Ubiquisys (News - Alert), a developer of multi-mode and intelligent small cells, jointly with Quortus, a company related to edge-based application development, recently announced the demonstration of mobile PBX based on small cells technology, at the Mobile World Congress (News - Alert).
This joint venture contains Ubiquisys small cell powered by EdgeCentrix software from Curtis. The result is a high quality, ultra sophisticated and user friendly all mobile PBX (News - Alert) for businesses worldwide. This new system eliminates the requirement of desk phones and gives operators a compelling offer for small to medium business segments.
This joint solution combines Ubiquisys small cell with an integrated platform for computing, which is based on state of the art Intel (News - Alert) architecture. EdgeCentrix software from Quortus allows the core functionality of network with local handling capabilities. Together this combination forms a powerful yet simple PBX mobile that is able to handle comprehensive data and voice requests. This mechanism empowers mobile phones to such an extent that they are able to deal with various functions that were an erstwhile domain of IP desktop phones. It includes conference calling, dual ringing, call transfers, hunt-groups and ‘find me’ services.
There is no longer any need for downloaded clients to handsets for accessing such useful services. The remote provision and distribution of application on smart cell platforms is through Intel AppUp SMB services with Intel Hybrid software Cloud platform. Service providers can now deliver cloud-computing benefits through distributed networking devices. Businesses can now easily develop a truly mobile workforce by doing away with their fixed PBX lines. Employees can use their existing cell phones instead of desk phones for meeting their communication requirements.
This device improves productivity of the workforce through user satisfaction. Local call routing occurs whenever an employee calls their contact using the contact list of their mobile device, this does away with the need to use of macro network for making phone calls. This is possible only when the receiver is within the range of smart cells. In cases when this does not occur then the usual macro network use comes into play. For the end users this forms a seamless experience and for enterprises, this signifies optimal call routing costs, as an added benefit. There are even benefits inherent for MVNOs and call operators. For them this is once in lifetime chance of tapping in the enterprise markets with emphasis on SMB segment.
Pete Keevill co-founder of Ubiquisys and vice-president, Engineering, believes that this new Smart Cell is synonymous with reliable coverage with computing power that delivers advanced applications and functions. With acceleration in the field of mobile cell deployment in the recent years, that time is not far away when the mobile devices will form the main basis of communication for new age companies.
