PIKA Technologies announces VoIP-enabled voice boards

OTTAWA, Canada, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The volume of VoIP news is on the rise; it is clear that the IP-centric world has arrived. PIKA Technologies, a developer of innovative computer plug-in voice boards and software, is proud to announce that VoIP capabilities will be delivered in PIKA MonteCarlo Software Developer Kit (SDK), Release 6.2, in June 2004. Using PIKA boards and software, application developers will be able to design cost-effective VoIP- enabled voice and fax solutions for their customers.

PIKA MonteCarlo 6.2 will include VoIP-based DSP applications that enable VoIP capabilities on all MM-series digital- and analog-interface boards. It's important to point out the innovative architecture of PIKA boards, referred to as "All-on-Board" technology. All-on-Board allows developers to do voice, fax, conferencing, VoIP and data on any MM-series PIKA board. Developers control the combination of DSPs and the number of channels served by each application. If more DSP processing power is required, the developer can add DSP modules to the board without using up additional system slots. Release 6.2 will make it easier and more cost effective for application developers to incorporate VoIP into new or existing voice and fax solutions.
"VoIP has been on the product roadmap of application development companies for some time. Now that the hype has faded way to customers paying for the capability, many developers will begin to design new applications or VoIP-enable existing applications," said Doug Petty, VP Technology, PIKA Technologies Inc. "Release 6.2 continues our promise to bring innovative features and functionality to the application developer community so that they can deliver next-generation solutions to their customers."
PIKA MonteCarlo 6.2 will deliver the following enhancements:

New DSP features:
- VoIP
- Dial pulse detection

New digital features:
- Clear channel (for external signaling stack compatibility)
- ISDN hold and retrieve (1B channel transfer)

New configuration, logging and diagnostics features:

stopping the application: framing, encoding, line build out, and
protocol end for T1 and E1 line interfaces
- Logging:
- Improved log file parameter control (size, wrap, and more)
- Layer 1 monitoring
- System diagnostic information enhancements
- Improved API parameter expansion

Operating systems supported:

PIKA Technologies continues to invest heavily in their technology offerings. As an example, the company is working on integration to Microsoft SpeechServer and Microsoft.Net. PIKA Technologies promises to continue to deliver the new features and functionality developers need to stay competitive.
