Yaletown Capital Aims to Oust Traditional Home Phone Use with New Offering
By Rory Lidstone TMCnet Contributing Writer
Yaletown Capital, a specialist in the design of wireless network-based communications and artificial intelligence, recently unveiled a new suite of Home IP Network Services that the company promises to be revolutionary. Put simply, rather than standard dedicated phone service, this new suite offers a multiservice home network option, which would combine home phone, live texting, Internet TV, message queuing, security and home door cam.
Speaking boldly, Yaletown Capital's president and CEO, Douglas Kind, said, "The time has come to drop obsolete analogue phone lines as the primary method of communicating in our homes. The home phone needs to adopt the Smartphone services model from this point forward."
Based on Internet Protocol (IP) functionality, this new service is capable of blending seamlessly with most smart or network capable devices, including tablets, smartphones and desktops. Subscribers would actually receive up to four home phone lines, which would integrate with household smartphones, allowing family members to answer home phone lines from their mobile phone.
Despite its advanced features, this suite of services is priced at less than the typical North American home phone service.
More than half of North Americans still use landlines today, which Yaletown Capital says is based on outdated analog technology. The company's home IP network offering was designed as a "logical replacement" of this older system which embraces the latest advancements in technology.
"These services will change how people think about that old 10-digit dialed number, or the Web," added Kind. "There's no web lookup as well as no need to choose web or telephone as the home network comes with a mini web portal that allows callers to select a specific individual with one touch when calling in."
The Home IP Network Services suite will be compatible with Android (News - Alert), iOS and other mobile devices. The suite will be made publicly available sometime in the first quarter of 2013.
Meanwhile, Yaletown Capital also recently announced its next generation of smartphone services, which combines traditional 10-digit calling and broadband mobile access.
