Students working on this project will participate in the development of the Pace VoiceXML lab facility. The lab will provide a gateway to develop voice applications, the interface for developing applications together with a template library, the capability to enable novices to use the code library to learn about and to build advanced applications, and will facilitate both novice and expert in deploying multi-platform applications. The laboratory hardware will consist of a Cisco router for Voice Over IP, the IBM Voice Server, a Local Area Network, PSTN, and possibly a Firewall for the Voice Server.
The architecture of the VoiceXML studio will permit the registration, development, and deployment of an application. The studio essentially enables the user to load his/her application URL which can be referenced by the IBM Voice Server. The URL is retrieved and loaded when the call is routed to the voice server.
