Interactive Voice Dialing for PhoneGnome

logo-gold.gifPhoneGnome is using Tellme Networks products to provide PhoneGnome users with in the ability to just say what they want and get it, while making free calls anywhere in the world.

Instead of the annoying buzz of the traditional dial tone, Tellme's technology provides PhoneGnome users with an intelligent menu to direct the experience using their voice. The caller is greeted by name, and asked what they would like to do. PhoneGnome users can call any contact in their PhoneGnome address book simply by speaking the contact's name. The resulting call will be made using whatever telephone service the PhoneGnome owner has subscribed to, such as the local PSTN telephony company, or a PhoneGnome-enabled Internet telephone service provider. The caller has the option to use the telephone keypad to dial any phone number, as usual.

"By leveraging Tellme's network we are able to create a great user experience combined with the ease of use and mobility of PhoneGnome, delivering greater freedom of access to PhoneGnome owners," said David Beckemeyer, CEO of TelEvolution and developer of PhoneGnome.

SIPBox Changes Name to NeoPhonetics

SIPBox changes the company’s name to NeoPhonetics. “Neo” is a prefix derived from the Greek language meaning a revival in modern form. “Phonetics” is the science that deals with the production, transmission and perception of the spoken language.

“We wanted a name that better communicated our full range of services for the long-term,” said Chad Agate, co-founder and CEO of NeoPhonetics. “The combination of ‘Neo’ and ‘Phonetics’ best reflects our main objective – to design and build the most advanced phone systems, based on the latest, most cost-effective technology available.”

Working with the flexibility of Asterisk, NeoPhonetics engineers and integrates new and hybrid telephony solutions for customers who want to make a seamless transition to VoIP. The open standards nature of Asterisk enables a variety of technical combinations that would not be possible when working within the restraints of proprietary solutions. This provides tremendous cost savings and ease of management when moving employees, upgrading equipment, programming conferencing capabilities and establishing remote facilities.

“NeoPhonetics is taking a strategic stance in the open source telephony market,” said Krithi Rao, Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst. “As more companies adopt open source platforms, there is great potential for NeoPhonetics as one of the few integrators with enough expertise to offer a complete VoIP solution based on Asterisk – from the engineering phase and through on-site implementation. The new name suits NeoPhonetics’ next-generation objectives.”
