PHONE.COM AND TURBOBRIDGE PARTNER TO OFFER HD PHONE CONFERENCING TO BUSINESSES WORLDWIDE
CD Quality Audio Conferencing Now Available to Phone.com Customers
Livingston, NJ and Bethesda, MD – May 3, 2010 – Phone.com and TurboBridge are partnering to make a High Definition telephone audio conferencing service available to Phone.com’s installed user base. This new HD phone service launch comes just 3 months after Phone.com introduced its own High Definition (HD) Business Phone service, and it represents one of the most compelling business applications for HD voice.
TurboBridge recently launched the world’s first High Definition audio conferencing service. Powered by the company’s patent-pending TurboSound technology, TurboBridge offers quality HD audio combined with standard business conferencing features such as call recording, support for up to 250 conference participants, and lecture and Q&A modes. In addition, TurboBridge offers more access methods than any other conferencing service in the world, providing features such as direct connectivity for IP PBX’s and IP telephone handsets via a public SIP URI.
TurboBridge HD voice service can be accessed through any IP method, (Skype, SIP or TurboPhone) and has the extra benefit of being free (no telecom charges) while offering the highest audio quality in the business. These perks make TurboBridge a great solution for road warriors and international enterprises.
Phone.com and TurboBridge are partnering to give Phone.com customers their own dedicated conference access number as well as speed dial access from their Phone.com Virtual Office telephone handsets to their own dedicated conference bridges. Those Phone.com customers who have the new HD Voice Polycom HD phones will be able to enjoy their conference calls in crystal clear HD quality audio.
Phone.com will initially offer the enhanced TurboBridge conferencing service to its customers free of charge, further reinforcing its “all included” philosophy when it comes to bundling and selling services.
“Having launched our hosted High Definition (HD) Business Phone service just 3 months ago, we are very pleased to follow that up with the introduction of this new HD audio conferencing service in partnership with TurboBridge,” said Alon Cohen, EVP&CTO of Phone.com. “It is a great complementary service for our Virtual Office customers and gives them yet another reason to upgrade to new HD business phones and hear what the future holds for phone calls.”
