According to Forbes, freelancers now make up 35 percent of US workers, and businesses of all sizes are also letting their employees work remotely as communications solutions and the technology to support remote access to company resources becomes more available. The release of Linkus, a mobile softphone VoIP client from Yeastar, will address this growing trend by allowing users to make VoIP phone calls through business phone systems using their mobile device.

Yeastar designs and develops communications equipment including VoIP PBX systems and VoIP gateways for the small and medium enterprises (SME) segment. The new Linkus mobile client has been specifically designed for easy implementation of remote connectivity under one phone system between offices and their workforce no matter where they happen to be.

The Yeastar S-Series PBX telephone systems gives SMEs with up to 500 users mobile functionality so they can use their mobile devices like an office desk phone extension, giving their remote workers access.

"We’re excited to add a new mobility feature for businesses that are deploying our Yeastar S-Series PBX. The new Linkus mobile client easily connects remote offices and workers, road warriors, and mobile employees all under one phone system and using only phone number for both deskphones and Apple or Android mobile phones," said Alan Shen, CEO of Yeastar.

With Linkus businesses can lower their overall mobile phone costs by making and receiving VoIP phone calls through the company PBX with mobile data or Wi-Fi. This feature is delivered through a single phone number that is always available to customers and other members of the company by providing a virtual company desk phone any time they are away from their desk or for remote workers.

The Linkus platform and S-Series VoIP PBX can be synced with mobile devices with iOS 8.0 or higher and Android 4.4 or higher. It is compatible with standard network protocols including SIP FRC3261, TCP/IP/UDP, RTP/SRTP/RTCP, HTTP/HTTPS and it can be used on 2G/3G/4G or Wi-Fi networks.

Some of the other features of Linkus include: being able to set up ring strategy for Linkus and the desktop phone; select different outbound routes for local/long-distance/international destinations; call availability indicator and corporate directory integration with lookup; and PBX features that can be configured for call transfer, call forwarding, call waiting, DND and others.

Remote workers cost businesses less, but in order to make it work the right technology has to be deployed throughout the organization. This requires constant connectivity integrated across different platforms and channels while providing corporate phone features. Linkus and the S-Series VoIP PBX system bring mobility and corporate resources together for easy access on mobile devices.
