Apico, an Irish-based startup that leverages its own telecom platform to offer voice communication and messaging services, is rolling out cloud infrastructure in Frankfurt to process and route voice calls. The new server location will provide sterling connection quality for the company’s European clients.
Apico's new communications node enables Apico-powered apps from all over Europe to provide their users with stable voice connection. ”The closer the communications node is to the app’s server, the better the connection quality will be thanks to faster data sharing,” - Apico CEO says.
Key parameters driving VoIP call quality for users, including connection speed, lag, jitter, and packet loss, are directly affected by server location. Tests, in fact, have shown that lag clocked at more than 150 ms is considered indicative of a poor connection. With that in mind, Apico settled on locating its new node in Frankfurt, where the central European infrastructure secures a uniform and quality connection for clients scattered across the continent.
Apico is currently preparing to release API access to its global telecom infrastructure, allowing developers to easily embed voice calls and messaging into their web and mobile apps. The company will use the new infrastructure in Frankfurt to support fast and stable interaction between the platform and the apps built on it around Europe.
