Leading telecom systems integrator firm, IP-Tribe has selected Radisys’ MediaEngine to deliver next-generation transcoding solutions to its mobile operator customers in Southeast Asia. Radisys’ MediaEngine is being deployed and integrated by IP-Tribe into a leading Southeast Asian mobile operator’s network to support transcoding for rich communication services (RCS) and other next-generation services.
The Radisys MediaEngine adjunct transcoding solution enables mobile operators to more flexibly and cost-effectively support HD audio and conversational video services using the latest advanced codecs and to prepare for the virtualization of their session border controllers (SBCs).
According to Radisys, traditionally, transcoding has been integrated in media gateways and session border controllers. However, the transcoding requirements of advanced HD audio and video codecs are rapidly exceeding the media processing capabilities and scalability available on legacy equipment. The increasing deployment of advanced codecs used in new services offerings such as VoLTE, VoWiFi and WebRTC requires solutions that provide interoperability between contemporary and legacy endpoints and handsets, said Radisys.
