WiFiMobile's oneFone VoIP Client Offers Complete Freedom

By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributing Editor

WiFiMobile, a leading player in the mobile VoIP space, has demonstrated the benefits of using one’s own VoIP client instead of depending on network operators that provide handsets pre-loaded with the manufacturer’s VoIP client.

WiFiMobile’s oneFone is a self-designed and owned VoIP client. It is a stand alone application that delivers complete VoIP functionality even when network operators remove the standard client.

CEO Gerry O’Prey was quoted in the report saying, “Certain Network Operators are currently taking a stance against mobile VoIP as they have a right to do so. We have taken the decision to actually develop a solution without relying on other factors. Unlike other mobile VoIP service providers we own all the intellectual property rights to our software.”

Earlier this April, Vodafone (News - Alert) and Orange in the UK had given instructions to a leading handset manufacturer to disable the standard Internet Telephony client from a top-end model. Several mobile VoIP operators had criticized this move since their software relies completely on the standard VoIP client software stack that is installed in the handsets. Their services won’t function without the software.

In June this year, the OMTP (Open Mobile Terminal Platform) had declared that operators have the right to remove or lock VoIP applications on subsidized handsets till the end of the minimum contract period. Once the contract period ends, users can request for a restoration of VoIP functionality. This was another major cause of concern for VoIP providers.

WiFiMobile’s US based developers are constantly working to update the features and benefits of their VoIP client. The solution offers complete support to enable users to see who is online. Call conferencing and VCC (Voice Call Continuity) are expected to be added to the feature list soon. Once it is done, seamless handover between WiFi and GSM will be possible.

The software’s features are very useful for the enterprise market, where select Nokia (News - Alert) devices are now pure extensions of the corporate IP PBX system.
