PIKA Technologies Announces PCI-Express Analog Gateway Board Addition to Host-Based Processing TDM Hardware Portfolio
Ottawa, Canada - September 11, 2006 - PIKA Technologies today announced the availability of the PIKA Analog Gateway Board, offering further evidence of the company's commitment to providing cost-effective TDM connectivity options for AllOnHost(tm) (host-based processing) technology.
"Last spring, we announced the release of our Digital (T1/E1) Gateway Board, the first in a new generation of PIKA TDM connectivity hardware. This hardware is specially designed and optimized to complement our host-based processing technology, where media processing is accomplished using PIKA AllOnHost software resources. Now, we are announcing the Analog Gateway Board," stated Doug Petty, VP of Technology and Operations for PIKA. "This newest board provides up to 16 analog trunk (FXO) or logging ports and is software-configurable for multiple countries."
The board is in a 9.5 inch PCI Express format and will be ready to ship in October. Early next year, PIKA will release two additional gateway boards. The first will support 12 analog station (FXS) ports. The second, a PCI Express version of the PIKA Digital (T1/E1) Gateway Board.
With PIKA's patent-pending AllOnHost(tm) architecture, standard voice, tone, fax and modem applications that have traditionally run only on DSPs can now also run on the host without loss of quality or performance. AllOnHost software runs on Windows and Linux operating systems and on Intel and AMD processors.
PIKA's AllOnHost technology incorporates interfaces for both IP and TDM networks, allows applications to make and receive calls, and provides media processing capabilities. Media processing applications include play and record, tone and DTMF detection/generation, conference summing and low latency switching. Codec support includes G.711 and G.729.
"At PIKA we provide the flexibility so that developers can choose between AllOnBoard(tm)(DSP-based) media processing, AllOnHost media processing, or a blend of both depending on application requirements," said Doug Petty. "We provide access to both from the same SDK."
