To provide advanced VoIP functionality
D2 Technologies has introduced the company’s vPort Gateway (GW) embedded VoIP software on Ralink Technology’s RT3050, RT3350 and RT3052 802.11n networking processors.
According to the company, the joint offering gives OEMs and ODMs an economical way to develop competitive advanced wireless access points and residential gateways that deliver triple-play voice/data/wireless functionality.
Lon Wu, marketing director of Ralink, said: We are pleased that D2 Technologies is providing its vPort GW software on the RT3050, RT3350 and RT3052 processors. By optimising D2 Technologies’ vPort VoIP solutions for voice, advanced telephony and voice signaling on the RT3050, RT3350 and RT3052, we’re making it easier for OEMs and ODMs to develop best-in-class wired and wireless networking products.
Ralink offers 802.11n single-chip routers that include a 384MHz MIPS24ke core, 802.11n media access controller (MAC) and baseband, integrated radios, and a 5-port ethernet switch with PHYs.
The company claimed that when Ralink’s routers are integrated with D2’s vPort GW software platform, the RT3050, RT3350 and RT3052 provide advanced VoIP functionality including an application layer, a SIP protocol signaling module, advanced voice quality assurance technology such as jitter buffer and packet loss compensation, telephony drivers, and a softDSP voice engine with all the necessary DSP algorithms for voice compression, echo cancellation, tone detection/generation, comfort noise generation, caller ID, FAX relay, and more.
Doug Makishima, chief operating officer of D2 Technologies, said: The combination of our products results in a highly-scalable and cost-effective solution for OEMs and ODMs that eliminates bandwidth-intensive processing issues and facilitates the production of elegantly simple designs for next generation WLAN applications.
