NET Quintum Intros Quintum Tenor DXi Card for Unified Communications

By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor

NET Quintum (News - Alert) (NET), an innovator in VoIP technologies, has announced today the Quintum Tenor DXi card with a Converged Application Platform.

This platform is based on the Intel Celeron M Processor (News - Alert) 370 operating at 1.5 GHz.

With the Converged Application Platform, application developers and Independent Software Vendors (ISV) can offer a variety of applications, including Unified Communications (News - Alert), and IP PBXs on a single application platform. In addition, Linux or Windows-based applications with an integrated VoIP capability can be run on the platform.
The Tenor DXi operates independently of the application processor, thereby allowing all of the processor resources to be dedicated to the application. Taking such an approach helps to improve both efficiency and reliability, which are key indicators when making a platform selection.

The Tenor DXi Integrated VoIP Gateway (News - Alert) supports up to 2 T1/E1/PRI spans and up to 60 simultaneous VoIP calls. The solution is built to be a full length PCI Express x1 Adapter Card and integrates all of the features and functions of the rest of the digital Tenor product line of VoIP switches and gateways to extend the value delivered in the solution.

"As more companies are focused on developing communications-based software applications, they are looking for powerful, yet cost-effective platforms to deliver their solutions," said Chuck Rutledge (News - Alert), vice president of Marketing for NET, in a Wednesday statement.
As the demand for VoIP and Unified Communications continues to grow in the enterprise space, companies are looking for solutions that are powerful enough to handle the load while also delivering quality. NET Quintum is focused on both in delivering solutions, helping to drive its presence in the global market.
"The combination of the Converged Application Platform and the Tenor DXi VoIP card provides a powerful convergence appliance," said Rutledge.
Bill Tiso, director and principal engineer for Market Development, Embedded and Communications Group, Intel Corporation, noted that Intel's Celeron-based platform enables third-party application development, integration and delivery. 

"When combined with the Intel Celeron M processor, gateway solutions -- such as Quintum's Tenor DXi VoIP Gateway Card -- address SMB and distributed enterprise requirements for a number of simultaneous VoIP calls," said Tiso.

NET has provided voice and data communications equipment for multi-service networks requiring high degrees of versatility, interoperability, security and performance for 25 years. The company’s broad family of products are purpose-built for mixed-service, multi-protocol networks, bandwidth-sensitive site communications, high-performance, security sensitive transmissions and converged communications.
