SPIRIT DSP, the world''s top voice and video over IP engines provider, and Maaii Limited, a mobile VoIP application business based in Hong Kong and backed by one of the region's largest International Carrier Services Exchanges, have joined forces to deliver cross-platform, integrated HD VoIP (Voice Over IP) communications to consumers and operators.
Maaii has licensed SPIRIT's TeamSpirit Voice Engine Mobile and TeamSpirit Voice Engine PC SDKs (Software Development Kits) to power Maaii's new communication applications with HD-quality VoIP calling for iOS and Android devices. The Maaii iOS app launched in January and is available for free download from the iTunes App Store. The new Maaii app is a cross-platform, integrated communications product, allowing free WiFi/3G calling between Maaii users with amazing low-cost rates to mobile and landline numbers worldwide. Maaii’s Android client is currently in closed beta and will be available shortly.
"Maaii brings interconnectivity to consumers, carriers and enterprises with cross-platform, mobile-to-mobile communications," said Maaii's Vice President, Chris Lewis. “We're confident that SPIRIT's proven voice engine technology and extensive cross-platform support is the right choice to power HD-quality voice on our integrated communications products. In fact, since Maaii launched in the App Store on Jan. 9th, the app has seen incredible growth and has been well received by users and the media alike,” Lewis confirmed.
"SPIRIT DSP and Maaii share the same vision to deliver free mobile VoIP to operators and millions of end-users," said SPIRIT's Chairman Andrew Sviridenko. "Mobile VoIP Over-The-Top [OTT] services, such as Maaii, on both iOS and Android smart-phones and tablets are very hot now. In a broadband world, fast mobile VoIP penetration is complicated by the fragmented Android and very dynamic mobile device/OS market, and the lack of quality cross-platform (iPhone to Android to PC), real-time voice and video communications software. This is the problem SPIRIT addresses with our voice and video mobile engines, and we are advancing service providers with unified, HD VVoIP (Voice and Video over IP) capabilities for the most popular smartphones and OS versions."
