(PRWEB) November 6, 2008 -- Thanks to strong cooperation with Telnic the .tel domain names Registry, the upcoming version of voipGATE's softphone will integrate all the .tel Directory services and functionalities. Ease-of-access and contact management options provided by any .tel name will become instantly available to customers of the Luxembourg-based Voice-Over IP operator.

Jorge Marques, COO of voipGATE, explains, "voipGATE services are specifically dedicated to people always on the move, travelling from one country to the next, looking for an easy and fast way to be reachable and reach others. Integrating the .tel functionalities within our softphone interface will be a strong step forward, allowing people to store all their contacts' details in one place, with phone calls only one-click away. Any voipGATE customer holding a .tel domain name can activate the functionality from its voipGATE softphone and will be able to manage and use its .tel information directly inside our softphone interface".

The whole range of VoipGATE services will benefit from the .tel functionnality and bring a more tailored experience to the end-user. As Jorge explains, "if the person you are trying to reach through its .tel name is in a foreign country, the softphone will immediately detect this and connect you appropriately. This is one of the reasons why we are so glad that, much as voipGATE services, .tel is available from many devices, from cellphones to IP phones and desktop PCs".

Because a .tel domain name enables the user to store, update and publish contact information, web links and keywords directly on the Internet under a unique identifier (i.e., it is a perfect fit for a service as versatile as voipGATE. Moreover, since the .tel enables global discoverability in the first 'live', next-generation contacts directory, with keywords enhancing search engine optimization, voipGATE users holding a .tel domain instantly become more discoverable and reachable, online or otherwise. Through this technical partnership with Telnic, voipGATE once again demonstrates its know-how and engagement towards the interconnected communication industry of the 21st Century.

"voipGATE has been among the first companies we discussed with that saw the benefits of our open API platform for the .tel", concludes Henri Asseily, Telnic Chief Strategist Officer "we are excited to work together and are sure voipGATE customers will benefit tremendously from their very own .tel domain names".
