In a pivotal move to adopt open platform convergent e-communication technology, Malaysian company Viztel Solutions Sdn.Bhd announced that it would be focusing on the critical factors of enabling communication channels for Internet e-commerce.
KUALA LUMPUR, 5 May 2000 -
Viztel has announced the adoption of the Dialogic-backed CT Media Technology. Dialogic, an Intel company, is the worldwide market leader in open platform computer telephony solutions.
Designed to support telecommunication applications, CT Media is an open software platform that designs standard-based telecommunication servers.
Through using CT Media, Viztel will be able to broaden its range of communication solutions and services to other application providers on a single platform. The current status quo of telecommunication technologies being proprietary and restricted to a closed set of applications from a single vendor will also be redefined.
Viztel's CEO, Lau Kin Wai, said, "By adopting CT Media openness, Viztel will be able to offer technologies to be integrated into other communication applications. For example, an ISP can easily download Viztel's e-communication solution and run it on standard PC platform with CT Media."
There has been a surge of interest of CT Media in the US and Europe with over 80 companies developing CT Media related products and technologies.
Viztel has placed itself in the enviable position of being within the top companies in the Asian Pacific to use CT Media and the first in Malaysia to deploy CT Media Technologies.
Viztwel also announced its regional plan to deploy their e-communication services and roaming networks on CT Media from Malaysia to Singapore within the next month. There is also a planned investment of RM25 million in the e-communication network over the next 12 months.
