CallWave Leverages Nokia and Cisco Telephony Solutions in Groundbreaking Demo of Mobile Unified Communications
CallWave, Inc. (NASDAQ:CALL), a leading global provider of mobile and Web-based unified communications solutions, will showcase at Interop New York a solution that enables mobile business professionals to leverage the full breadth of desktop-based unified communications functionality directly from their Nokia Eseries smartphones. Using the solution, which is built on CallWave's WebMessenger Mobile for Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS), smartphone users can see which colleagues are online at any given time, choose from a variety of communications options including IM, VoIP calls, SMS and email, and easily escalate chat sessions to VoIP calls and collaboration. CallWave is demonstrating this solution in the WebMessenger booth, number 1112, and the Nokia booth, number 421, at Interop New York, at the Jacob Javits Center on September 17-18.
CallWave delivers this solution through integration of its WebMessenger Mobile for Microsoft OCS solution to Nokia's Intellisync Call Connect for Cisco Call Manager solution on Nokia Eseries devices. Only CallWave's WebMessenger federates IM and presence technology across all leading IM backbones, including corporate networks such as Microsoft OCS, and extends Microsoft OCS out to Nokia smartphones.
"Mobility is key to the future of unified communications," said Joe Naylor, senior vice president of sales, CallWave. "As enterprise adoption of desktop unified communications tools ramps, pressure is mounting on IT to extend the same capabilities to mobile professionals. Doing so not only enriches collaboration across the distributed enterprise and maximizes enterprise investment in smartphones and VoIP solutions, it has the added benefit of helping the CIO and IT department add value to the business community they serve."
CallWave's WebMessenger Mobile for Microsoft OCS solution can be deployed on-premise or as a hosted service. Key features and benefits of WebMessenger Mobile for Microsoft OCS in conjunction with the Nokia Intellisync Call Connect solution for Cisco Call Manager include:
-- Secure, reliable and efficient extension of enterprise presence and instant messaging to mobile devices
