CommuniGate Systems adds Global IP Solutions' High Definition Voice to its Web 2.0 collaboration client Pronto!
The GIPS VoiceEngine will deliver HD Voice within Pronto! to improve voice communications for business subscribers for superior Unified Communications
Mill Valley, 30 March 2009 - CommuniGate Systems, the leader in carrier-class Mobile Unified Communications, today announced a strategic partnership with Global IP Solutions (Oslo Børs: GIPS), the leading provider of IP multimedia processing solutions. CommuniGate Systems has embedded the GIPS VoiceEngine to power voice communications in its Pronto! UC client framework. Pronto! provides broadband and mobile network operators with a client framework to deliver Value Added Services (VAS) for Unified Communications in the Software as a Service (SaaS) model.
Pronto! delivers a single sign-in interface for all forms of communications from e-mail to presence, IM, VoIP, Rich Media, and Mobility. Pronto! is built with Adobe® Flex® 3 and is deployed in the browser with the Adobe Flash® Player and to the desktop with Adobe AIR™. The Web 2.0 client Pronto! unifies all forms of communications together with a framework that allows expansion or new applications to snap into the server or UI as modules. Pronto! allows carriers to build modular VAS e.g. delivering a virtualized Mobile Office to business subscribers with full-featured Mobile Unified Communications specifically for the SME market.
Released in 2003, the GIPS VoiceEngine has enabled many of the world’s major consumer clients with HD Voice. With the growth and demand of UC, the GIPS VoiceEngine also powers enterprise applications with HD Voice capability. Pronto! with GIPS VoiceEngine inside will enable a richer and more powerful experience for business subscribers.
"CommuniGate Systems has done an excellent job providing Unified Communications to network operators with Pronto! and we're pleased to be part of this new wave of communication," says Larry Golob, Senior Director of Business Development GIPS. "CommuniGate is setting a new bar for UC and GIPS is working closely with them to make sure the bar is set as high as possible for voice quality."
"Global IP Solutions has been a pioneer in HD Voice for many years. They have over 800 million downloads and a growing list of brand name customers to prove it," says Jon Doyle, VP Business Development CommuniGate Systems. "GIPS has a unique engineering team that is focused on addressing the processing issues related to IP communications on various network topologies. With GIPS superior engineering skills, we are able to deliver on the promise of a truly business grade UC experience."
GIPS VoiceEngine is a complete solution that goes beyond the codec and is designed to handle all necessary voice processing for IP networks including jitter buffer and echo cancellation. It provides superior voice quality even under the most adverse network conditions.
