AudioCodes Launches Transcoding Resource Blade Products

AudioCodes introduced its Transcoding Resource Blade (TRB) family as part of its IPmedia product line, adding a number of enhanced performance features that enable complex wireline and wireless transcoding processing required in IP Multi-media Subsystem (IMS) architecture and other VoIP implementations.

The TRB products support IP to IP conversion of a wide range of standard and low bit-rate (LBR) coders, including: G.711, G.726, G.727, G.723.1, G.729.a, iLBC, GSM-FR, GSM-EFR, AMR and others. In addition to voice coders, the TRB family also supports encryption/decryption, conversion of G.711 fax to T.38 and a number of DTMF conversions. Transcoding features are controlled via SIP, MGCP or via the high-performance AudioCodes API.

The TRB product family is available in a number of blade form factors and densities, including:

  • IPM-260/TRB -- PCI form factor, supporting up to 120 transcoding sessions

  • IPM-1610/TRB -- cPCI form factor, up to 240 transcoding sessions

  • IPM-6310/TRB -- cPCI form factor, up to 1008 transcoding sessions

In addition to the above PCI and cPCI version, an AdvancedTCA form factor product is planned for early 2007.
