"Computer I/O Corporation, a provider of communications servers, embedded software, and services, has announced the Easy I/O T1/E1 Streaming Server, a Linux-based high performance communications server specifically designed for data insertion, capture and analysis applications. The Easy I/O T1/E1 Streaming Server is targeted at companies in the fast growth quality assurance and telecom monitoring markets that are facilitating distributed data insertion and collection in Service Provider (SP) domains."

"The Linux-based T1/E1 Streaming Server functions as a communications probe enabling client applications to directly access T1/E1 DS0 channels from the LAN environment. Today's wide area network (WAN) data streams, such as T1/E1, are carrying an increasingly divergent set of voice, data and video streams, making it difficult for a single type of test equipment to support the complex and growing protocol requirements (VoIP, RTP, T.120, frame relay, SS7). The distributed client/server architecture of the T1/E1 Streaming Server enables separate VoIP and SS7 analysis packages to remotely and independently access the component streams in a single T1/E1 aggregate. In addition, the server can extend the reach of many existing LAN-based protocol analysis packages into the WAN-based network."

"The T1/E1 Streaming Server can also be used to replace T1/E1 interface cards in the embedded computing market. Since it provides LAN-based access to T1/E1 data streams, it enables software engineers to focus on application development rather than on hardware integration and embedded level troubleshooting. In addition, project managers can reduce costs and expedite schedules using this T1/E1 network appliance."
