have successfully launched a user-friendly mobile calling service that offers a simple, affordable and high quality digital voice solution to overseas calling.
The new service, called "Packet8 MobileTalk" , is based on MobileMax Residential Edition software for carriers and service providers. MobileMax’s solution utilizes a downloadable software application that can reside on any smart phone to automatically route international calls from the mobile phone through the Packet8 digital VoIP network. This will enable cell phone users to significantly reduce their international phone bills while maintaining high international voice quality and the ability to enjoy the convenience and flexibility of mobile calling.
Unlike calling card, callback and other reduced-rate international phone services, which require the user to dial numerous key strokes in addition to their destination number or make their calls through cumbersome software applications, Packet8 MobileTalk users can dial calls directly and comfortably from a mobile handset, contact list or speed dial directory with no additional keystrokes -- a significant advantage, for example, when placing a call while driving. Once a destination number is dialed or selected, the Packet8 MobileTalk software application identifies the international prefix being called and redirects the call to a local Packet8 network access.
In addition, with Packet8 MobileTalk, all calls are carried to the Packet8 network over the subscriber's existing cellular voice phone service and do not require access to an expensive monthly data plan or WiFi access point. Packet8 MobileTalk calls offer unparalleled voice quality as the calls are routed over the award-winning, patent-protected Packet8 digital phone VoIP network.
MobileMax will be presenting its solutions at the Internet Telephony Conference and Expo, booth 833, January 23rd to 25th at the Miami Beach Convention Center or watch the demo here
