LG U+ signs licensing agreement with SPIRIT DSP for mobile VoIP

SPIRIT DSP, a voice and video over IP engines provider, announced that
LG U+, South Korean’s mobile and telecom service provider, has licensed
SPIRIT’s TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine Mobile to power HD-quality VoIP and
video-calling on mobile devices.  

South Korea’s IP Communications market is backed by support from the
government. A dedicated area zone for VoIP telephone numbers was introduced
several years ago, followed by a number portability option that made it
possible for people to move to VoIP-calling without changing their phone

The Korea Communications Commission (KCC) recently reported a wide
mobile VoIP adoption in the country thanks to wireless broadband
infrastructure, new smartphones from Korean handset OEM giants and smartphone
adoption rates.

In 18 months, the number of smartphone subscribers in South Korea has
exploded more than ten-fold to top 10 million stimulating local carriers to
deploy their own mobile VVoIP services to retain their customers from migrating
to Skype and Google mobile voice and video services.

“SPIRIT DSP has a strong presence in
Asia Pacific market and S. Korea.  LG U+ has come to rely on SPIRIT’s
proven and highly optimized, carrier-grade engine technology to handle voice
and video over IP processing,” said Alex Kravchenko, VP Sales of

TeamSpirit Engine is an SDK for real-time IP calling/conferencing

wideband talk mode.

The voice engine includes standard voice codecs and a patent-free
wideband error-resilient scalable SPIRIT IP-MRTM voice codec (IETF RFC

is able to adapt streams to each peer’s network and PC environments without heavy
transcoding and it includes a multi-component stream protection module that
compensates for network jitter and packet loss.
