Breakthrough software enables UK developers to build voice mail, IVR and conferencing servers without the need for voice processing hardware


Harrogate, North Yorkshire, 13th November 2003. POST CTI, a Value Added Distributor of standards-based communications products, announces today the UK availability of the Intel(r) NetStructure(tm) Host Media Processing software version 1.1 for Microsoft(r) Windows(r) 2000.

The software enables developers, system integrators and end users to build voice mail, Interactive Voice Response, Conferencing and other media processing servers based on Intel architecture without the need for specialised voice processing boards.

When installed on a system, the Intel NetStructure Host Media Processing software looks like an Intel Dialogic(r) board with DM3 architecture to the customer application but all media processing takes place on the host processor. It can be implemented in a variety of media processing configurations.

This software-based approach helps developers, system integrators and end-users build flexible, scalable, and cost-effective next-generation Internet Protocol (IP) -based media servers while lowering the costs of developing, deploying and operating those servers.

The software supports computing platforms with Intel Celeron, Pentium III, Pentium 4 and Xeon processors with the ability to scale up to 120 concurrent sessions with a mix of voice, speech, T.38 fax and conferencing media processing resources per system - and with at least 50% of CPU and memory remaining for use by an application. The software is also compliant with the ITU H.323 specification for call control in an IP environment.

The Intel NetStructure Host Media Processing software architecture is inherently more flexible than hardware-based resources and the price/performance combination of the solutions built using it will constantly improve following Moore's Law*.

"Communications systems today need to be both cost-effective and flexible, which is why a software-based approach make a great deal of sense" says Neil May, Managing Director of POST CTI. "Host Media Processing will help system developers and end users accelerate time to market for new applications and cut the cost of deployment. It will also simplify the migration of existing applications from traditional telephony environments to IP. The release of Host Media Processing software once again demonstrates Intel's commitment to the development of best-of-breed converged communications building blocks. No other manufacturer has a comparable product in this space".

* Gordon E. Moore, Chairman Emeritus of the Board, Intel Corporation. Moore's law states that "the number of transistors per integrated circuit will double every two years"
