Munich, Germany-based fg microtec is rolling out the fgVOIP app for BlackBerry, which the company says allows SIP-enabled VoIP calls on all BlackBerry OS 4.6 and 5.0 devices with unrivaled call clarity.
fgVOIP app for BlackBerry enables high-quality, low-delay VoIP calls via SIP on all Wi-Fi enabled OS 4.6 and OS 5.0 devices, including the BlackBerry Curve 8520, 8900 and 9000, as well as the BlackBerry Bold 9700.
fgVOIPs Click2Dial feature lets callers make VoIP calls in exactly the same way as regular GSM calls. With Click2Dial, whenever the user makes a call using the standard BlackBerry dialer, the call is automatically routed over VoIP when in range of a Wi-Fi network no user intervention is required. Calls made while outside Wi-Fi range use the cellular network as normal. Users can also choose to enable or disable VoIP calls for specific numbers through an exclusion list.
You dont have to think about how to use our new app it just works”, said Robert Mirbaha, CEO of fg microtec. We designed the fgVOIP app for Blackberry to be easy to use; with fgVOIP you make calls using call history, from an SMS or from an e-mail just as you would any other call on your BlackBerry.”
fgVOIP app for BlackBerry works with hosted VoIP and PBX services enabling businesses to use their BlackBerry devices as extensions on the company PBX. When staff are in the office calls are automatically directed through the PBX, in effect turning the BlackBerry into a desk phone that can be carried with you.
We have completed a successful beta and are already seeing strong demand globally, especially from the U.S., Canada, the Middle East, South America and from business travellers. fgVOIP users who are away from the office simply need access to a Wi-Fi network in order to call their colleagues via the company PBX, saving on expensive long distance phone charges when travelling on business,” added Mirbaha.
fgVOIP comes pre-configured with a SIP provider so customers can make calls straight away; fgVOIP can also be configured to work with other SIP providers (e.g. Vonage, InPhonex, Cloudnet, sipgate and Localphone).
