China VoIP & Digital Telecom Introduces Wi-Fi VoIP For Cellular Devices



January 17, 2007 By

Cellular Wi-Fi VoIP latest in growing list of innovative technologies to be introduced to the China market by Jinan Yinquan Technology Co. Ltd.

Jinan Yinquan Technology Co., Ltd. -- a wholly owned subsidiary of China VoIP and Digital Telecom Inc. -- today introduced to cellular subscribers the added ability to make calls using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), connecting via any available wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) network.

The new service will mean subscribers can save money on long distance calls using VoIP. In addition, callers using the WiFI/VoIP service will not pay roaming charges outside their home area.

"Our Wi-Fi/VoIP cell phone supports dual SIM cards," said Li Kunwu, president and CEO of China VoIP & Digital Telecom Inc. "One is for the VoIP number, the other is for the common GSM/CDMA cell phone network."

In addition to savings on roaming fees, Mr. Li added, "Calls between Wi-Fi/VoIP cell phones are free of charge. So users may save up to 80 percent on their long distance call fees while enjoying the same mobility and portability convenience of regular cell phones."

The new service will launch in April in Shandong Province. It leverages Jinan Yinquan's proprietary NP Soft Switch IP telephone system. Jinan will introduce the new service first to select enterprises and government organizations. In addition, as Wi-Fi networks expand in China, Jinan expects to roll out its Wi-Fi/VoIP service to the rest of the country.

Jinan Yinquan currently services three provinces and 19 cities with Shandong Province its primary base of operations. Plans call for expansion throughout China.

"We want every Jinan Yinquan VoIP subscriber to understand that we will continually be adding new state-of-the-art products and services," said Mr. Li. "Once someone becomes a subscriber, they will never need to seek out another telephone provider. Jinan Yinquan will be their one stop for all of their telecom needs, whether for business or personal use."
