OptiMobile AB and Global IP Sound

Some news to share - another win for Global IP Sound - whose codecs are used in many VoIP applications, including Skype, Teleo, and others.

OptiMobile AB, a company within the field of seamless convergence of WiFi and cellular telephony, has licensed VoIP technology from Global IP Sound (GIPS), a leading provider of embedded voice-processing solutions for the Voice over IP market, to enable its patent-pending WBX wireless VoIP technology.

OptiMobile will integrate GIPS VoiceEngine Mobile into WBX, an innovative technology which guarantees automatic and seamless handover of ongoing voice calls between WiFi (VoIP over WLAN) and cellular networks. Virtual operators (ISP, MVNO, and hosting providers) can provide WBX enabled services to enterprises, municipal organizations and homes. This client/server solution connects the server to the virtual operator's network central, while the client is used in the mobile devices.

"Global IP Sound's products are widely recognized as the leader in terms of providing the highest call quality available for VoIP. We believe that our partnership with Global IP Sound will serve as quality assurance for users of WBX UniPhone and WBX enabled services," says Lars Edman, CEO of OptiMobile AB. "We are confident that the combined solution of WBX technology and VoiceEngine Mobile will be very attractive to the market place."

OptiMobile uses Global IP Sound's VoiceEngine Mobile PPC to provide end users industry leading voice quality for WiFi VoIP calls."Mobile users are becoming a critical component to any conversation about VoIP-and truly anywhere/anytime communication is quickly becoming the norm," says Gary P. Hermansen, President and CEO of Global IP Sound. "OptiMobile's WBX technology addresses the demand for a reliable bridge between WiFi and cellular networks. Meanwhile, GIPS VoiceEngine Mobile ensures the voice quality that's vital to the user experience. The end result promises to be a powerful and comprehensive solution for the emerging WiFi market."
