Teleo and Global IP Sound


I already knew Teleo was using Global IP Sound's technology before the news was announced today since both will be in my P2P VoIP speaking panel at Internet Telephony Conference & Expo.

But now that the news is "official", here's the scoop... Teleo has introduced a personal, portable VoIP service for $4.95/month that allows click-to-call and mobility for Voice over IP that leverages Global IP Sounds renowned VoIP codecs.
 
Teleo, a San Francisco-based VoIP provider, unveiled its new software and service at the  DEMO@15! conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. It targets mobile professionals and those who rely on cell phones and email as primary communication vehicles. Priced at $4.95 per month, a free 30 day trial can be downloaded today at www.teleo.com.
 
“Teleo makes VoIP convenient and portable, making it ideal for mobile professionals,” said Peter Sisson, CEO of Teleo. “Teleo adds VoIP to the communications tools people are already using – cell phones, email, and web browsers. You can receive calls on a PC, or answer them on your cell phone. Click on an email and you are instantly connected to the person who sent it. See a number on a website? Click it and the call goes through. Teleo lets you place and receive calls whenever and wherever is most convenient and most economical.”
 
Teleo is a personal, portable VoIP system that lets customers use their cell phone, regular phone or PC to receive VoIP calls. Unlike location- or device-centric telephony, Teleo is a free-floating service that can be used anywhere there’s an Internet connection. It features patent-pending technology that safely transverses firewalls without changing settings, so calls can be made over WiFi or inside corporate environments. When Internet access is inconvenient, Teleo calls can be made or received on a cellular or regular phone.
 
Because Teleo is SIP-compliant, it works with enterprise VoIP systems and other VoIP networks. Teleo can receive calls from other PCs and regular phones, and place calls to anyone, anywhere – on a cell phone or PC – with the cost savings of VoIP. All Teleo-to-Teleo calls are free worldwide, as are inbound phone calls from any phone or PC.
 
Teleo offers Microsoft Outlook and Internet Explorer integration, facilitating “click to call” for any telephone number on the screen; it includes call forwarding and will soon offer voicemail.
 
Teleo’s voice quality is powered by GIPS VoiceEngine™ technology. “We are proud that GIPS VoiceEngine™ technology will provide Teleo’s superior voice quality, helping them to build a strong presence with mobile professionals,” said Gary P. Hermansen, President and CEO of Global IP Sound.
 
Account management is facilitated through Teleo’s website. Users can set an inbound calling number, change voicemail and call forwarding settings, and view call detail records for PC-to-PC calls and calls to regular telephones. Prepaid minutes for outbound calls to regular phones around the world can be purchased for 2 cents/minute, as can accessories.
