|MyCloud Contact Center Platform Targets Small to Medium Businesses|
Reinvent Telecom has launched MyCloud Contact Center, a private-label contact center as a service (CCaaS) platform designed and priced for small to medium business (SMB) customers.
"Historically, contact center technologies have targeted large and midmarket enterprises, but what we've found recently is SMBs have a true need for multichannel contact center solutions to help them improve their customer experience," said David Ansehl, Director of Wholesale Channel at Reinvent Telecom. "MyCloud Contact Center meets the sweet spot between capabilities and cost that will allow our resellers partners to bring large company contact center capabilities to SMB customers at a reasonable cost."
|GL's Advanced Analysis Tool Optimizes Voice Quality Testing|
GL Communications' Voice Analysis Tool (VAT™) can analyze audio content within Narrowband (NB), Wideband (WB), and Super Wideband (SWB) PCM audio files while generating a variety of audio metrics including Frequency Bandwidth, Speech and Noise Levels, Speech Activity, RMS Power, Audio Dropout and Delay measurements.
"The GL VAT™ application can produce various audio metrics, such as Round Trip and One Way Delay measurements, Audio Dropout analysis, Double-Talk measurements, and Voice Quality analysis (when coupled with the GL Voice Quality Testing (VQT) POLQA solution ). Furthermore, the GL VAT™ supports Speech to Text analysis with pass/fail when linked with the GL Speech to Text Analysis solution," said Robert Bichefsky, Director of Engineering at GL Communications Inc.
|World's First Truly Copper-Free Data and Power Link Transforms Traditional Antenna Technology|
Precise timing synchronization for high-performance networks is now improved as HUBER+SUHNER launches enhancements to the world's first truly copper-free fiber powered link.
The HUBER+SUHNER Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and Power-over-Fiber solution brings pre-, during, and post installation benefits to telecommunications providers working in the 5G and data center space. Using fiber optics as a means of power for the antenna brings cost and timing savings during installation and operation, as no power distribution is needed on a building's roof.
"Using the GNSS signal from satellites enables the acquisition of precise and accessible timing information from atomic clocks, while combining this with the distribution over fiber, lower attenuation over longer distances is enabled," says Product manager Dominik Tibolla at HUBER +SUHNER.
|New Open Cloud Automation Software Accelerates Deployment of Edge Devices|
