Veraz Launches Wireless Network Compression Solution

Veraz Networks launched a new Wireless Network Compression solution that allows wireless carriers to benefit from VoIP when they are required to transport calls over leased lines. The solution, based on Veraz's I-Gate 4000 PRO media gateways, provides voice compression as high as 12 to 1 over VoIP trunks. In addition to the high quality compression and echo cancellation, the Wireless Network Compression solution features silence suppression with superior Voice Activity Detection (VAD) and Comfort Noise Generation (CNG), and intelligent packet loss concealment (PLC) with low-delay and non-blocking.

Veraz said wireless operators are able to lower their operational costs by using compressed VoIP to transport calls when they are required to lease circuits. This is often the case when interconnecting sites across regulated borders. In India, as well as many other countries, wireless operators are required to interconnect their Mobile Switching Centers over expensive leased circuits.

"For mobile operators, our solution actually enables them to significantly lower the toll that they currently pay, and thus provide much more competitive rates to their customers," said Amit Chawla, Executive VP, Global Marketing at Veraz Networks.
