Founded in the Silicon Valley
in January 1999, Avinta Communications Inc. is a systems engineering company
that designs technology to be incorporated into control chips and chipsets
for use in networking telephones and computers in small offices and residences.
Avinta invents, designs,
and markets licenses for integrated circuit based technologies that enhance
voice and data networking products. Contrary to products developed by the
Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) approach, AvintaNET products are uniquely
focused on implementing the network intelligence into Plain Old Telephone
Sets (POTS), based on Telephony Computer Integration (TCI) technology.
The resulting PETS (Plain Enhanced Telephone Set) becomes the focal point
of network access.
Avinta's basic technology
provides distributed Private Automatic Branch eXchange (dPABX) features
for use with current and new telephone equipment. AvintaNET voice network
features include intercom, transfer, and conferencing among PETS. AvintaNET
technology is based on a peer-to-peer architecture that is plug-and-play
via phone jacks and wiring already installed in homes and offices.
Avinta has US Patents in
the field of distributed PABX architecture for voice networking and Patents
Pending in the field of integration of voice with data networking. These
foundation Patents have allowed Avinta's technology to evolve and enable
networking of multiple phones and computers using existing phone wiring.
Data networking and voice networking occur simultaneously on the same medium,
allowing computer devices to transfer data for collaboration, while telephone
extension users converse.
AvintaNET technology enhances
the consumer use of broadband services (DSL, Cable, Wireless, Optical,
etc.). The evolution of Avinta's technology will create interfaces that
enhance the use of Voice over DSL (VoDSL), Voice over IP (VoIP), Multi-Media
services, Security systems and Home Automation applications. AvintaNET
uses the merged dPABX and Home Phoneline Networking Alliance (HomePNA)
technology, centered in the telephone set, as an example of the many LAN
technologies (PowerLine, Infrared, Wireless, etc.) that can be similarly

world headquarters is located in Sunnyvale CA, with branch sales and manufacturing
operations in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Avinta Communications Inc. is a closely
