Ditech Debuts Dynamic Transcoding

Ditech Networks announced a Dynamic Transcoding capability for its Packet Voice Processor (PVP) that supports a wide range of compressed and uncompressed codecs. The transcoding enables Service Providers to directly connect diverse codecs without compromising scalability, network performance or call quality. It can also reduce the required equipment session capacity for supporting VoIP service by up to 50 percent.

Specifically, Ditech's Dynamic Transcoding provides the ability to connect directly between 10 different industry standard codecs, resulting in thousands of potential combinations for interconnecting calls that traverse IP networks. In addition to voice codecs, the PVP also supports Dual-Tone Multi-Frequency (DTMF) and fax conversion for highly reliable IP transport.

Ditech said its Dynamic Transcoding can be combined with its Experience Intelligence (EXi) and Voice Quality Assurance (VQA) solutions. EXi non-intrusively monitors and measures voice quality during each call, and delivers an industry-standard voice quality score that reflects the subscriber call experience. VQA mitigates network- induced voice quality impairments and impairments from the caller's environment in real-time, on both ends of the call. The PVP platform simultaneously supports Dynamic Transcoding, VQA and EXi applications with a capacity of 16,128 concurrent calls per platform.
