BW: Vovida Networks Continues to Drive Open Source Telephony... with Free VoIP Protocol Stacks...

Feb 29, 2000, 20:31 (0 Talkback[s])

" 'We believe that the most effective way to promote the aggregate growth of the Voice over IP industry is to provide all of the core foundation protocols royalty and license free to both developers and companies alike,' stated Alan Knitowski, President, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Vovida Networks(TM). With this philosophy firmly in place, open source implementations of MGCP, RTP, SIP and H.323 Annex-F stacks have all been introduced and are freely downloadable from the Vovida Networks website."

" 'Global response to our free product offering has been staggering. So far, there have already been more than 11,500 downloads of the protocols since they were first made available eight months ago," Knitowski continued. 'Additionally, both developers and companies have actively contributed to enhancing the software through porting, interoperability testing and new code submissions for added usability and functionality across a number of operating systems and hardware platforms.' "

"Vovida Networks provides continuing enhancements to the MGCP, RTP, SIP and H.323 Annex-F stacks on a regular basis. While originally developed on Linux(TM), the stacks are easily portable to Windows(TM), Solaris(TM), IRIX(TM) and other UNIX-like operating systems, with current versions of Vovida's MGCP and RTP stacks compilable on both Linux(TM) and VxWorks(TM)."
