Tempe, Ariz.Motorola, Inc. has stepped into the voice-over-IP (VoIP) arena with the introduction of its VoIP open application-enabling platforms. The platforms consist of VoIP call control software called FACT-SIP running on the company's ComStruct family of CompactPCI packet voice-processing “resource” boards. The platforms are said to let you focus on adding “application-specific value,” thereby cutting the time, cost, and risk of deployment.
The FACT-SIP software, which integrates the SIP open-standard protocol with such recources as codecs, tones, and carrier-class echo cancellation, and touts a simple Web-based management interface, sends Session Internet Protocol (SIP) commands from an application across an IP socket. By paving the interface between the board and SIP-based applications and devices, the platforms smooth the path to creating VoIP-enabled applications like IP-PBXs and VoIP access gateways.
The ComStruct family of packet voice resource boards includes the PVRB384, PVRB672, and CPCI-8220, which carry 384, 672, and 2016 voice channels respectively. Designed for VoIP media gateway and line card applications, the boards feature a rich array of in-shelf or external I/O ports that includes Gigabit Ethernet; OC-3 ATM, DS3, or DS1 terminations; and H.110 fabric implementations.
FACT-SIP is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2006. Prices for a full platform, including SIP run-time licenses range from $11 to $30 per port, depending on volume and the level of indemnification provided.
