SmartWORKS™ IPX streamlines application migration from different IP- PBX platforms with packet filtering and a wide-range of protocol support
Lod, Israel – June 6, 2006 – AudioCodes, a leading provider of Voice over Packet (VOP) technologies and voice network products, announced the release of SmartWORKS™ IPX, its new IP-PBX packet filtering product for the call recording market. The IPX is the first product introduced from a new IP-focused family of call recording products. Subsequent products from this family will include a combination of technologies from AudioCodes and Ai-Logix, a leading manufacturer of voice recording hardware who was acquired by AudioCodes.
SmartWORKS™ IPX passively monitors and collects voice packets in the IP-PBX environment and reports D-channel data to the customer’s application through the SmartWORKS™ API. The IPX is the first hardware of its kind that detects and forward media RTP to another network device where it can be recorded. While the SmartWORKS™ IPX release initially supports Cisco and Avaya IP-PBX systems; an aggressive integration schedule has been outlined to support other industry-leading IP-PBX brands by the end of 2006.
“The IPX builds on our SmartWORKS™ NGX product providing the same call event capturing capabilities”, says Andrew DuMont, VP of Engineering, Blade Business Line, AudioCodes. “This enables our customers to quickly migrate their SmartWORKS™ NGX applications to VoIP environments.”
“The IPX provides our customers with the ability to build IP-PBX call logging systems without relying on the PBX manufacturers’ tools,” says Scott Wooster, Product Manager for the Blade Business Line, AudioCodes. “This promotes application portability across PBX platforms.”
