High Definition Voice Technology

Equipped with PureVoice HD technology, Ooma Telo ensures all calls are clear and reliable even under extreme conditions. Plus, this cutting-edge phone solution uses an advanced voice compression algorithm that lessens bandwidth by up to 60 percent when compared to standard VoIP technology.
