Sprint will rely on the BlackBerry Mobile Voice System to power the next version of the Sprint Mobile Extension, which is used by more than 75,000 mobile workers.
BlackBerry MVS integrates the functions of a desk phone with a BlackBerry smartphone. Mobile workers can streamline their communications with one corporate phone number that simultaneously rings up to four devices, one caller ID and a consolidated voice mailbox. BlackBerry users also can access enterprise desk phone functions like transfer, allow and block callers, and seamlessly hand off calls between BlackBerry smartphones and desk phones using the integrated interface on the BlackBerry.
Designed to integrate with both TDM and IP PBX systems, BlackBerry MVS leverages an organization’s existing telecom infrastructure. IT and telecom administrators can route calls from a BlackBerry smartphone through the PBX for cost management, and the system provides call logging and auditing to better comply with regulatory mandates. Voice service usage policies can be set on a per-user basis.
T-Mobile USA also will be implementing BlackBerry MVS in the coming months, it announced.
