Brooktrout Technology’s Speech Recognition Platform Awarded Internet Telephony Product of the Year

1/9/2003 - Brooktrout Technology, a leading provider of innovative hardware and software platforms that enable applications for the New NetworkTM, announced that its TR1000TM, an open systems board-level platform for speech and enhanced services, was honored with a Product of the Year Award from Internet Telephony® magazine. With its vendor independent automatic speech recognition (ASR) and advanced text to speech support, Brooktrout’s TR1000 platform is optimized for carrier-grade speech solutions, such as speech-enabled unified communications, Internet voice messaging, personal agents (find me/follow me services), and automated operator services.

“Internet Telephony magazine initiated the Product of the Year award program to help our readers sort through the vast proliferation of new products and services in the marketplace. The companies selected to receive Internet Telephony Product of the Year Awards for 2002 have been instrumental in the continued growth of the IP telephony industry and we’re proud to reward their hard work and innovation. We are pleased to honor the Product of the Year winners today, as they lay the groundwork for the next generation of IP telephony solutions,” said Internet Telephony editorial director Greg Galitzine.

In 2002, Brooktrout Technology added vendor-independent ASR support to its TR1000 media resource platform. The TR1000 supports a wide range of operating systems, including the new high-performance, high-availability Solaris 8 and Linux kernels with multiprocessor support, which is especially important for carrier-grade deployment of demanding speech recognition applications. The TR1000 also supports text to speech systems, which are increasingly used in complementary applications to ASR. The TR1000 supports up to 96 channels of full-duplex operation on a single card, with echo cancellation and barge-in support on every channel. Systems can be configured to support up to 240 simultaneous full-featured ASR sessions, making the TR1000 ideal for carrier-grade speech applications.

We are honored that Internet Telephony recognized the importance of this innovative product and honored the TR1000 with the Product of the Year award,” said Keith Byerly, senior market development manager for Brooktrout’s speech technology platforms.
