Unicoi Systems' VoIP Solutions Integrated with Raven Electronics' M4x platform

April 04, 2012

Unicoi Systems, a provider of VoIP solutions for the embedded device market, is now powering Raven Electronics’ M4x platform.

The company has begun to leverage Unicoi’s InstaVoIP Module’s software and hardware to expand its capabilities and address the growing demands from telecommunications customers.

Based in Nevada, Raven designs and manufactures digital signal processing-based communications systems. Raven's main product lines are digital and analog engineered, state-of-the-art communications systems.

Raven’s M4x (“multi-market, mixed-media, next generation”) technology allows for the quick design and deployment of robust communications solutions. The advantage of this technology is its capacity to mix different media types within a single communication system.

M4x hardware and software tools eliminate the need for multiple products from multiple vendors. By incorporating InstaVoIP Module from Unicoi Systems, Raven was able to further expand the scope of M4x to include VoIP.

“We are excited that Raven Electronics has entrusted Unicoi with the task of providing for their VoIP needs. InstaVoIP Module was created for products such as the M4x series, and we are happy to see clients taking advantage of it,” said Scott Simmons, VP of Sales and Marketing at Unicoi Systems, in a statement.

InstaVoIP Module’s software is a cross-platform solution featuring Fusion TCP/IP stack, Fusion HTTP Server and a FAT32 file system, as well as hardware drivers and a user-customizable Web-based configuration application, all running on the lightweight Fusion RTOS. The hardware of the VoIP solution features Analog Devices’ (News - Alert) Blackfin DSP and includes an Ethernet connection, 4 MB of Flash, 16MB of SDRAM, and a 96 kHz-capable stereo audio codec.

The InstaVoIP Module enables five-way conference calls using the G.729 codec and still has enough free processing power to run various user applications.
