Wholesale VoIP Company VoX Unveils Mobile VoIP App
VoX Communications (News - Alert), a leading wholesale VoIP provider and wholly owned subsidiary of Pervasip Corp., introduced to the market this week its mobile VoIP App for use on all Android (News - Alert) mobile phones.
Up until now, VoX has depended on other companies such as fring and Nimbuzz to deliver its mobile VoIP application to an Android device. With the latest news, however, consumers can now install a VoX app directly on an Android tablet or smartphone in an easy download. And, according to officials, the wholesale VoIP company is working to automate this download so that it can be purchased anywhere in the world from mobile VoIP app websites.
“We are very excited about being able to deliver a mobile VoIP app via Google's (News - Alert) incredibly popular Android Market,” Pervasip's Chief Information Officer Mark Richards said. “We believe that this venue will give our VoIP services unprecedented exposure, as this app will be available to over 50 million Android smartphones in the U.S. alone."
For example, with one touch of a finger VoX can become the phone’s primary dialer so users do not have to deal with signing in every time, which Skype App makes you do, Richards said.
VoX’s app also allows users to set it to automatically register with VoX when Wi-Fi is turned on, or keep it registered for 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi. Moreover, it can be set up to only register when a call is made, or all the time, for people that want to maximize battery life and not keep apps running. By the end of the year, VoX hopes to add video calling to the product and to enable video calling between an Android phone and an Ojo Vision video phone.
“As a nimble development technology company, we intend to produce a tablet video app that brings a product superior to Facetime to the Android Market,” Richards said.
The app will be released to the Android Market within 30 days, according to the company.
In other industry news, nationwide wholesale VoIP provider Alcazar Networks announced that it has expanded its dialer termination footprint to cover 100 percent of Canada which includes over 26,400 routes. These Canada routes are in addition to the wholesale VoIP company’s full US48 dialer termination deck which currently has over 140,800 routes.
"We've been working on expanding our dialer termination footprint for the past few months, and I'm happy to say it's finally here!,” John Chisca, vice president of Alcazar Networks, told TMCnet. "The demand for US48 and Canada dialer traffic has been overwhelming. Making Canada available for our dialer termination customers have allowed them to not only save but to use one company, rather than having a second termination carrier providing their routes."
