OKI Unveils CenterStage NX3200 Session Border Controller
By Raju Shanbhag TMCnet Contributor
The CenterStage NX Series from OKI (News - Alert) is a line of communications servers created for large-scale carriers to serve as a foundation for Next Generation Network (NGN) services. The excellent performance, capacity, and dependability of every product that wears the CenterStage NX badge provides the ability to meet the strict requirements of the NGN networks. These networks consist of the next-generation social infrastructure.
Recently, the company introduced an upgraded version of its CenterStage NX3200 Session Border Controller. According to the company, this new version provides the industry's best-performing broadband codec converter.
Apart from providing smooth service exchange between carriers especially when LTE (News - Alert) (Long Term Evolution) takes off, the product also provides improved functionality and low delays of 20 ms or less for high-volume concurrent communications, the company stated.
To offer features that cater to the requirements of telecommunications carriers, OKI plans to further expand its CenterStage Series lineup. The company already offers various transfer technologies for high-volume and high-quality data, audio, and video transmission, and also carrier-grade hardware and software development technologies.
“In response to these infrastructure needs, OKI has achieved additional improvements in the performance of existing audio codec conversion functions, developing an innovative blade that provides the various broadband codec conversion functions described above and incorporating these blades in the NX3200," says Hidetoshi Saigou, GM, Info-telecom Systems Division at OKI. "These improvements also cap transfer delays at 20 ms or less to reduce audio quality degradation caused by codec conversion at multiple locations.”
In 2010, the company introduced "CTstageLite," a small-scale alternative for the "CTstage 5i" call center system.
