Telefónica Europe, which bought mobile VoIP company JAJAH in December, has started rolling-out JAJAH-powered IP-based phone services across its O2 businesses in Europe.
The first is international calling service 'O2 Global Friends', which lets customers in Germany make international calls by dialling a dedicated local number. The call is then routed over the internet without the need for any software downloads or new hardware.
Matthew Key, Chairman and CEO of Telefonica Europe, said "By launching our first JAJAH-based products in Germany, we are bringing breakthrough new services to Europe’s largest telecommunications market, further reinforcing our global leadership as an integrated communications innovator. In the coming months we will roll-out further JAJAH-powered products across Telefónica territories to meet the growing demand for these new services."
