Calyptech Deploys Octasic Echo Cancellation Devices in VQEST 300 Voice Quality Enhancement System.

MONTREAL, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Octasic, a semiconductor vendor delivering silicon solutions to telecom infrastructure manufacturers for use in wireless, Voice over Packet (VoP), and TDM processing, today announced that Calyptech has selected Octasic's OCT6100 Series of echo cancellation and voice quality enhancement solutions as the voice processors powering the Calyptech VQEST 300 Voice Quality Enhancement System.

The VQEST 300 is Calyptech's latest innovative telecommunications solution, delivering voice quality enhancements in even the most challenging carrier network environments, including Wireless Local Loop, Circuit Switched PSTN and GSM/CDMA. Fully ITU-T G.168 (2002) compliant, the product is capable of industry-leading, bi-directional voice quality enhancements on up to 320 voice channels. Some specific features of the VQEST include: superior cancellation of hybrid and acoustic echo in numerous deployment configurations, consistent performance independent of speaker and background noise characteristics, and exceptional double talk performance.

Selecting a superior echo cancellation algorithm was of particular importance to Calyptech. Their customers, including a prominent Asian Pacific telecommunications service provider, stressed the significance of voice quality features when selecting amongst telecom vendor equipment. Consequently, prior to deciding on Octasic, Calyptech worked closely with their customers to qualify the Octasic echo cancellation algorithm before deployment in customer networks. Exceptional voice clarity, and outstanding handling of double-talk were key reasons that led Calyptech to select Octasic over other leading semiconductor vendors.

"Immediately, we were impressed with the quality of Octasic's echo cancellation/voice quality enhancement algorithm." said John Maher, CEO of Calyptech. "The difference in quality, compared to the incumbent echo cancellation solution, was immediately obvious and significant. The high-quality of the Octasic solution and the level of development support we received were second-to-none."

Michel Laurence, CEO of Octasic added, "We are pleased to be working with Calyptech, an emerging vendor of voice-quality enhancement equipment. The quality of the monitoring and measurement tools integrated in the VQEST 300 contributes to making it an extremely impressive voice-quality hardware platform. Calyptech and Octasic have demonstrated significant expertise in equipment deployment and the resolution of VQE issues in wireless networks."
