Dialogic PCIe Boards Certified by Intervoice

By Erik Linask, Associate Editor,
Internet Telephony magazine

Recognizing the need to ensure its media boards needed to be compatible with evolving technologies, Dialogic Corporation, the former Intel (News - Alert) media and signaling operation, recently announced a new series of PCIe (PCI Express) boards. Verifying Dialogic’s thinking is the company’s latest announcement, that its PCIe DMVB boards have now been certified for and deployed in Intervoice’s Media Exchange Platform.
The boards, designed to enable developers to build next generation communications solutions with the latest converged communications applications, are now embedded in a key element of Intervoice (News - Alert) marketing strategy. Media Exchange is a flexible application delivery platform designed to enable, speedy, wide scale deployments of custom applications for mobile and fixed line operators. 
Indeed, Intervoice confirmed that the PCIe boards had not only been certified for its Media Server, but that the PCIe versions “are identical in feature and function” to Dialogic’s (News - Alert) PCI universal versions.
“This enables our customers who are deploying the current generation of servers to enjoy the full benefit of the Intervoice solution on PCI Express, thanks to the engineering expertise at Dialogic,” said Andy Thomas, vice president of product development at Intervoice. Thomas headed up the testing process.
Intervoice’s testing and verification proved what Dialogic had predicted, that the new PCIe versions its DMVB boards offer full backwards compatibility and can be readily integrated into existing implementations with little, if any, modifications to the applications.
“We were delighted that our boards were certified by the Intervoice team as PCI Express products will be an important part of the Intervoice solution set going forward,” prided Jim Machi, vice president of marketing at Dialogic.  
Dialogic was formed when Eicon Networks (News - Alert) bought the media and signaling group of Intel — and then renamed the new entity. At the time, one of its goals was to ensure it would not be playing catch-up in terms of technology. Rather, Dialogic wanted to be at the forefront of new technology and applications and, given the growing popularity of PCIe boards among developers seeking to ensure network QoS and the like, it has accomplished that goal.
