Las Vegas, Nevada – Upstart over-the-top/SIM player Truphone is bringing the Opus wideband codec to its clients and network.
Ed Guy said the codec is already within its Apple iPhone client, but not yet turned on for client-to-client calling within its network. Support for Opus is also being added to the company’s other softclients, with network activation expected “within a few weeks.”
Earlier in the week, Truphone announced international shared minutes plans for businesses with voice, text, and data.
The Opus codec is also supported by CounterPath. WebRTC seems to be a driving force behind the current wave of Opus adoption, as companies work to be interoperable with the open source in-browser voice standard.
