with up to 60% more efficiency than previous platforms. ATCi’s packaged
solution coupled with interlaced RF to digital IP optimizer technology
will enable GSM operators to reduce their backhaul bandwidth
requirements through proven network optimization and voice compression
methods. The solution will allow for comprehensive bandwidth
optimization techniques to eliminate unnecessary data. It will also
suppress silence, compress voice on interfaces that require it, and
packetize traffic for transport over the most cost-effective
infrastructure. The result is a dramatic reduction in bandwidth
requirements across all cellular links without experiencing any
degradation in voice quality or network reliability. Less bandwidth
utilization means lower operating expenses (OpEx) which is critical to
an operator’s financial performance.

Hong Kong," said ATCi’s CEO, Gary Hatch. "We believe that the Asia
region has the most dynamic growth opportunity for voice video and data
gateway applications," Hatch added.
