10/9/2002 - Brooktrout Technology, a leading provider of innovative hardware and software platforms that enable applications for the New NetworkTM, announced that e-horizon Streaming Technologies, a leading provider of Next Generation Streaming Media solutions for Packet Switched data and telecommunication networks, has selected Brooktroutís TR2020TM platform for their VoiPZon Gateway. e-horizonís 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-horizonís 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 todayís 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.

Brooktroutís 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 TR2020ís VQmonTM 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 Brooktroutís excellent technical support," said Mats Lindberg, CEO of e-horizon Streaming Technologies. "The open architecture of Brooktroutís 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 TR2020ís broad selection of voice compression methods such as G.723.1 and GSM-FR makes it well suited for wireless and wireline applications.
