Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2004

Today, Vocomo® Corporation, the pioneer in next-generation Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems, announced immediate availability of its new open standards Voice-over-IP (VoIP) IVR platform: VocomoVoice® Response for VoIP. This network-attached IVR platform allows businesses to efficiently deploy their customer service applications in a single IP-centric network.

Intended for customer self-service and call centers with less that 30 agents, Vocomo has launched a new generation of IVR products that enable a significantly lower total cost of ownership. This advanced VoIP IVR software, with support for VoiceXML, SIP, H.323, and RTP, enables developers to build flexible, scalable, and cost-effective IVR applications. With VocomoVoice Response for VoIP, enterprises and service providers can realize the multitude of business benefits IP Telephony has to offer. Organizations can reduce costs, enhance productivity, improve customer service, and simplify management as they move toward an IP-centric communications model. Vocomo Voice Response for VoIP is the next step in telephony software innovation and IP Telephony for IVR systems.

“A network-attached IVR platform offers clear and compelling benefits for enterprise communications,” said Danny Lange, CEO of Vocomo. “Allowing all communications to flow over a single infrastructure – the network – lowers installation and maintenance costs, makes it easier and more affordable to deploy IVR systems for phone automation, and provides a flexible application environment that enables voice and data to more easily work together.”

VocomoVoice Response for VoIP is designed for a server platform based on Intel architecture, and integrates with Intel® NetStructure™ Host Media Processing software in place of specialized digital signal processor (DSP) boards for call handling and control.

WebKeepers, Inc. Affiliates With SWsoft, Inc. Announces Release of Cost-Effective VPS Service for 24.95 Dollars a Month

(PRWEB) October 20, 2004

WebKeepers is headquartered in California, United States. The Company is headed by CEO Paul Vinueza and its website is located at http://webk.net/. GMO Hosting and Technologies, Inc. (“GMO H&T”) is based in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan and is capitalized at 3.9 million dollers. The company president is Mitsuru Aoyama, and its website is located at http://gmo-ht.com/. SWsoft, Inc. is headquartered in Virginia, United States. The CEO is Serguei Beloussov and the website is located at http://www.swsoft.net/.

The VPS Service developed by WebKeepers focuses on a stable operating performance that is on a par with the performance expected of a private server, as well as the functionality and convenience of a control panel that can handle both Japanese and English. Because the service incorporates SWsoft’s HSPcomplete 3.0, the account administrator is able to execute server administrative operations easily, such as maintaining multiple domains, adding users, starting up an Apache server, installing applications and managing the database—operations that were difficult with the conventional shared server—by using the control panel with its graphical user interface. By assigning partitions to multiple domains, a private control panel is provided for each partition, and the end user can operate an independent website. The VPS Service responds to a broad array of needs from individuals to corporations operating multiple domains.

Main features of the VPS Service

1)Excellent management function for server resources The management function assigns server resources such as memory and CPU to each account equally and automatically, preventing deterioration in server performance caused by high-load site operation.

2)Flexible server operation with root authority. The root authority enables users to make Apache settings to suit their purpose, install applications and reboot the server. In other words, the service offers the kind of flexibility found with a private server.

3)Easy backup with a simple click. It is easy to make multiple backups with mirroring by RAID and disk backup executed every day. It is also possible to readily back up from the control panel at the user side.

4)HSPcomplete 3.0 control panel compatible with both Japanese and English. The account administrator has access to a control panel with displays in both Japanese and English. By setting the user authority of the registered user, a control panel configured to that authority can be provided for each user. It is possible to execute all operations required for server management via the control panel, which boasts outstanding functionality.

To make the service available to customers worldwide, a Spanish-language control panel will be added to the English and Japanese versions in December 2004.

About SWsoft

CompAmerica, the GiantKillers™, Announces the “Wonder PC” Program

(PRWEB) October 22, 2004

CompAmerica announces that its 'warmer, friendlier, more proactive service department' and “better products, service and breadth of choices” make up its “GiantKiller” offerings: "The Wonder PC's." They can be found by punching the “PCs >” button on its home page at http://compamerica.com.

New LGA-775 PC's and CompAmerica’s own “VFTA” technology – which saves personal computers from primary hard drive failure by providing an automatic mirror image of the C: drive in real time – are featured in this section of its website.

“We can provide you anything from slim, widescreen 5 pound Centrino Laptops of our own to Cisco’s extraordinary Enterprise Routers, at a lower price. We have the technology people ready to program and install them for you! We simply eat their lunch!” stated CompAmerica’s Chairman Jack Shulman, discussing how it is that his company has a nearly zero failure rate, and isn’t overwhelmed with service requests on it’s 24x7 tech support lines. Shulman innovated the first desktop windowed personal computers in 1974 at a time when desktop computers “cost between $ 10 and $ 20,000, so consumers had no idea there were such things 20 years before Microsoft first released Windows 95.”

