Historically, AudioCodes has provided and continues to supply wireless over IP media gateway solutions to enable the use of IP-BSC/BTSs within legacy GSM/CDMA radio networks. With the commercial introduction of UMA (Unlicensed Mobile Access), also known as Generic Access Network (GAN), GSM mobile operators are able to provide service to users over WiFi as well as GSM radio networks with the use of WiFi/Cellular handsets. As UMA continues to gain popularity among GSM operators as a means of providing service to users over WiFi, AudioCodes is well positioned with a comprehensive set of media gateways and security gateways for any UMA compliant network.
The addition of VoIP enhancements to the EVRC vocoders and the introduction of the new EVRC-B vocoders, enable CDMA service providers to supply voice and data services to their users via a common radio.
FMC’s convergence of wireless, wireline, cable and enterprise demand a highly flexible, robust media gateway in order to handle the multiple vocoders, signaling and control standards to accommodate the different network access and interworking requirements. AudioCodes’ support for UMTS, GSM, CDMA, Cable and VoIP vocoders, along with our high voice quality and signaling support provide for a robust Media Gateway platform ideally suited for an FMC application.
