Twillio LogoStandard Voice 8k Hz codecs

Twilio’s standard voice codecs don’t support the media streaming features needed for low-latency AI. Users must install middleware to upcycle the bitrate for media to be processed, resulting in poor quality and increased latency.

Telnyx logoHD Voice 16k Hz codecs

Telnyx HD Voice offers wideband codecs like G.722 to the PSTN that support 16k Hz. No middleware is needed: our wideband codecs already support the audio quality needed for seamless media streaming needed for AI.
