Six hardware and software companies have signaled their support for Sun
Microsystems' Java Technology Toolkit, or JavaTel, a cross-platform product
designed to link any telephone, appliance or networked computer to any
Java-based application.  IBM, Intel, Lucent Technologies, Nortel and Novell
have said they'll support the standard, and more companies are reportedly
ready to join the pack, according to Sun's director of market strategies and
technologies.  JavaTel will offer software developers and device
manufacturers a uniform interface for driving basic telephony functions,
such as call setup, disconnect, hold and call transfer.  A series of JavaTel
Extension Packages will deliver interfaces such as advanced call control,
media services, terminal management, call center management and mobile
services.  (Interactive Age Digital 4 Oct 96)
