LinkCall, a system that adds on-demand consumer and business telephone conferencing to existing fixed and mobile infrastructure, is launched today by Telsis.


Unlike many systems, LinkCall does not require users to register or pre-book. In addition, there are no complicated access codes and every conference participant pays through their own normal bill.


It means spur-of-the-moment group chats among friends and families, or conferences among business associates, are both easy and affordable.


Latest in a range of conferencing solutions developed by Telsis, LinkCall is delivered as a stand-alone package of hardware and software. It supports up to 640 simultaneous chat rooms or conferences, each with a capacity of up to 10 callers.


“We’re making it simple for operators to create differentiation and develop a profitable new income stream,” says John Sinden, Telsis business development director. “They need make no changes to their network. They simply install LinkCall alongside their existing infrastructure, advertise the service, and watch the revenue grow.”


Users follow a simple three-step process to join a LinkCall conference. They dial a designated LinkCall service access number, input the phone number of the person organising the conference, then press # to start chatting. Optional PIN numbers can be used for enhanced security.


The service runs on three products from the Ocean family of carrier-grade infrastructure platforms. Ocean fastIP intelligent peripherals incorporate powerful digital processing algorithms to support high-quality audio conferencing. The Ocean fastSSP programmable switch, with its on-board interactive functions, provides start-at-the-beginning audio greetings and DTMF detection on every port, while the Ocean fastSCP service control point allocates callers to the appropriate fastIP.


Other voice conferencing packages from Telsis are Telsis Let’s talk! and Voice Chat. Telsis Let’s talk! combines SMS group messaging and voice conferencing, enabling a conference organiser to invite other participants via SMS. Voice Chat lets operators add voice conferencing to existing SMS chat services.


Telsis' high-performance infrastructure and value added service platforms are in use around the world with major incumbents, mobile operators and many new entrants.


With its headquarters, research and production site in the UK, Telsis ( http://www.telsis.com) has sales and support operations in France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Singapore and Australia.
