What is wideband?

Sometimes referred to as HD-Voice, wideband means sampling the voice at a frequency of 16 kHz vs. the regular 8 kHz. Increasing the sampling frequency for wideband speech produces much more natural, comfortable and intelligible speech. GIPS holds the de facto industry standard codec for wideband speech - iSAC.

What is the user benefit of wideband telephony?

Today’s telephony voice quality is limited. With wideband the sampling rate is increased and hence more details of the sound can be transmitted. Wideband telephony provides much more natural, comfortable and intelligible speech compared to traditional telephony. Audio conferencing is one application that benefits significantly from this technology. The result is the ability to hear sound characteristics of a person’s voice. Wideband technology makes it easier in conference calls to detect who is talking, making the conferencing much more comfortable.

How does GIPS software achieve its extremely good performance?

GIPS products have all been specifically designed for packet switched (IP) networks. No inter-packet dependency, multi-descriptive coding, and variable rate coding are examples of methods used to obtain this extreme performance.

What number of consecutive packet loss can GIPS software recover from?

There are many different factors that affect the recovery process. However, GIPS products are more robust to packet loss, including consecutive packet loss than any other product or solution set in the market.

Are GIPS products hardware or software?

GIPS products are easily integrated software solutions.

For what platforms are GIPS products optimized?

GIPS products are available on most any platform.
