Cantata Makes its Debut -- Excel + Brooktrout

Cantata Technology, a company formed through the merger of Excel Switching and Brooktrout Technology in October 2005, made its official debut.

Cantata Technology, which is headquartered in Needham, Massachusetts, supplies media servers, media gateways and voice and fax platforms for the enterprise and service provider markets.

"Our new name, Cantata, is a word derived from a rich musical composition in which talents converge to create something truly unique. A cantata is a work far more innovative, integrated and engaging than the sum of its parts. This same synergy is embodied in Cantata Technology," said Marc Zionts, CEO of Cantata Technology.

The company also introduced a new version of its Cantata SnowShore IP Media Server optimized for 3G wireless and IMS applications. The platform provides the Media Resource Function (MRF), a key building block for advanced multimedia and interactive services within the emerging IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network architecture.

The SnowShore IP Media Server is a software based SIP controlled media processing platform featuring advanced speech and multimedia processing capabilities to support new blended IMS voice and video applications.
