Intel plans to boost its efforts in computer telephony with investments in companies that use the technology.
The move is part of Intel’s strategy to diversify beyond its core semiconductor business.
Intel’s computer telephony unit, Dialogic, specializes in integrating PC technology with phone systems, for such applications as voice mail, voice recognition, and banking by telephone.
To attract developers to the Dialogic platform, the company is offering a free trial software development kit. Participating developers also may be eligible for investments through Intel’s $200 million Communications Fund.
