CounterPath and NEC offer mobile UC solution
Desktop and mobile VoIP provider CounterPath has teamed with NEC Unified Solutions to introduc NEC's Smart Mobile Client, a fixed mobile convergence solution to extend the features of NEC communication servers.
Smart Mobile Client R2.2 will offer customers the ability to use enterprise smart phones like the Blackberry 9700, Nokia E72/N97 and Apple iPhone to get full access to their company's communications network even when they are on the go. The solution offers telephony, voicemail and corporate directory services as well as presence, instant messaging and conferencing capabilities for smart phones over cellular networks as well as through WiFi. Smart Mobile Client automatically routes their calls through the company's communications server based on the customer's least-cost-routing settings. The software supports Blackberry, Windows Mobile and Nokia Symbian platforms, as well as Apple iPhone and Android through a Web client.
"We are excited about our partnership with NEC Unified Solutions and the value it brings to their customers," said Donovan Jones, CEO of CounterPath Corporation in the release. "With Smart Mobile Client, customers on NEC call servers can now seamlessly shift phone calls off the cellular network onto their enterprise WiFi network, saving an estimated 30 percent on their mobile cellular spending. They can also select PBX routing schemes for considerable savings on (international) roaming costs, too."
