i2Telecom Releases VoiceStick VoIP Access Device


Now you can take your VoIP enabler wherever you go inside that tiny denim pocket thanks to i2Telecom International, Inc. The company announced today that it developed a device called VoiceStick´┐Ża  plug-and-play, portable key chain-sized device that inserts directly into the USB port of almost any desktop or notebook computer, including some PDAs, enabling users to instantly place VoIP-based phone calls with the use of an included headset.


Once the VoiceStick is installed in the USB port, a dial pad display enables the user to call any telephone in the world directly from the computer, using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology, at a fraction of normal long-distance rates.


"The VoiceStick is the easiest and most cost-effective VoIP solution for college students, business travelers, or anyone who makes long-distance calls from multiple locations. Given the explosive growth of WiFi and broadband wireless, including 'Hot Spots,' the VoiceStick will allow users to conveniently make VoIP calls from such locations as cafes, hotels, airport terminals, college campuses, municipal parks, recreational vehicles and their own back yards, ´┐Ż said Paul Arena, chief executive officer of i2Telecom International, Inc.


The company plans to start selling the device through marketing partnerships and retail locations by early next year. i2Telecom will market VoiceStick to channel partners, telecoms, cable operators and ISPs. 


i2Telecom currently offers the device through its Virtual VoIP Network Enabler (VVNE) and Virtual VoIP Network Operator (VVNO) programs. The VVNE program enables agents and reseller partners to sell the VoiceStick, along with VoIP services, through i2Telecom's infrastructure, allowing for easy market entry with minimal time and capital expenses. The VVNO program allows qualified operators and wholesalers to sell and activate customized VoiceStick product offerings and rate plans that are complemented by their own back office functionality.


The company offers telecommunications services based on VoIP technology with operations based in Atlanta, GA; Boca Raton, FL; Redwood City, CA; and China.
