ORLANDO, Fla. and LOD, Israel, March 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enterprise Connect - AudioCodes (Nasdaq:AUDC), a leading provider of Voice over IP ( VoIP) technologies and Voice Network products, today announced the launch of MobilityPLUS, an integrated enterprise solution that extends the feature set of Enterprise Telephony and Unified Communications systems to a broad range of leading smart phone platforms. Leveraging existing enterprise WiFi or 3G/4G data services, MobilityPLUS enhances enterprise employee productivity with "anytime/anywhere" connectivity resulting in improved efficiencies of business operations.
MobilityPLUS interoperates with market leading PBXs and IP-PBXs, as well as with integrated Unified Communications systems such as the Microsoft Office Communications Server R2 and Microsoft Lync 2010, allowing businesses to deploy enterprise mobility within their existing Microsoft UC environment. MobilityPLUS includes an Enterprise Edition of the widely deployed AudioCodes VoIP Mobile Access Solutions (VMAS) mobile clients and an AudioCodes Mediant business gateway with an embedded mobility integration application. The VMAS mobile client is available for Apple iOS, Android, Symbian and other popular mobile operating systems, making VMAS compatible with the majority of smart phones in use today.
AudioCodes MobilityPLUS reduces enterprise communications costs through the use of existing corporate WiFi networks, public WiFi or mobile broadband (3G/4G) data plans, reducing the number of mobile voice minutes used while on the premises and eliminating costly roaming charges when traveling. Through an advanced management system, enterprise IT executives can deploy and monitor mobile clients to users, extending their office "one number" to the mobile handset. This allows the enterprise to retain control of the users' business identities, allowing them to be reassigned as staffing changes occur."The emerging Enterprise Mobile VoIP Market is expected to grow very quickly along with the growing use of smart phones by enterprise users," said Elka Popova, Program Director at Frost & Sullivan. "Combining a mobile VoIP solution with connectivity to existing TDM and IP communications infrastructure will create great opportunities for enterprises to save costs and increase the productivity of their employees, by utilizing free or flat-rated Wi-Fi and cellular data service plans for business voice communications."
