Voxox Announces New Patent-pending VoIP Codec with Proven Superior Voice Quality for OTT Services in Competitive Testing
February 22, 2016
Unique compression-decompression technology is currently available only to service provider and OEM partners as part of company's Platform as a Service offering
BARCELONA (MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS) and SAN DIEGO – February 22, 2016 – Voxox®, the most comprehensive unified communications Platform as a Service company, today announced at Mobile World Congress, being held at Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain on February 22-25, 2016, that the company's new patent-pending VoIP codec is now available to Voxox partners (e.g., mobile and cable operators, OEMs, and other service providers) as part of the Voxox Platform as a Service offering. As the core of VoIP calling, a codec is used to encode and compress voice signals into digital form for transmission and can vary in aspects such as sound quality, bandwidth, computational requirements, and more. In recent tests, the new Voxox codec has dramatically outperformed popular competitive technologies in low connectivity environments with significant packet loss. Voxox is demonstrating these test results and showcasing its new codec at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Hall 1 (Booth 1H31).
"We believe in handcrafting communication technology that integrates naturally into the lives and habits of our customers and improves the quality and effectiveness of their interactions," said Bryan Hertz, CEO and co-founder of Voxox. "Our new innovative codec is just one element of our Platform as a Service infrastructure, which is designed to help partners build best of breed unified communication experiences."
In poor bandwidth situations, where voice packets can frequently get lost, VoIP calls are known to get choppy, and ultimately drop off. In multiple MOS (Mean Opinion Score) tests, Voxox compared the call quality of its newly developed codec against that of Skype, We Chat, and Line. Skype, We Chat and Line experienced significant voice call quality degradation around 20 percent packet loss and became unusable at roughly 40 percent packet loss. Voxox's new codec, on the other hand, consistently sustained higher quality calls and remained usable at 40 percent packet loss, significantly outperforming others with regards to voice quality.
This innovation can be of particularly high value to service providers in countries that have poor bandwidth or in poor bandwidth situations in hotels, convention centers, airports or rural areas.
