It delivers superior voice quality and uses various codecs including G.711u, G.711a, Speex, iLBC, GSM, etc.
SIP softphone implementations based on the is-phone Java SDK are PBX independent and connect to all major IP PBXs from suppliers like 3Com, Avaya, Cisco, Nortel, Siemens and VocalTec as well as Asterisk (Digium, Fonality, Astimax etc.) and SIP Express Router. By using a SIP provider account, these softphones can run without any internal IP PBX infrastructure.
