Excelocity Inc., a leading Software Services company and a developer of turnkey embedded software solutions for telecom vendors, and Aricent®, a global innovation, technology and services company focused exclusively on communications, today announced that they have successfully completed the integration of Excelocity’s XL-Gateway a framework for building Voice/Video IP solutions, and Aricent’s Converged Access Software (CAS), a software framework for multi-service gateways for the Intel CAP24-60 Multi-Service Business Gateway reference HW platform.
“We are pleased to be launching this VoIP solution based on the XL-Gateway and the Intel CAP24-60 platform,” said Goutam Shaw president and founder of Excelocity Inc. “The universal nature of our XL-Gateway Frameworks, via its adaptor modules, allowed us to quickly adapt to Intel’s DSP and TDM interfaces while keeping XL-Gateway’s core engines unchanged. It is good to see XLG and CAS, the two complementary products, working together to enable multi-service gateway solutions for our customers.”
The Excelocity XL-Gateway Framework introduces a new class of an open (software development kit) SDK for the development of embedded Multimedia (Voice/Video) gateways. It significantly reduces the product development costs from multi-millions of dollars to hundreds of thousands and the time to market from years to months. The XL Gateway Framework presents a modular, highly scalable architecture with high level APIs for call, media, signaling and OAMP control. Its availability on the CAP24-60 reference platform, along with its integration with CAS, will offer an almost a turnkey solution to the equipment vendors. It has been pre-integrated with third party TDM and IP signaling protocol stacks and provides the multimedia path and call control for all combinations of FXS, FXO, ISDN, CAS and SIP calls over PSTN, LAN and WAN networks. The framework provides powerful APIs that remove the complexity of managing the underlying hardware resources and enables designers to easily build Next-Generation services and applications.
“We are very excited to be working with Intel and Excelocity to provide a complete Multiservice Business Gateway Solution for the CAP24-60 platform,” said C.P. Murali sr. vice president at Aricent. “Today’s equipment manufacturers face enormous complexities associated with developing, qualifying and deploying advanced Voice/Video IP solutions. The combination of the Aricent and Excelocity Software frameworks can dramatically enhance the capacity for networking vendors to deliver reliable, feature rich multi-service gateway products.”
Aricent‘s CAS solution is a comprehensive software package for equipment manufacturers that span several product categories such as Residential/Home Gateways, Business Service Routers and Multi-Services Business Gateways (MSBGs). CAS enables vendors to develop integrated modular devices on a single software platform.
Integrating technology components such as switching, security, voice services and WiFi from multiple vendors not only increases integration and maintenance costs, but also adds significant delays to new product introductions. Aricent Converged Access Solution is a comprehensive software package allowing equipment manufacturers to develop integrated modular devices on a single software platform.
Aricent Converged Access Solution enables vendors to rapidly develop new products in various form factors, while reducing integration and maintenance costs. Using the CAS software, equipment vendors can develop a single integrated device that is highly flexible and scalable to meet the requirements of new services and applications.
“The combination of the Excelocity’s XL-Gateway, Aricent’s CAS, and Intel’s CAP24-60 robust reference hardware platform, provides a strong development platform to developing scalable multi-service gateway solutions,” said Steve Price, performance products marketing director, Intel.
With Excelocity’s XL-Gateway, Aricent’s CAS, and Intel’s CAP24-60 robust reference hardware platform, equipment vendors have a clear starting point for developing their highly robust and scalable multi-service gateway solutions. The CAP24-60 reference platform with XLG and CAS demo software can be ordered from Excelocity and Aricent for evaluation purposes.
