The partnership unlocks the ability for users of the snom 8XX series SIP phones and snom’s MeetingPoint conference phone, which support snom’s wideband audio, to utilize the Wyde Voice HD SoftBridge audio conferencing application. Wyde Voice HD SoftBridge is a software-based high definition audio and Web conferencing bridge technology that eliminates the need for Digital Signal Processing (DSP) cards and lets audio conferencing providers use off-the-shelf hardware to deploy software bridges that can scale from two to 10,000 concurrent user ports.
“We are pleased to be working with Wyde Voice as we continue our innovation and leadership in the HD VoIP market and partner with the companies developing innovative solutions to deliver HD audio capabilities to businesses large and small,” said Dr. Michael Knieling, executive vice president of marketing and sales for snom technology AG. “The Wyde Voice HD SoftBridge, used in concert with our snom 820 and 870 VoIP phones, can deliver superior audio conferences with the crisp and clear fidelity needed in today’s fast-paced business world.”
Wyde Voice’s HD SoftBridge supports leading high-definition voice technologies, like the G.722 codecs, iSAC and ties in a full-feature menu of conferencing capabilities that were once reserved for expensive legacy audio bridges. HD SoftBridge is available in two models, the SB1000 and SB3000, and uses open APIs that enable the control of bridge and conference call functionality from any enterprise or Web application. Along with supporting high-quality codecs, Wyde Voice HD SoftBridge offers a host of other capabilities including subconferences, Q&A, operator assistance, real-time speaker notification, conference broadcast and additional technology that guarantees voice quality even during periods of low bandwidth availability and network congestion.
