Pronexus and CYGCOM Introduce ReadiVoIP, a Starter Kit for Rapid Enterprise Application Development in VoIP

Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) November 19, 2004

Pronexus Inc., a leading provider of computer telephony and speech software solutions, today announced the availability of ReadiVoIP, the ‘Rapid Enterprise Application Development in VoIP’ starter kit. This special package enables developers to create, test, and deploy hardware-free IP telephony applications for the unmatched price of US$ 495. ReadiVoIP is upgradeable to a full development platform for the promotional price of US$ 1,750, which includes one year of unlimited eSupport by CYGCOM.

The ReadiVoIP starter kit delivers cost savings and enhanced productivity to VoIP applications by bundling VBVoice from Pronexus, Host Media Processing software (HMP) from Intel and an IP phone. Intel® NetStructure™ Host Media Processing (HMP) software allows users to quickly and cost-effectively deploy software-only IP media servers. The media processing functions are handled on the host CPU, increasing performance while lowering overall system costs. Pronexus’ VBVoice further facilitates the development of VoIP applications by seamlessly supporting HMP software from Intel in a visual call flow environment integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.

“The combination of Intel® NetStructure™ Host Media Processing (HMP) and VBVoice accelerates the development of sophisticated VoIP applications, allowing users to quickly experience the benefits of software-only IP telephony with all of the features and performance expected of DSP-based solutions,” said Jim Machi, director of marketing, Modular Communications Building Block Division, Intel. “By using standards-based building blocks from Intel in their platform, solution providers will be able to deliver flexible, scalable solutions to the marketplace.”

ReadiVoIP includes:

• Pronexus VBVoice 5.2, 90-day enhanced evaluation version – VBVoice is a rapid application development environment for business-critical speech and telephony solutions. The tool combines an easy-to-use visual call flow environment, with fully programmable controls. Developers can leverage familiar programming skills in industry-standard languages such as VB.NET, C# and other languages supported by Visual Studio .NET. Four runtime licenses are included in the bundle.

• Four Intel® NetStructure™ Host Media Processing (HMP) Resources –This standard-based software from Intel enables customers to build full-featured, scalable, and cost-effective software-only IP media servers. It offers flexibility in configuring media processing features and cost of ownership savings, because it only requires a standard computer without involving any proprietary hardware. This allows customers to quickly and cost effectively bring additional features and technologies to their applications.

• Uniden IP Phone - Equipped with an integrated Ethernet switch and using Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), Uniden’s UIP 200 VoIP phone will facilitate the testing phase of the application development process.

• CYGCOM eSupport - three months of Internet-based priority support services with a 24 hour response time to assist and provide availability to knowledge-based resources during the 90 day evaluation period.

“Enterprise organizations are increasingly turning to VoIP,” commented Jeff Valliant, President & CEO of CYGCOM. “ReadiVoIP contains all the necessary elements, including support, for enterprise developers to evaluate the potential for Voice over IP before committing to a full fledge deployment.”

“VBVoice 5.2 lets developers realize the promise of HMP,” commented Gary T. Hannah, President & CEO at Pronexus. “We are pleased to offer developers the opportunity to experience the power of HMP at a minimal investment through this bundle”.
