World's First ITU-T G729A Compliant Voice Codec Hardware Accelerator by Noesis Technologies

PATRAS, Greece, December 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Noesis Technologies announced today the immediate availability of its ITU-T G.729A compliant voice codec IP Core. The growth in wireless communication systems, cellular mobile radio and VoIP technology has created the imperative need for bandwidth efficient, high speed quality voice coding algorithms. The ITU-T G.729A CS-ACELP is a high speech quality, low-bit rate (8kbps) codec that has been proposed to meet the voice compression requirements of a modern communication system.

However the real time SW implementation of a multi-channel ITU-T G.729A compliant voice codec in conventional DSP processors is prohibitive due to the intensive amount of signal processing power required by the algorithm. To overcome this limitation Noesis Technologies has developed a revolutionized, highly efficient hybrid architecture that implements real time multi-channel G729A voice coding and exhibits the best performance-silicon area ratio available in the industry. The ntG729 IP Core can be used as a coprocessor to any processor type and can save significant computing resources for the main processor by efficiently executing the computationally intensive speech coding G729A algorithmic operations.

Performance Metrics

The ntG729 hardware accelerator when compared with a software implementation of ITU-T G.729A algorithm on high-end processors, presents impressive competitive advantages:

► Outperforms by a factor of two by supporting twice as many voice channels.

► It requires only half the gate count thus increasing power efficiency and reducing costs.

► It presents an overall performance/silicon area ratio four times better than any high-end processor of the market.

Applications

Noesis Technologies ntG729 IP Core can be integrated in a variety of end-products including access devices, audio/video conferencing equipment, call center equipment, IP phones, IP/PBXs, VoIP gateways, System on Chip (SoC) VoIP processors. The core can be delivered as RTL source code, FPGA or ASIC (GDSII) netlist, under an End-User License Agreement.

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
