snom klarVoice Delivers the Next Generation of VoIP Sound

By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor

Snom technology AG, a developer and manufacturer of advanced voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) phones for the commercial and residential markets, has introduced a next generation of voice.

The snom klarVOICE, a wideband handset, can be adapted to all snom VoIP telephones.
It captures more than twice the spectrum of voice frequencies than standard phones enabling phone conversations with greater clarity and richness.

The new snom klarVOICE handset works with the codec G.722. This codec is able to shrink the bit rate of the voice channel down to 12.65 kbps, offering quality.

In standard narrowband VoIP calls, the voice signal is sampled at 8,000 times per second, resulting in an effective voice pass-band of about 200 to 3,300 Hz. The new wideband handset offers a doubled sample rate, providing an effective pass-band of 50 to 7,000 Hz. Use of snom klarVOICE results in a much higher fidelity voice call, more akin to talking to someone in the same room rather than over a phone.

“Telephones have remained unchanged for so long, most people have no idea what limitations they have lived with,” said Dr. Michael Knieling, executive vice president of marketing and sales. “But VoIP also lays the groundwork for a revolution in the quality of voice we communicate with!”

Recognized for its high quality, customizable and cost-effective business solutions, snom technology AG (News - Alert) is also differentiated by the company’s history in the VoIP industry, and its dedication to high security standards.

All of snom’s software exists in the firmware on the phones – making it easier for users to download updates and new features. snom customers benefit from the interoperability and flexibility that the snom telephones offer, including plug and play integration and universal compatibility with any SIP-based telephony platform.

The snom klarVOICE handset, which can be adapted to any existing snom 3xx series VoIP phone (snom 300, 320, 360, 370) using snom’s latest firmware release (Version7.1.33), is available for an MSRP of $32.50.
