New standard on VoIP voice quality
Company Ooma announces the advent of HD Voice technology on the basis of its award- winning Ooma Telo system. Therefore, some benchmark of the VoIP achievements in matters of impeccable voice quality is established, further improving the calling experience for those expecting a superior business and home telephony performance experience.
It is the fact, that Ooma has established the new standards on voice quality with the introduction of ‘’Ooma Pure Voice’’ technologies in April 2010, providing excellent voice quality over substandard or overloaded Web connectivity. Currently, with the addition of Ooma HD Voice, Ooma Telo consumers can place phone calls with doubled fidelity of a standard phone line when reaching another Ooma Telo user. Since day of announcement, the HD Voice update will be automatically distributed to all customers with installed Ooma Telo. Ooma PureVoice HD Technology is built up with five key components:

Ooma HD Voice: being the first residential phone service to support high definition voice technology. In comparison with traditional phones, Ooma HD Voice doubles the audio frequencies emitted to work with saturated, absolutely natural sounding verbal communications between Ooma Telo clients. A dedicated Ooma Telo Handset or HD compatible telephone is needed to support Ooma HD Voice.

Extra elements of Ooma PureVoice HD that were previously announced consists of:

  • Enhanced voice compression: Ooma implements an enhanced voice compression algorithm that diminishes bandwidth consumption by 60 percent than the standard VoIP arrangements do and is more endurable on packet loss without degrading the streamline. This ensures more bandwidth for all other online actions and procedures and increases the prospects of voice traffic to be delivered undistorted by an ISP. 
  • Wire-speed QoS: Notwithstanding the fact, that Ooma consumes only a fraction of the bandwidth of standard VoIP technology, maintaining the voice quality requires that those package of information arrive on time. The Ooma Telo prioritizes voice packets without slowing down the rest of a customer’s network. This way, customers can enjoy crystal clear calls even when uploading video clips, for example.
  • Adaptive redundancy: Packet loss is the permanent threat of VoIP - it can cause voice to sound stuttered or garbled. The Ooma Telo track down the packet loss on Web connections and automatically sends redundant packets to back up the clarity of phone calls.
  • Encrypted calls: Ooma takes privacy seriously. The company use the same encryption technology to protect conversations that governments use to protect classified data. This makes Ooma much more secured than the traditional landline.
