AN PC-PHONE DESKTOP CLIENT FOR AARENET VOIP SYSTEMS
Aarenet developed and released a VoIP desktop client with integrated auto provisioning to enhance the end user experience. The client combines a comfortable VoIP client with UM functionalities like chat and video calling features and enables calls from the desktop pc using the fixed phone line anywhere where private network or public internet connection is available. Contacts of Outlook mail program or LDAP server connectivity integrate existing contacts into the client for easy dialling. Furthermore, simplified secure provisioning automates the registration process and ensures a full integration with system features.
Frank Remmers, Sales Director at Aarenet: “desktop clients and smartphones apps have passed the experimental usage and are now considered as valid solutions together with hardware based deskphones. There are many commercial solutions available and to ensure that the different features are tested and operating correctly we have decided to offer an integrated VoIP feature client. If required by the solution provider, it is even possible to develop a personalised version with channel customisation of the client. This will include adaptation of the product name and skin colour in line with the corporate appearance of the channel partner. This customisation will further strengthen the brand identity between the end user and the provider.
We consider the end user experience and the easy auto setup of the desktop client as the most important user benefits. Our desktop client “an PC-Phone” covers both items and ensures a secure connection into the Aarenet VoIP system. Activing the client is as simple as entering a username and password and relieves the customer from entering SIP credentials and other system settings. User features like video call, system chat functionality and Click2Dial from internet browsing simplify the use and provides powerful comfort features. The application can be used for both office based and travelling employees. We will continue to develop our mobility clients and will implement additional features to further develop the end-user experience.”
Together with the smartphone clients for ios and Android (“an IP-Phone”) and the broad range of integrated IP Phones from prime manufacturers, Aarenet supports a broad range of end-user devices and solutions. In further development stages more client features will be implemented to grow the system in line with the market development and requirements.
“an PC-Phone” is available for commercial deployment with the release of the system software 6.0.
