TNITS – The Non-Incumbent Telephony System

VoIP is great. With the advent of SIP we can look forward to some excellent technology and services coming our way. Various broadband telephony initiatives have spurred on some serious debate in the regulation of VoIP but so far there hasn’t been any laws put in place to govern VoIP in the US. Similar things are happening in Canada.

When speaking about the potential success of Wi-Fi VoIP we can assume similar complaints from the mobile telephony providers including cellular and 2.5/3G. But do they really have anything to fear, at least in the short term? Making or receiving VoIP phone calls on a PDA while sipping your favorite coffee at your local Starbucks is one thing but how practical is it to replace our cell phone with a wireless VoIP enabled PDA?

Taking it to the Next Level
Imagine what would happen if the majority of all users that have a phone line and broadband came together to offer free IP/PSTN VoIP!


Working for the Weekend

Yeah, right. Xten is a busy little company. Most if not all of the Xten engineers are in 7 days a week working their asses off so we can make phone calls using our PCs, PDAs etc.

I was just thinking a random thought, I can’t wait until the codec wars are over so we can all freely communicate, PSTN or otherwise. Bring on iLBC, go Alan go!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Canadian Telcos Attempt to Corral New Competition. What else is new!

Canada’s largest telco Bell Canada is requesting that the CRTC [Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission] immediately commence a public hearing into the appropriate regulatory framework to govern the offering of services by the next generation of communications companies offering bundles of services.

SaskTel supports the motion as recently made evident by their document submitted to the CRTC on November, 10th.


Wireless VoIP

Although this niche in the VoIP sector is not generating a great deal of revenue for anyone at the moment, Wi-Fi VoIP has captured the attention of the PDA hardware vendors and we can expect more action in the new year as Cellular providers battle over customers and reach for added value propositions.

As wireless broadband Internet technology matures VoIP providers will be ready to deliver. As it sits today, you can forget about making VoIP calls on your Wi-Fi PDA while driving to work.
