Freescale ColdFire® Microcontroller Platform Provides the Backbone of New Initiatives to Enable VoIP Solutions in Healthcare, Building Automation and Industrial Control.

TORONTO, and BANGALORE, July 29, 2008 – Arcturus Networks Inc. and Encore Software Ltd today announced a strategic partnership that will help propel the adoption of embedded VoIP (Voice over IP) solutions in three key market segments; health care, building automation and industrial control. The effort has been focused around an existing Freescale ColdFire® microcontroller platform and has produced an expanded portfolio of software including Encore voice processing subsystem and Arcturus Middleware.

Arcturus and Encore have worked together since 2006 to deliver bundled solutions for VoIP. The two companies have leveraged this relationship, along with mutual partner Freescale Semiconductor to identify and execute on a joint technology road-map to deliver VoIP solutions for industrial and commercial applications. In 2007, the collaboration resulted in a flexible hardware and software package that gives manufacturers the ability to roll-out feature rich VoIP products without the prohibitive NRE costs or multi-vendor licensing agreements that make other solutions difficult to work with.
