Skype Devices to Embed GIPS Voice Engine

Skype-compatible IP phones will utilize Global IP Sound (GIPS)
software to enhance voice quality. The two companies have enjoyed a long, productive relationship, beginning with Skype's licensing of GIPS VoiceEngine PC in the summer of 2003.


  • GIPS VoiceEngine Mobile provides acoustic echo suppression and noise suppression, to maximize the quality of VoIP conversations. It also includes GIPS NetEQ, which is an advanced jitter buffering and packet loss concealment module that dramatically improves sound quality and minimizes latency in IP telephony systems. Other features including push-to-talk and call waiting are supported by GIPS VoiceEngine Mobile.

  • Global IP Sound, which is based in Stockholm, supplies its voice quality software to Skype, Yahoo, Microsoft, Ericsson, Nortel, WebEx, Texas Instruments, LongBoard, Inter-tel, PMC-Sierra and others.
