The demo by Global IP Sound, which is in the Intel booth (Hall 4 Stand K24) as an Intel XScale development partner, illustrates how Running Voice IP delivers real time voice communication over an 802.11 wireless network with sound quality that is better than mobile and traditional PSTN phones.
Running Voice IP Light Package is a high-quality voice-over-IP solution addressing the need for cost-efficient wireless tools for workgroup communication. Running Voice IP Light Package has narrowed down the concept of voice-over-IP to a minimum-cost workgroup communication solution that is easy to install and use and is especially designed for wireless LAN environments and clients exist for Pocket PC PDAs as well as for laptops and desktop PCs. Running Voice IP Light Package is the first voice over IP product launched by Pocket Presence in a planned suite of voice over IP products.
"Wireless LANs utilizing applications like Running Voice IP must be able to overcome the adverse affects of packet networks. We help Running Voice IP deal with those quality of sound issues, so Pocket Presence resources can be better utilized to improve the overall user experience with the software," said Gary Hermansen, president CEO, Global IP Sound. "GIPS VoiceEngine with NetEQ and the other SoundWare modules offered by Global IP Sound are specifically designed for packetized networks like 802.11b WiFi environments to reduce latency, packet loss and jitter."
Real-time work-group communication made easy
The Running Voice IP Light Package is a unique workgroup communication solution in that it allows for employees to talk to each other in real-time without any requirements but the corporate LAN and PCs.
Running Voice IP is available for desktop PCs, Laptops as well as Pocket PC terminals, meaning instant access to colleagues at their desk or anywhere on the site as long as the corporate LAN provide cover.
Running Voice IP Light Package is a true voice-over-IP telephony (VoIP)solution. However, it narrows down the concept to a minimum-cost work- group communication solution. Hence, rather than to provide a complex dedicated IP solution that requires a rack of expensive technology and a dedicated IT staff, it uses the already existing technology in a normal corporate network.
Furthermore, Running Voice IP is really easy to setup by using the "Find the Server" feature. Running Voice IP Light Package is also cost-efficient to manage and use, as it minimizes the need for IT staff approval and management. Actually, any PC in the corporate network can be assigned as a server. By using the ordinary email addresses for dialing users can get started using Running Voice IP within seconds after installation.
At an incomparably low cost Running Voice IP Light Package provides all components needed to start with Voice-over-IP (including a server, a PC client and Pocket PC client).
In most cases there are no additional requirements since the solution uses common corporate technology (LAN, WLAN, PC and Pocket PC).
Running Voice IP Light Package replaces the need for cellular phones for reaching locally mobile staff.
Running Voice IP Light Package is easy to set up and manage.
Running Voice IP is a real-time application and therefore it requires a well- balanced IP network. When used in a wireless LAN environment (WLAN) it is advised that before usage check network performance for package loss and package latency.
