Kyocera Licenses SPIRIT's Speech Enhancement Module for PHS Stations

3/16/2005 - SPIRIT (, the leading provider of embedded software products for the telecom industry, announces that Kyocera licensed SPIRIT's Speech Enhancement Module to improve voice quality in its PHS base stations.

Processing thousands of calls from different environments, conventional PHS base stations can't ensure PSTN speech quality in case of heavily distorted incoming calls. There are some cases where it's impossible to remove annoying echo and noise effects at the near side. The solution is to install Speech Enhancement Module at the base station processing the calls, thus improving the quality of incoming voice after the fact, ensuring rich speech quality comparable to wireline service. That's why Kyocera selected SPIRIT as an expert in voice processing field.

To improve speech quality of incoming calls regardless where the calls came from SPIRIT delivered its Speech Enhancement Module including best-of-the-class G.726 and G.168-200 LEC and provided technical support with product integration. Based on its extensive experience and highly professional team, SPIRIT provided Kyocera with the best on the market software for speech quality enhancement, ensuring better-than-PSTN voice quality and making each word easy to be heard and understood no matter what environment the call was originating from.

"The combination of high quality voice communications and, high-speed data provided at economical rates has made PHS extremely popular, and the number of people using PHS around the world is now approaching 20 million." - says Andrew Sviridenko, chairman of SPIRIT. "SPIRIT software helped Kyocera to meet customer's expectations in the best way and to ensure top-notch speech quality in any case regardless the incoming call quality".
