Eicon Networks launches Diva Server SoftIP v1.0
BOSTON - Eicon announced the launch of Diva Server SoftIP version 1.0, a new software product that extends Diva Server call control and media streaming capabilities towards IP Telephony, using Voice over IP (VoIP)and Fax over IP (FoIP) signaling protocols.
Software applications - based either on CAPI or Diva Server API (SDK) programming interface - will work with IP Phones and Soft-Phones in an IP Telephony environment. Developers can focus on enhancing their application and will not have to make H.323 or SIP type protocol implementations of their own. In addition, Diva Server SoftIP v1.0 supports key supplementary telephony services such as call hold, call transfer and multi-party conference as well as an upgrade for Fax over IP (according to the T.38 standard) enabling the unified messaging and call center applications to work with existing telephony as well as with IP.
Diva Server SoftIP v1.0 allows for a variety of configuration scenarios. As a stand-alone installation, Diva Server SoftIP v1.0 provides connectivity into the IP network via any standard Ethernet adapter and allows for host-based media processing (HMP). This configuration allows current voice and unified messaging applications to function natively in an IP-based communications environment and it spurs the development of new IP Media Server applications. As in most cases, the introduction of IP-Telephony will happen in a phased approach, Diva Server SoftIP v1.0 can be installed in combination with any other type of Diva Server telephony adapters, be it Analog, ISDN BRI and PRI or E1/T1 interfaces. Such configurations facilitate IP migration as application platforms can be connected to the legacy world via PBX as well as to the IP world via IP PBX or Call Manager systems. As a result, this creates a way for a single application to send and receive calls from standard phones as well as from IP Phones - all through a common programming interface. Finally the combination of Diva Server SoftIP v1.0 and Diva Server telephony adapters also provides the foundation for PSTN/IP gateway applications.
Diva Server SoftIP v1.0 supports the most recent Microsoft Windows based operating systems, including Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server. Using any current PC-Server platform with Intel or AMD type processors Diva Server SoftIP v1.0 can support up to 240 concurrent VoIP or FoIP connections in a pure host-based media processing configuration.
