Developed in Canada by TNW, , the Internet Personal Communication System, is a patent pending Smartphone-Over-IP (SoIP) technology. iPCS™ is an IP-only and Cloud-based technology which uses only data to deliver all mobile services, eliminating the need for traditional protocols for voice and SMS text services.
iPCS features unlimited calling and MMS services when on Wi-Fi, and this represents a valuable alternative for international mobile roaming services. Only calls made outside the continental US and Canada can incur additional charges.
All personal information such as SMS texts, call logs, contact information and voicemail reside on secured cloud servers which can only be accessed under a secured user session. This means that when a user chooses to log out of the service the information cannot be accessed on the smartphone and 911 emergency services are available.
Users can have multiple profiles on their device, each with different usernames and different phone numbers, SMS text number, voicemails etc. Therefore several iPCS™ users can share the same smartphone device if they choose. iPCS™ SIM cards are not tied to a specific subscriber as in traditional mobile services so iPCS™ users can access their TNW Mobile service on any phone with a TNW Mobile SIM. Users are not tied to a single device as the entire service is based on a login access.
