|Tomorrow at 3pm I have a talk at the Java.net Community Corner. I will present JAIN SLEE and a demo of the first certified open source implementation - Mobicents. The demo will show a simple SIP PBX deployment scenario. I will run the server on my laptop, then register two phones with it and establish a voice call. Come see it if you are at J1.|
As I was checking on the Java.net booth today to prepare for the talk, I noticed two pods showcasing a slick looking box with the Java logo on it.
It turns out this is the new JBox - embedded Java box. It is a joint product of Sun, VIA and iGoLogic. Priced around $300 and fully capable of running Java Standard Edition 5, it is the new reference platform for embedded Java devices. This is the box that Ted Kosan, Embedded Community lead, has been excited about lately.
The light bulb suddenly came on. Instead of showing the demo on my laptop, why not set it up on JBox. That will be the First Java PBX appliance!. Just a prototype of course, but how far can a marketable product be? 3 months, 6 months max.
