The OBi can be used to receive and make free calls to any other OBi connected user; calls can also be made to a smart phone or even a land line. Built on a system on a chip platform, OBi110 is a dedicated, stand-alone device, with in-built OBiTALK, SIP, Plain Old Telephone Service “POTS” interfaces. It integrates the VoIP service, SIP trunking, analog telephony with social networking. The OBi110 is priced at $69.99 at the 888VoipStore.
Jan Fandrianto, president and CEO of Obihai said, "Having an OBi110 is like owning your own phone company. When the OBi110 is coupled with OBiTALK and other services, such as those from a VoIP service provider or a landline, people can communicate with their families, friends and colleagues with more convenience and less cost. OBiTALK is built on a social networking web-based platform which provides users a friendly interface to control the power and flexibility of the OBi products. The OBi110 empowers users to take control of their digital & analog communications life. Users have the power to bridge mobile, fixed line and Internet telephone services via the OBi110's on-board phone and landline connections as well as via the Internet to SIP services and the free OBiTALK network. Any person who uses a mobile or fixed line phone and a circuit or packet service, will see value in Obihai such that our OBi products and OBiTALK become a crucial 'add-on' to any communication service subscription."
OBi110 ensures high performance, high-quality voice conversations, and a reliable network, as a computer is not required to use the OBi110. Using the internet broadband connections, along with the VoIP, the VoIP service providers can now offer abundance of control as well as enhanced convenience, as the OBi110 is “always on”, so connectivity will be an issue of the past. The OBi110 can also utilize the internet and OBiTALK connectivity between OBi users to enable free calling between OBi endpoint devices and applications, the traditional landlines do not need to be used at all. It can be used effectively as a web and social networking tool.
