The possibility of Voice Call in iGap

Another feature called as Voice Call will be accessed to all iGap users on 10 June in the current year.

As we had promised, it’s going to be possible to have Voice Call in iGap. All iGap users will be able to have Voice Call through iGap with no cost in the new version of this app as 0.1.0 which has been developed by the iGap technical team and examined as well.

Voice Call has been established through WebRTC Technology. In this technology the voice communication as a call will be as P2P or Peer2Peer. In this kind of communication there is no other intermediary or third party. Thus, both parties could share their Internet Address with each other through servers and realize and identify each other to communicate.

After each peer is authenticated by another, their communication as a voice call will be established with no third party; additionally, the call content will not be shared with any servers, intermediaries or third parties except for the peers.

In fact, this communication is the infrastructure of WebRTC technology. We will safely state that voice call in iGap is thoroughly safe and secure and even trusted relying on the infrastructure of WebRTC technology. Signal application stepped forward the era utilizing this modern technology but got inaccessible in Iran.

 

Let’s take a look at the requirements for the voice Call Establishment in iGap:

To access the voice call we need the bandwith of 128 Kb at least and it is the least presented bandwidth by the operators currently, so it means the Voice Call in iGap is accessible for all iGap users.

Another consideration is this voice communication as a call is thoroughly free by iGap, you may ask this question: is using internet to establish the voice call cost-effective or not?

Let’s calculate together

The internet usage needed for this voice call through iGap with the bandwidth of 128 in an hour is 14400 Kb or 13.73 Mb. The free internet tariff calculated by the mobile operators would be 0.5 Mb for Postpaid SIM cards and 0.75 for Prepaid SIM cards; it makes a sense that the cost of an iGap voice call in an hour based on the free internet tariff with no packages would be 10800 RLS for Prepaid SIM cards and 7200 RLS for Postpaid SIM cards.

 

Now let’s take a look at the cost of Mobile voice calls

The cost of any voice call within the province covered network would be 6710 RLS for Hamrah Aval Prepaid SIM cards and 447 RLS for the Postpaid ones. This tariff is 620 RLS for Iran Cell Prepaid SIM cards and 49.90 RLS its Postpaid SIM cards. While this tariff is the least cost for both operators in a way covered within a province not out and with no moving costs.

Therefore, the cost of any voice call in an hour is 40260 RLS for Hamrah Aval Prepaid SIM cards and 26820 RLS for the Postpaid ones; while this costs 37200 RLS for Iran Cell Prepaid SIM cards and 26940 RLS for the Postpaid SIM cards.

Now with a simple calculation you will notice that the cost of a voice call in iGap even with using no increasing internet packages and free internet tariff will be inexpensive over 70% in comparison with the cost in operators of Prepaid and Postpaid SIM cards.
