SPIRIT Embedded Voice Engine helps Memotec deliver VoIP Gateways

Moscow (Russia) 12 October, 2006 – SPIRIT DSP (www.spiritdsp.com), the world’s leading provider of embedded voice and communication software products, today announced that Memotec, the leading supplier of voice optimization solutions for GSM cellular operators, has licensed SPIRIT’s TeamSpirit® Embedded voice engine to ensure the best voice performances in its Multi-service Gateways.

For 10 years SPIRIT has been developing and providing high quality voice products to telecom infrastructure equipment and terminal devices manufacturers. Working with SPIRIT complete voice and telephony product portfolio, gateway OEMs do not have to deal with integration of software components from different software vendors, increasing the risks and wasting time on integration. TeamSpirit® Embedded delivers complete voice and telephony product set along with integration services for VoIP infrastructure equipment vendors. TeamSpirit® Embedded supports GSM AMR-NB, G.723.1, G.729AB, and a range of other codecs, Network Line Echo Canceller, various tones detection and generation, other telephony components, Fax and Data Modems, and a suite of software utilities simplifying the application development. TeamSpirit® Embedded minimizes CPU load and memory consumption (it requires only 12MHz to run one voice channel on TI C64 DSP) and can be used to create high-capacity (dozens thousands of channels) voice gateways for next generation networks. Earlier this year SPIRIT had already delivered its VoIP solutions to gateways vendors such as STROM Telecom, QuesCom and others.

Memotec has integrated SPIRIT voice products to its CX Series Multiservice Gateway. MemotecТs enhanced gateway supports from 1 up to 16 T1/E1s, 30 channels digital PCM voice trunk per module, and 1 up to 4 modules per chassis, as well as various types of data and voice interfaces and protocols. It also provides GSM Abis and RAN optimization, cellular traffic aggregation, interface and protocol adaptation, switching and routing functions.

“Having integrated SPIRIT voice and telephony software, Memotec obtained a complete set of advantages like state of the art Fax/Modem signal processing, a complete set of voice compression codecs delivering superior toll-grade voice quality including built-in echo-canceller, and low-cost SPIRIT integration services”, stated Claude Rocray, VP Engineering at Memotec. “SPIRIT GSM AMR-NB codec enables us to deliver Mobile Operators higher voice compression performances, while improving significantly the voice quality, a critical issue for Mobile Operators. We are glad to having discovered SPIRIT unique offering. WeТre definitely sure it will help keeping Memotec the leader in our market.”

“We are happy to work together with Memotec providing them with TeamSpirit® Embedded. Without SPIRIT solutions, an integration of separate components significantly increases the cost of development and – even more important – it increases risks and time-to-market, while one of the main competitive advantages today is the ability to respond quickly to market demands with high quality integrated products”, says Slava Borilin, VP Products at SPIRIT DSP. “That’s why SPIRIT aims at development of complete and integrated software solutions, minimizing expenses at the stages of OEM product development and market launch, suitable for Residential/SMB/SOHO as well as for high capacity transcoding servers and gateways.”
