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


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: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
