Gizmo Project Now Includes VoIP Conferencing

Gizmo Project uses your Internet connection to make calls to other computers. With the click of a mouse, you’re connected to friends, family, and colleagues anywhere on earth. You talk clearly for as long as you want — for free.

As business uptake of Web-based calling grows, among the features users are increasingly looking for is conference capability. To address this demand, Gizmo Project has enhanced its VoIP services by tapping Vapps, a provider of VoIP conference calling solutions, for its conferencing platform in order to offer free worldwide conference calling services to Gizmo users.

Vapps provides a carrier-class system for service providers and large enterprises to deliver high-quality reservationless, attended and operator assisted conferencing solutions. The solution is based on the company’s Conference Bridge 1000 (CB1000), a SIP-based conferencing platform that offers customized conferencing on a customer by customer basis both on legacy TDM and newer IP-based telecom systems.

“We chose Vapps’ conference calling platform because of the incredible simplicity the service brings to Gizmo users,” said Michael Robertson, founder of Project Gizmo. “Traditional conference calling has never been as easy as simply typing in a Web address and connecting up to 500 users in minutes.”

With the Vapps VoIP conference calling solution, Gizmo subscribers can connect multiple users over the Internet for cost-effective and reliable conference calls. All the features of a traditional conference calling service are available through Gizmo’s Web site.

Developed by SIPphone, Gizmo Project is capable of delivering its VoIP service via broadband or dial-up connections. Gizmo also offers inexpensive add-ons like Call In and Call Out, which allow users to connect via a landline handset.

“The addition of our advanced conference calling platform to Gizmo's package of service offerings gives consumers a one-stop-shop for Internet calling,” said Ben Lilienthal, CEO and co-founder of Vapps.
