New Browsing Protocol ‘HSTP’ By IBM Lets Users To Talk To Web
International Business Machine (IBM) has developed a new internet browsing technology that permits users to speak to the web and create voice-enabled websites with the help of cellular phones.
IBM’s India development team developed the Telecom Web Browser with the help of a new internet protocol called Hyper Speech Transfer Protocol (HSTP) analogous to HTTP.
HSTP offers a mechanism to join telephony voice applications with one another. Moreover, the new protocol intends to provide a communication bridge between the web and voice.
It would permit voice-driven transactions that can span several cross-enterprise voice applications therefore offering up a flawless browsing experience to the telephone user.
Mr. Manish Gupta, IBM's associate director, India Research Laboratory, said, “People will talk to the web and the web will respond. The research technology is analogous to the Internet. Unlike personal computers it will work on mobile phones where people can simply create their voice sites.”
IBM claims to have received unique applications and features using the technology in some of the pilot projects started in Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat.
