Say Goodbye To Choppy Video And Hello To Real-Time

February 17, 2005

By Suzanne Deffree

Jerky video and high prices associated with videophones will become a thing of the past, as Texas Instruments Inc. hopes to bring real-time, high-quality consumer videophones to the home.

The Dallas-based company has partnered with Wintech Digital Systems Technology Corp. to release the Videophone Development Platform (VDP), what the duo describes as a complete development platform for designing point-to-point IP-based videophone systems.

TI is banking on the breakdown of traditional barriers to adoption of videophones, such as choppy video quality and high unit cost. Those will be overcome, according to the company and its partner, with the recent introduction of new video codecs that require half the bandwidth for video transfers, the continuing penetration of IP broadband connectivity and the availability of single-chip encode and decode implementation.

Adding to the push are telecos looking for another revenue stream, says TI's Pradeep Bardia, business development manager for the company's video group.

 Vonage Shows Off Wi-Fi Phone At 3GSM Mobile Show

What To See At 3GSM Mobile Show

February 14, 2005

By Joia Shillingford

Among the more unusual technologies on display at this week's big mobile show in Cannes will be a mobile phone that can be used as a computer mouse.

Attendance at the show, the biggest event in the industry, is expected to be a third higher than last year.
The annual show, starting on Monday, has got so big it is relocating to Barcelona next year because there is not enough space for exhibitors.

For the 38,000 visitors, even finding somewhere to sleep in the southern French town can be difficult.

Many visitors commute by train from nearby villages - or Monaco.

"The high turnout shows that even the network equipment companies are recovering after being hit very heavily in the downturn," says Mark Newman, chief research officer at Informa, the UK-listed company that runs the 3GSM World Congress.

    Nearly everyone is familiar with the terms "Voice Over IP" and "Wireless Networking" these days, but what's all the fuss about? What can wireless networking do for me? And how does VOIP work, anyway? To answer those questions, I tested the Linksys WRT54GP2, which combines an 802.11g wireless router with a built-in two-port VoIP Analog Terminal Adapter (ATA). The version I tested came bundled Vonage's VoIP service, but Linksys makes the same hardware available under similar part numbers for other VoIP service partners.

    The GP2 package comes with the router itself, a power adapter, a network patch cable, an installation CD, and various literature. I was glad to see an actual paperback user's manual in the package too, even though a PDF version of it is on the CD. Too many electronics manufacturers try to save themselves a nickel by leaving the paperback version out, which always makes me wonder what other corners were cut. It's good to see Linksys included it here.

     VoIP Is Calling

    VoIP Is Calling

    February 14, 2005

    By Carolyn Shapiro

    Remember the rotary telephone?

    In a few decades, the old land-line phone system could grow just as obsolete. Future generations will wonder at the days when people made calls without the Internet.

    The proliferation of high-speed Internet service has spurred the latest telecommunications phenomenon: voice over Internet protocol, or VoIP. It allows users to abandon copper wires and hook their phones to their computers to call through the Internet.

    The prices for VoIP rival those of many land-line phone packages, and price is pivotal for spurring interest among residential consumers, according to Forrester Research Inc.

    The tech research company’s survey last month found that 4 percent of households use VoIP service and only 36 percent are at least somewhat interested in it. But the Telecommunications Industry Association, a trade group, predicted this month that VoIP access lines will reach almost 10 million this year and 26 million in 2008.
    “If you believe the hype the industry is sending out, it’s going to be huge,” said John Breyault, research associate for the Telecommunications Research & Action Center, a nonprofit consumer advocacy group based in Washington. “They basically say this is going to replace your regular phone.”

     The Science Behind VoIP

    Vonage In Print News

    The Science Behind Web Telephony

    February 12, 2005

    By Richard Wray

    The reason why internet telephony, or VoIP, is cheaper than making a normal phone call stems from its use of the world wide web, writes.

    A traditional phone call relies upon an end-to-end connection being made between two phones, the longer the "line" is kept open the more expensive the call gets.

    A call made over the internet, in contrast, does not create any such con nection that can be measured or charged. VoIP technology takes one caller's voice, cuts it up into small parcels of digital data and sends them on to the internet, just like an email or web page.

    Still considering what to buy your loved one this Valentines Day? Worried that chocolates may interfere with a complex diet structure or flowers might induce a serious bout of hayfever? Well fret no further. Apparently, according to VoIP provider Vonage, nothing says love like a personalized phone number. For a mere $4.99 a month, your long-distance lover can have a virtual London phone number, for example, allowing him or her to call without having to foot huge international charges.

    Taking A Close Look At Telecom

    February 9, 2005

    By Staff

    Telcommunications revenues in the US will grow considerably over the coming years, helped along by growing adoption of certain telecom technologies like VoIP and DSL, reports the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA).

    According to the TIA, telecom spending in the US grew by 7.9% last year to total over $784 billion. The TIA projects US telecom spending will grow by a compound annual growth rate of 9.5% between 2005 and 2008, surpassing $1.1 trillion by the end of 2008. Increased VoIP and DSL adoption are among the developments expected to help push growth in the telecom sector over the coming years.

    Vonage's Smooth Operator

    February 8, 2005

    By Om Malik

    Before most of his friends were out of college, Jeffrey Citron earned his first $1 million as a trader. At 25, he launched Island ECN, an electronic trading system for brokers that later sold for $500 million. By his 27th birthday, he’d turned his fledgling stock brokerage, Datek into the nation’s fourth-largest. Ameritrade snapped it up in 2003 for $1.3 billion.

    Now 34, Citron-whose personal fortune is estimated at more than $340 million-looks poised to strike it rich yet again. In 2001 he was among the first to dive into the uncharted waters of the voice-over-Internet phone business, putting up $70 million of his own money. Today his New Jersey-based company, Vonage, sits atop a sizzling $3 billion-per-year market.

    Being Digital Is Being Virtual

    February 7, 2005

    By Hans-Peter Brondmo

    I have an confession to make. I no longer have an office. Oh, I have a job. Just no office.

    Have you been to an urban café lately? It's not uncommon for a third of the occupants to be sitting in front of their laptops, completely engrossed, day and night. Ever wonder what they're doing? They're being virtual. We all know nobody knows you're a "dog" on the Internet. What's equally important is nobody knows where that "dog" is.

    In 1995, Nicholas Negroponte, founder of the MIT Media Lab, published "Being Digital," a manifesto of musings and predictions for the digital age. Most of Negroponte's predictions weren't bad. His main thesis is information moving from the realm of atoms (physical matter) to that of bits (the digital ether) has profound implications on how people work and play.

    Negroponte foresaw the Internet would be more about individuals pulling the information they want and less about centralized broadcasting. He recognized the digital world's social networking potential. He assumed broadband access in homes would become ubiquitous. And, I would contend, he predicted the PVR, popularized by TiVo and its derivatives, and the effect it would have on TV as we know it.
