Ascendent, a subsidiary of RIM, announced the certification of Voice Mobility Suite 4.5 by Sprint today, which means that fixed mobile convergence is coming to Sprint enterprise BlackBerry users. Ascendent VMS v4.5 integrates with BlackBerry Mobile Voice System (MVS) Services on the BES to provide menu-driven desk phone features and give IT admins better control of their mobile usage and costs.
“As more organizations look to ‘cut the cord,’ they will be looking for a solution that seamlessly leverages their existing telephony infrastructure while providing the capabilities and controls afforded by the BlackBerry platform and Ascendent VMS,” said Theron Dodson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Ascendent Systems. “Sprint and Ascendent Systems have enjoyed a longstanding partnership and we’re pleased to be working together to bring this next-generation solution to customers.”
Exciting news for Sprint subscribers looking to trash their land line and go full BlackBerry. Does anyone out there currently use Ascendent’s VMS 4.5 at their company? What’s the most important fixed mobile convergence feature for you?
