iCall Service begins a New Era of Broadband Telephony Service


Milpitas, CA — August 10, 2004 — InnoMedia™, Inc., today announced that APOL (Asia Pacific Online), a Chinese 3G and Internet Service Provider, has chosen InnoMedia end-user devices for its iCall broadband telephony service. iCall subscribers will enjoy high-quality broadband voice service with InnoMedia’s MTA3328R, a SOHO Router gateway which serves both voice and NAT router functionality.

The model MTA3328R adopted by APOL for its iCall service fulfills both small business and residential broadband IP telephony requirements. Connecting to any standard analog telephone sets, the MTA3328R allows iCall subscribers to enjoy all the benefits of broadband IP telephony. The InnoMedia MTA3328R, utilizing advanced voice compression algorithms, lets subscribers conduct 3-way conference calls with crystal voice clarity, with no echo, no noise, and no jitter.

In addition to unlimited on-net calls, iCall grants regular fixed-line E.164 numbers to subscribers and therefore lets PSTN users make calls to iCall subscribers, and vice versa, with economical connection fees. iCall subscribers are able to save money on phone service without the need to change dialing behaviors or give up the universal connectivity they are accustomed to.

Most SME customers today subscribe to broadband Internet service with a single IP address for budgetary purpose. MTA3328R supports NAT functionality to have voice and data service running on a single IP connection line, and allows simultaneous Internet access for up to 5 PCs. Its built-in voice QoS function guarantees the bandwidth required for crystal clear voice calls even while surfing the web or downloading files.

“To provide APOL iCall subscribers the best voice service, we tested many CPE devices provided by tons of vendors. We choose InnoMedia as our preferred partner, because we were convinced by InnoMedia’s advanced technology in IP telephony solutions, and their responsiveness and professionalism,” said James Jang, President of APOL and EBT Telco Group. “We are pleased to work with InnoMedia and hope to exploit the IP Telephony market with quality products delivered quickly to our customers.

Nan-Sheng Lin, President of InnoMedia said, “We are pleased to be partnering with APOL, the most recognized 3G and Internet broadband service provider in the Asia Pacific Region. By employing MTA3328R, the SOHO Router VoIP+NAT gateway, APOL may offer revolutionary end-to-end broadband voice services to the public. We are so glad to participate in this superior plan to launch a new era of broadband IP telephony service in the region.”
