PIKA T1/E1 and analog boards now compatible with FreeSWITCH

PIKA T1/E1 and analog boards are now compatible with FreeSWITCH.

Some good news for PIKA this morning worth reading...

PIKA Technologies Inc., a developer of media-processing hardware and software, today announced that its entire family of analog and digital host media processing (HMP) boards is now compatible with FreeSWITCH, an open-source telephony platform typically used by large telecommunications companies deploying soft switches and other voice applications.

This is the latest partnership that PIKA has announced as part of its mission to support open-source-telephony application developers, having previously announced compatibility with the Asterisk platform.

"PIKA is thrilled to be partners with the FreeSWITCH community. This will mean more options for application development companies across the globe who are building FreeSWITCH-based solutions," said Terry Atwood, vice president of sales, marketing and customer care at PIKA. "Now, FreeSWITCH users will have access to PIKA’s robust media-processing software and hardware, and as a result, be able to stabilize as well as add incremental value to their applications."
FreeSWITCH is designed to facilitate the creation of voice and chat-driven products scaling from a soft phone up to a soft switch. It can be used as a simple switching engine, a PBX, a media gateway or a media server to host IVR applications using simple scripts or XML to control the call flow.

"I was really excited to get PIKA hardware working in FreeSWITCH," said Anthony Minessale, Lead Developer and author of FreeSWITCH. "It’s a welcome edition to our spec sheet. It’s been long anticipated by our user base and I’m pleased to announce we have it working in time for our May 26th 1.0 release. I’m looking forward to meeting with PIKA in person this August at Clue Con 2008 http://www.cluecon.com."

The PIKA product suite comprises a range of hardware and software designed to support applications built on open-source platforms. These building blocks are designed to provide cost-effective and reliable network connectivity to bridge between legacy TDM networks and open source-based IP telephony applications. With the PIKA Daytona analog FXO (trunk) and FXS (station) boards, and the PrimeNet digital T1/E1 boards, FreeSWITCH developers can select the hardware that meets their application’s particular needs.
