SIPphone Xten Networks today announced that they have joined forces to bring free telephone calls and conferencing to the masses. Xten softphones turn computers into business class telephones and offer unlimited user conferencing at the click of a mouse button. SIPphone delivers a feature-rich and free telephony network, and hassle-free configuration. Free phone calls and conferencing are the key to delivering true global communication to the general public.
SIPphone makes it possible for people to send and receive free calls worldwide using a technology called SIP, for Session Initiation Protocol. To make a SIP call, a supported SIP phone is plugged into a broadband Internet connection, the desired SIP number is dialed, and the call will be connected. All SIP phones come preconfigured with a SIP number (for example: 1-747-474-5000). This number can be shared with anyone with a SIPphone. SIPphones also support caller ID and call-waiting, all at no charge.
