(PresseBox) (Zürich, ) iscoord ag, developer and a leading provider of awardwinning and integrated softphone technology isphone, announces the launch of isphone for iPhone. This mobile softphone enables VoIP calls over Wi-Fi and is available on the Apple iTunes App Store for $4.90. The application perfectly meets the needs of fixed/mobile operators, hosted SIP service providers and large integrators offering their own OEM mobile softphone.

The isphone for iPhone represents iscoord's first softphone application for mobiles and proves iscoord's ability to deploy its unique technology to mobile platforms. The application is available in the iTunes App Store and is offered to the telecom industry as whitelabel OEM product.

The current version 1.0.0 allows VoIP calls over Wi-Fi connections e.g. from home, office or outdoor.Due to partnerships with leading fixed/mobile operators and hosted SIP service providers, OEM versions of isphone for iPhone will be able to equally connect to mobile networks. This will increase usage and therefore revenue without losing customers to existing and new market players.

"With isphone for iPhone and upcoming mobile applications from iscoord, we are covering these expectations and will continue to develop and expand our mobile offering".

"It is important for our customers to offer a complete VoIP service and to have the market development in mind. Given the fact that the mobile networks are opening up for IPbased telephony, we decided to develop a first application for iPhones", states Rolf Kuster, Head of Development and Support at iscoord ag. "isphone for iPhone shows our ability to transfer the isphone softphone technology to mobile platforms. In response to market needs, we will support additional mobile platforms in the future. Our modular development and product approach enables us to implement proprietary functions and features, so that our partners can differentiate their offering in a smart and distinctive manner."
