Finally, wide-band sound will benefit VoIP

Have you ever heard “ohh, VoIP, isn’t that bad sound quality?” Personally I’m quite tired of it and VoIP is now ready for the larger market!

Polycom 7000The good news is all the new products with extremely good sound! Polycom has released their Polycom 6000 and 7000 (BTW, why do the need so many digits in their product name…) Once you have started using these, you really don’t want to go back. These solutions will help accelerate the VoIP convergence.

Especially women should appreciate this, since the phone conversation will carry more of their voice. Not to get into any trouble, but it is strange that G729 codec was optimized for the male voice, when thinking of who has the longest phone calls.
