Voxeo's turnkey servers uniquely enable us to deploy a single, low-cost platform for any telephony application requirement.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2005
Voxeo Corporation announced its new line of standards-based turnkey communication servers today at SpeechTEK West. The new VoiceCenter Fusion Server product consolidates seven previously separate platforms into a single, integrated communications solution.
VoxeoÂs VoiceCenter Fusion Servers are the first turnkey telephony platforms to offer VoiceXML IVR, CCXML call control, speech recognition, speech synthesis, call conferencing, call recording and a PSTN-to-SIP Voice over IP (VOIP) gateway in one integrated, rack-mount server. All of the Fusion Server's capabilities are built around the SIP VOIP standard, enabling rapid integration with both existing and new PSTN, PBX, and VOIP deployments.
ÂVoiceCenter Fusion Servers offer flexible, universal telephony ports with best-of-breed technology from Voxeo, Nuance, ScanSoft, Paraxip, and Intel/Dialogic,Â said Zack Angelo, Director of Software Development at Versabar. "Voxeo's turnkey servers uniquely enable us to deploy a single, low-cost platform for any telephony application requirement."
The VoiceCenter Fusion ServerÂs capabilities include:
VoiceXML IVR Â enables enterprises to create and deploy telephony applications that integrate with their existing web infrastructure to automate recurring sales, service, collections, inquiry and support calls to and from their customers.
Call Control XML (CCXML) Â delivers capabilities to intelligently screen, transfer, and initiate traditional and SIP telephony calls, including integration with call center platforms via a built-in Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) interface.
Speech Recognition and Synthesis Â allows callers to use comfortable, spoken commands to control the Fusion platform, and allows the Fusion platform to respond with human-like spoken audio output.
Call conferencing Â lets up to 48 callers meet in a crystal-clear telephone conference. Plus, the CCXML-based conferencing engine allows enterprises to create custom conferencing applications that integrate with existing directory servers or applications.
Call recording Â provides call logging / recording capabilities on all or a portion of all calls to address call center audit, third party financial verification, corporate security, FCC telesales, and other call recording requirements.
PSTN-to-SIP VOIP Gateway Â connects the Fusion Server's SIP-based features Â and external SIP-based telephones or platforms - to any PBX, call center, local phone company, or long distance carrier via built-in analog or digital T1/E1/PRI phone jacks.
Analysts and industry experts at Forrester Research predict that VOIP-based IVR Â used at the core of VoxeoÂs Fusion Server Â will be one of Âonly a few technology areas [that] will generate solid enterprise demandÂ in 2005.
"This year VOIP is crossing the 'early-adopter chasm' in the United States," said Jeff Pulver, industry expert and CEO of Pulver.com. "VOIP and standards-based application platforms are being deployed by enterprises in 2005, and should see continued growth in 2006 and beyond.Â
The new product includes four models with varying telephone port types and densities:
Â VoiceCenter IVR Fusion Server 4 Â 4 analog ports starting at $4,495
Â VoiceCenter IVR Fusion Server 12 Â 12 analog ports starting at $9,995
Â VoiceCenter IVR Fusion Server 24 Â 24 digital T1/PRI ports starting at $16,995
Â VoiceCenter IVR Fusion Server 48 Â 48 digital T1/PRI ports starting at $26,995

Voxeo's VoiceCenter Fusion Servers complement VoxeoÂs existing VoiceCenter IVR Software and VoiceCenter IVR hosting solutions, and are available immediately.
