8 May 2002 -- EADS Multicoms, a European alternative operator has selected RAD Data Communications' Compressed Voice System (CVS) to maximise leased line traffic over satellite and SDH links.
Multicoms operates an SDH and satellite long distance telecommunications network, and has developed its own long-distance telephony solutions and services to interconnect with African, Asian, East European and Middle Eastern countries.
During the development of its network, Multicoms was aware of the need to reduce its infrastructure cost while preserving voice quality.
Multicoms decided to implement CVS to increase the capacity of its links connecting France to several foreign countries, either via satellite or SDH.
Multicoms' SS7/IP network successfully integrated more than 14 compressed E1 lines using RAD's technology, which according to Gilles Deveau, Multicoms CEO, "is a cost-effective solution that helps Multicoms to ensure its customers premium services.
"The expertise of Connect Data in the field of satellite transmission and voice compression was a key factor in offering the best solution to Multicoms," says Laurent Monnet, account manager at Connect Data, RAD's distributor that contracted the sale. "Because CVS can compress up to 360 voice calls on a single E1 that satellite carriers like EADS Multicoms can increase revenue."
CVS is a high-density voice/fax compression system designed for PTTs
and alternative carriers, enabling them to provide high quality, efficient and cost-effective voice/fax services by increasing the capacity of an E1 or T1 line by up to 12 times.
