One Voice Also VoIPs

BY JOHANNE TORRES


Yet another technology company jumps in the VoIP calling service pool this summer� San Diego, California-based One Voice Technologies, Inc. (quote), developer of voice solutions for the telecom and interactive multimedia markets just announced that it launched a VoIP-based PC-to-Phone calling service integrated with Windows XP Media Center Edition. 


Announcements like these seem to overcrowd my inbox every day. So, I decided to look for whatever was closest to a Voice over IP (VoIP) (define - news - alert - tutorial) provider list online. In my quest, I found one that listed over 280 VoIP providers in the U.S. alone. My results left me wondering what these companies will do in order to make their services stand out from all of this competition in such oversaturated market.

For One Voice�s service, the difference may be its integration with Windows XP Media Center Edition, along with its MobileVoice feature�a voice recognition-based service that works from any cell phone and wireless service provider and includes: voice dialing, group conference calling, reading and sending e-mail and voice-to-text SMS messaging. 

One Voice�s new PC-to-Phone calling service is built using industry standard Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), Microsoft's Live Communication Server (LCS) technology, IBM xSeries servers and AT&T T1 Internet and PSTN connectivity. The new VoIP service will be living on the MobileVoice Hosted services Platform, located at the San Diego-based AT&T (news - alert - quote) Data Center facility.

The monthly fee for One Voice�s PC-to-Phone calling service seems relatively low when compared to many other similar VoIP calling plans. Callers will be able to use 500 minutes anytime of the day or night for $14.95 a month. These minutes can be used for calls throughout the US and Canada. Overage minutes are billed at 4.9 cents each. The provider allows users to try the service free for a month, for up to 500 minutes, without obligation to keep the service.

As an introductory offer, One Voice is also offering subscribers a package which includes the above monthly PC-to-Phone calling service plus One Voice's MobileVoice service.
