, the German VoIP handset manufacturer today announced that their wideband enabling technology called KlarVOICE is now available in the North American market.
KlarVOICE, which can be adapted to all snom VoIP telephones, allows the capture of more than twice the spectrum of voice frequencies captured by standard phones for a high-fidelity VoIP experience. Key features of snom KlarVOICE powered handsets include full support for the G.722 codec and the doubling of the sample rate, providing an effective pass-band of 50 to 7,000 Hz as opposed to the 200-3300 Hz. The snom klarVOICE handset works with the codec G.722.2 which is able to shrink the bit rate of the voice channel down to 12.65 kbps.
snom's SIP-based phones are often used in Asterisk and other SIP-compatible phone systems.
Pricing and Availability
The snom klarVOICE handset, which can be adapted to any existing snom 3xx series VoIP phone (snom 300, 320, 360, 370) using snom's latest firmware release (Version7.1.33), is available for an MSRP of US$32.50.
