Lod, Israel – May 24, 2007 – AudioCodes (NASDAQ: AUDC), a leading provider of Voice over Packet (VoP) technologies and Voice Network products, today announced the release of its VoIPerfect™ solution for WiMAX CPE applications, adapted for Intel® WiMAX Connection 2250 (previously codenamed “Rosedale 2”) chipset.
AudioCodes provides a complete and ready to use toolkit including a hardware reference design for a VoIP Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) and a Linux-based SIP VoIP application, fully integrated and tested with the Intel® WiMAX Connection 2250. The VoIPerfect™ architecture, which has been deployed for over 12 years, includes a DSP firmware, media processing VoicePacketizer™ stack, SIP stack and call control layer for a complete SIP VoIP application. Additionally, an infrastructure is provided to allow the configuration and management of the stand-alone SIP VoIP application from the user’s main application.
“With the growing number of WiMAX installations globally, service providers will want to enable their customers with voice as well as data,” stated Shaul Weissman, Vice President, VoIP Processors, at AudioCodes. “Using our integrated VoIPerfect™ solution allows OEMs and ODMs to rapidly provide a VoIP enabled WiMAX CPE for such applications.”
The VoIPerfect™ solution provides a variety of vocoders such as G.711, G.726, G.729, G.723.1, iLBC and more, as well as wideband vocoders for HD voice quality. Echo cancellation, T.38 Fax relay, conferencing and flexible telephony signals detection and generation complement the Carrier Class VoIPerfect™ solution. Special emphasis was given to highly cost effective BOM design that enables a competitive WiMAX CPE design for both indoor and outdoor installations.
“The combination of our WiMAX Connection 2250 low-cost system-on-chip with AudioCodes complete VoIP solution provides our customers with a market-ready solution for WiMAX CPE,” says Aicha Evans, Director of Engineering for Intel’s CPE product group. “We are enabling our customers to shorten their time to market using our WiMAX baseband chip and AudioCodes field-proven VoIP solution.”
The solution also includes provisioning for Real Time Polling Service (RTPS) allowing dynamic allocation of bandwidth, which provides the Quality of Service (QoS) required for VoIP calls while optimizing the usage of the required bandwidth.
