Build next-generation applications for today and tomorrow

The IPM-1610 is a complete VoIP media processing solution providing IP and PSTN interfaces as needed to build next-generation applications for both today’s and tomorrow’s networks. Moreover, by introducing a packet interface for voice streaming the blade AudioCodes enables a smooth evolution from legacy PCI bus architecture to distributed, scalable, packet-based architecture.

Deliver Feature-Rich Solutions
A broad selection of firmware-based media processing capabilities is available with the IPM-1610 including: message record/playback, conferencing, on-board announcements storage, voice coding, echo cancellation, fax processing and call progress tone detection. Each channel resource on the IPM-1610 is universal and can perform media processing functions while utilizing full flexibility in endpoints.

Comply with Industry Standards
The IPM-1610 blade complies with industry standard network control protocols including MGCP, MEGACO (H.248), SIP or AudioCodes’ proprietary TPNCP. These allow for the implementation of a distributed media server architecture that separates call-processing functions from media processing functions, resulting in better redundancy, scalability and higher system availability.

Protect Customer Investment
The IPM-1610 is based on the VoIPerfect™ architecture, AudioCodes’ underlying, best-of-breed, core media gateway technology for all of its products. The IPM-1610 supports AudioCodes’ API, which enables software download, provisioning and control. It was designed to maintain essential API backward compatibility in order to protect customers’ investment in the development of products based on former generations.

Enable Fast and Easy Integration
Enabling accelerated design cycles with high-density and reduced costs, the IPM-1610 is an ideal building block for scalable, reliable VoIP enabled media processing solutions. With the IPM-1610’s comprehensive feature set, customers can quickly design a wide range of solutions combining PSTN and VoIP networks.
