Motorola Computer Group extended its range of wireless transcoding
solutions with the launch of the ComStruct PTMC Wireless Transcoder,
designed to accelerate the OEM deployment of the latest voice processing
Based on industry standard hardware and software modules, Motorola's
solution aims to simplify the deployment of 3G wireless media gateways
and transcoders that can significantly increase channel capacity and voice
quality as well as add new features to non-standard enclosures that comprise
most 2G/2.5G wireless infrastructure. By allowing OEMs and operators to
keep much of their existing equipment while benefiting from the latest
technology, the ComStruct PTMC Wireless Transcoder helps operators
minimize their capital expenditure and average cost per user and therefore
Designed to deliver up to 300 channels of AMR and over 220 channels of
EVRC, the ComStruct PTMC Wireless Transcoder will help OEMs respond to
demand from operators for third generation (UMTS and CDMA) adaptive rate
vocoders, while reducing development and deployment costs and retaining
proven infrastructure such as redundancy and failover management systems.
It will also provide a software-upgradeable platform for the new Selectable
Mode Vocoder (SMV) which, according to the CDMA Development Group,
will enable subscribers to enjoy superior quality and service providers
to increase system capacity by up to 75% compared with current CDMA vocoders.
The PTMC Wireless Transcoder is expected to be available in Q2 2002 at
a cost of around $12 per port for OEM volumes. For more information and
