CompactPCI and AdvancedTCA Magazine has published an article (pdf) I wrote about implementing interactive voice and video response (IVVR) systems in the AdvancedTCA architecture. Until recently, these two areas have been rather disconnected.
The AdvancedTCA market has started to take off — later than any of us expected back in 2001-2002, but it is finally happening. However, ATCA adoption has been led by large (frequently ponderous) equipment providers and by high capacity packet-centric applications, for example, the SGSN packet router in 2.5G & 3G mobile networks — not a lot of media applications like IVVR.
Meanwhile the IVVR market has exploded in Asia and Europe, where 3G video telephony has been deployed, and NMS Communications is emerging as the leading technology supplier to IVVR developers.
Recently, we've started to see interest in deploying IVVR on ATCA. We certainly want to foster this, as we've launched the first high capacity ATCA media product, our MG 7000A. :-)
