GIPS and Infineon
Global IP Sound has announced an agreement with Infineon to port its iLBC codec to Infineon chips. Back in August, iLBC, which is a freeware project, was included as a mandatory part of the CableLabs Packet Cable 1.1 Audio/Video codec spec, and iLBC is also to be found in Xten softphones as well as in Asterisk. My chip guru tells me Siemens is Infineon's largest customer, but Nokia is also a significant one. It's going to be interesting to see where this ends up being deployed.
