AudioCodes Announces WebRTC Phone



AudioCodes Announces WebRTC Phone

Native Support for the OPUS High-Definition Voice Codec is Paving the Way for
End-to-End Quality Communications Between Enterprises and Browser-Based
Telephony

LOD, Israel, June 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AudioCodes (Nasdaq:AUDC), a
leading provider of solutions that enable enterprises and service providers to
transition to all-IP voice networks, today announced OPUS support for its
400HD series of IP phones. With this enhancement, AudioCodes can facilitate HD
real-time communication between WebRTC services and SIP-based Contact Centers
and Unified Communications (UC) solutions. WebRTC is expected to dramatically
accelerate the adoption of browser-based real-time voice and video
communications. AudioCodes believes that supporting this evolution will become
important for business communications.

WebRTC currently supports voice communication using legacy narrowband G.711 or
the new wideband OPUS codecs. The resiliency of the OPUS codec to network
conditions and its ability to accommodate the available bandwidth in
best-effort networks is expected to make it the codec of choice for high
quality voice calling. Planned for Q4 of 2013, AudioCodes' native support of
OPUS is designed to deliver superior end-to-end voice quality between a
WebRTC-enabled end-point and an enterprise phone while removing the need for
transcoding.

"WebRTC will drive new ways of communicating between consumers and
businesses," commented Yehuda Herscovici, Vice President, Products at
AudioCodes. "The ability to preserve voice quality and communicate seamlessly
is becoming of paramount importance for enterprises to capture this
opportunity. Our OPUS-enabled IP Phone is expected become a key player in this
arena."

These considerations as well as the opportunities created by WebRTC for
Contact Centers and Unified Communications and Collaboration will be discussed
by Alan Percy, Senior Director of Strategic Marketing for North America, at
the upcoming WebRTC Conference & Expo in Atlanta, 26-27 June 2013.
