SPIRIT DSP Boosts HD VoIP and Video in South Korea

SpiritDSP_logo.jpgLG U+ has licensed SPIRIT's TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine Mobile to power HD-quality VoIP and video-calling on mobile devices.

South Korea has one of the world's most vibrant IP Communications markets in the world backed by strong support from the government. A dedicated area zone for VoIP telephone numbers was introduced several years ago, followed by a number portability options that made it possible for people to move to VoIP-calling without changing their phone number. A wide mobile VoIP adoption thanks to a great wireless broadband infrastructure, new smartphones from Korean handset OEM giants and high smartphone adoption rates were recently reported by the Korea Communications Commission. In just 18 months, the number of smartphone subscribers in South Korea has exploded more than ten-fold to top 10 million (or around a fifth of the population) stimulating local carriers to deploy their own mobile VVoIP services to retain their customers from migrating to Skype and Google mobile voice and video services.

Mobile VoIP Users to Reach 640m by 2016

juniper_research_logo.pngMobile VoIP specialists are expected to favour alliances with social media, gaming and software partners over partnerships with mobile network operators in coming years, as social media becomes ever more mainstream, finds Juniper Research.

Juniper Research anticipates that the role of voice within the broader communications market will change, and it will become increasingly available as an extension to other applications. Companies such as Vivox are pioneering such services in the gaming industry, and Skype's acquisition by Microsoft and several Facebook alliances with VoIP providers will accelerate this trend, finds the report 'Mobile Voice & Video Calling: Strategic Opportunities & Business Models 2011-2016'.

Vox Communications Now Offering Free Use of Its Android Internet Calling App

vox_communications_logo.jpgVoX Communications is now allowing free usage of its mobile VoIP app for all Android mobile phones and Android tablets.

Pervasip's Chief Executive Officer, Paul Riss, noted, "We have updated our Android VoIP app so that any Android user can download it, make free calls and send free text messages to others who have our app. Earlier this month, we launched our Android app and required a fee of $4.95 to sign up for services and receive a telephone number. We had more than 1,000 downloads in the first week, and many people want to try the free calling before they use our service for inexpensive calls to landlines or other mobile phones. We have adjusted the product so that anyone who downloads the app can now try it without making a payment."

Report: Mobile VoIP Subscribers will Near 410 Million by 2015; VoLTE Still a Long Way Off

Infonetics Research released excerpts from its new Mobile VoIP Services and Subscribers report, which tracks native mobile voice over IP (a.k.a. voice over Long Term Evolution, or VoLTE) and over-the-top mVoIP service revenue, subscribers, and deployments by world region.


"The adoption of over-the-top mobile VoIP services is growing rapidly but it is not without challenges. With free applications and extremely low revenue from users, it is tricky for application providers without the deep pockets of larger companies like Google, Microsoft, and Telefónica to have a sustainable long-term business model. Despite the fact that we expect mobile VoIP subscribers to grow nearly 10-fold from 2010 to 2015, there is relatively little money to be made from it in the near term," poses Diane Myers, directing analyst for VoIP and IMS at Infonetics Research.

Report: Market Opportunity: mVoIP + Social + Presence

research_and_markets.gifResearch and Markets has announced the addition of the "Market Opportunity: mVoIP + Social + Presence" report to their offering. There is a unique opportunity, for a period of about three years, for certain so called Over-the-Top VoIP providers to offer social networking driven services that represent a low cost/no cost alternative to incumbent network operator's services.

More specifically, there is an opportunity for certain OTT VoIP providers to stand out from the crowd, gain market share, and attract the attention of acquiring incumbent wireless carriers. Those same mobile network operators need to recognize that a strategy to start with OTT Wireless VoIP is a bridge to "dialable" VoIP via LTE. They also need to recognize that OTT VoIP is also a longer term offering themselves, even in a ubiquitous LTE coverage environment (which will be many years in the making) as roaming partners will not necessarily have their own LTE coverage.
