Abbeynet, leading company in Europe in the development of advanced Voice over IP technologies, announces the integration of SIP technology on its Abbeyphone VoIP platform. Abbeynet started to develop its VoIP platforms in SIP protocol way back in 2002, but it is only now – with the massive spread of broadband – that it has decided the times are ripe for releasing this technology to be used by its Abbeyphone users.
What SIP is?
Like all acronyms crowding the computer technologies, also SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) will seem to be an incomprehensible acronym to many, but the same was also true for VoIP in the beginning. All of the potentials lying within this new technology are instead still to be unveiled. Over the next few years the SIP protocol will play an increasingly crucial role in the evolution of video communication services, Web Telephony, IM and Chat on IP protocol-based third and fourth generation networks thanks to its integration with WiFi and UMTS networks.
Access to Abbeyphone services becomes even easier with SIP.
With Abbeyphone SIP, we can make and receive phone calls using the normal home telephone (a SIP adaptor for connecting the phone to the home ADSL line is required) or by using a SIP telephone connected to the home or company router.
If, on the other hand, using the PC to make phone calls is preferred, now it is possible to use Abbeyphone SIP with any operating system – including Linux and MacOSX – and with the most popular Web browsers, from Opera to Firefox.
Access to your own private area therefore remains indispensable only for account administration operations, but it is no longer necessary for making and receiving phone calls. But it will always be possible to make and receive phone calls and video calls in your own private area using the Abbeyphone webphone.
Furthermore, by the end of this year a deskbar for Windows XP will be released. It will offer complete management of your Abbeyphone account and the possibility to make and receive calls directly from the taskbar or from your Outlook client.
Abbeyphone (abbeyphone.com) is a complete system of Web communication services entirely developed by Abbeynet. In addition to Internet consumers and providers, Abbeyphone also addresses operators of the more traditional markets, such as organisations and companies interested in providing their customers and consultants with VoIP services customised according to their own brands.
With more than five years of experience in the field of Voice Over IP technology and its more than 60 engineers, Abbeynet has attained a leadership position in Europe so as to become one of the most advanced companies.
