The ability to optimise transcoding between G.729 and G.711 codecs means IP telecoms operators can create more opportunities for revenue by routing VoIP traffic directly to and from bandwidth-constrained locations.
London, UK (PRWEB) February 25, 2010
Howler Technologies, a provider of cost effective and highly performant solutions to the telecoms industry, today announced it has expanded its Screamer transcoding product line by launching a 64-bit version of its highly successful Screamer G.729 transcoder card to markets worldwide.
VoIP network operators and large enterprises with IP call centres that support hundreds of agents can benefit from this high capacity G.729 transcoding solution, which has more than three times the transcoding power of any other PCI Express based product currently available. G.729 is a high-quality, low bit rate codec that saves bandwidth.
Howler Screamer does not rely on specialist Digital Signal Processing (DSP) hardware, so customers can configure their Screamer cards according to their business requirements and upgrade their transcoding capacity whenever they like. By adding multiple cards to a server, companies can build thousands of channels of transcoding into their networks at a fraction of the cost of deploying expensive media gateways.
“The ability to optimise transcoding between G.729 and G.711 codecs means IP telecoms operators can rationalise their infrastructure, as well as create more opportunities for revenue by routing VoIP traffic directly to and from bandwidth-constrained locations,” said Mike Vieyra, CEO of Howler.
“Many of our customers have been waiting for a 64-bit version of Screamer to arrive,” added Peter Briffett, Commercial Director of Howler Technologies. “We are pleased that we can now satisfy that demand.”
The Howler Screamer product line is compatible with many popular softswitches, such as Asterisk, FreeSWITCH, trixbox and elastix.
Howler Screamer is available to buy from the Howler’s channel partners and online at the Howler web store at http://www.howlertech.com/buy/. Per channel prices are as low as $7.19.
