During the Hong Kong Electronics Fair Spring Edition, leading embedded WiFi and wireless solution provider Libre Wireless Technologies announced an advanced consumer solution that allows voice activated and controlled Wi-Fi home speakers to make phone calls using an existing phone system. The solution is based on Libre Wireless LibreSync wireless media platform, combining key partnerships with DSP Group, which provides wireless phone solutions and audio processing technology, and consumer electronic lifestyle brand Nyne. 

The partnership intends to be the platform for many future CE products, enabling a unique and seamless integration of voice assistants into existing home telephone systems. Libre’s technology bridges the popular far field Wi-Fi voice control features with popular wireless phone systems. This new Libre platform brings voice control into everyday consumer life for phone calls and conversation management with no additional wires, products or complicated system setup.

“We are very excited to be working side by side with DSP Group and Nyne to introduce very simple and compelling features such as making a phone call using your voice assistant devices,” says Hooman Kashef, Chief Executive Officer of Libre Wireless Technologies. “This new feature may be extended to many applications and we are working on enabling several more product categories with this unique phone call making capability.”

“After extensive research of some of the leading Wi-Fi and Wireless solutions providers we have selected to work with Libre Wireless in implementing their platform into some of our most popular speakers,” explains Arman Arami, President of Nyne. “Libre not only brings voice control into our audio platforms but also their innovative and differentiating features, such as the ability to make phone calls via our speakers, helps us stand out in the market.”

"There is a strong desire to revolutionize smart speakers with telephony capabilities,” said Ofer Elyakim, CEO of DSP Group. “We’ve combined our advanced audio processing and telephony technologies to create the ideal solution for companies looking to transform their products into voice-enabled telephones. We’re pleased to partner with Libre Wireless Technologies and Nyne to deliver an intelligent phone experience unlike any other.”
