Hawaiian Telcom Licenses CallWave for Fixed-Mobile Convergence

Hawaiian Telcom (formerly Verizon Hawaii) will license CallWave's fixed mobile convergence VoIP software to provide VoIP-based convergence applications, which include branded desktop software, to its customers.

The CallWave capabilities will give Hawaiian Telcom subscribers the ability to screen live mobile calls and move these calls between their cell phone and landline. Hawaiian Telcom will also offer a branded version of CallWave's proprietary desktop VoIP software, where consumers can preview calls, listen to voicemail and direct incoming cell phone calls -- all from their Internet-connected PC.

Hawaiian Telcom's service will be called "Call Choice" and will be offered on a monthly subscription basis. A service trial is scheduled to launch in mid-October 2005, with the full roll-out in the first quarter of 2006.
