Allworx Introduces New SIP Mobile Phone Client and System Software 7.5 at IT Expo 2013 in Miami, Fla.

(GlobeNewswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Jan. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allworx, a Windstream company, today introduced Reach – its new mobile phone client – and System Software 7.5. The new products will be highlighted in Windstream's booth #506 at IT Expo 2013, being held Jan. 30 to Feb. 1 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Fla.

Allworx Reach is a virtualized Allworx handset that is hosted on an Allworx server and designed to run on mobile devices that use Apple's iOS or Android operating systems. It provides a robust level of feature functionality and integration as part of the Allworx family of IP-based PBXs. Reach is an Allworx-created solution designed exclusively to work on Allworx systems. It integrates seamlessly with new or existing Allworx products and requires no additional Allworx hardware.

"The Allworx Reach and System Software 7.5 will fundamentally change the way our customers use their Allworx systems," said Chris Hasenauer, vice president and general manager of Allworx, an award-winning developer of Internet Protocol based (IP) phones and phone systems for businesses. "Our customers are looking for innovative solutions for unifying their communications activities across multiple platforms, and they want those solutions delivered in a cost effective manner. The products we are announcing today meet those goals and will offer our customers a clear competitive advantage." With Reach, you can simultaneously make and receive multiple calls. Almost every Allworx function is at your fingertips, including seamless conferencing, transferring, parking, or holding calls. You can listen to your voicemails in any order you choose and Reach allows you to place calls from the Allworx system contacts list or your local contacts. There is a comprehensive history list that tracks every inbound, outbound or missed call. And best of all, you'll see the status of other Allworx handsets or other Reach users before calling.

Allworx will also feature another new offering at the Windstream booth Allworx System Software 7.5. This newest Allworx software release continues to build on the rich history of product enhancements that has become a key foundation behind the popularity of the Allworx family of IP PBXs. By adding a new level of customer-focused functionality, such as multiple call handling, voicemail messaging, presence and user device status, plus tight integration with contacts and call history, Allworx demonstrates again that it provides advanced features based on Allworx customer demands.  One function of the Allworx System Software 7.5 is Shared Call Appearances, which allows co-workers in a PBX environment to now avoid transferring calls when a simple hold will suffice. In addition, there is a greatly improved park capability that provides callers with a wealth of information about calls they or other callers have parked.

For administrators, there are new User Permission Levels that allow access to day-to-day administrative functions along with enhanced security level passwords and strong user password protections.

"We are continuously making updates to our phone systems to enhance the user's experience," said Hasenauer. "Our Allworx System Software 7.5 release delivers on our commitment to effortless communications and gives our customers many new features to simplify their business operations."

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
