VegaStream Software Release 6 Becomes Generally Available
Bracknell, UK. - April 2004:
Release 6 also allows the creation of QoS statistics from within the gateway, allowing service providers to monitor packet loss and network performance and so offer improved SLAs to their customers. It also improves call quality by enabling up to 128ms-echo cancellation without requiring a separate appliance.
"At VegaStream we continually invest in research and development in order to keep our products reflecting business customer needs," said Bryan Miller, VP Product Management & Development of VegaStream. "We also question our customers to identify the functionality they would like to see added or improved upon. Release 6 marks a culmination of this internal and external work to create a new version of VegaStream software which delivers on the requirements of the most demanding VoIP users."
Highlights of software Release 6 include:
H.323 version 4 compliant interface, enabling performance improvements and the implementation of new features, such as alternate gatekeeper support
Quality of service statistics at the end of calls, to help monitor performance
NAT traversal for H.323 and SIP, enabling VoIP calls to continue to work, despite changes to the IP address
Up to 128ms echo cancellation* to provide best-in-class voice quality
SIP registration and digest authentication (for all gateways), for added security
G.711 fallback for modems supported with T.38 for fax (H.323 and SIP),
providing flexible transport of various types of media
*Use of 128ms echo tail may result in reduced channel density on some products
