Free World Dialup and Voxeo Announce Solutions for Session Initiation Protocol Phones
ORLANDO, FL, and MELVILLE, NY - Voxeo Corporation, a provider of XML-based Interactive Voice Response (XVR) telephony application hosting and platforms, and Free World Dialup, an Internet telephony network for broadband users, announced the launch of a developer and member connectivity partnership. Free World Dialup offers broadband communication to a community of Internet consumers who call each other using session initiation protocol (SIP) phones. Voxeo's community.voxeo.com developer site and services enable any telephony or web developer to quickly and easily create, test, and trial automated, telephone based applications. Jeff Pulver, founder of Free World Dialup said, "With the advent of our relationship with Voxeo, the 50,000+ members of the global Free World Dialup community all have access to a free platform where they can create cool new services and help us re-invent what communications is and will be, one day at a time." Jonathan Taylor, CEO of Voxeo Corporation stated, "Although Voxeo's VoiceCenter XML Voice Response platform and hosting facilities have been 100 percent SIP based for over two years, until today Voxeo developers and customers accessed our platform through traditional telephones and networks. By connecting with Free World Dialup, we're now providing direct SIP access to the rapidly growing FWD community, and a simple, flexible solution for our existing developers and customers to access their Voxeo applications from the widest variety of SIP hardware and software." Voxeo and Free World Dialup will launch other integration features in the near future, including the ability to call Free World Dialup phones from XML Voice Response applications and access to advanced SIP calling services with CCXML, the W3C standard for flexible call control markup.
