GIPS roster of mobile VoIP customers is growing
- KT Networks, part of Korea Telecom group, will be adding VoIP features to its Windows Mobile smartphone. The company will be using GIPS voice processing solution which includes HD voice capabilities. GIPS VoiceEngine Mobile for Windows provides support for de facto wideband standard, iSAC and iPCM-wb.
Currently GIPS is a supplier of core voice processing for the following mobile VoIP providers: LG-Nortel, Nimbuzz, GreemPacket/Telecom Malaysia, Tencent, Optimobile and Movial.
GIPS made a name for itself providing voice processing codecs for unpredictable (wireline) IP networks. VoIP over 3G and 4G adds a few more challenges. Therefore VoIP processing solutions such as the one provided by GIPS will be a crucial component to provide quality voice offering. A bigger challenge according to GIPS will be the education of all divisions within carriers.
We wrote about the possible use of 3G-324M standard for VoIP over 3G. GIPS believes that 3G-324M “is an appendix for a dying technology - circuit switch.”
