RIM ties in corporate drones with VoIP over Wi-Fi

No escape from Mobile Voice System 5

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Along with a new handset, RIM yesterday announced Mobile Voice System 5, which brings VoIP calling over Wi-Fi for enterprise users, with number mapping courtesy of Cisco.

The new Mobile Voice System integrates with Cisco’s Unified Communications Manager and can map a Wi-Fi-connected Blackberry to a desktop phone number. Thus you can make and receive calls as though you were sitting at a desk, without paying the network operator a penny.

Blackberry users won’t be limited to the office either. Any Wi-Fi point will do, so staff won’t be able to escape from their desktop phones as long as they’re near a hotspot with decent internet connectivity.

Calls are routed over the internet to the company’s PBX, so users can transfer calls and connect to internal extensions. The system also offers the opportunity to record calls, apply calling restrictions, and all the other things a PBX can do these days.

Mobile Voice System 5 will be available "later this year". ®
