PIKA Products

TDM Board Products

For more than two decades PIKA has been serving companies around the world that require enabling technologies to design and build sophisticated services for voice recording systems, voice services applications, PC-PBX systems, and fax-blasting systems. The Company’s TDM board products and software development kits are “designed in” to voice/fax-enable these telephony applications. The applications are then resold, either directly or indirectly, to the end user who is typically an enterprise (business-to-business).
These products consist of computer plug in voice cards and software that connect a computer system to both analog/digital TDM and IP-based networks to provide advanced voice services. These are used by applications developers to create a variety of communication systems.

Host Media Processing Software (HMP)

An essential all-software building block for creating high performance and reliable telephony/mobility solutions. Because of PIKA’s long history in the telephony industry, our HMP is hardened and widely accepted across the globe in TDM and SIP-based networks.
PIKA's latest HMP release, HMP X™ provides valuable options to developers seeking to build a solution capable of bridging mobile, VoIP and TDM networks together in both Narrow Band and Wide Band audio scenarios with virtually unlimited capacity due to virtualization and “cloud” support. With tens of thousands of ports deployed worldwide, PIKA’s HMP offers an easy to use and economical licensing mechanism. PIKA’s HMP includes two levels of its API: a very granular and flexible low-level API in C and a quick to market, high-level API that allows developers to quickly create their application on their platform of choice.

PIKA WARP™ Appliance Family

This product is GUI configurable, with options for connectivity to TDM networks (FXO, FXS, BRI, PRI), IP networks and mobility networks (GSM, UMTS, WIFI).
Channel or end-user ready versions of the product include WARP Plus™ for Broadcom networks, Warp ATA™ for push to talk radio networks and Warp Mobile PBX for connection to mobile networks.
