Some developer news of note is Aculab’s move to have the Prosody X DSP resource board support the PCI Express bus. This is not unexpected of course as this new bus is becoming more popular. Announced here in Santa Clara at TMC’s Communications Developer Conference there is also a promotional package being introduced which the company tells me consists of the following:
Product – Two Prosody X PCIe media processing cards, each supporting 300 voice channels and 2 E1/T1 trunks, with CSS/CAS/SS7 protocols.
Training – One delegate placement on a one day training course ‘Implementing VoIP applications with Prosody X’. Courses will be onsite in Aculab’s offices in Milton Keynes, UK and Needham, USA.
Technical consultancy – Benefit from an Aculab consultant spending a day onsite in your office – sharing expertise on structuring solution architectures based on Prosody X and helping with the actual application development and testing.
Technical support – Free and unlimited access to Aculab’s technical support.
Functionality – Access to Aculab’s complete portfolio of media processing and signaling software, including SIP, H.323 and SS7, with an unrestricted number of channels.
Software updates – Free future software updates, including the planned roadmap functionality for IP and 3G mobile video support, wideband voice codecs, etc.
So the news here is a bit about the new bus support but perhaps most importantly the development package meant to sweeten the pot.
