NMS Communications Delivers Enhancements to its Award-Winning Voice Processing Platform Enabling Enhanced Services and Enterprise Applications Providers to Build Large Scale, Low Cost, IP-Based Solutions Wednesday 12 December 2001 PDF Print Company Adds Plug-and-Play PCI Version to CG6000 Family and Expands Operating System Support NMS Communications (NASDAQ: NMSS), the leading supplier of technology for tomorrow's networks, today announced the availability of new product versions and expanded operating system support that will allow enterprise and service provider developers to deploy low cost IP capabilities that scale throughout their organisations. NMS' award-winning Convergence GenerationT (CG) 6000 platform is now available in a PCI form factor, providing the highest-density solution in the industry and the ability to easily deploy PC-based IP services including conferencing, IVR, fax and speech recognition. The CG6000 PCI is part of NMS Communications' Convergence Generation family - a group of full-function, carrier-class software and hardware platforms that support "in-the-network" deployments of IP-based communications solutions, services and applications where scalability, reliability, flexibility and high availability are absolute requirements. The CG6000 is ideal for simplified development of IP Media Gateways and IP Media Servers - all critical to the creation of next-generation IP-based enhanced services and supporting infrastructures. Additionally, the CG6000 PCI platform offers high-density trunking and media processing at reduced costs, 120 ports per PCI slot, supporting IVR, conferencing, fax and speech recognition, as well as IP and PSTN connectivity - important features for those developers building enterprise-focused solutions such as enterprise voice servers and IP-based contact centre gateways. "The CG6000 is an excellent technology for Edify's Electronic Workforce, allowing Edify to take advantage of the scaleability, versatility and power of the CG6000 that will ultimately allow us to deliver cost-effective, IP-based Voice Self Service solutions to our customers. The CG 6000 helps enable our vision of the Virtual Customer Service Representative (vCSR) across multiple self-service channels," said Ted Bray, voice product manager for Edify. "We continue to work closely with NMS for enabling technologies such as the CG6000 because the demand for scalable IP-based solutions will only grow in the years to come. With products like the CG 6000, Edify will meet that demand." IP-based enterprise solutions will enable enterprises to rapidly deploy new IP-based contact centres thereby eliminating the need for dedicated telephony lines for remote users and satellite locations. By deploying a single IP-based infrastructure that is ready to accommodate all communication channels, network management and administration is streamlined. However, one of the benefits of the CG6000 is its ability to bridge traditional (PSTN) and contemporary (IP) networks giving enterprises the flexibility to support their communications infrastructure of choice. - ends - About Edify Corporation Edify Corporation provides end-to-end CRM solutions throughout the enterprise for more than 2,000 companies worldwide.
