Cedar Point Technology has announced “Enhanced HD Voice” for its Safari C3 Multimedia Switching System, a software upgrade/drop in.
The software upgrade enables end-to-end HD voice calls between HD voice end-points through the Safari C3. Cedar Points estimates that less than 20 percent down to as little as 1 percent of calls are actually in HD. It also looks like – but hard to tell from the press release – the software upgrade also does transcoding between narrowband and HD.
Cedar Pont says it has more than 7.5 million voice lines deployed through a customer base including cable operators, CLECs, wireless operators and universities.
Time to get clarification on what exactly the “Enhanced” HD voice software load does; HD Voice News has emailed and called Cedar Point’s PR rep to provide clearer answers.
