Join the CT Revolution!

Computer telephony (CT) is one of the hottest, and most significant, interactive communications technology categories in the high-tech marketplace.

While CT technology is only now reaching the mainstream, it is already playing a very significant role in computer and telephone equipment purchase decisions. Everyone from Chief Technology Officers of Fortune 500 corporations to individuals setting up their home (or mobile) office are considering how to apply CT technology to their unique business and personal needs.

More than 100 years of frenetic innovation in the telephony world, and an even greater explosion of technology in the computer world, has made this integration a somewhat complicated undertaking. For over a decade, C pioneers and visionaries have been struggling to overcome these challenges. Considerable effort had to be expended in building a framework for no-compromise CT solutions that would allow for CT Plug & Play operation.

Three key factors now mark the maturation of CT technology:

  1. Interoperability, through standard CT Plug & Play protocols
  2. Power, though easy-to-use software tools
  3. Access, through low-cost multimedia communications hardware

Now is the time for you to begin taking advantage of CT technology...


CT opportunities and applications are limited only by your imagination. A wide variety of CT solution categories have emerged in the marketplace.


Computer telephony involves applying computing technology to expose the full power of telephone systems that range in size from individual cellular phones to the switching equipment of the worldwide telephone network:

  • CT encompasses CTI, Media Processing, VoIP, and CT administration technology
  • CT Plug & Play technology allows CT solutions and systems to be built using off-the-shelf products from different vendors.
