Net2Phone Rolls Out Wi-Fi VoIP Handset


Net2Phone Inc. rolled out the first product in its suite of wireless voice-over-Internet-protocol solutions, the company said Monday.

“The ‘VoiceLine XJ100 Wi-Fi Handset’ takes advantage of the features and functionality of Net2Phone's ‘VoiceLine’ broadband-telephony service, extending the ease in which service providers can offer SIP-based [session-initiation protocol] hosted wireless telephony services to their customers as an enhancement to their existing product set,” Net2Phone said in a prepared statement.

Net2Phone’s service enables both inbound and outbound calling and allows users to choose from a U.S. local, U.S. toll-free or U.K. toll-free telephone number, no matter where they reside globally, the vendor said.

"By removing the tether from wireline services, we have extended the availability of VoIP to customers who have access to wireless broadband," Net2Phone CEO Stephen Greenberg said in a prepared statement.

"By enabling service providers with a Wi-Fi VoIP solution that builds upon our existing broadband-telephony solutions, we have created one more method to enhance their service offering to their customers,” he added.
