Digium® and I6NET Announce Partnership to offer VoiceXML browser technology into Asterisk


I6NET Solutions and Technologies is proud to announce today partnership with Digium Inc. the Asterisk® Company. We post here the press release published:

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., and Madrid (Spain), 2008 March 12 — Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, and I6NET Solutions and Technologies, Limited a pan European company specialized in the development of new applications and advanced communication solutions, announce today their partnership. I6NET’s VoiceXML browser and software technology enables the creation of interactive voice and video applications. This product is the first complete VoiceXML browser add-on for Asterisk. More information is available at www.i6net.com.

VXI* VoiceXML browser for Asterisk gives developers, operators, and service providers the ability to rapidly develop and deploy innovative VoiceXML-controlled voice and video applications in VoIP, PSTN, and 3G-324M networks. VXI* is fully compliant with W3C VoiceXML 2.0 and some 2.1 specifications, and can easily integrate automatic speech recognition (ASR) and text-to-speech (TTS) systems to enable advanced IVVR applications, voice and video communications, and real-time video calling applications. VXI* interpreter is pluggable into standard Digium Asterisk PBX releases including Asterisk Business Edition. The solution provides the important benefits of scalability and a low cost solution profile. Most users of Asterisk can run VoiceXML in the same server.

Digium is the creator and driving force behind Asterisk®, the open source voice communications software deployed by more than 3.5 million servers worldwide to manage VoIP calls for businesses and individuals. More resellers, telecom professionals and software developers choose Digium’s products than those of any other open source telephony company because only Digium delivers the technical superiority, security and flexibility associated with Asterisk. Asterisk powers Digium’s family of software and hardware appliances including AsteriskNOW™, Asterisk Business Edition™ and Switchvox™.

“Choosing the Asterisk telephony platform is the most important decision we have taken for deploying our VoiceXML browser”, said Ivan Sixto, CEO at I6NET. “Asterisk is a strong system on which developer’s ecosystem can easily build advanced multimedia services with VXI*. Running web-enabled Interactive Voice and Video Response (IVVR) applications is now possible on the Asterisk platform.”

“Asterisk is designed from the ground up to provide a flexible platform for developing value-added applications,” said Jim Webster, director of technology partnerships at Digium. “The work I6NET has done provides a new option with powerful potential for speech solution providers. VXI* is a good example of business-focused innovation from the worldwide Asterisk ecosystem.”
