Vision to Bring Software to Life

Developing software systems using Aculab media processing resources is Veeda Software's great strength. We have the experience, skills, and specialized knowledge that are needed to develop applications for Aculab's Prosody X and Prosody S platforms.

Prosody X vs. Prosody S

Aculab's Prosody X is a DSP hardware-based media processing solution. Among many other great features, it includes the option to have TDM and IP in one single entity. Prosody S is an IP only, software based approach. The Aculab Prosody X and Prosody S products have won the prestigious Internet Telephony Product of the Year award in 2005 and 2006 respectively.

  Aculab Prosody X PCIe Which one is right for your needs?

There is no single answer to this question. There is, however, only one correct approach. Design your application to work with both. It is well worth the extra time to develop an application that will work with either. Better yet, design an application that works with both of them simultaneously. If your design addresses the small differences between both platforms, you can defer the choice until your application is ready and you are able to test the market.

The Aculab SDK

Anyone who has successfully used the Aculab SDK, like we have at Veeda Software, knows that it is a very powerful tool set. It gives the software engineer full access to the many features that make the Prosody X and Prosody S such great media processing solutions. However, harnessing the full power and potential of the Prosody X and Prosody S is no small task. This is where an experienced team can be very helpful.

  Why use the Aculab SDK?

Veeda Software is often asked the question: "Which is a better idea? Should we use the Aculab SDK or use a higher level tool set / wrapper?" The answer depends on the customer's specific needs. In general, if your goal is to build high-density telephony systems (200+ ports), it is a wise idea to develop directly on the Aculab SDK. You are able to control the Aculab hardware and software in the most efficient way, harnessing the full power of the platform. This has an even deeper meaning to your bottom-line. No additional per-port license costs!


The Aculab Prosody X and Prosody S can be used in a number of applications:

• Conferencing servers • Fax Broadcasting / Internet Fax
• Media and signaling gateways • Coding conversion units
• IP media servers • Call centers and Contact Centers
• VoIP Monitoring • IVR servers and voice portals
