CHANNEL PARTNERS — AireSpring Communications (Booth 5024) said today it plans to deploy Metaswitch Accession technology on AirePBX, bringing unified communications (UC) enhancements to the company’s product.
That means subscribers will be able to make high-quality voice and video calls from their smartphones and tablets over 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi networks, while presenting their ‘twinned’ enterprise phone number. With Accession Communicator, AirePBX will allow users to move calls in progress between clients on their iPads, iPhones, Android devices or PCs, and their desk phone or cellular device, freeing them from their desks.
“Metaswitch’s Accession portfolio makes mobile unified communications deployable as a genuinely usable business service," said Al Cook, vice president of business services products at Metaswitch. “Our focus on voice and video quality, battery life management, and platform independence makes this a real solution for customers’ modern business environments."
Tablet and smartphone users also will be able to review and forward their visual voicemail, video-mail and fax messages, as well as configure their call management rules.
AirePBX further provides free local and interoffice calling, free network monitoring, free phones and optional unlimited long-distance. Other features include auto-attendant, caller ID, call transfer, conferencing, toll-free numbers and virtual extensions.
