Intel's Dialogic unit took the wraps off its communications platform, which integrates IP telephony with speech recognition, and voice and fax services.
The Intel Communications Platform provides a framework for basic and advanced communications applications. Its key feature is the way it shuttles data between digital signal and main server processors.
The product enables value-added resellers and system integrators to consolidate telephony and business communications applications from multiple vendors into a single system.
The system features a rack-mountable chassis integrated with multi-function Dialogic boards, management software and embedded Microsoft Windows 2000 server software.
The platform is backed by multi-vendor applications from Dialogic's CT Media Value Network, a community of third-party developers. The network provides tools for IP telephony, unified messaging and automatic speech recognition, among others.
Dialogic is also expected to release a beta version of CT Media 2.0 Resource Development Kit aimed at creators of speech algorithm tools and voice board vendors.
Brian Strachman, an analyst at researcher Cahners In-Stat, claimed Intel has set a new standard for the open communications market with its communications platform. "Intel has removed the many hurdles that other communications server vendors have tried to overcome," he said.
Intel subsidiary Dialogic provides tools and technical services to help third parties develop applications for the internet and telecoms markets. Its products are used in voice, fax, data and speech recognition services.
