Lindbergh calls fly with VOIPBOX
ApplianSys today announced that Lindbergh Schools in St Louis, Missouri has purchase VOIPBOX to guarantee VoIP quality in schools which have slower internet links sharing Voice and Data. They will use a VOIPBOX060 server on the main campus and VOIPBOX020 client units in the schools.
Lindbergh had already purchased multiple CACHEBOX units from ApplianSys to slash bandwidth costs and were very pleased with the results. Now, as they roll out VoIP services, they want to stop data transfer on the same line as VoIP impacting call quality.
VOIPBOX Product Manager Dave Gravell explains “because of the nature of voice data, VoIP traffic requires regular transmission of small data packets. These packets can frequently be delayed by other large data packets on the network which take more time to be transmitted over the link. While these packets are being transmitted, no VoIP traffic can be sent, introducing jitter to the call. By breaking up larger data packets into smaller pieces, VoIP traffic can be interspersed with the data stream.”
When Lindbergh Director of Technology Mariano Marin-Gomez discovered VOIPBOX, he decided on planning ahead just as he had with his CACHEBOX deployment. This would allow his users to avoid these problems by ensuring that VoIP data is transmitted without interruptions thus eliminating jitter.
