Alteva is now offering the ability to switch calls between fixed and wireless devices on its hosted VoIP network. The company is calling the fixed/mobile convergence (FMC) service Alteva Anywhere.
Alteva Anywhere allows users to use one number for all incoming and outgoing calls, regardless of the phone used.
The company said users can make calls from a mobile device using a four-digit extension, move calls seamlessly from a desk phone to a mobile handset, or move a call from a mobile to a fixed phone, without any detection or interruption of the call, Alteva said.
The service does not require the service provider to have a formal business or technical integration with the mobile network, Alteva said.
Key benefits include:
- Only one business number is needed to reach all phones simultaneously.
- Universal features – users have access to all of their business features, regardless of which device they use to receive or make a call.
- Works independently of the user’s mobile network – no relationship with the user’s provider is required.
- Moves a call among devices – users can enjoy voice call continuity by moving ongoing calls from one phone to another without hanging up.
Alteva Anywhere works with all phone types including desk, PBX, mobile, PSTN and soft clients across all legacy and next-generation architectures (2G/3G/4G). The solution is included free with the purchase of an Alteva Platinum License and is available directly from Alteva, or through resellers and distributors offering Alteva’s hosted solutions.
