When you install Speech Server, you can configure and manage several aspects of the system using administration tools. The following Speech Server components can be configured, managed, and monitored using the Speech Server Administrator console or Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) scripts:

  • Server running Speech Server ??? Computers running the Speech Server service.
  • Speech Server applications ??? Speech applications that manage and control interactions with callers.
  • SIP peers ??? Voice over IP (VoIP) devices and applications that transmit and receive audio data to and from Speech Server.
  • Telephony Interface Manager Connector (TIMC) ??? A service that enables calls coming from telephony boards managed by a Telephony Interface Manager (TIM) to communicate with Speech Server. From an administration perspective, TIMC is configured and managed as a special type of SIP peer.

Using the Speech Server Administrator console, you can view and modify many of the configuration settings associated with these components. You can also start, stop, and pause the Speech Server service.

There is also a complete WMI namespace provided for configuring and managing these components using WMI scripts. For more information, see Speech Server WMI Reference.
