AltiGen's MaxMobile for Lync and iFusion SmartStations Certified by Aruba Networks

April 13, 2012

AltiGen Communications, a provider of Microsoft VoIP business phone systems and Unified Communications solutions, announced that its MaxMobile for Lync and iFusion SmartStations have been certified interoperable with Aruba Networks' Wi-Fi infrastructure. The certification was carried out under ArubaEdge Technology Partner Program.

"Microsoft Lync is transforming the economics of unified communications, and partners like AltiGen help us extend those savings to desktop telephony," said Michael Tennefoss, Aruba Networks' head of Strategic Partnerships, in a statement.

"Replacing wired VoIP phones with smartphones running on Aruba's Wi-Fi networks and equipped with AltiGen's MaxMobile for Lync and iFusion SmartStations can yield huge monetary and carbon footprint savings," Tennefoss added.

MaxMobile is an enterprise voice mobility solution for Microsoft Lync. It features a native client for popular smartphone devices such as Apple iOS (iPhone, iPad), Google Android, RIM BlackBerry, and Windows Phone 7.

Earlier this year, AltiGen announced that AltiGen’s MaxACD Contact Center passed Microsoft Lync ISV Qualification Program requirements. AltiGen's MaxACD Contact Center for Lync helps provide a simple to deploy, simple to use, and simple to manage feature-rich call center for Lync.

The iFusion SmartStation is a multi-function desktop docking station designed to pair the Apple iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 and 4S, and features an ergonomic handset and business-grade speakerphone. The docking station can seamlessly integrate with voice-enabled applications such as Apple Siri, Apple FaceTime, Skype, AltiGen's MaxMobile for Lync, Cisco Mobile, and Avaya one-X Mobile.

The ArubaEdge Technology Partner Program focuses on ensuring the reliable operation of multi-vendor mobility solutions.  

Aruba's innovative fingerprinting technology identifies Microsoft Lync unified communications data, voice, and video streams as they flow over Wi-Fi. The network can automatically and dynamically configure to deliver quality of service – on an application-by-application, device-by-device basis to ensure highly reliable delivery of those streams.

Capitalizing on the benefits of Lync over Wi-Fi requires an ecosystem of hardware and application solutions.

"The performance of MaxMobile for Lync is dependent on the quality and capabilities of the Wi-Fi infrastructure over which it operates," said Niel Levonius, senior director of Corporate Strategy, AltiGen, in a statement. "Aruba's industry-leading, application-aware Wi-Fi solutions make it possible for us to deliver high-quality Microsoft Lync services to smartphone devices."
