Raketu new P2P VoIP app takes on Skype
September 12, 2006 Search VoIP & Gadgets Blog
Is Raketu the next Skype killer? Raketu today launched a blog:
new VoIP client that also offers information and
entertainment services. Raketu’s communications features Tom Keating: CTO, VP,
include dialout calling (rakOut) to landline/mobile phones, Founder of TMC Labs; Search
Instant Messaging (supporting Raketu, Yahoo, MSN, AOL, Journalist reporter for Internet
Telephony Magazine; B.S.
ICQ, Google and Skype), SMS-text messaging, and file
Computer Engineering, 13
transfers/sharing. years telecom experience, 28
years programming, tinkering
Raketu's information features include news, sports, with and breaking computers.
weather, stock feeds, and an advanced internet and travel Gadgets, consumer electronics,
and VoIP are my favorite topics
searching facility. Raketu’s entertainment features include a

podcast reader/player, games, and a full featured multi-
media player with karaoke. Raketu supports click-to-call,
click-to-im, click-to-sms, global online presence, and
enhanced social networking features. I even noticed
the software supports plugins, including games such as the
classic Battleships game. I guess this would be Web 2.0
meets VoIP 2.0. Still missing some of my "cool" features for
the perfect unified communications client.
In any event, Raketu’s peer-to-peer (p2p) technology
allows high quality VoIP calling and they claim the highest
call-completion, without the security issues associated with
supernodes (i.e. Skype) and other traditional p2p
technologies. And unlike other p2p communications
providers, Raketu does not use your computer for other Contibutor:
users’ communications. Randy Savicky has written
about consumer electronics
According to Raketu, "More exciting services are planned for and gadgets since the early
days of the PC. He is president
the coming months when Raketu will launch in-bound
of Strategy + Communications,
calling, advanced voice mail, large conferencing, and more. a marketing consulting firm
Today, Raketu provides the most comprehensive integrated that helps technology
communications, information and entertainment tool companies influence their
available, providing more options, more control, and more customers and partners with
more consistent, clear and
personal activity features than any other service."
Raketu runs over any internet connection including <gasp> dialup.
