October 2010 Archives

I wonder if any of you based in the UK remember the British Telecom television advertisements of the late 1980s featuring ‘Beattie’, played by Maureen Lipman? In the most frequently quoted episode, Beattie’s pride leads her to see only the silver lining in her grandson’s otherwise poor GCSE results. Finding that he passed only pottery and sociology, she declares, “An ology! He gets an ology and he says he's failed. Continue Reading...

Military manoeuvres

The announcement this week in the UK of the outcome of the Government’s strategic defence review has placed such matters in sharper focus prior to the MILCOM show in San Jose, CA. at the end of the month. Looking for silver linings to the dark clouds looming over our storm troopers, it’s all in the name.

Conventional forces appear to have taken a massive hit, with various fighter aircraft, warships, tanks and artillery all doomed. The high-profile casualties are the most recognisable names – the Nimrod MRA4 spy-planes and the Harrier jump jets (losing out to the Tornadoes).

But it’s not all doom and gloom as a round dozen new Chinook helicopters will be ordered.

Aculab may be better known for voice applications where our award winning hardware and software is used as the core technology to power contact centre IVR systems, voice conferencing servers, etcetera, but perhaps less well known is the fact that those very same media processing hardware boards (Prosody X) and host media processing software (Prosody S) also support many other functionalities:

  • Modem protocol support (wide-ranging support for ITU-T V series modem protocols) and V.150.1 Modem over IP (MoIP)
  • Video communications (RTP-based video sessions, H.263 and H.264 packetisation)
  • Full SIP stack, unique SIP redundancy capability, and H.323 call control
  • Full range of fax capabilities (T.30, T.38 up to V.34 speed, G.711 fax pass-through)
This post describes the fax solutions available from Aculab.

For best flexibility and cost-effectiveness use a software solution

As communications platforms evolve to become fully IP-based, a shift is taking place in favour of software solutions. A modern server with a multi-core processor is more than capable of running the application code and handling all the media processing work required. The good news for Aculab customers is that we have a common API for our hardware and software products so there is no learning curve to moving from one to the other, and in addition, the features are common between the software and hardware approaches.

Whilst other vendors of media processing hardware and software sell fax features separately, with Aculab, you get all the standard voice communications capability, including fax, at one low price.
