Are you ready for another new acronym? Here is one for you: HMP. It stands for Host Media Processing. Well, that’s about as clear as mud. Pay attention though because this new technology can really save you a lot of time and money. Ahh….I thought that would get your attention. You see, it’s all about where and how the dialing and call processing are done.
Dialing technology (computer telephony integration) takes a whole lot of processing power—for dialing the phone numbers, call progress with answer detection, and telephone and speech processing, etc. Historically computer processors didn’t have nearly enough processing power to get the job done, so dialing vendors would place “dialing boards” with special microprocessors called DSPs (digital signal processing) inside of computers. These dialing boards have lots of processing power and often best online casino telephone trunk connections to communicate with the telephone network. Since dialer processing happens on these separate daughter boards everything can be done very quickly and efficiently.
HMP is the new kid on the dialer block. Because today’s computer processors have a much higher, faster capacity, the separate dialing boards are no longer needed. Host Media Processing is software based processing; the DSP type processing is done through the vendor’s software. There may need to be a telephone network interface card, but if you’re using internet protocol to connect to the telephone network, you can just use the computer’s NIC (network interface card).
So why is HMP beneficial to you?
