e-horizon Builds Next-Generation IP Gateway Using Brooktrout’s Award-Winning TR2020 Platform

09.10.2002


Brooktrout Technology, Inc., a leading provider of innovative hardware and software platforms that enable applications for the New Network(TM), today announced that e-horizon Streaming Technologies, a leading provider of Next Generation Streaming Media solutions for Packet Switched data and telecommunication networks, has selected Brooktrout’s TR2020(TM) platform for their VoiPZon Gateway



e-horizon’s VoiPZon system enables network operators and service providers to offer value-added VoIP telecom services including telco grade voice quality, mobile network integration, unified and instant messaging, and secure authentication.

e-horizon’s VoiPZon Gateway is designed to interoperate with multiple networks, connecting telephony networks, fixed and mobile, to the Internet or any type of data network. VoiPZon Gateway switches data, multimedia, fax and voice calls cost-effectively and with a quality that is on par with today’s circuit switched telecom networks. In order to ensure seamless integration into legacy environments, VoiPZon Gateway provides interface capability to all major telecom and data networks.


The VoiPZon Gateway is part of a suite of products that provide a versatile packet switched telecom system which includes all necessary building blocks that enable network operators to build a modern service oriented network based on IP. The VoiPZon suite supports both SIP and H.323 and all components are designed to be easily customized for the various services.

Brooktrout’s TR2020 performs core voice-over-IP functions for the VoiPZon Gateway. These VoIP functions include voice compression and IP packetization, as well as circuit network interface and signaling. The VoiPZon Gateway also takes advantage of the TR2020’s VQmon(tm) Quality of Service (QoS) feature, which allows the gateway to report user-perceived voice quality in real-time, for every call placed through the gateway.

"We chose the TR2020 platform because of its high level of performance, focus on QoS, and Brooktrout’s excellent technical support," said Mats Lindberg, CEO of e-horizon Streaming Technologies. "The open architecture of Brooktrout’s products is very important to us because it allows us to build our gateway elements very quickly, and focus our efforts on developing value-added service capabilities."

The TR2020 enables developers to create media gateways for a variety of network environments including packet-based wireless local loops, voice over cable, and IP PBX/Centrex, as well as IP-enabled enhanced services platforms for conferencing, messaging, and network announcements, among others. The TR2020’s broad selection of voice compression methods such as G.723.1 and GSM-FR makes it well suited for wireless and wireline applications.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
