VoIP deal for Globecomm

One Horizon Group, which operates its own Chinese retail VoIP service called Aishuo, has signed an agreement to deliver its mobile VoIP service to Globecomm Asia.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The technology will be used in the delivery of a new Globecomm branded crew-calling VoIP app. Globecomm will purchase pre-paid calling cards from One Horizon and resell to ship crews through its network of maritime distribution channels.

Phone calls will be carried through the One Horizon Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) in Asia, Europe and North America, and billed to the crew on a pay-as-you-go basis. One Horizon says that it expects monthly revenue per vessel of to reach $150 on the service.

One Horizon's technology has already been successfully trialled by Globecomm and is aimed at smaller capacity internet connections like satellite internet because of its low bandwidth usage. The company has previously completed maritime deployments with Singtel and Smart Communications in the Philippines.

“We were delighted to be able to expand our VoIP as a Service platform to even more high quality maritime operators like Globecomm,” said One Horizon Group CEO, Brian Collins.

“Our track record of success in low bandwidth conditions like those at sea or at remote mining sites is a key driver for these new revenue streams in our business. Both teams worked tirelessly to deliver a truly high quality and affordable calling solution for the crews aboard the Globecomm fleets.”

The Globecomm app can be downloaded from the Google Play store and from Apple's iTunes App store.{/mprestriction}
