San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2006
Paraxip Technologies, a supplier of media gateway solutions optimized for the speech, IVR and contact center markets, announced today that Vocalocity, a leading supplier of OEM software for standards-based telephony solutions, has selected the highly innovative Paraxip Gateway software to offer standard SIP-based connectivity to legacy telephony networks. The Paraxip Gateway is an open, software-based VoIP gateway product that provides a comprehensive and highly flexible bridge between the traditional telephony network and IP-based platforms and applications. Vocalocity customers worldwide will thus be able to use the Paraxip Gateway software to connect the standards-based Vocalocity voice browser to a wide variety of switches, PBXs and ACDs.
"The Paraxip Gateway is a perfect fit for our own product strategy”, explained Mike Dickerson, Vocalocity CEO. “We can focus our product architecture around the standard, highly flexible SIP protocol, while maintaining compatibility with traditional telephony integrations through Paraxip’s software products.”
Paraxip’s gateway software is compatible with a wide variety of off-the-shelf computer telephony boards, making the solution suitable for “in-field” software-only upgrades to VoIP, and for building cost effective gateway sub-systems inside hybrid communication platforms. Vocalocity’s OEM customers and their channel partners will use the Paraxip Gateway software both for upgrading the installed base to standard SIP call control as well as for releasing new systems and applications based on SIP.
"Vocalocity and Paraxip have a lot of strong synergies,” said Serge Forest, President & CEO, Paraxip Technologies. “Both companies deliver highly flexible and cost-effective telecom software OEM components built around standards. We are thrilled about the numerous opportunities steaming from our relationship with Vocalocity."
Vocalocity and Paraxip are currently undergoing customer trials with their joint products and expect to start live deployments this quarter.
