announces the release of its NetBorder Transcoding Gateway, the latest product in the growing range of gateway appliances to serve enterprises worldwide. This new gateway facilitates the interconnection of VoIP devices and networks with support for transcoding between a wide range of codecs-from low-bandwidth to HD-that are employed throughout the rapidly growing enterprise communications landscape.
The new NetBorder Transcoding Gateway provides bandwidth savings in interoffice VoIP and SIP trunking deployments with support for narrowband G.723.1 and G.729 codecs. Additionally, the appliance enables seamless connections between various SIP implementations such as those using different RTP packet sizes.
Beyond delivering bandwidth efficiency, the Transcoding Gateway offers many options for consistently high voice quality. In addition to the wide variety of narrowband codecs, support for HD voice codecs such as G.722 and G.722.1 makes it possible for HD and non-HD compliant devices to interoperate. On networks that are susceptible to packet loss, and the attending degradation of voice quality, more resilient codecs such as iLBC can be used to improve the performance and deliver solid call quality.
Available as a 1U appliance, the NetBorder Transcoding Gateway allows transcoding between any supported codec from a wide range including, iLBC, GSM-FR and as well as all common SIP and HD voice formats. These can be selected on a per call basis allowing for complete flexibility and the gateway can support up to 4000 simultaneous SIP sessions. The appliance provides very low latency processing to ensure low-jitter and excellent call quality.
