What Does Telephony Server Application Programming Interface (TSAPI) Mean?
Telephony server application programming interface (TSAPI) is a computer telephony integration standard that enables telephony and computer telephony integration (CTI) application programming.
The foundation of TSAPI is the European Computer Manufacturers Association’s (ECMA) standard CTI definition of computer-supported telecommunications applications (CSTA).
TSAPI is built with multiple Netware server control commands for call logging, call switching and voice mail. Although similar to the Microsoft/Intel telephony API (TAPI), TSAPI does not require call switching.
Novell and AT&T developed TSAPI to enable third-party control of CTI applications connected to local area networks (LANs). TSAPI is used by telephone system and LAN server data links for multiple phone and computer application controls.
