveX components. Further there are enhancements for
fax processing in JPEG and TIFF format. Diva SDK v4.5 is available free of
charge and can be downloaded from the Dialogic web site.

    --  Diva(R) softSS7 v1.5 Diva softSS7 entirely abstracts SS7/ISUP call
control from the application. In this way developers can use Diva APIs (CAPI
and Diva SDK) in combination with Diva PRI/E1 boards for the implementation of
SS7 applications. The latest version 1.5 adds enhancements to the SS7
management and supports SS7 blocking and unblocking of channels according to
ITU-T ISUP specifications. Additional information elements are supported and
allow a more seamless integration with existing SS7 deployments, including
support for charging information via application transport mechanism (APM).
Diva softSS7 v1.5 is a license fee based software option which can be
purchased in combination with Diva PRI/E1 adapters.

states Ralf Muhlenhover, Managing Director for Voxtron GmbH. "As a leading
international provider of media processing and signaling products, Dialogic

    "The software enhancements and new offerings for the Dialogic Diva media
resource board product lines are great news for our customers," states Jim
Machi, Vice President of Marketing for Dialogic. "Not only do they provide
significant enhancements across the Diva product lines, but they also enable a
whole range of SIP gateway sub-systems that can support emerging SIP
applications in the enterprise, and interoperability with Dialogic(R) Host
Media Processing software on the same server as well."
