The Dialogic® Diva® Media Boards and the Diva® Software Products provide a future proof and extremely flexible platform for the implementation of communication solutions.
The main design goal of all Diva products has been to provide “ease of use” and “re-usability of code” for use in many different environments. This reduces the TCO (total cost of ownership) for both the application developer as well as for the customer.
The Diva platform consists of two general parts:
1) The “Diva Media Boards” offering Analog, ISDN PRI/BRI, E1/T1 and IP connectivity
2) The “Diva Software” which is divided into Driver SW, Diva® SDK and Diva IP Gateway SW
The recommended way to select a suited Diva products is to first select the required connectivity (line type), then the required functionality (e.g. echo cancellation or V.90 modem support) and then to select the API.
The Diva platform offers many standard APIs (COM port, TAPI, CAPI, TTY, WAN Mini Port) so it will work out of the box with most of the existing communication applications. (Note: TAPI support is provided "as is" within the current implementation with no plans for updates in the future)
For projects where none of the standard APIs are suited the Diva SDK offers three Diva APIs that allow using different programming paradigms (languages and environments). This stretches from C or C# to .NET or VB.Script. In order to allow for an easy start the freely downloadable Diva SDK offers more than 70 “ready to use and run” samples which are often used as boiler plates for the different applications.
There is hardly any limit to the type of application that can be implemented based on the Diva platform. Typical applications that have been implemented on the Diva platform are: Unified Messaging (including fax), Unified Communications, IVR (DTMF), IVR (speech-enabled), contact center, conferencing server (including high quality conferences up to 360 active speakers), Asterisk® based systems, basic voice and CTI, call recording/tapping (call monitoring, HiZ, high impedance), network and protocol test equipment, M2M (machine to machine) communication, Point of Sales (POS), remote meter reading, Remote Access (RAS), SMS Gateways, VoIP/FoIP Gateways, and other telephony applications
The Diva platform is supported under Windows and Linux operating systems. The software is available for free download. The Diva Hardware is available in PCI and PCI Express. Depending on the port density the Diva boards come in Low Profile (LP), Half Size/Half Length (HS/HL) and Full Size (FS) form factors. Diva based solutions scale from 2 to 960 lines per server.
Below you find the products that create the Diva platform organized in the following groups: Analog Boards, ISDN BRI Boards, single E1/T1/PRI boards, multi-span E1/T1/PRI boards, virtual IP media boards (software), Diva software (Driver, SDK, IP GW, SS7) and Diva Client (ISDN modems)
Whatever communications application you have in mind, Diva is the most flexible, scalable open platform you could want.
