SAN FRANCISCO and PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 2600hz and CloudTC today announced the integration of Whistle, the distributed scalable VoIP platform, with the CloudTC Glass 1000, the industry's smartest IP phone. The combined solution offers enterprise users enhanced business productivity apps, such as teleconferencing and call transcription, alongside advanced telephony features, such as one-touch dialing and instant screen sharing. The two companies will demonstrate this powerful business communications solution at the upcoming ITEXPO West in Austin, Texas, at booth #210, from September 13-15. In addition, 2600hz is now an authorized distributor of CloudTC Glass smart IP phones, and will begin offering this integrated solution through a beta program to its VoIP carrier customers.
"We are excited to partner with CloudTC and enable business customers to deploy a hosted VoIP solution faster while spending less time managing infrastructure," said 2600hz CEO and co-founder Darren Schreiber. "Whistle and Glass make an unbeatable combination."
Whistle is a carrier-grade, distributed VoIP applications platform that provides the security and scalability of a hosted solution for organizations ranging from small businesses to the largest enterprises. The CloudTC Glass 1000 incorporates the benefits of the Android operating system, combining voice calls with advanced productivity features. VoIP software providers like 2600hz have enthusiastically embraced Glass because of its benefits of requiring less time to market, lower investment in R&D, and the ability to customize phone features as well as application suites for business users. An example is the 2600hz Hosted Conferencing whApp (Whistle App), which allows the conference call host to view a pop-up display on the Glass 1000 8.9 inch high-resolution color touchscreen LCD. The display lists all conference call participants and enables the host to manage the call by muting speakers, splitting calls into subgroups, or removing disruptive callers.
"The Hosted Conferencing whApp is a perfect feature to illustrate the advanced capabilities that make the Glass 1000 unique," said Anthony Gioeli, CloudTC Chief Executive Officer. "Our large color touchscreen, intuitive user interface, and high-quality, high definition audio all combine to transform the mundane conference call into an efficient and manageable experience."
