Voice is the most natural form of communication and voice is out there in huge volumes, but voice remains locked inside of carrier networks. We love the idea that there is a group of qualified people and companies that are coming together to liberate voice. This group wants to put voice back in the spotlight—to drive the entire voice industry forward
At HarQen, we are on a mission to educate the marketplace about the potential of voice. The Hypervoice Consortium plays a critical role in educating and helping people understand what is possible for voice. The Consortium allows us to band together with other great organizations to advance the voice industry as a whole. Together we can garner greater attention for all new voice capabilities and applications, as well as accelerate the acceptance and understanding of new voice technologies and broadcast their existence.
We view the Hypervoice Consortium as a foundational thought leadership organization, created to enable new technology breakthroughs that will advance the entire telecom ecosystem. We are pleased to work with established leaders like Ericsson and Telefonica Digital and new emergent companies such as HarQen and Voxeo Labs
Hypervoice is defining a startling vision of where voice can go and how we can create new value in voice services. The value chain of voice services is starting to shift. Before, voice was limited to person-to-person communication; now voice is also a new form of data. As the value shifts and as different economic models start to emerge, the way you actually monetize voice and create an economy around voice is going to be manifestly different. This shift is significant and is at the root of our interest in Hypervoice.
