imgMontbonnot, France (April 23, 2014)—Digigram has announced the release of its new Codec Fleet Manager, enabling structured management of all deployed audio-over-IP (AoIP) contribution codecs.

The web-based application can be hosted privately on any virtual machine or operated as SaaS in the cloud. Accessible from anywhere through the web browser of internet-connected devices such as PCs, tablets and smartphones, the application automatically synchronizes phone books, connection profiles, and "favorite" groups of codecs to simplify deployment and day-to-day operation of the full codec fleet.

Digigram's Codec Fleet Manager supports phone book creation and management much like the "contacts" interface on a smartphone, tablet, or computer. While this element of the Codec Fleet Manager describes all the characteristics of the contacts included in a fleet of codecs, the application also provides control over connection profile details, favorites, and associated filters.

The new application allows authorized users to preconfigure and edit contact settings for the entire codec fleet and then apply those settings across the whole fleet at once. Read/write access is managed by the administrator. As a consequence, at the codec level, the user interface mimics simple mobile phone operation, regardless of the complexity of underlying IP protocols, profiles, N/ACIP signaling modes, and quality of the supporting connection.

The release of the Codec Fleet Manager is the first step in Digigram's larger rollout of cloud-based AoIP solutions.
