At IP Convergence in Paris, Technnicolor (www.technicolor.com) announced a new entry-level SIP phone. Now if they’d only use the term “HD voice” instead of “HD sound.” However, the phone supports not one, but two common HD voice codec.
The announcement came as a part of a larger one showcasing Technicolor’s MediaAccess communications products.
Designed for the SME, the Technicolor TB12 includes two 10/100 Ethernet ports and Power over Ethernet (PoE) support. HD voice codec support includes both G.722 and G.722.2 – more commonly known as AMR-WB within the mobile world.
As noted above, both the Technicolor release and the English data sheet use the ambiguous term “HD sound” instead of the more concise “HD voice” to indicate wideband support.
