Included in the development for the BOPS architecture will be VOCAL?s support for all the common G-series and GSM vocoders, FAX over IP (T.37/T.38), RAS modem servers through V.90/V.92 and Point of Sale (POS) protocols. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but future announcements will be made pertaining to standard system-on-chip (SOC) products resulting from the alliance.
