Artisoft and AudioCodes integrate solutions. (Strategic Alliances).
Artisoft, Inc., developer of software-based phone systems, and
AudioCodes Ltd., a provider of voice over packet (VoP) technologies and
systems, have announced a joint voice-over-IP (VoIP) solution designed
to provide an economical way to manage voice communications across
multiple sites. Artisoft's TeleVantage 5.0 can use AudioCodes'
MediaPack Media Gateway to enable branch offices and remote staff to be
connected to the corporate TeleVantage server. The relationship, formed
under Artisoft's Open Communication Alliance, is expected to
empower both companies to promote the solution to their respective
channels. With MediaPack, remote TeleVantage users function as local
users, with simple extension dialing, caller I.D. data and access to the
features of the phone system, including the ability to graphically
manage live calls and voice mail. By sharing one common TeleVanrage
server, these organizations are better enabled to reduce equipment and
administration costs and save on long-distance charges between locat
ions. The companies have successfully completed inreroperability testing
and field trials of the integrated products.
