Bell, Rogers Communications and TELUS have announced the successful completion of two-way mobile video calling trials between carriers.

Video calling lets clients create a ‘see-what-I-can-see’ connection with other callers. Mobile video calling is currently available through several carriers in Canada, but both callers must be on the same carrier’s network using compatible handsets.

When inter-carrier mobile video calling is launched, video calling will be possible across multiple carrier networks.

"By breaking down the barriers between video calling clients in Canada, we anticipate strong demand for the service – as we saw with past inter-carrier initiatives such as text and picture messaging," said Stephen Howe, CTO for Bell Mobility.

Bell, Rogers and TELUS each offer video calling handsets that support the internationally accepted open 3G-324M Video Telephony standard, ensuring compatibility with other systems and carriers supporting the standard.
