Texas Instruments Enhances its VoIP Gateway

Texas Instruments introduced a flexible conferencing solution that can be used in a variety of product architectures, including dedicated conferencing bridges or media servers, or it can be used as a component of a standalone VoIP gateway.

TI has developed an Enhanced SMV (selectable mode vocoder), which increases channel densities in carrier-class VoIP systems by approximately 20%, thereby reducing system costs for equipment manufacturers. Enhanced SMV offers the same subjective voice quality as the SMV bit exact implementation, but uses far fewer MIPS (million instructions per second), further optimizing TI's TNETV3010 VOiP solution for high-density CDMA2000 wireless gateway designs.

TI is also upgrading its high density product offerings by adding its Telinnovation Echo Canceller to its TNETV3010 product.

Among the key features included in this solution are:

  • Intelligent speaker selection algorithm, required to ensure that noise does not degrade conference performance

  • Support for multiple conferencing bridges -- up to 96 total conference ports

  • The ability to add and remove conference participants

  • Conference capability supports any combination of network and TDM
    participants, and conference participants are not limited to the same
    codec type

  • No impact to per core channel capabilities and features due to the
    presence or initiation of a conference.
