Multi Media Platform (MMP) Recognized for Outstanding Innovation
Fort Lauderdale, FL. January 23, 2007 - Dialogic Corporation announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC®)'s INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine (www.itmag.com) has named the Dialogic® Multi Media Platform (MMP) as a recipient of a 2006 Product of the Year Award. INTERNET TELEPHONY has been the VoIP Authority Since 1998(TM).
The Dialogic® Multi Media Platform for AdvancedTCA is a powerful and cost-effective product that can be used to deliver applications such as voice and video mail, color ringback tones, unified messaging, and audio conferencing over IP and PSTN interfaces in wireline and wireless environments using standard protocols for session and media control.
The platform integrates an extended implementation of Dialogic's Host Media Processing (HMP) software with an AdvancedTCA single board computer that includes two Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® LV 2.0 GHz processors designed to boost multitasking computing power. An Advanced Mezzanine Card (AdvancedMC*) is used for echo cancellation and transcoding offload, which significantly enhances media processing performance, especially when low-bit-rate audio coders are required at high-density levels. This combination of media processing power, together with over 30 GB of hard disk storage, means the platform has the capacity to run applications locally on the same blade as an alternative to supporting them remotely over IP connections.
"INTERNET TELEPHONY is proud to bestow Dialogic Corporation with a 2006 Product of the Year Award. Each year INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine recognizes companies that have demonstrated excellence in technological advancement and application refinements," said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Editor-in-Chief of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. "Dialogic has proven with their ATCA IP media product code-named Titusville that they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace. We're proud to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future."
"The selection of the Multi Media Platform (MMP) as Product of the Year both validates and strengthens our value proposition to our customers who are looking for a path to higher density media solutions that will allow them to deliver their unique application services into the demanding environment of carriers," stated Jim Machi, Vice President of Marketing for Dialogic. The Multi Media Platform (MMP) not only realizes the scalability demanded in the service provider market but does so with leading price-performance. Machi explained: "By assigning processor-intensive operations to the mezzanine card we leave more power for host media processing. Since the core processing algorithms are hosted on the CPU, we have the flexibility to meet ever increasing functional, operational and mobility demands through software-only revisions."
Dialogic's early adopter customers are counting on that proposition. "We're seeing that service providers are demanding solutions that maximize reusability and offer investment protection," stated YH Choe, Bridgetec's Executive Vice President and COO. "Our customers in the carrier market segment now investing in IMS and BcN expect us to deliver a minimum of 4 years investment protection. They have learned the importance of this from past experience with new technologies." Mr. Choe explained his choice of Dialogic's multimedia platform for Bridgetech's carrier solutions: "Dialogic's solid level of commitment and demonstrated performance on hosted media processing products and its roadmap help us to win the designs."
