Esnatech Enables UC Among Various PBXs and the Apple iPad
Two of the hottest things happening now in communications are the Apple iPad and unified communications. Now they're coming together in a new way through the introduction by Esna Technologies Inc. of the Mobile Unified Communication Client software for the Apple iPad.
The Esnatech software links a user's iPad to his or her office voice network to enable live communications, integrating enterprise presence, mobility, unified messaging, and enterprise voice to mobile devices. It's available as a free download for a limited time from the Apple Apps Store.
In fact, UC Client enables fixed-to-mobile integration between a wide range of wireless devices and enterprise PBX systems from AASTRA, Asterisk suppliers, Avaya, Cisco, eON, Iwatsu, Mitel, Nortel, Toshiba, Shortel and others.
"With the release of our newest Mobile UC Client software for Apple's iPad, we provide iPad users with the opportunity to experience full, rich, and live enterprise communications directly on their iPad," says Davide Petramala, vice president of business development at Esnatech. "Integrated with the Esnatech UC server platform, Telephony Office-Linx, iPad users can manage all of their office communications such as find me/follow me, presence, and instant messaging directly from their device. This once again demonstrates Esnatech's market leadership in interoperability as we extend our UC services to any telephone system, any business application, and now to any mobile and wireless device including Apple's iPhone, the iPod touch and now the iPad.'
As discussed in the October 2009 issue of Unified Communications Magazine, a TMC publication, three key values Esnatech has long espoused are mobility, presence and messaging. And the fact that the company offers a software-only solution and has expertise in integration helps bring those three tenets together.
