Announcing the launch in India, Mr. Shailendra Kumar, director, PeerMe said, “With India’s rapidly growing Internet population, currently more than 25 million users and the fifth largest world-wide, our vision is to bring a human connection to the Internet through voice-enabling it. Using industry standard protocols, PeerMe’s peer-to-peer voice system provides sound quality almost equal to Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), free and unlimited to any Internet connected PC user worldwide.”

“Similar to the impact of mobile telephones, PeerMe allows computer users to communicate with their network of friends, family and colleagues anywhere, anytime,” said Tom Lasater, founder and CEO of PeerMe. “PeerMe is committed to enabling online communities and helping to bring people around the world together through the use of our easy-to-use technology. What sets PeerMe apart is our technology, which is aimed at voice enabling the Internet. In addition to our first product, which provides free communication over the Web in the form of superior quality voice or instant messaging, our technology is designed for integration into Web sites and portals enabling direct communication between online users.”

PeerMe has developed a messaging environment supporting PC-to-PC and PC-to-handheld voice communications and instant messaging over public Internet connections. PeerMe’s technology can be used independently by connecting on a peer-to-peer basis or integrated into Web communities, thus bringing a new generation of interactive connectivity to users.

PeerMe’s capabilities and services are as follows:
• PeerMe can be the Web platform for voice communications and instant messaging
• PeerMe can provide unlimited, free PC to PC Internet voice communications using free software downloaded from the company Web site or from hundreds of software download Web sites available worldwide

In addition to the P2P voice technology service, an Application Programming Interface (API) that enables Web site developers to add voice communications and instant messaging to their sites will be provided as well. PeerMe’s API helps Web developers use or combine voice communications and instant messaging capabilities. For example, an Internet price comparison site could utilize the API so that site users can search through the list of sellers offering specific brands and click on the PeerMe icon to talk to any online seller instantly.
