D2 Technologies Inc. announced that its vPort VoIP software powers the new Accton Technology VG2211i wireless personal gateway, which is touted to be the first truly portable Wi-Fi router, with an integrated VoIP Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA).

According to the press release, Accton's gateway is the first of its kind to be based on softDSP VoIP technology. The vPort software runs on a MIPS4Kc-based Wi-Fi router SoC, which is the functional heart of the Accton gateway.

Traditional VoIP gateways incorporate a DSP chip or core for voice processing functions; however, D2's vPort softDSP implementations enable the voice functions to run on a MIPS or ARM RISC processor, removing the need to add a DSP chip or core when VoIP functionality must be added to a device.

D2 added that the vPort is a complete VoIP software solution, which integrates voice processing (G.168 echo cancellation, G.729AB voice compression, T.38 fax relay and tone detection/generation, etc.) with voice signaling (e.g. SIP), packetizing, jitter smoothing, networking and telephony drivers.

"The Accton Portable Gateway is an ideal device for VoIP service providers to offer to their customers, with the added benefit of allowing the consumer to either set up a home wireless network, or use the device as a client in an existing Wi-Fi network," said D2 President David Wong. "Furthermore, you can take this gateway to a hotel room, plug it into the broadband internet connection to set up a Wi-Fi network and make or receive VoIP calls in your room, bringing a new meaning to phone number portability."

Ken Lu, senior vice president and co-founder of Accton, commented, "D2's vPort software was the best way for us to include VoIP capability in our wireless personal gateway. It allowed us to include VoIP functionality without the need to add a DSP chip to the design, enabling us to deliver a highly portable gateway in a 24.7-by-107.5-by-78.7mm package."
