WAEA2009: Low-cost VoIP calls over BGAN network at hand

TriaGnoSys has successfully demonstrated its VoCeM satellite communications compression software over Inmarsat's BGAN network, and reports that it achieved good quality calls with a total bit rate of only 3.3 kbit/s.

The test, which was conducted last week, "opens up a huge potential for offering low-cost VoIP calls over BGAN, backed by the reliability and global reach of the Inmarsat-4 network", says Inmarsat chief engineer, global networks and engineering, D V Ramana.

TriaGnoSys managing director Axel Jahn adds: "Our next job is to work with satellite-based VoIP and GSM suppliers to bring down call costs.

"In particular, we are in discussion with air, land and sea communications providers, since installing VoCeM requires only a simple upgrade."
