3/10/2004 - NMS Communications (Nasdaq: NMSS), trusted supplier of communications products and services, announced the release of the AG 4040 Series, part of the Open AccessTM framework for next-generation voice, video and data services (www.nmscommunications.com/OpenAccess). The AG 4040 offers application developers and OEMs and their telecom operator and enterprise customers a new level of flexibility while reducing total lifecycle costs. The AG 4040 delivers increased processing power, more efficient power management, and software-selectable T1/E1 network interfaces. The AG 4040 is available in either PCI or CompactPCI form factors, and satisfies both rich media processing and digital PSTN interface needs for a wide range of voice and signaling applications.
The AG 4040 Series (data sheet, PDF format) is part of the Open Access family of analog and digital hardware for use in the development of systems that require call and media processing, fax, switching, and the integration of telephone systems and computer or database systems. With software-configurable T1 or E1 trunk assignments and field-selectable impedance, the AG 4040 eliminates the need to stock separate boards for separate configurations and helps reduce total cost of ownership. The AG 4040 also offers "drop-in" replacement for AG 4000 boards, but draws under 25 watts of power even at maximum DSP configuration to better manage power consumption and heat dissipation. The AG 4040 is the ideal platform for conferencing and speech recognition applications.
EPOS, a technology provider of speech-enabled 24/7 self-service for telephone, Internet, wireless technology and kiosk, is one of the first customers to employ the AG 4040. "EPOS chose NMS Communications' AG 4040 for its scalability, worldwide protocol support, and extensibility," said Fred Byrd, CTO and Executive Vice President, EPOS. "Because the AG 4040 enables the selection of telephony trunks via software, we have seen tremendous cost and inventory savings. And we can be sure that we continue to get the best-in-class voice and call processing for the cost-effective deployment of our IVR solution."
Another user of the AG 4040 is Collabo Technology K.K., developer of CollaboBaseTM, the only integrated multi-stage collaboration tool in Japan enabling communication and collaboration among companies in any situation. Collabo CEO Tetsunosuke Fujisaki, "Conferencing is at the core of collaboration and with the Open Access AG 4040 we have a scalable and reliable engine for the CollaboBase product. With the enterprise market as our primary target, the AG 4040 gives us a clear advantage in terms of flexibility and price-performance."
