Eicon Releases Diva SDK Version 3.5, Shiva 1100 Wireless VPN Gateway and Shiva 4102 SSL VPN Gateway
Eicon Networks released the Diva Server SDK Version 3.5, a tool for the development of telephony applications. In addition to conventional applications, the Diva Server SDK also enables software developers and system integrators to transfer existing communications solutions on the Diva Server cards to the IP world.
The Diva Server Software Development Kit is a tool for the development and implementation of conventional as well as IP telephony applications. As an addition, the Diva Server SDK Version 3.5 now supports Diva Server SoftIP - a new software which can be used to expand the Diva Server call control and media streaming functions to include IP telephony using the standard protocols for Voice over IP (VoIP) and Fax over IP (FoIP). In combination with Diva Server SoftIP, the Diva Server SDK 3.5 is able to implement all the communications applications developed for the Diva Servers in the IP telephony world.
The Diva Server SDK Version 3.5 offers a package of new functions to optimize software development in the fields of voice, speech and conferencing. New features include extended control options for the integration of audio streams with speech recognition software from third-party suppliers, a 128ms echo canceller and the support of such additional audio formats as G.726, GSM and ADPCM (6kHz and 8kHz) based speech coding. The Diva Server SDK Version 3.5 also enables the differentiated management of user and administrator privileges. In addition, the Diva Server SDK Version 3.5 is equipped with a function set to develop "passive monitoring" applications (call recording). Example programs in source code, such as a VoIP gateway for the conversion between analog, BRI (ISDN), PRI (ISDN) and VoIP connections, are included for a majority of the functions.
The Diva Server SDK Version 3.5 also offers functions for programming call control and media streaming as C/C++ program libraries and ActiveX commands for Visual Basic and .Net environments. In this case, the Diva Server SDK provides programmers with three different interfaces for software development depending on the application scenario.
With the Diva Server Component API, Eicon markets an ActiveX interface for integration in .NET or VB applications. The programming interface can be used with a variety of ActiveX-based development tools, such as Borland Delphi.
The Extended CAPI API is compatible with the CAPI 2.0 standard and offers additional proprietary extensions for handling such additional services as call forwarding and preventing call tromboning. The interface is compatible with all existing CAPI applications.
