Howler's Floating License Model Makes G.729 Transcoding Affordable for Windows IP PBXs

“By integrating our G.729 product set into their Windows IP PBX, VoIP providers can properly license this patent-encumbered technology at an affordable price and make possible the use of G.729 with their telephony platform.”

Howler Technologies today introduced its Howlets Screamer Windows Server Software Development Kit, WolfPack SDK. This kit will enable customers in the Windows VoIP IP PBX market to significantly increase the capability of their telephony systems, while using their own proprietary server software coupled with Howler’s Howlets G.729 software or its G.729 Screamer PCI-express hardware.

G.729, when applied to Voice over IP calls, compresses the audio data to use significantly less network bandwidth than a standard or uncompressed VoIP call. Howler’s WolfPack SDK will support virtually any number of simultaneous G.729 channels and is limited only by available processing power.

“The WolfPack SDK will enable a whole new range of customers who are developing on the Windows platform to turbo charge their IP telephony platforms,” stated Mike Vieyra, CEO of Howler Technologies. “By integrating our G.729 product set into their Windows IP PBX, VoIP providers can properly license this patent-encumbered technology at an affordable price and make possible the use of G.729 with their telephony platform.”

“The WolfPack SDK includes full integration support by the Howler team, which is representative of the quality of product you can expect from Howler. The development team will be available to fully support all Wolf Pack SDK projects,” Jay Fenton, CTO of Howler added. “The SDK includes our complete licensing engine, together with an API for license management, and is compatible with all licenses issued by Howler Technologies Ltd.”

Features Include:

  •     Howler’s Optimized G.729 Implementation allows a high volume of calls on a single server.
  •     Unique floating license model saves customers money: The licenses are not fixed to a server. You can buy G.729 licenses for the number of channels that are needed for production use, regardless of the number of machines making up the production cluster.
  •     Synchronous C API for creating, operating and destroying instances of the G.729 encoder and decoder.
  •     Synchronous C API for adding, removing, querying license keys and for setting quality and performance trial license modes.
  •     Win32/Win64 standalone license support.

Licenses are available to purchase now from Howler’s channel partners and online at the Howler web store at http://www.howlertech.com. Per channel prices are as low as US $8.99.
