Aastra Unveils New Virtual PBX Solution Tailored for the Higher Education Market
Aastra, a provider of virtual PBX services, recently introduced both its Clearspan unified communications solution and the Aastra BluStar Ecosystem for video and mobility collaboration.
While both solutions were developed from the ground up in order to meet the individual needs of the higher education market, the Hosted Clearspan UC solution is offered by Internet2, an operator of the nation’s fastest, coast-to-coast research and education network. It provides all of the applications an institution’s employee’s need at any of the locations where they work and on any of the devices they use.
In addition to offering classic virtual PBX functionality, the solution also provides a rich set of enhanced services including unified messaging, fixed mobile convergence, interactive voice response, conferencing, collaboration and call center applications.
Employees leveraging Clearspan can easily make and receive calls from any device at any location with only one phone number, one dial plan, one voice mailbox, and a unified set of features.
Additionally, the Aastra BluStar Ecosystem consists of the 8000i Desktop Media Phone and BluStar clients for PC, iPad and iPhone. It offers organizations a comprehensive, end-to-end UC solution with a versatile client that can be used across devices. The solution also offers a totally natural collaboration experience and fully embraces trends such as BYOD, helping users work together more effectively.
In the near future, the company will continue to unveil a bunch of new collaboration applications designed to increase flexibility and improve productivity amongst workforces throughout the globe.
