  • For inbound and outbound calls it can do: start a second call, place call on hold, swap between calls, transfer calls, start 3 way conferencing
  • For outbound calls from GSM mobile phone, calls can show users fixed phone extension as One-Number, instead of mobile phone number to the called party (hide mobile identity)
  • For outbound calls from Innovaphone ipbx to mobile networks it can save call costs at around 80%, so calls costs only 2-3 cents/minute to mobile networks instead of 15 cents or more
  • Quescom Gateway also sends SMS messages from any windows computer or browser
  • with a third party client software it is also possible to reduce roaming charges by dialing phone numbers from mobile devices using transparent callbacks
  • CTI function doing click-to-dial from any webpage

Summary

QuesCom Mobility Service Pack is a software solution based on the QuesCom Gateways to deliver a One Number reachability whether the user is in the office or on the road. Users receive all calls and faxes on a single number (DDI). Not only does the user receive his office calls on his mobile, but all his calls appear to originate from his desk phone. The user's physical location and mobile phone number remains private. The caller always dials the same extension , the called user can pick up the call with any associated phone.

Furthermore not only the "one number" reachability is here the benefit , also the mobile phones turns into a PBX extension.

The GSM Gateway is optional and not a must when using the Mobility Services Pack.
