IT EXPO, Miami Beach, January 21, 2010

Ari Rabban, CEO of and Alon Cohen, EVP/CTO will be speaking at ITEXPO, Miami Beach, January 21, 2010 at a session titled:

Propelling HD Voice to the Mainstream & HD vs. SD: Can you please spell that phonetically?

We’ve suffered the same sub-par audio quality for more than 100 years now, but the telecom industry is finally turning the corner and adopting wideband audio. Several factors are enabling both businesses and consumers to make the switch to HD Voice, including the wide adoption of VoIP, the improved technology that is becoming a standard in voice endpoints, and support on the carrier side. Major players in the VoIP industry are also doing their part in making this technology available to the masses. In 2008, Polycom announced its Siren 7 (or G.722.1) codec would be available royalty-free. Six months later, Skype did the same for its SILK codec. So what’s next? This session (register here) will take a look at the state of the industry today and how quickly we see that point of inflection arriving, including what it will take to deliver inter-carrier HD voice along with the major considerations necessary in planning for, deploying and maintaining a HD-capable network.
