BlackBerry MVS 5

Following up on their announcement at BlackBerry World this year, RIM has announced that BlackBerry MVS is now available for Avaya Phone Systems. The release of MVS 5 is available in North America and the UK for systems using Avaya Aura 6.1, Avaya Communications Manager, Avaya CS1000 Communication Server, Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Mitel Communications Director.

BlackBerry MVS 5 brings together the desk phone and smartphone to enable employees to securely and cost effectively make and take desk phone calls practically anywhere in the world on their BlackBerry® smartphones. Calls can be made over cellular or Wi-Fi networks with automatic, prompted or manual handoff between these networks based on employee or administrator preferences.

Employees use the same phone interface on their BlackBerry smartphones that they use for cellular calls and enjoy the convenience of single number reach, extension dialing and ad hoc conferencing.

Companies benefit by having smartphone calls managed and controlled by BlackBerry MVS 5 and routed through the company's phone system for potential savings on long distance and international roaming charges, and adherence to company policies and regulatory compliance requirements.
