About KasaClient

Kasanoma Client enables you to communicate in real-time with friends and colleagues in a peer-to-peer or group environment using broadband network.

 

An integrated solution, Kasanoma consists of client software that resides at the endpoint and server software that manages all clients.

 

Users may communicate by Texting, using Audio or Audio/Video.

 

You call friends (or receive calls) for one-to-one communication from anywhere in the world. During the conversation you may allow other friends who call to join the conversation, or you may call other friends to ask them to join the conversation.

 

Set up a Meeting, a Meeting, or create Hangout sessions and ask friends and colleagues to join in. Better yet, look in KasaBook for an interesting group and join in.
