ITEXPO: 2600hz Project Competes with Google Voice and Skype

By Jaclyn Allard, TMCnet Web Editor

The 2600hz Project, a subsidiary of VoIP, Inc. (News - Alert), announced free SIP phone service, designed to empower VoIP providers to compete with free calling services already available on the Internet. The white-label service bundles enable carriers to compete with similar offerings from Google Voice and Skype (News - Alert), operating via business grade SIP phones.

Darren Schreiber, CEO and co-founder of 2600hz, voices his concern that smaller VoIP carriers face competition in a marketplace where services are offered for free. "Combining quality services with our ad-based revenue system helps level the playing field by creating cost effective solutions that are trusted,” Schreiber added.

Details on 2600hz Project’s free SIP phone service and distributed cloud communications technology can be inquired about at ITEXPO (News - Alert) Exhibitor booth 106.

PromoCalling showcases 2600hz's flagship offering, distributed cloud communications technology, in which inexpensive cloud-based servers switch thousands of calls at little to no cost. The combination of ad-delivery services with inexpensive hosting technology allows for the low cost solution.  Ads are displayed on the graphical LCD of approved SIP phones during the day, offsetting the cost of most U.S. long distance calls. This ad delivery mechanism reaches a desired audience, providing a rich demographic and targeting a particular subset of business users.

Utilizing cutting edge technologies like FreeSWITCH, an offer made possible through a partnership with iCall (News - Alert) Carrier Services and with cooperation from YeaLink Network Technologies, 2600hz is leading the way in carrier-grade enterprise technology. The offering is available to providers utilizing the 2600hz software to power their hosted VoIP platform.
