MONTREAL, June 17 /CNW Telbec/ - Talkdynamics Technologies Inc.
(www.talkdynamics.com), provider of IP-based intercom and conferencing
software solutions, has been awarded a contract from SESS GbR (Systems
Engineering Support Services - www.sess.de) to deploy Evoke, its VoIP
conferencing and intercom system to support voice communications at the
European Space Agency (ESA) for ISS (International Space Station) Operations.
Evoke will deliver secured and encrypted multi conference communication
to remote users around the world via the Internet Protocol (IP). Evoke will
integrate seamlessly with the existing mission conferencing system via the
Evoke SIP Gateway connected to a standard 4-wire analog voice interface.
This Evoke deployment consists of setting up a multi-channel and IP-based
voice communication link over the Internet, between, the Canadian Space Agency
located in Montreal, Canada (CSA), and the Columbus Control Centre (Col-CC),
located at the German Space Operations Center of the German Space Agency
(DLR), in Munich, Germany. The Evoke system is deployed to support voice
communications for the Microgravity Isolation System (MVIS) Project in ESA's
Columbus Fluid Science Laboratory (FSL) which is managed by the MARS Center
(Microgravity Advanced Research and Support) located in Naples, Italy. The
system will be used to coordinate, plan and communicate work between the
different group and participant of the project, located in control and support
centers around the globe.
Evoke provides proven and reliable packet-based audio protocol and
technology developed by Talkdynamics. The innovative and proprietary network
communication protocol enables very-high voice quality with wideband sampling
and helps overcome the performance variation of the Internet with its packet
loss recovery algorithm. Talkdynamics's patent pending low latency
multi-conferencing core provides Evoke with the highest VoIP conferencing
capabilities by providing each users with unlimited number of voice sessions
simultaneously, and in parallel.
"We are very proud and excited to deploy Evoke to support voice
communication for ISS Space Operations" says Stephane Menard, President and
CEO of Talkdynamics. "This is the logical continuity of the successful
deployment of the VoIP conferencing system at the Italian Control Center back
in 2005. We believe that utilizing the existing IP network to instantly
communicate with remote users makes for a much more scaleable, flexible and
cost-effective solution than traditional hardware and analog systems can
provide. Evoke can be deployed and functional in less than an hour, while
current voice hardware platforms require procurement, planning, shipping and
"This is a great addition to the ISS Columbus ground Segment" says Dave
McMahon, SESS GbR's Managing Director, "we are excited to provide the CSA with
a cost effective communication solution for their operations".
Talkdynamics is currently searching for partners, distributors or
integrators for reselling Evoke in other markets. Please contact us for more
