Bottom line good reports from TriaGnoSys, a satellite communications company, launched VoCeM, the world’s most efficient satellite communications compression software. Currently, voice over IP (VoIP) calls use up to 96 kbit/s, GSM use up to 30 kbit/s; using VoCeM, each call will only use 6 kbit/s. Satellite costs are therefore reduced significantly, meaning call costs for the end user can be much lower.
VoCeM reduces the kbit rate for calls, and increases the number of simultaneous calls each satellite link can handle. Using the VoCeM compressor, Inmarsat or Ku-band payload usage can be increased by a factor of between 5 and 10.
The VoCeM software has been designed to be installed on existing GSM, 3G/UMTS and VoIP communications servers, so no hardware upgrades are involved. In addition, the considerable cost savings mean VoCeM provides a quick return on investment.
VoCeM can be used for all forms of remote communications systems, including passenger and crew GSM and VoIP services on cargo and cruise ships, aircraft, and remote terrestrial sites, such as oil fields and mines.
