Moto Opens Up VoIP

Motorola Inc. Tuesday announced its first voice-over-Internet-protocol open-application-enabling platforms.

The vendor said the combination of its “FACT-SIP” software and its “ComStruct CompactPCI” packet-voice-resource boards will allow packet-voice-resource hardware to be controlled by sending Session Initiation Protocol commands across an IP socket from an application, making it easy to interface existing SIP-based applications and devices directly to ComStruct hardware to create VoIP-enabled applications such as IP-PBX (private branch exchange) and VoIP-access gateways.

Motorola added that it intends to create new VoIP open-application-enabling platform families that integrate FACT-SIP software with “MicroTCA” and “AdvancedTCA” hardware.

“Our strategy is to integrate packet-voice-resource boards with SIP software, creating tested VoIP platforms that make it easy to voice-enable SIP applications, without the need to generate low-level code or directly control hardware,” Motorola media-products-marketing manager, embedded communications computing Nigel Forrester said in a prepared statement.

“Motorola's open-application-enabling-platform approach can help telecom-equipment manufacturers to speed up VoIP-product development while helping to reduce risk in the development process,” he added.
