Part 2: Interconnecting HD voice
and Video: Options galore


Service providers and carriers of all shapes and sizes badly want to move from a PSTN-based system to an all-IP world with SIP interconnections, enabling seamless end-to-end HD voice calling, video calling, and other powerful business and consumer applications. However, it is early days for higher-level SIP interoperability, with a few upstart service providers offering it, others talking about building their own IP peering fabric and Sprint offering the promise of it in the future.

Complicating matters in the the HD voice world are numerous speech codecs and the necessity to translate between PSTN-grade service, G.722 for HD voice in the broadband and enterprise worlds, AMR-WB for mobile HD voice services in Europe, and the independence of Skype’s SILK codec just to make life even more interesting.

What Attendees will learn:
  • Available service options for HD voice interconnectivity
  • Information on popular HD voice codecs and their applications
  • How to transcode between different HD voice codec "islands"

Part 1:
Part 1: The Year of HD

After years of sitting on the sidelines, HD Voice is poised to become The Next Big Thing in VoIP.

A majority of IP handsets now support G.722, business VoIP providers from Alteva to Simple Signal are already offering HD voice service, 8x8 has deployed over 70,000 HD voice handsets, and Verizon installed almost 5,000 Polycom HD voice at their corporate headquarters. In Europe, France Telecom has over a half million HD voice users on broadband and has started offering mobile HD voice service in Moldova; BT, Telecom Italia, and T-Mobile are all jumping on the bandwagon.

Providing two to six times more audio fidelity over a regular PSTN call, HD voice delivers richer presence, a better, more relaxing experience for conference calls including the ability to clearly identify individual speakers, improved comprehension in multi-language calls, and a friendlier, more accurate environment for voice recognition and speech-to-text services.

What Attendees will learn:
  • The surging use of HD voice in North American and
    around the globe;
  • Advantages of HD voice over a regular PSTN call;
  • How affordable HD voice is compared to simple VoIP
