[分享]iPad上的網路視訊電話軟體Voipswitch Video softphone (Vippie)

iOS平台上有為數不少的網路電話(VOIP)軟體(APP):
一、如果以條件 'SIP' 過濾,那大概會少掉三分之一,
二、如果以條件 'SIP + G.729' 過濾,那只剩不到十種,
三、如果以條件 'SIP + G.729 + 免費' 過濾,那答案是 '找不到'...

Why? 熟悉網路電話領域的人大概都知道, 'G.729 Codec' 是要支付權利金的,
天下沒有白吃的午餐,那有不勞而獲這等事(JB的不談)
So,今天要介紹的「支援G.729的SIP APP」當然是付費版的.

談到小弟要介紹的「支援G.729的SIP APP」,行家們大概會第一個想到的就是
CounterPath Corporation Bria iPad Edition.


Sorry! But It is not..

Voipswitch Video softphone(它的前身好像叫 'Vippie') 才是今天的主角.

以Full Edition的價格(美金計算)來說:
1.Bria=12.99+8.99+3.99+3.99=29.96(約台弊900元)
2.Voipswitch=14.99(約台弊450元)


價差有二倍耶,小弟最終選擇了 '2',原因是看過了Youtube上的這段演示的影片


發現我想要有的功能它都有了,而且高貴不貴...

這產品既然是要付費的,那當然是用過覺得很OK才推薦.
小弟在2012.6.21這一天在APP Store花了$14.99買了VOIP Switch 這套APP.


隔天iTunes就修改契約條款,改以台弊計價,還好,不是降價,不然真的是 ^@~~@^....


接下來看圖吧~~

這是程式啟動時的畫面,會Hold住1~2秒.


程式啟動後的畫面,在「數字盤」這一頁面上,讓您馬上可以打電話.


在「最近通話」這一頁面上,有撥打及接聽的紀錄.


在「設置」有些參數及資訊要先設定才能使用.


在「設置/帳戶設置」設定SIP Accont,只能設定一組.


這是「設置/網路與多任務」設定頁面,初階使用者應該用不到.


在「設置/媒體設置」設定頁面,還有區分「音頻媒體設置」及「影像媒體設置」.


這是「設置/音頻媒體設置」設定頁面.


這是「設置/音頻媒體設置/編碼」設定頁面,支援G729、G711、GSM、G722、AMR..等多種Audio Codec.


這是「設置/影像媒體設置」設定頁面.


這是「設置/影像體設置/編碼」設定頁面,支援H264、H263+、H263等多種Video Codec.


這是「設置/影像體設置/H264 Codec Type」設定頁面,可以設定軟解還是硬解.


這是「設置/影像體設置/視頻品質」設定頁面,採用 '高清' 時,流量只需480kbps.


這是「設置/語音信箱」設定頁面,還不知道怎麼用.


這是「設置/聊天」設定頁面,也是還不知道怎麼用.


小弟在新購入的牛排上安裝此APP後,註冊到 ITSP(ipbb)自建的IP-PBX 上,
實地以WiFi、3G連線來撥打SIP、PSTN、GSM..電話,都有很好的表現.

在影像電話的部份,和PC端的SIP Client軟體 'eyeBeam' 對測,也很不賴,因為不想露臉,所以就不貼圖了.
請問有轉接鍵嗎? 也就是說通話中可以把對方轉到其它分機的功能鍵。謝謝。

這個APP沒有設計 '轉接(Forward/XFER)' 鍵...

在 Elastix 這套 IP-PBX 系統下,通話中可以按 '##+分機號碼' 轉到其它分機,
就如同 FXS Gateway 接一般話機的操作方法一樣.

這個APP在通話中能使出的功能就這幾樣...




※比較值得一提的是,它有內建 '通話錄音' 的功能喲!
很棒的一套軟體唷!通話時還有顯示網路訊號品質,圖形顯示是幾格。在台灣買app軟體真好,我上次買還扣我稅金快台幣600了
電話號碼是延用舊號碼還是會另外號碼阿....

這是VOIP網路電話,不是用SIM(GSM)撥出,沒有所謂的原來號碼.
撥號到固網的話,看ITSP的顯示代表號是幾號就是幾號,
例如:ipbb的顯示代表號是 0226969181
rontzong 大,

我在Apps Stoer中似乎找不到這個軟體可以購買
請問搜尋的關鍵字是"voipswitch"嗎?
或是軟體已下架?
好像改成 Vippie 了。

如果要找其他的 softphone,可以來這看看 http://goo.gl/EuNRr

從我文章的前段點擊VoipSwitch的連結,發現這套APP真的在APP Store內消失了...
我想它應該是下架了,好在我原先買的還在也還能用.

現在的連結會導入到VoipSwitch官網,進入第二層網頁後,點選VoIP softphone for iDevices,
發可以裝的APP是「Vippie - Free Calls, Video & Text」及「Join softphone - VoIP SIP client」2種.

我想是,原先整套封裝(含G.729、H.26X Codec)的VoipSwitch,現在換個名字拆賣了.
感謝rontzong大,

已下載Join softphone
不知道您有沒有推薦可以在Android平台可以支援H.263的softphone
