VoiceGenie and Brooktrout Partner
BOSTON - VoiceGenie Technologies Inc. and Brooktrout Technology have partnered to deliver enabling technologies for carrier enhanced services within the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) framework. The joint offering will provide a Media Resource Function (MRF) for next-generation wireline, wireless and broadband network deployments.
VoiceGenie and Brooktrout have a technology partner relationship that is further augmented with this partnership. Under this new arrangement, VoiceGenie will make available the VoiceGenie Media Controller, which acts as the Media Resource Function Controller (MRFC), and the Brooktrout SnowShore IP Media Server will serve as the Media Resource Function Processor (MRFP) as defined by the 3G IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network architecture.
The VoiceGenie Media Controller is a software solution based on open-standards including SIP, VoiceXML, MRCP and CCXML. The VoiceGenie Media Controller provides the MRFC, executing VoiceXML and CCXML applications by controlling MRFPs such as the Brooktrout SnowShore IP Media Server, as well as other media resources such as automated speech recognition (ASR) and text-to-speech (TTS) servers.
The flexibility offered by VoiceXML and CCXML allows for the MRF server to be controlled by SIP-based application servers supporting a number of services from messaging and multi-party conferencing to prepaid services and video applications. It also allows standalone VoiceXML/CCXML-based services to be deployed on the MRF as well.
The capabilities of the VoiceGenie MRFC allows for resource allocation and usage of all MRFP resources in either single pools or in multiple distributed clusters.
