A NEXT GENERATION BROADBAND VOIP CPE

Interoperability and Supports PacketCable, MGCP and SIP Standards
Singapore and San Jose, CA – May 20, 2002 – InnoMedia™, a leading supplier of Internet and broadband access IP telephony solutions, today announced the launch of MTA 3308 IP Phone, the latest addition to the MTA 3000 Series of next generation Multimedia Terminal Adapters (MTAs). The product is targeted at broadband service providers who are looking to deliver new revenue-generating telephony services to their customers.
The MTA 3308 IP Phone has the look and feel of a regular telephone with the flexible provisioning, configuration management, and enhanced calling features only possible through IP telephony. InnoMedia’s MTA 3308 IP Phone offers system interoperability through an end-to-end system approach, providing a low-risk, ready-to-deploy IP telephony solution for service providers in the broadband access markets. It can be used in a multitude of system configurations including GR303/V5.2 gateways, PacketCable Call Agents/Softswitches, or SIP-based Softswitches. It supports industry standard protocols including PacketCable NCS 1.0, MGCP 1.0 and SIP 2.0.
“In addition to offering the most interoperable MTAs available, we also have the broadest portfolio of broadband VoIP CPE devices on the market today. Our MTA 3000 Series offers broadband service providers tremendous flexibility and choice in offering their subscribers standalone or embedded MTAs, and now an IP Phone,” said Dr. Nan-Sheng Lin, president and co-founder of InnoMedia. “This continues to further strengthen InnoMedia’s position as the best partner for broadband service providers, MSO’s and solution partners looking to incorporate the value of voice in their service and product offerings.”
To provide PSTN-like voice quality the MTA 3308 IP Phone utilizes: advanced voice compression codecs, including G.728, G.729E, G.711, and G.723.1; line echo cancellation (G.168); voice activity detection; and comfort noise generation. It also supports Quality of Service (QoS) standards, including QoS IEEE 802.1 p/Q and TOS tagging, and has a built-in priority switch that prioritizes voice packets, thus reducing voice packet drop and minimizing voice latency. Additionally, it offers easy customer installation and flexible management to reduce the service provider’s operation risk by supporting HTTP, SNMP, TFTP, FTP and Telnet for remote provisioning, software upgrading and configuring, monitoring and testing. It also automatically checks for upgrades and downloads the latest configurations.
The MTA 3308 IP Phone looks similar to a regular desktop telephone, featuring an 80-character (4×20) dot matrix LCD complete with menu navigation keys, a speakerphone, 50-number phonebook, 10 memory speed-dial keys, and a message-waiting indicator. It comes with two built-in Ethernet 10/100 Base-T RJ-45 ports enabling users to share a WAN connection with a desktop PC. Additional phone features include, date and time display, call timer, caller ID, call logging, last number redialing, mute and flash. CLASS features are also supported via network-based Call Agents or GR303/V5.2 gateways, offering broadband service providers the opportunity to deliver value-added revenue services to their customers.
