Vail Systems Releases SIP Telephony Interface Manager for Microsoft Speech Server 2004
Vail Systems announced the availability of the Vail SIP Telephony Interface Manager (TIM). Designed to Microsoft specifications, the Vail SIP TIM connects Microsoft Speech Server 2004 to SIP-based IP telephony networks. With this release, companies can now combine open standards speech and next generation VoIP technology in an integrated Windows Server System platform.
Vail SIP TIM does not require any additional specialized telephony hardware. All telephony configuration is managed through built-in management interfaces in Windows Server 2003 like the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and the Microsoft Management Console (MMC). Moreover, SALT speech applications written for Microsoft Speech Server can migrate between Vail SIP TIM and other TIM deployments.
Based on Vail's SIP telephony platform technology, the Vail SIP TIM includes media and call control and CTI support. Features such as scalable audio conferencing and call queuing and call transfer without port restrictions further extend the flexibility and scalability of Microsoft Speech Server.
