ITEXPO (News - Alert), Los Angeles – Following a wealth of IP communications- and technology-related news in the first 24 hours of ITEXPO West 2009, show sponsor AudioCodes this morning announced that it’s joining a Canada-based computer chip maker in a new effort that ultimately is expected to create high-quality voice services.
AudioCodes (News - Alert) – an Israel-based company that designs, manufactures and sells advanced Voice over IP and converged VoIP and data networking products and applications to service providers and enterprises – is a platinum sponsor of ITEXPO and officials from the company are participating in three speaking sessions during the show, which concludes tomorrow.
Those sessions include “Distributed Enterprises: Can You Reduce OperatingCosts & Maintain Reliability?,” “Pushing the Envelope with HD Voice: A State-of-the-Industry Panel Discussion” and “Who's Listening? The Truth About Enterprise SIP Security.”
According to today’s announcement, the so-called “VE890” voice telephony chipset from Ottawa-based Zarlink Semiconductor is linked with the AudioCodes Tulip AC494 ATA reference design. Officials from both companies say the joint solution helps residential gateway equipment designers meet new “green” performance standards that limit power consumption for voice-over-broadband equipment.
Shaul Weissman, vice president of VoIP processors at AudioCodes, said that Zarlink’s VE890 is another enhancement to our feature rich Tulip AC494 ATA, which keeps it at the state-of-the-art of today’s ATA solutions.
“The AC494 Tulip reference design with VE890 support enables designers to quickly develop VoIP applications while at the same time reduce their bill of materials,” Weissman said. “We are delighted to be working closely with Zarlink to deploy VoIP reference solutions based on the VE890 series.”
Specifically, the foreign exchange office functionality of the VE890 offers common noise rejection and radio frequency immunity. Zarlink officials say the echo-free, impedance-matching feature of the VE890 series eliminates echo to improve voice quality on the FXO channel.
According to Jacques Issa, director of VoIP marketing and applications with Zarlink’s communication products group, combining the industry’s lowest power FXS and unique echo-free FXO from Zarlink with AudioCodes’ “field-proven DSP VoIP software and integrated AC494 SoC, the new reference design offers equipment manufacturers the best-in-class, ready-to-deploy solution for the fast growing residential gateway market.”
