Avaya and Nokia have announced the next phase of their strategic collaboration with a product 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.
With a single mobile device, 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) - and vice versa.
Avaya says this gives workers a more convenient and productive way to manage their communications, while giving organisations a more cost-effective approach to enterprise mobility.
The Avaya one-X Mobile Dual Mode Edition combines internet-protocol-based applications with Nokia Eseries business devices - the Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia E70 models - to deliver the full benefits of FMC. The offering includes a dual-mode device with Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) capabilities that can make and receive calls over both mobile and wireless local area networks, both on and off a company campus.
