Obihai – Connecting to Google Voice and More

Event: Friday, July 29th at 12 Noon EDT

We will be giving away 1 OBi110 and 1 OBi100 to “lucky” listeners. See posts on Google Plus.

If you don’t win one, you can order an OBi100 VoIP Telephone Adapter and Voice Service Bridge from Amazon, which will also throw a buck or two into the VUC beer fund.

Obihai is just getting going, but are already enjoying the popularity the OBi has received from end-users, VARs and VoIP SPs. We will talk about what they’ve done in the SIP, XMPP, P2P and social networking technology space and how this is related to the explosion in social networking apps, the popularity of VoIP services and the ‘un’ popularity of the land line service.

They sent me an OBi110 evaluation unit. I connected and plugged in the lightweight, white plastic box, called the echo test number, and it worked perfectly, with a low lag time from here in Southern California. Fine, but for us logtime VoIP users, not exactly a revelation. However, the ease of connecting to a Google Voice number suddenly makes this very reasonably-priced ATI very interesting.

Thanks for the link, Dave, the more evaluation the better!
