Kagoor and dynamicsoft Team For SIP/VoIP Traffic Management System
Kagoor Networks announced it is planning to team with dynamicsoft to develop and offer VoIP traffic management solutions. The firms intend to develop the solutions based on the integration of Kagoor’s VoIP traffic management platform, VoiceFlow, and dynamicsoft’s array of SIP based solutions and technologies for real-time communications over IP-based networks. Kagoor’s VoiceFlow series include two applications, Traffic Engineering and Call Aggregation, with the Traffic Engineering proactively determining the optimal routes for voice traffic and redirecting voice packets according to QoS metrics, and the Call Aggregation system compressing voice packet headers and combining media streams and reducing bandwidth requirements by up to 80 percent. The solution combined with dynamicsoft’s SIP-enabled software infrastructure will enable users to increase the control and interoperability of SIP-based IP networks.

RadiSys Introduces VoIP Bridge Chip for Intel’s Network Processors
RadiSys has reported the introduction of the TDM2IX, a chip that can be used to bridge the TDM bus to the IX bus of the Intel IXP1200 Network Processor to develop voice packetization applications such as VoIP gateways. The chip is designed to facilitate applications such as high density VoIP packetizing and depacketizing that require an interface between TDM streams and an IXP1200 Network Processor. It features a 0.35 micron ASIC in a standard 240-pin PQFP package, with the 0.35 micron implementation minimizing the power requirements of the chip but still supporting operation at the full speed of the IX bus and the IXP Network Processor. It can also be combined with a standard TSI to provide access to any or all of the 4096 DS0s of the H.110 CompactPCI bus.

The product is currently available. Pricing begins at $59 in thousand-piece quantities.
