Hop-on, Inc is launching the HOP1502 Wi-Fi IP phone and bundled software solution that allows users to make calls from any Wi-Fi hotspot. The HOP1502 handset provides all the features and functionality of a VoIP terminal adapter but has the advantage of enabling users to talk from any available public or private Wi-Fi access point. The main attraction point is the low price of this handset.
The new Wi-Fi handset features a small form factor similar to mobile phones and it supports a wide variety of VoIP features and functions, based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Service providers can offer a range of call features, such as three-way calling, call waiting, call forwarding and more based on the capabilities of their call servers. The HOP1502 also enables voice processes, including comfort noise generation, voice activity detection, and echo cancellation, as well as IP protocol features such as Real-Time Transfer Protocol (RTP), Session Description Protocol, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), and Virtual SIM (VSIM).
The VSIM solution enables non-ambiguous identification of a handset, protecting it against impersonation, anti-replay and fraud. VSIM provides an encryption mechanism for the media flow itself, applicable to voice, data or video streams on the handset.
The handset measures 126.2 x 46.3 x 27.5 mm and weighs 135g (with battery). It uses a mono backlit LCD with 102 x 650 pixels. The 1800mAh Standard Li-Ion battery provides a 3.5 hours of talk time or 30 hours of standby. The phone uses the SIP v1/v2 protocol, with audio codecs G.711/G.729A/AB+G/723.1+G.726. It works with 802.11b access points and supports WPA2 (PMK Caching) and 802.1x EAP-TLS.
