Company Demonstrates Softphone Application Delivering Enterprise-Class Features to Third-Party Devices
LAS VEGAS, May 2, 2006 / Interop Booth No. 316 -- SpectraLink Corp. (NASDAQ:SLNK), the leader in workplace wireless telephony, is demonstrating the ability to port SpectraLink's industry-leading PBX integration technology to third-party devices including dual-mode (Wi-Fi/cellular) handsets. This demonstration shows how SpectraLink's unique voice over IP (VoIP) gateway technology can be utilized to deliver business telephone features to both on-site and off-site mobile employees while leveraging an enterprise's existing telephone system. This exciting move offers emerging wireless voice technologies the benefit of SpectraLink's extensive experience in Wi-Fi telephony and furthers the company's technological leadership position in the Wi-Fi telephony market.
SpectraLink is demonstrating a softphone application using SpectraLink Radio Protocol (SRP), a thin-client protocol developed specifically to provide optimal performance and voice quality over converged wireless networks. The softphone application can be run on any technically-suitable voice client such as Wi-Fi-enabled PDAs and smartphones. SRP enables third-party devices to make and receive telephone calls via the enterprise PBX over a broadband connection to a SpectraLink NetLink Telephony Gateway connected with the PBX at the customer premises. The NetLink Telephony Gateway's unique digital interface technology makes it possible to extend the advanced features and functions of a company's phone switch, such as call transfer, conferencing, and voicemail integration, to the end-user device.
"This demonstration shows the value of SpectraLink's PBX integration capabilities in delivering mobile voice solutions beyond our market-leading Wi-Fi handsets," said John Elms, SpectraLink president and CEO. "What we're offering is far more extensible than a multi-mode cellular product. Today, we are furthering our commitment to delivering business-class wireless voice to nearly any communications device deployed within the enterprise."
SpectraLink is featuring a live demonstration of its softphone application running on a dual-mode client over a Wi-Fi network at its Interop booth (no. 316).
SpectraLink, the leader in workplace wireless telephony, delivers the power of mobile voice and messaging applications to businesses worldwide. Seamlessly integrating with VoIP and traditional telephony platforms, SpectraLink's scalable technology provides instant access to people and business-critical information. SpectraLink handsets free on-premises employees to be more accessible, productive and responsive. For more information, visit http://www.spectralink.com/ or call 1 800 676 5465.
