Aperto Networks, a leading WiMAX systems provider serving over 200 operators in 65 countries, said today that a growing number of its customers are using Aperto’s products to deliver business-quality Voice-over-IP (VOIP) services, often at service prices that are significantly more competitive than those of existing service providers.
TransAria is using Aperto Networks’ solutions to offer business-grade Voice-over-IP services throughout the state of Montana. The service allows enterprises of any size to significantly reduce their telecommunications expenses by shifting from leased T1 circuits to transporting voice over packet networks.
Aperto has come up with an efficient solution for operators concerning the vexing issue of offering voice and data. While voice traffic is characterized by low bandwidth and a low tolerance for error and latency, data traffic is quite the opposite – high-bandwidth and more tolerant of bit errors and latency. Aperto’s patented technology can treat voice and data traffic uniquely, allocating appropriate levels of bandwidth to account for low latency requirements for voice services. Furthermore, the upcoming Software Release V5.4, due out later this week, will enhance the QoS (Quality of Service) system to support over-subscription of VOIP services, enabling operators to further optimize their wireless bandwidth and fine-tune their business models.
“Delivering solutions to high-end enterprise users, Aperto Networks is known to have an advanced VoIP delivery platform, said Adlane Fellah, Senior Analyst with Maravedis Research.
In Europe, Aperto customer, Iberbanda, Spain’s largest broadband wireless carrier, is in the process of deploying Aperto’s PacketMAX solution and is anticipating a robust voice services offering.
