Not only does the development of VoIP and WiFi combined apps and devices seem to have become a reality, but advancements in such technologies seem to be going full-speed. Taking the plunge comes Net2Phone, announcing that it has launched the first product in its suite of wireless VoIP solutions for service providers globally.
This new development seems to be a very promising offering beneficial for service providers wanting to provide worldwide residential and corporate users with wireless VoIP applications. Net2Phone’s VoiceLine XJ100 WiFi Handset works with the company’s broadband telephony service, VoiceLine. The new device will allow service providers to offer SIP-based hosted wireless telephony services to their customers as an enhancement to their existing product set.
"By removing the tether from wireline services, we have extended the availability of VoIP to customers who have access to wireless broadband," said Stephen Greenberg, chief executive officer of Net2Phone. "By enabling service providers with a WiFi VoIP solution that builds upon our existing broadband telephony solutions, we have created one more method to enhance their service offering to their customers."
Net2Phone’s new handset, along with the VoiceLine service allows corporate, residential and public WiFi VoIP users to place inbound and outbound calls and also choose from a U.S. local, U.S. toll-free or U.K. toll-free telephone number, regardless of residency. In addition, the XJ100 supports standard Internet telephony features such as enhanced voicemail, caller ID and call forwarding.
The company says it expects developments of other future products in its WiFi suite to include a softphone client that enables PDAs, desktop and laptop computers with WiFi VoIP service.
