Speech Processing for IP Networks: Media Resource Control Protocol

TITLE : Speech Processing for IP Networks: Media Resource Control Protocol (MRCP) (Hardcover)
AUTHOR : by David Burke (Author)
PUBLISHER : Wiley publisher
ISBN : 0470028343
PUB DATE : April 27, 2007
LANGUAGE : English
SIZE : 02 x 1.44 MB

[ R e l e a s e N o t e s ]

Media Resource Control Protocol (MRCP) is a new IETF protocol, providing
a key enabling technology that eases the integration of speech
technologies into network equipment and accelerates their adoption
resulting in exciting and compelling interactive services to be
delivered over the telephone. MRCP leverages IP telephony and Web
technologies such as SIP, HTTP, and XML (Extensible Markup Language) to
deliver an open standard, vendor-independent, and versatile interface to
speech engines. Speech Processing for IP Networks brings these
technologies together into a single volume, giving the reader a solid
technical understanding of the principles of MRCP, how it leverages
other protocols and specifications for its operation, and how it is
applied in modern IP-based telecommunication networks. Focusing on the
MRCPv2 standard developed by the IETF SpeechSC Working Group, this book
will also provide an overview of its precursor, MRCPv1. Speech
Processing for IP Networks:

- Gives a complete background on the technologies required by MRCP to
function, including SIP (Session Initiation Protocol), RTP (Real-time
Transport Protocol), and HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol).
- Covers relevant W3C data representation formats including Speech
Synthesis Markup Language (SSML), Speech Recognition Grammar
Specification (SRGS), Semantic Interpretation for Speech Recognition
(SISR), and Pronunciation Lexicon Specification (PLS).
- Describes VoiceXML - the leading approach for programming
cutting-edge speech applications and a key driver to the development of
many of MRCP's features.
- Explains advanced topics such as VoiceXML and MRCP interworking.
This text will be an invaluable resource for technical managers, product
managers, software developers, and technical marketing professionals
working for network equipment manufacturers, speech engine vendors, and
network operators. Advanced students on computer science and engineering
courses will also find this to be a useful guide.

How to plan your future strategy for efficient, cost-saving data
management Businesses have historically treated data protection as an
afterthought, as simply making an occasional copy of data that could be
used in the future. Today, this attitude is changing rapidly. The
ever-increasing amount of data, along with the emphasis on continuous
availability, necessitates changes in the approach to data integrity,
which results in management and protection becoming much more closely
aligned. Digital Data Integrity throws light on the data integrity
landscape of the future. It provides the reader with a brief overview of
the historical methods and subsequent evolution of data protection. The
text shows how the whole subject of data integrity is changing and
describes and positions many of the new, enhanced, more intelligent
protection technologies and methods. Digital Data Integrity:

- Takes a unique, forward look at data protection and management,
highlighting the paradigm shift from simple backup and recovery to total
data management.
- Details recent developments in compliance regulations in an
accessible manner.
- Covers enhanced protection technologies such as advanced intelligent
synthetic backups, data reduction methods, and data growth - online
protection using continuous data protection.
- Explains data life cycle management and data storage, using
management, quality of service products and tools to achieve better data
management, intelligent allocation of storage, and compliance with
- Contains information on quality control, looking at SLA (Service
Level Agreements), protection by business unit and billing/charge back.
- Unique insight into hot topics such as next generation bare metal
recovery and true system provisioning. This invaluable text will provide
system administrators, and database administrators, as well as senior IT
managers and decision makers with a thorough understanding of data
management and protection. With contributions from Ray Schafer and Paul
