Raketu Enables VoIP from SIP Software Devices with RakSIP Service

By Anshu Shrivastava, TMCnet Contributor

Raketu reportedly has announced the release of its new RakSIP service, which allows users to connect to Raketu any third-party mobile or desktop SIP software client, IP Phone or session initiation protocol hardware device.

This helps users take advantage of Raketu’s RakOut calling rates, company officials say. According to the company, users – after logging to Raketu – can make phone calls from any device and from anywhere.
With the new RakSIP service, users can make outbound RakOut calls. This latest solution adds to the company’s existing communications, information, entertainment and social networking features.
Those features allow users to make international calls computer-to-computer, computer-to-phone, or phone-to-phone, send text messages, instant messages, and e-mail, either for free or at Raketu’s low rates. The calls can be made from any device, anywhere in the world, mobile or desktop or laptop.
Greg Parker (News - Alert), president and chief executive officer at Raketu, said that the introduction of RakSIP service enables users to access the Raketu VoIP services from any SIP software or device to make outbound calls locally and internationally at the lowest cost available.
“If our user has an iPhone (News - Alert), for example, they can download their favorite SIP software, connect to Raketu and start making VoIP calls,” he said.
To connect to Raketu and start making calls, users can use the built-in SIP client on a Nokia (News - Alert) or BlackBerry mobile device, or download a SIP client for their iPhone or WinMobile mobile device.
In addition, users can connect IP Phones, ATA devices and SIP desktop software to the new RakSIP service. At present, the new RakSIP service is available from the Raketu Web site and is accessible from the Raketu download client.
Raketu develops peer-to-peer IP applications that provide communications, information, media and social networking services for consumers and for business.
