VoIP Developer Feature: Catching the Telecom Transformation Wave

By Amy Tierney, TMCnet Web Editor

Thanks, in part, to the proliferation of the Internet and ever-changing technology, communications networks are undergoing a major transformation. The new model that appears to be emerging is one that switches control from carriers to developers and end-users control.
While the trend isn’t new, more and more companies are catching on, Rich Tehrani (News - Alert), CEO of Technology Marketing Corporation, wrote in a recent blog posting. For its part, the Internet has been a top driver propelling the trend, helping represent complex data in new and interesting ways, he said.
And companies like Aculab, a U.K.-based provider of enabling technology for the communications market, which offers solution providers and VoIP developers a range of hardware and software services to integrate into high performance, wired and wireless communications solutions, are benefiting.
“Enterprise communications systems have continued to open up, and hosted IVR systems, application generators and APIs for DSP resource boards from companies like Dialogic (News - Alert) and Aculab allowed greater and greater telephony transformation,” Tehrani wrote. That allows “migration from fixed-function communications systems to more open software-controlled components, which could be mixed and matched in a best-of-breed fashion,” he said.
