From the webinar description–
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.
Attendees will learn about available service options for HD voice interconnectivity, information on popular HD voice codecs and their application, and how to transcode between different HD voice codec “islands.”
