Voxox improves VoIP audio quality with new codec
A new codec aimed at mobile operators and service providers could improve the audio quality of VoIP communications in the future.
Unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, the new VoIP code is now available as part of the Voxox platform as a service offering. Where this could improve VoIP communications, in particular, is in locations with spotty bandwidth. As the company noted in its press release, poor bandwidth can result in lost VoIP packets or even dropped calls. (It's a problem I'm all too aware of.)
Voxox claims its new codec (patent pending) improves call quality over codecs used by the likes of Skype, We Chat and Line. Voxox noted it can maintain consistently high quality of VoIP calls even with 40 percent packet loss. Impressive if it really works as advertised.
"Our new innovative codec is just one element of our Platform as a Service infrastructure, which is designed to help partners build best of breed unified communication experiences," said Bryan Hertz, CEO and co-founder of Voxox, in a statement.
Where this could fit into enterprise deployments is with those providing unified communications services to public areas like hotels, convention centers and airports.
