VoIP Product Plan by Eschelon Telecom

Eschelon Telecom plans to add Voice Over Internet Protocol product capabilities to its network. The new IP applications will leverage the existing network infrastructure from Nortel and Cisco Systems, and will be available in addition to existing TDM products.

“We have always maintained that VoIP products can work very well for some customers,” stated Richard A. Smith, Eschelon’s President and CEO. “At the same time, there are customers with applications that do not work well over this technology. By offering both technologies, we will be able to offer the best solution to fit the customer’s needs, rather than forcing the customer into the only technology we offer.”

SunRocket Offers $.01 per Minute VoIP Calling to China

sunrocket.gifSunRocket announces an unprecedented new calling plan that drops rates to Asia Pacific locations including China, Japan, Hong Kong and Vietnam to as little as one cent per minute.

The annual, all-inclusive $199 Asia Pacific Edition offers a compelling and unique alternative for U.S. consumers who frequently call friends and family located throughout the Asia Pacific. With per-minute calling rates well below traditional phone service offerings and as much as 90 percent less than other major VoIP providers, the SunRocket Asia Pacific Edition value proposition is unmatched in the industry.

"Prior to the SunRocket Asia Pacific Edition, consumers were forced to jump through hoops to seek savings on international calls to these destinations, often resorting to inconvenient and deceptively expensive prepaid calling cards," said Joyce Dorris, SunRocket co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer. "Now SunRocket makes it easy for consumers to enjoy the lowest per-minute rates to Asia, building upon our mission to change what is possible for consumers and challenge historical pricing practices by our competitors."

The Asia Pacific Edition reduces international rates to $.01 per minute on all calls (landline and cell) to China, Singapore and Hong Kong; and on landline calls to Taiwan, Malaysia and South Korea. Landline rates fall to $.02 per minute for Japan; while SunRocket's rate on all calls to Vietnam is cut nearly in half to $.10 per minute.

VoIPMonitor: Keeps You Plugged Into VoIP

pluggedin.gifSo after writing a nice long post and nearly finished. It was explaining this new category on VoIPMonitor.net when my IE 7.0 crashed. Go figured I hadn't saved, copied or pasted it anywhere either. So, I'll just keep this attempt short and sweet.

With so much daily VoIP news to report, I figured it'd be a great to extend my readers reach to fellow VoIP bloggers by sharing some sites that I read regularly. You might already visit these sites and perhaps you haven't heard of some. I guess too much news can't be a bad thing so without further ado behold the VoIP Bloggers category.

VoIP Market Growing as Consumer Offerings Expand

paper.gifThe VoIP IC market is not only growing, but also shifting as consumer offerings expand, reports In-Stat. Wireless and video will play stronger roles in the next several years and present new challenges for chip level players, the high-tech market research firm says.

“Tomorrow’s IP phones and the semiconductors used to produce them will clearly be very different from today’s business-oriented sets,” says Norm Bogen, In-Stat analyst. “New forms of interconnection at both the edge and the core ultimately mean VoIP chips will disappear at the network level, as VoIP fulfills the prophecy that someday it will be ‘simply another application on an IP network.’”

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:
  • While today, less than 16% of total VoIP chip revenues are attributed to IP phones, this segment will represent close to 60% of total sales by 2010.
  • Revenues associated with VoIP ICs will grow from $613.7 million in 2006 to $2.63 billion by 2010.
  • Infrastructure revenues associated with VoIP chips will make up only 13.6% of total revenues in 2010.

German VoIP Provider Betamax has Cheap Corporate Overseas Calls

Germany's VoIP service provider Betamax provides corporate customers with overseas phone connections into over 449 national landline and mobile networks from EUR 0.005 per minute via www.voicetrading.com. A technological pioneer in this field, the company also provides simple and rapid installation for all SIP communications devices along with the low per-minute charges.

"While only private users were able to profit from the low costs of Voice-over-IP up to now, we have developed a suitable solution for businesses," says Gary Sherman, marketing manager at Betamax GmbH. The target group mainly consists of call centres and call shops that conduct a large number of international calls. Regardless of the number of SIP devices and extension numbers, one single account at www.voicetrading.com is enough to secure the cost advantages of this service. After registration, the access data only need to be entered once into each SIP device or router to reduce telephone expenses by up to 90%.
