AudioCodes, a provider of solutions that enable enterprises and service providers to transition to all-IP voice networks, expanded its One Voice offering with a new cloud-based enterprise mobility solution suite for business customers. The solution, delivered from the Amazon Web Services cloud, includes mobile clients tightly coupled with a delivery platform for secure connectivity, management, and monitoring. It enables service providers to offer their business customers anywhere, anytime, any device mobile communications services over data networks.
The first applications in the Enterprise Mobility solution suite include MobilityPlus Business Edition (BE) and VocaNOM. MobilityPlus BE is based on home-grown technologies, which include a proven voice engine and connectivity to social networks and the public cloud. The application leverages AudioCodes' existing tier one service provider customers for over-the-top (OTT) applications, including Bezeq, Vonage, GVT, Telefonica Argentina, Liberty Global, and others who are using the MobilityPlus Consumer Edition (CE), formerly known as VMAS. VocaNOM leverages the success of AudioCodes voice recognition technology, which has been installed during the past 18 months in dozens of Israeli enterprises.
The MobilityPlus BE enables employees to communicate with colleagues from their smartphones by initiating VoIP calls over Wi-Fi and cellular data networks. Connecting with the enterprise's PBX or IP-PBX, the application offers features such as advanced dialing, smart contacts, enhanced presence, instant messaging, and one-number reach. MobilityPlus BE supports high-definition voice quality, uses the most popular wideband coders, such as Opus and Silk, and leverages AudioCodes SBC products and core voice engine technologies to ensure end-to-end HD VoIP quality. It can be deployed as an add-on to existing PBXs.
VocaNOM, a speech-enabled directory search and dial solution, allows mobile or office callers to state the name of the person or department they wish to call and be automatically transferred to the requested party.
"One Voice for Enterprise Mobility allows enterprises to enhance their existing telephony systems with a mobility solution that increases employee accessibility and productivity while benefitting from outstanding management and provisioning tools," said Shabtai Adlersberg, president and CEO of AudioCodes, in a statement. "Furthermore, the cloud service implementation allows hosters to quickly roll out new services to the market. As demand for these services increases, they can choose to either expand the service in the cloud or migrate it to their own data center."
