Quintum Technologies Creates a VoIP Applications Bundle That Offers Quick and Cost-Effective Converged Communications Options to Customers

EATONTOWN, N.J., Feb. 14 / -- Quintum has established a new bundled offer that will feature a fully tested and interoperable solution utilizing the Quintum Tenor(R) AS and BX lines of VoIP switches and gateways and Intel NetStructure(R) Host Media Processing (HMP) Software. This offering, which will be available from Paracon, is targeted towards Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) who develop industry-standard, next-generation converged communication services utilizing voice and fax features based on Host Media Processing (HMP) from Intel and seek support of BRI and FXO/FXS connectivity.

"Solutions utilizing Host Media Processing from Intel offer a rich set of features that allow sophisticated voice applications to be developed in a significantly accelerated timeframe," said Charles Rutledge, Vice President of Marketing for Quintum Technologies. "We are extremely pleased to be working with Intel to provide the converged communications marketplace with a complete solution that allows applications to be deployed quickly and cost- effectively."

HMP software from Intel performs media processing tasks on general-purpose servers based on Intel(R) architecture without the use of specialized hardware. When installed on a system, the software looks like an Intel Dialogic board with DM3 architecture to the customer application, but all media processing takes place on the host processor. The addition of Intel HMP software to Quintum's Switches and Gateways solution set helps to complete the available line of network access solutions.

"The combination of Quintum Tenor products with Intel NetStructure(R) HMP provides Intel customers with an easy and cost-effective solution to deploy converged communications solutions," said Timothy Moynihan, director of marketing, Modular Communications Platform Group, of Intel. "This bundle from Paracon allows the market to rapidly develop advanced solutions supporting a wide range of connectivity needs of the marketplace without interoperability concerns."

ISVs and OEMs who are looking to develop converged communications solutions will benefit from using Quintum's Switches and Gateways with Intel(R) Host Media Processing software by allowing them to rapidly develop products for new and existing markets with solutions including: IP-PBX, Contact/Call Center Applications, Messaging, IVR Services, Conferencing, and SMS Services. Quintum's unique VoIP switching along with Intel's advanced communications software provides the ability to easily integrate with the traditional telephone network and telephone equipment, as well as VoIP-based systems, providing a unique set of features including programmable dial plan support, intelligent call routing, and survivable failover.

"This gateway bundle is a testament to how well Intel and Quintum's solutions complement each other," said Clay Sorensen, president of Paracon. "Thanks to this bundled solution, our solution providers are able to offer a converged communications solution to their end-user customers that is not only easy to implement but also offers enhanced call quality and improved bandwidth. We're pleased to be the source of such an industry-leading communications solution."

The bundle will feature the following:
- A Quintum Tenor(R) ASM400 gateway
- Intel NetStructure(R) Host Media Processing Software (4 ports of voice, call control, and RTP)

An additional bundle that includes the above items and 2 fax ports is available as well.

The Intel and Quintum bundle enables Paracon to offer pricing that will allow both ISVs and OEMs to offer an attractive base solution utilizing HMP from Intel and Quintum Tenor(R) AS and BX lines to their customer set.
