Ericsson Adds Mobile Phones to PBX

Ericsson has introduced their Mobility Gateway, a PBX add-on that extends PBX functions to mobile phones saying companies can deploy the gateway with any PBX or IP-PBX that supports the Q-SIG signaling interface. The gateway allows companies to support desk phones and mobile phones from the same infrastructure.

Mobile users who are supported by the gateway can take advantage of typical PBX features, including conferencing, call transfer and unified messaging, Ericsson said. The features can be accessed from a traditional mobile phone, smart phone or laptop computer, the company said.

The Ericsson Mobility Gateway is part of Ericsson MX-One, a platform that integrates data, voice and mobile communication into a server-based platform.