Shulman was also involved in the development of what became the PC architecture and other desktops in the 70’s, as well as heading up outside design and programming support for an IBM project called “Office of the Future” that led up to the PC, MAC, Windows and Mac/Os.

“It’s interesting how it is that marketing companies make it all look like one day someone stepped off the bus with a board and some floppies, and the next day there was PC Dos, then MAC/OS and Windows, and now the so-called ‘arrival’ of Linux. Linux, for example, arrived in 1965 not 2005. Those of us who innovate such inventions and discoveries are often completely or even deliberately forgotten in the perennial recycling of ideas that goes on in this industry. It is perverse to mis-attribute the origination of concept to Bill Gates or Paul Allan or Steve Jobs or Linus Torvald. While these marketing wizards do get incessantly wealthy as ball carriers in the current Generations of recycling/reintegrating our ideas, they did not originate any of those ideas. Those of us who invent the stuff are usually completely or even deliberately forgotten. We are left behind to get recycled by IBM and others as well, forced to come up with newer ideas while they hoard the vast quantities of revenue in outside businesses which leverage our past work. Such is what we believe about Dell, we believe them to be IBM PC Company with a modernized business model but MORE OF THE SAME products recycled into a 2nd and 3rd Generation marketing program. The recognizable traits of IBM recycling our handiwork is usually only recognizable to us, the originators. The consumers are usually well fooled.”

CompAmerica maintains a website at http://www.compamerica.com which has been deemed “highly innovative” by some. The website incorporates a “minimum number of clicks” (MNOC) architecture, a “streamlined shopping carts” approach, and an "Open Warehousing" design.

Payment is accepted electronically through secure payment or by phone or in person: checks, standard credit cards by phone, email or web, as well as PayPal by web, and Western Union.

The CompAmerica website is subdivided into several categories: PCs, Laptops, Servers, Industrial Computers and Technical Support. It claims to maintain the largest driver library of any computer manufacturer on the Internet. It also includes popular “Live Chat” and “Group Services”, along with a private intranet for IT and B2B buyers called the “B2B eStore”, which in partnership with Cnet.com, provides what may be the most concise, informative comparative shopping tool and intranet shopping cart system ever devised.

Visuals are simple; some products include a “select a picture” approach to providing full 3D views. A powerful Memory Configurator allows anyone to match memory to the product they are seeking to upgrade, and will also provide all the parameters they wanted to know about their own system, such as: fastest CPU, maximum Memory, type and style, bus speed and so forth. The Search engine is extremely fast at searching through nearly 8 million pages of information, and can find nearly any product in the industry or it’s equivalent.

CompAmerica has stated publicly that it believes companies on the web are “cleverly manipulating their shopping cart so as to lock you into purchasing a product, whether you want that one or not, they could be accused of bait and switch or worse, crate and switch.” Crate and Switch is the practice of subtly mis-stating the features of a product so it is not fully understood by the purchaser until they "uncrate it" after getting it to their home or office.

CompAmerica says that it's “Open Warehouse Web Architecture”, which also provides ADA Section 508 conforming products and services, is “next generation”, a site which uses the best practices to insure that consumers and IT and Business and Government are not patronized by the “Self Aggrandizement of No thought, Limited Choice, Cut Corners products” offered “in Dell Hell”.

"Ultimately, it's the Human Factor that makes the difference. A compassionate, interested vendor who understands technology is far easier to work with and far more accurate at fullfilling your precise needs, than a pushy, aggressive salesman who has scripts on how to mislead you into buying more than you need, while getting less than you thought. Our sales staff are all cross trained system engineers, and that means you get the right products at the right time with the right features, backed by common sense!" added Shulman.

“http://www.compamericadirect.com” and “http://www.CompAmerica.com” were developed by a team of experienced web developers who elected to go with a “slightly lower tech, higher degree of customer choice” environment that “didn’t automate everything, with natural jumping off points for the public that would allow them to elect to make a phone call to a Human Being at CompAmerica, who could advise them more cogently, without the kind of ‘sell them a PC at any cost, without any real choice’ processes” that others allegedly provide.

CompAmerica is a leader in industry innovations who can be reached by phone at 888-ASK-CSS-1, and by email at e-mail protected from spam bots.

Conceptomatics Announces the ConceptServer 1.00

(PRWEB) November 12, 2004

The ConceptServer is used as a fast text-processing back end for text mining, automatic categorization, text summarization, spidering, indexing, and agent-based applications.

"The ConceptServer lets organizations efficiently mine large volumes of textual data that previously may have been too costly to analyze in a timely manner," said Douglas Snead, Technical Vice President of Conceptomatics.

