Comverse Launches VoiceXML Browser and Gateway Thursday 20 September 2001 PDF Print Comverse, a unit of Comverse Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: CMVT), and the world's leading supplier of software and systems enabling network-based multimedia enhanced communications services, today announced its new VoiceXML browser and gateway. Comverse's VoiceXML browser and gateway enables end-users to access web-based information and perform transactions by speaking naturally into any wireless or wireline telephone. The Comverse advanced voice portfolio also includes a voice messaging and voice portal platform for both consumer and enterprise end-users. Comverse's network-based voice browser allows users to interact with Internet or Intranet-based data and audio content entirely by voice. VoiceXML is the standard for building voice-activated web applications such as information services, games and call centre applications. Comverse's gateway is a carrier-grade platform for running VoiceXML 1.0-compliant telephony applications. The core component of the Comverse VoiceXML gateway is the Comverse VoiceXML interpreter - the software that reads and processes VoiceXML applications. The interpreter gives service providers real-time control of multiple VoiceXML applications being accessed simultaneously by multiple users. "Comverse's VoiceXML browser and gateway offers end-users of voice web applications the same ease of use, timeliness, and security that they have grown to expect on the visual web," said Zeev Bregman, Chief Executive Officer of Comverse. "The open Comverse VoiceXML browser and gateway allows service providers to use the same data and application/business logic as existing web applications, enabling them to rapidly deploy new VoiceXML applications for subscribers using traditional circuit-switched or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) connectivity. Comverse's new, intuitive VoiceXML browser and gateway can also be used across existing enhanced services platforms, making Comverse an all-encompassing partner for service providers seeking additional revenue by delivering enhanced voice services." - ends - About Comverse Comverse, a unit of Comverse Technology, Inc.
