LumenVox is excited to announce the release of LumenVox Version 18.0.400 of the LumenVox Speech Solutions. These new and enhanced features focus on security and flexibility so that companies of all shapes and sizes can directly address business needs in today’s changing world.
Support for additional connections, testing and enhanced security with encrypted audio packet transmission
With this version, we have added Media Server support for MRCPv2 over the TLS protocol. Transport layer security (TLS) provides communication security between client/server applications, enabling privacy, integrity, and protection for the data that’s transmitted. Our Simple MRCP Client has been updated to allow testing of TLS features. This version also includes support for secure SIP (SIPS) connections and encrypted audio packet transmission over the SRTP protocol. The Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) provides encryption, message authentication, and integrity, and replay attack protection to the RTP data.
Additional Short Utterance Transcription Language Support
We have added support to load alternate language models when using short utterance transcription. This provides greater convenience and ease as it removes the need for a costly or complex statistical language model, and it increases accuracy.
Up to date operating system support for optimal security, performance, development and streamlined installation
We have added support for Windows Server 2019 Operating Systems, and deprecated support for Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7. The Windows Product Installer has been streamlined to allow easier product installation and Windows development has been migrated to Visual Studio 2017 for optimal coding algorithms.
Added flexibility regarding MRCP properties
All Media Resource Control Protocol (MRCP) headers can now be overwritten as a Vendor-specific-parameter. If a header appears in both the header and the Vendor-specific-parameter header, the one in the Vendor-specific-parameter will override the other setting. This is to allow customer the ability to change MRCP properties that a given platform may not allow.
Extended dashboard diagnostic capabilities
The dashboard diagnostic capabilities were extended for TLS protocol functionality/testing and enhanced with the ability to back up and restore configuration settings from the diagnostic page of the dashboard.
These enhancements have been driven by partner feedback and requests. They showcase LumenVox’ continued commitment to making speech applications more secure and easier to incorporate into everyday business.