The ConceptServer rapidly processes asynchronous client requests to automatically classify and categorize textual data. The server replies are standard XML envelopes which detail categories assigned to the text. The categories may then be used as "tags" to augment full text indexing and other Information Retrieval (IR) tasks.

To classify text, the ConceptServer uses a thesaurus-like vocabulary known as a "Concept Dictionary." A "Concept Dictionary" is an XML document that details topic categories, key words and phrases associated with categories, as well as relationships between categories. For example, the key words "cannabis" and "THC" might index to the same concept.

The Conceptomatics ConceptServer typically processes anywhere from about 8 up to more than 40 news articles a second, depending on the size of the document to be examined, size of the Concept Dictionary used, CPU speed, and system load.

Several ConceptServer back end processors are currently running on pilot web sites, where they continuously processes textual data. Each ConceptServer uses a dictionary specialized for the client and for the topics desired.

Sangoma Technologies Announces Premium T1/E1/J1 Voice Support For Asterisk And Other Pc-Based Voip Projects

Toronto (PRWEB) February 23, 2005

Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSXV: STC) (http://www.sangoma.com), a leading provider of connectivity hardware and software products for WANs and Internet infrastructure, announces that its family of AFT (Advanced Flexible Telecommunication) T1/E1/J1 voice/data cards are now customized to work with Asterisk, the free Linux PBX software that is revolutionizing telecommunications on VoIP and conventional telephone networks.

Capable of handling both voice and data and supporting all popular open source projects including Asterisk, YATE, SIPxchange, OpenPBX and others, the A101, A102 and A104 offer a new market standard for performance, reliability, compatibility, support and ease of installation. With less demand on the host CPU, Sangoma's WANPIPE® drivers take advantage of the AFT technology to substantially reduce the processing required to handle TDM voice calls. This reduces the CPU's workload and results in fewer dropped calls, less jitter and better voice quality for callers.

"In all companies of any size, telephone connections are at least as vital as the electricity supply," says Sangoma Technologies President and CEO David Mandelstam. "For soft PBX technology to succeed, reliability and perfect voice quality have to be a given, even before a user can begin to enjoy the powerful and customizable features this technology offers. Our role in this enterprise is to provide the quality in TDM interfaces that allow the soft PBX and VoIP community to realize the potential of all their hard work and imagination."

"Sangoma's family of AFT voice/data cards enables it to offer a new price/performance standard that the competition cannot match," says Halo Kwadrat's Vice-President Michal Bielicki - Sangoma's distributor in Europe. "With Sangoma, we expect to both dominate and expand the integrated T1/E1/J1 connectivity marketplace based on their quality and unparalleled technology."

"The true promise of AFT technology lies in our ability to field upgrade not only the device driver code, but the card's FPGA firmware as we improve our TDM voice support," adds Mandelstam. "Projects already under way include hardware level PRI support and true time-slice channelization on-board. These improvements plus others related to echo and codec manipulation can be retrofitted to existing AFT hardware as they become available."

AFT card features:

·    Compatible and Flexible -- Sangoma's voice/data cards are self-sensing for 3.3v and 5v PCI slots and software configurable for T1, E1 or J1. They share interrupts properly between themselves and other PCI compatible devices, supporting unlimited numbers of cards per PC chassis. The AFT series cards all conform to the 2U form factor, both in height and length, allowing users to install many cards in a slimline 2U chassis so as to maximize server capacity.

·     Rock Solid Data Modes -- In mixed voice/data installations, the data streams are separated out in hardware and handled completely independently of the voice channels by Sangoma's standard WANPIPE® data handlers that have been carrying IP traffic for many years. Only the voice-related traffic gets diverted to the Asterisk system. The result is a system that is totally reliable, fast and well managed, while the CPU load is drastically reduced.

·    Certification -- Certification compliance is critical to every Sangoma customer. All Sangoma voice/data cards have undergone CE, FCC part 15 and FCC Part 68 certification, and every board is properly marked.

·    Sangoma Trust and Quality -- As part of its commitment to quality assurance, each Sangoma card is individually inspected and burned-in prior to shipment in protective anti-static wrap complete with cables, manuals and CDs. The result is a very low dead-on-arrival rate and high reliability in service.

Sangoma Technologies' current solution set includes:

·    WANPIPE® internal media gateways, transporting TDM voice, IP data and video over T3/E3, T1/E1, ADSL and serial links ·    High performance and reliable communications modules for OEM projects involving ATM, Frame Relay, X.25, SS7, HDLC, BiSync and other protocols . The WAN Edukit™ protocol teaching tool for educational institutions ·    POS (Point-of-Sale) interface cards for security and customer loyalty applications
