Ooma (http://www.ooma.com), a provider of free home phone service, has announced new wireless offerings.
The new Ooma Telo Air wireless adapter, the Ooma Telo can now be placed anywhere in the home within range of a Wi-Fi network. The company also announced that it is extending the availability of its Ooma Bluetooth service to all Ooma Telo subscribers to broaden the integration of mobile phones and Ooma home phone systems. Ooma Bluetooth service was previously only available to Ooma Premier service subscribers.
Ooma’s first-to-market support for home Wi-Fi VoIP connectivity is made possible by Ooma’s PureVoice HD technology with voice compression and adaptive redundancy to overcome any signal degradation within the wireless network. More information on Ooma PureVoice HD technology is available at http://www.ooma.com/products/ooma-purevoice .
By using the new wireless adapter to untether the Ooma Telo from the modem or router, customers have more convenient access to their cordless phone base station, voicemail messages and other advanced features that Ooma offers, according to Jim Gustke, vice president of Marketing at Ooma. They also have the option of using the Ooma Telo as a wireless bridge for laptops and other devices throughout the home.
Ooma is delivering broad home coverage and a high-quality calling experience using the latest 802.11n wireless standard combined with Ooma PureVoice HD technology. The latter delivers crystal-clear call quality and up to twice the fidelity of standard phone calls for a richer, more natural sounding conversation, says Gustke.
Ooma also offers the Ooma Mobile HD app for Apple and Android and Apple mobile devices so customers can save money on domestic and international calls by tapping their Ooma account on the go over any Wi-Fi or 3G network.
