Since 1990 ILLICO has been a leading supplier of DSP software components for the
telecom industry. These components have allowed our clients to take advantage of the low system cost and flexibility
afforded by multi-channel DSP designs. The wide selection of software set-up and run-time options has permitted
ease of installation of ILLICO products on the hardware platforms of over twenty-five client companies. The following
companies have selected ILLICO software: Ericsson, NEC, Alcatel, Toyota, Intel, Brooktrout Technology, and Dassault.
ILLICO software modems have supported a variety of products including FAX/data
relay, store-and-forward servers, and multi-channel computer/telephony cards. All offered software was
created by ILLICO staff and can be customized for special client requirements.
Here are some more reasons why a broad range of telecom companies have selected
ILLICO modem products are qualified by side-by-side simultaneous testing against
Rockwell FAX modem cards. The test arrangement includes the T.A.S. Telephone Network Emulator (model 182) for simulation
of a full range of US and international line conditions. This test bed is available at ILLICO's offices for demonstrations
or for client acceptance testing of ILLICO products.
Two Genoa Technology FAX emulation stations are used to qualify ILLICO's FAX relay
product. Each station can emulate any of 60 commercial FAX machines and cards.
ILLICO anticipates that each client may have special requirements pertaining to
the calling interface, diagnostics, memory organization, etc. All ILLICO products were created by ILLICO staff
and can be customized for the client's needs.
Each ILLICO project is a significant collaboration with the client beginning with
the preparation of a Technical Attachment describing the features and performance of the project deliverables.
This is followed by pre-delivery testing, installation support and warranty.
ILLICO software product licenses are available with options for royalty-free arrangements
and delivery of source code.
