Kineto Announces Skype-Killer for Carriers
Kineto Wireless today announced Smart VoIP, a new over-the-top VoIP application that can be used by wireless network operators to compete with the likes of Skype and other mobile VoIP services. Kineto says that the application works over Wi-Fi, 3G, and LTE; can be tied to a carrier's core voice network; and uses the carrier's existing IMS voice infrastructure. The application works with a number of smartphone platforms, such as Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. Smart VoIP can be branded by the carrier and offered via the carriers' own app store to customers. Kineto is positioning the application as a way for carriers to keep customers using its services rather than just its network.
