Pronexus VBVoice Powers CenturiSoft Media Switch Using Host Media Processing Software from Intel: Centuri Media Switch Delivers Unified Voice and Fax Communications over IP

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 15, 2005) - Pronexus Inc., an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and speech solutions innovator who brought the power of .NET to the field, has been selected by CenturiSoft, a developer of unified communications systems, as the provider of choice for rapid application development tools to build IVR applications. Their latest product built with VBVoice™, the Centuri Media Switch, enables voice and fax communications over the Internet and Intranet.

Fax continues to be a critical business tool in markets such as banking and law. CenturiSoft has developed a custom SIP Fax over IP (FoIP) application using Intel NetStructure® Host Media Processing (HMP) Software and VBVoice to provide application-level call control. Their customer, Las Vegas based CommPartners, is poised to roll out their efax service nationwide, starting with eight ports and building to 24 ports within the year.

"CenturiSoft has been using VBVoice for four years now because it offers standards-based programming and cost advantages that proprietary IVR development tools can't match," reports John Pope, CenturiSoft President. "With the seamless interoperability of VBVoice and HMP from Intel, we are able to build robust IVR capabilities into the Centuri Media Switch quickly and easily."

Intel NetStructure® Host Media Processing Software supports the industry-standard H.323 and SIP protocols and allows customers to build flexible and cost-effective IP media servers for IVR, voice mail and conferencing. "The CentruriSoft Media Switch once again showcases the value of standards-based building blocks for IP solutions," said Tim Moynihan, director of product marketing, Modular Communications Platform Division, Intel. "By utilizing VBVoice for rapid application development using HMP software from Intel, CeturiSoft is able to quickly and easily develop scalable, customer-driven VoIP and FoIP solutions."

VBVoice is the first rapid application development tool for telephony and speech to blend high level GUI with sophisticated programming in a .NET environment. "From day one, we've worked closely to ensure that our products, including VBVoice, continuously evolve with Intel technology and remain compatible," declares Gary T. Hannah, CEO at Pronexus. "Together, VBVoice and HMP Software from Intel facilitate cost-effective, future-proof IVR application development such as CenturiSoft's Media Switch."
