iscoord announces official interoperability certification of its is-phone UC software client portfolio with Metaswitch Networks
Designed to propose a simpler, cost-effective and ready-to-deploy approach, is-phone products provide rich Unified Communications features to companies of any size, with enterprise telephony, HD audio & video conferencing, instant messaging with multi-connectors support like MSN, Jabber, XMPP or Sametime, presence, file transfer and directories integration with MS Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino/Sametime or LDAP. As iscoord exposes a unique portfolio of UC products seamlessly integrated in both Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes/Sametime, Metaswitch users can immediately take advantages of their rich enterprise telephony capabilities in their collaboration suites and can even extend these UC capabilities to mobile devices.
"We are glad that is-phone product line has been certified by Metaswitch" said Christophe Remillet, Head of Business Development at iscoord. "The UC market was strongly pushing us to get an official interoperability program in place. In North America, we are seeing a growing demand to provide a cost-effective and simpler UC solution for the Metaswitch user base, starting with a roll-out phase in the range of few days, no configuration hassles and fast customizing as well as rebranding opportunities for e.g. telecom operators."
"We are pleased to add iscoord's is-phone product line to the growing list of Metaswitch Mosaic Certified solutions", said Stefan Knight, VP Strategic Alliances at Metaswitch Networks. "By certifying the is-phone through the Mosaic Program, Metaswitch customers have access to a UC solution that delivers the advance commercial features available through our hosted PBX solution."
"We see a tremendous potential when combining our is-phone product line and the Metaswitch platform" adds Rolf Kuster, Head of Development and Support at iscoord. "Metaswitch customers can now quickly set up turn-key UC solutions on their desktop, but also on their smartphone and tablet devices. This opens new mobility capabilities as well as empowering social/enterprise communications in a more flexible and performing way for Metaswitch users."
