is-phone is world’s first softphone certified by Avaya, Nortel, Siemens and 3Com with video conferencing and SRTP/TLS support

(PresseBox) (Zürich, ) iscoord ag, developer of award winning integrated softphone technology, announced official certifications for is-phone from the leading PBX providers Avaya, Nortel, Siemens and 3Com (Cisco and others tested, certifications in progress). The new version includes SRTP/TLS support and has full video ability, offering multipoint video conferencing.

The interoperability of the established, integrated is-phone softphone solutions has been certified by Avaya (SIP Enablement Services Server), Nortel (CS 1000 E/S/M version 4.5 & 5), Siemens (HiPath 3000/4000/5000/8000) and 3Com (VCX platform) for full interoperability with the respective IP PBX solutions offered by these major manufacturers. iscoord is looking to finalize further certifications including Cisco (Unified Communications Manager 6). is-phone now features SRTP (Secure Real-time Transport Protocol) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) support and allows the user to start multipoint video conferences with up to 4 participants. These features, which are unique to is-phone, offer a clear advantage and added-value for companies who like to integrate proven, integrated IP telephony into their existing infrastructure without the investment need into additional servers.

is-phone is available for and integrated into IBM Lotus Notes 6/7/8, IBM Lotus Sametime 7.5.1/8, Microsoft Outlook 2003/2005 and Microsoft Live Messenger.

"We support the entire IBM collaboration platform range as well as Microsoft communication solutions", explains Markus Sieger, CEO and president of iscoord ag. "We listened to our customers and focused our development efforts to offer a fully client based and integrated softphone. In the Professional Version is-phone meets highest security standards whereby the Enterprise Version takes functionality one step beyond by offering multipoint video conferencing. We believe that our software-based approach gives our clients significant added-value as there is no need for additional server investments and there is independence in selecting the UC platform and PBX environment. Our clients enjoy full flexibility and can integrate our certified IP telephony technology, awarded with several IBM and other awards, into their existing or planned hard- and software environment which guarantees a low TCO and a high ROI."

Rolf Kuster, Head of Development and Support at iscoord ag, adds: "Within the certification process, our technology has proven its compatibility. We focused our efforts to give our customers freedom of choice and to offer a real alternative or add-on to existing hard- and softphone technologies. is-phone softphones meet the needs of IT departments for a secure, scalable, remotely manageable and integrated tool implemented as plug-in into their existing infrastructure and due to the high integration, users can manage voice and video calls within their existing communication solutions."

iscoord will showcase the full is-phone softphone product range at Lotusphere 2008 (January 20-24, 2008, booth #711) and VoiceCon 2008 (March 17-20, 2008, booth #1037) in Orlando.
