    Enabling robust communications for the Open Source community

    PARSIPPANY, N.J., Aug. 31 /CNW/ -- Dialogic Corporation ("Dialogic"), a
global provider of world-class  products and technologies for multimedia and
signal processing, today introduces Project DiaStar(TM), an open source

    In conjunction with Project DiaStar, Dialogic is also announcing the
DiaStar(TM) Server (DSS), which is the first available software developed from
Project DiaStar.  The DiaStar(TM) Server (DSS) acts as multi-function
peripheral that can be implemented as a media gateway, signaling gateway or
media server.  The DSS operates in support of an Asterisk  (or other open
source) implementation via the open source Woomera protocol.  Additionally,
the DSS is a Woomera-compliant server and can operate with projects or
products that implement a corresponding Woomera client.

    Highlights of the DiaStar Server:
    --  Creates a client/server architecture for Asterisk or FreeSWITCH --
        Enhances reliability, scalability, and redundancy for Asterisk or
        FreeSWITCH implementations
    --  Distributed architecture allows media and signaling functions to be
        abstracted and moved from a telephony server to the DSS -- Reduces the
        processing load on a telephony server
    --  Abstracts and encapsulates media, signaling, and gateway functions --
        Allows developers to access Dialogic  functionality while working
        within their native programming environment
    --  Multiple configurations, including one telephony server to one DSS,
        multiple telephony servers to one DSS, or one telephony server to
        multiple DSSs -- Provides flexibility in distributing and balancing
        processing loads; multiple telephony clients can share the resources
        a single DSS
    --  Compatible with Dialogic  HMP Interface Boards (DNI Boards) -- Allows
        converged TDM-IP and TDM-only solutions in PCI and PCIe form factors
    --  Supports video, SS7 signaling, fax and FoIP -- Enables high-value
        and signaling capabilities to be brought to the market in a reliable
        and scalable way

    --  Up to 24 spans (720 simultaneous calls) of TDM connectivity (T1/E1)
        DSS -- Enables high-density solutions

    "Dialogic has been supporting ISVs with open standards based boards and
software since the beginning of the standards based era.  More directly
supporting the open source telephony ISVs is a natural evolution for us," said
Steve Gladstone, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Media Enabling
Product Group for Dialogic.  "The DiaStar Server (DSS) offers Open Source
Telephony developers the opportunity to leverage features provided by Dialogic
Products, such as Dialogic  Perfect Call, which provides Call Progress
Analysis, Positive Voice Detection and Answering Machine Detection.  We
believe that this market has now matured to the point where participants are
finding opportunities that can only be addressed effectively by the kinds of
technology that Dialogic provides."
