Irvine, CA -- Hop-On, Inc. announced today that it will exhibit its recently introduced Wi-Fi handset at the 9th annual Fall VON Conference and Expo being held at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center from September 20th to 22nd. The VON Expo is the VoIP industry trade show featuring all of the leading vendors in the IP communications industry.
Hop-on will showcase its HOP1515 Wi-Fi IP phone and software solution that allows users to make secure calls from anywhere there is a Wi-Fi hot spot - at home, at work, around town; in airports, coffee shops, & hotels and even internationally. The HOP1515 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 with complete security, authentication and roaming capability.
Utilizing the Virtual SIM (VSIM) patented software technology, which replicates the same benefits of GSM/CDMA security and authentication in Wi-Fi phones, Hop-on has now substantially reduced the security and billing challenges faced by carriers.
Dan Gannon, Chief Executive Officer of Hop-on commented, "Wi-Fi phones have not yet been deployed in quantity by carriers due to security challenges such as fraud, theft of call information, passwords and the lack of 911 Emergency Service. However, Hop-on's VoIP solution enables these providers to offer both a low cost handset as well as billing and security enablement which we believe will help overcome these challenges."
