Swyx Enters Fixed Mobile Convergence Market

IP PBX vendor Swyx has announced the launch of SwyxMobile, its FMC (Fixed Mobile Convergence) and Mobile Extension (Mobex) solution that supports both small and large businesses. This will enable its channel partners to access the currently poorly serviced FMC market for SME business.

Gunter Junk, CEO at Swyx comments, “FMC & Mobile Extension is fast becoming the new ‘must have’ application for organisations, both large and small. However most commercially available offers in the market today are targeted at the larger enterprise – both in terms of operation, implementation and price – but SwyxMobile will allow a highly featured yet cost-effective solution to be offered to businesses with as few as 5 employees, as well as being scalable to suit the needs of larger enterprise customers. The ability to integrate this capability into their existing Unified Communication environment using just one number for each employee, regardless of the device, will improve both mobility and productivity. ”

FMC technology enables users to use a single mobile-telephone handset to be used both as a mobile phone on the mobile GSM network, as well operating as an extension directly connected to their Swyx IP PBX. This allows users to access and use many key features and capabilities of their office telephone/UC system, whilst needing only a single handset.

Junk Continues, “Using this technology, businesses will not only save money on deskphone handsets, call charges and superfluous hardware, they can also create a “virtual office”, maximising the reachability of their staff by creating a flexible workforce that can be more available, more often to their customers, suppliers and colleagues.

This new development presents an exciting new opportunity for our reseller partners that can offer enhanced value to customers that are considering FMC today and peace of mind to existing and future customers who may wish to adopt the technology in the future. Compatibility with FMC is just one of a number developments that Swyx is currently undergoing to support the investment that our resellers have made in our products and it clearly demonstrates the power, flexibility and revenue opportunities that an open platform IP telephone solution can deliver”.
