Dialogic Improves Densities for VoIP Conferencing and Contact Center Applications

    Dialogic(R) Host Media Processing Software for Linux increases density
and features while new Dialogic(R) T1/E1 octal-span board doubles
hybrid-system densities

    LOS ANGELES, September 10 /CNW/ - Dialogic Corporation ("Dialogic"), a
global provider of world-class 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 latest interface
board and software releases. Designed for and tested with conferencing and
contact center solution developers, these products enable pure IP and hybrid
media solutions.

    Now shipping is a new interface board for Dialogic(R) Host Media
Processing (HMP) Software, which features octal density, software-selectable
T1/E1 interfaces and 128 ms G.168 echo cancellation offload. In tandem with
the board release, Dialogic has introduced a new, high-density Linux version
of its HMP software, which provides support for its existing family of
single-, dual- and quad-density T1/E1 HMP Interface Boards, complementing its
current Windows(R) offering. Both products 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(R) DNI2410TEPEHMP Digital Network Interface Board (DNI2410)
is a full- size PCI Express board that supports eight T1/E1 interfaces and was
designed using the next-generation Dialogic(R) DM3 Media Board architecture,
which delivers backward compatibility for existing applications developed to
the Dialogic(R) R4 and Dialogic(R) Global Call application program interfaces.
The octal-density T1/E1 board, matched with a rich set of flexibly licensed
host-based media resources and a 1U or 2U rack mount server, creates a highly
competitive platform for deploying enhanced media gateways, conference and
collaboration servers, hybrid IVR and contact center systems.

    Envox Worldwide, a leading global provider of voice solutions, has been
working with Dialogic HMP Software and Dialogic HMP Interface Boards since
they were first introduced in late 2006. "We have had great success deploying
HMP Interface Boards in high density, high volume conference service
applications with our customers," said Mark D. Flanagan, president and CEO of
Envox Worldwide. "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."

    The combination of Dialogic HMP Interface Boards and Dialogic HMP
Software delivers one of the most flexible and competitive platforms on the
market for developing media servers and media gateways. Media functions such
as video, voice and speech processing, conferencing, fax, as well as IP
signaling, RTP, secure RTP, and extensive coder support are distinct
licensable components of Dialogic HMP Software, enabling flexible solution
design. Full-density echo cancellation on the new DNI2410 board enables
significant density and performance improvement. "High-performance echo
cancellation is a MIPs-intensive process," explained Brian Peebles, Chief
Technology Officer for Dialogic. "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."

    Pronexus Inc., an established developer of IVR software based on Dialogic
technologies, worked with the new DNI2410 board during its final beta and test
cycle. "The new DNI2410 board was everything we expected from a professional
telephony board. Not only did applications developed with our VBVoice(R)
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. "The octal density board opens new opportunities for our
customers to be competitive, and compliments the existing single, dual, and
quad-density Dialogic(R) HMP Interface Boards to allow us a complete range of
system density in 1U and 2U rack mount servers when using Dialogic HMP

    Other customers agree. Apex Voice Communications is a leading global
supplier of multimedia application servers and another long-time customer of
Dialogic(R) media and signaling products. Executive Vice President Elhum
Vahdat reported, "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."

    Linux developers can now take advantage of the single-, dual- and
quad-span Dialogic HMP Interface Boards supported under the newly released
Dialogic(R) Host Media Processing Software Release 3.1LIN, as well as a 50%
increase in density to 600 channels per server. The new octal density DNI2410
board is immediately available and supported by Dialogic(R) Host Media
Processing Software Release 3.0 for Windows, with corresponding Linux support
planned for Q4 2007.
