Avaya and Nokia on Wednesday described the next phase of their strategic collaboration with a platform that provides users of Nokia Eseries business devices with one number access and advanced enterprise telephony capabilities as they travel across private Wi-Fi and public mobile networks.
The Avaya one-X Mobile Dual Mode Edition combines IP-based applications with Nokia Eseries business devices – the Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia E70 models.
The offering includes a dual-mode device with SIP capabilities that can make and receive calls over mobile and wireless WLANs. Workers can “handoff” phone calls at the click of a button, using dual-mode communications, as they travel from inside a company building (Wi-Fi) to the outside environment (mobile).
Avaya one-X Mobile Edition and Nokia Eseries business devices give workers one device for business and personal use, one number call access, and one voice mail message interface. Enterprise telephony features available with the dual-mode product include conferencing, transfer and extension dialing. Security benefits include the ability to authenticate the Nokia Eseries device to a PBX.
Avaya will sell the application as part of its IP telephony portfolio through its enterprise channels; Nokia will sell the solution through its operator and other channels. Both companies are investing research, development and marketing resources.
