The viability of host-based software in providing media processing capabilities continues to expand the possibilities for voice application development. Over time, we see majority of modern applications deployed on host vs. board-based systems. This trend is driven primarily by the relentless increase in processor speed and capabilities. Host-based media processing is also a natural fit for VoIP and/or mobile based applications, since these applications can now be delivered as software-only solutions.
