19 Sep ITEXPO West 2011
Just returned from ITEXPO. It was in blazing-hot Austin, TX, which is a very cool town. And it was very cool for Commetrex and NetGen Communications, our sister company, which is producing and marketing Smart ATA, which we announced at the show. It also turned out to be way cool for the ITSPs who stopped at our booth when they learned about Smart ATA, and what it could do for their success with FoIP.
Smart ATA truly redefines the state of the art in ATAs. If you know Commetrex, you know we wouldn’t bother to develop and market just another ATA, but one that solves big problems for users of FoIP…and it does. Smart ATA is a full-function voice-fax ATA, but in FoIP, it does what no other ATA does: it solves the late-T.38 re-Invite problem, and it solves the G.711 clock-sync problem. This means an improvement of transaction success rate of 5-10%. And, oh yes, it is the industry’s first and only ATA with T.38 version 3 and V.34.
ITSPs that support FoIP know how problematic it is. One thing we learned at the show, it doesn’t matter which ATA they use, they have problems that seemed to bring several that stopped at our booth nearly to tears. Once they learned what we had accomplished, those tears turned to tears of joy. Every ITSP was ready for a trial.
So, the response to Smart ATA was overwhelming.
