Cambridge start-up making VoIP less tecchie
A Cambridge start-up has announced volume production of its first product a mere matter of months after securing angel financing.
The company says several orders have already been placed by service providers and further contracts are under negotiation.
Camrivox, which raised £900k in an angel round in March, has released its Flexor range of voice-over IP (VoIP) adapters, which bring cut-price calls within the grasp of even the most committed technophobe.
The new products, which are targeted at SMEs, allow VoIP calls to be made and received using an existing analogue telephone, without needing a desktop or laptop computer.
“The Flexor 151 is the first in the product range, it is much easier to install and configure than any current competitive product,” said David Moorhouse, VP of marketing at Camrivox. “This reduces the often significant support costs for service providers, and will potentially speed up the roll out and mass market adoption of VoIP.”
The new adapter works with any SIP-based VoIP service commonly used today and deployed by most major operators. The product can automatically select parameters based on the country of deployment, which allows operators to use the product across a number of countries worldwide, cutting inventory and management costs.
The experienced team heading up the venture includes Phil O'Donovan, founder of Bluetooth powerhouse, CSR and a number of key movers from DSL equipment maker, Virata.
