Next week: Huntsville, AL, home of ADTRAN (and Digium)

Next week this reporter will be a guest of ADTRAN as the company conducts its second annual media event in Huntsville, Alabama.   The telecommunications equipment manufacturer is planning to make at least one announcement relating to unified communications (UC) during the event, but is likely to be more low-key when it comes to its HD voice support.

ADTRAN’s line of IP phones have been engineered to acoustically support G.722, but the company has been reluctant/conservative in rolling out HD voice support through a firmware upgrade (a la Aastra and Hi-Q) and has yet to officially announce one; this, however, is likely to change since everyone else in the IP handset market has either rolled in G.722 or is planning in the 1Q2010.

Digium is within an stone’s throw of the three building ADTRAN complex and if time permits, this reporter will probably make a quick visit.
