Multi-Link Introduces The TeleVoIP StickTM
Overcomes VoIP Residential Market Barriers and Provides E911 Access
As a rapidly growing communication option, VoIP must overcome several perceived barriers in order to gain broader national consumer acceptance. In response to those barriers, Multi-Link, Inc. designed the TeleVoIP Stick, which is a transparent communication system that allows for VoIP compatibility with the existing Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN).
“There are three major barriers to VoIP adoption by the consumer: resistance to change, loss of service, and E911 incompatibility,” said Ron Sladon, President of Multi-Link. “The TeleVoIP Stick overcomes each of these barriers and empowers the user with new levels of convenience, choice and control in everyday communications.”
The TeleVoIP Stick was unveiled recently at the CES Innovations Plus show on January 6th, 2005. “The TeleVoIP Stick was designed to enable the transparent blending of the everyday phone experience with an Internet voice application,” stated Sladon.
The TeleVoIP Stick enables all home phones to operate as traditional analog phones or VoIP phones transparently. During power failures or broadband service disruptions, the TeleVoIP Stick automatically directs all outbound calls to the PSTN line, allowing for seamless communication service.
One of the most critical features of The TeleVoIP Stick is its ability to automatically route E911 calls through the traditional PSTN line. This unique Patent Pending feature eliminates the concern for E911 calls made by VoIP consumers.
Unlike other telecom technology advances that require the user to purchase new phone equipment, The TeleVoIP Stick allows the user to keep and use their existing standard home phone equipment and, more importantly, their calling habits remain the same. “The TeleVoIP Stick was designed with enough power to drive six or more solid state telephones,” stated George Hart, Multi-Link’s Director of Technical Services.
