Gizmo5 Taps JAJAH For Termination Services
San Diego-based Gizmo5, the voice-over-IP firm headed by former MP3.com founder Michael Robertson, has tied into fellow voice-over-IP provider JAJAH for call termination. According to JAJAH, its platform is being used by Gizmo5 for all call termination, as well as customer care and billing. Financial details of the arrangement were not announced. Gizmo5, which was previously known as SIPphone, develops the Gizmo Project, which is a open source instant messaging and VoIP project. The firm's softphone allows users to use their computer to call both other computers and land lines; the service competes against similar services from Skype.
