New VoIP Technology unveiled by Powernet ISP

Wednesday, March 16th 2011

The popular internet service provider operating in the United Kingdom, Powernet has reportedly announced a fresh VoIP (voice over internet protocol) technology, which it claims will dramatically boost the number of calls possible to be made over a standard internet (broadband) connection.

The new internet telephony technology unveiled by Powernet dubbed ViBE (Voice over Internet protocol Bandwidth Enhancer) is based on bandwidth optimisation technology, which treats voice data traffic as priority.

According to the broadband provider, this meant that an average ADSL connection would allow at least sixty simultaneous voice calls compared to the meagre three that has been conventionally offered.

G.729 compression is used by the technology for ensuring that less banwidth was taken up by voice, running at 8Kbps on ADSL rather than the typical 42Kbps. The internet service provider said that the service would hardly have a negative impact on data traffic.

It is noteworthy here that the traditional services based on VoIP could suffer from up to 100ms latency, which was likely to cause interruptions and delays. Here latency of around 5 ms is offered by ViBE, according to the claims of Powernet.
