VoX Communications Announces Additions to its Wholesale VoIP Platform
VoX Communications (News - Alert), a subsidiary of Pervasip and provider of wholesale VoIP cloud-based telephony solutions, has developed and deployed several video technology additions to its award-winning VoIP technology platform.
Company officials said VoX's VoIP platform is extremely stable and scalable with high quality voice traffic. As it is based on Linux-based server cluster, users can scale the platform cost effectively.
The company has already used VoIP load balancing and virtual servers in the platform. The VoIP platform is also capable of adding new features. An example of this ability is the recent video support and features for the Worldgate Ojo Vision video phone that VoX is now selling.
Back in March, VoX Communications also announced it developed video voice mail as an enhanced feature to the Ojo Vision phone.
Pervasip's Chief Information Officer Mark Richards said, “VoX engineers developed video voice mail for the Ojo Vision, something that is actually very difficult to do. If we design with the atomic components in mind, we are able to break down video voicemail to smaller components.”
As a result, VoX can record a video message, play it, and also store it in the cloud on its server farm. Once they have that, they are able to build code to allow anyone in a corporate environment to send that video message to other video phones deployed in their network, even thousands of phones via pre set 'groups.'
VoX believes that lack of understanding of the atomic components is one of the reasons that other video products have a problem with keeping the voice and video in sync. “It is not Internet lag, or ‘latency’ – it is that the engineers did not initially take the time to write the code to keep the voice and video components in sync.”
By working with Ojo Vision, VoX was able to join one or more parties in a video conference or 'room' and 'stitch' multiple video streams so that they would present as one stream. This capability is crucial if a business is trying to live social communicating, VoX officials said.
“With VoX's evolving video and VoIP toolbox, we believe we are positioned to be at the forefront of what is likely to be an explosive market in Video Telepresence (News - Alert), live social and other fixed and mobile VoIP developments,” Richards added.
The company is also looking at recent developments with Google's WebRTC. WebRTC and new protocols like Jingle are potential new building blocks that may become the next personalities deployed to the cloud and enable all kinds of new social media tools, so they are significant to companies like VoX.
“While we plan to continue for the rest of 2011 with our development work with the Ojo Vision, we also see our mobile VoIP products coming back into play and being even more relevant in 2012 when we expect mass adoption of better smart phone clients capable of tighter integration with the VoX video and VoIP services,” Richards said.
“Further network developments in both 3G and 4G in the U.S. and Canada are also feeding the mobile VoIP revolution and we believe will continue to do so even more rapidly in 2012 and 2013,” Richards continued.
