LAS VEGAS, Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Metaswitch Forum 2011 -- CloudTC, a software innovator in business applications and IP telephony, today announced that the CloudTC Glass 1000, the industry's smartest IP phone, now includes a visual voicemail application that is fully compatible with the Metaswitch VoIP solution. The announcement was made at the Metaswitch Forum 2011, the annual gathering of the Metaswitch user community, taking place from October 3-6. Senior executives from CloudTC are here in booth #301 demonstrating the unique attributes of this fully integrated, smart IP communications platform for the enterprise.
"We are excited to return to the Metaswitch Forum to show the exciting enhancements to the Glass 1000 smart IP phone, including adding support for visual voicemail based on the Metaswitch CommPortal Mobile application," said Cheryln Chin, CloudTC vice president of marketing. "Since successfully completing interoperability testing and becoming a Metaswitch Mosaic Certified Partner earlier this year, we have seen significant interest in the Glass 1000 from Metaswitch users and look forward to meeting with them at this year's Forum."
Visual voicemail (voicemail with a visual interface that enables a user to select from a list of messages for playback and obtain a transcript of each message) is an indispensable business tool for mobile phone users, and Glass now brings it to the desktop. Market research firm Synovate surveyed 800 subscribers and found that 75% of the respondents find visual voicemail "somewhat-to-extremely interesting," with over one-third stating they would retrieve more messages if using visual voicemail. This popular feature joins a long list of capabilities that Metaswitch customers are able to access on the Glass 1000:
- Up to 6 lines with call appearances
- Large 8.9" (1024 x 600) Color Touch Screen LCD
- Engaging graphical user interface and navigation menus

Infrastructure vendors, OEMs, systems integrators, and VoIP service providers have enthusiastically embraced Glass because of the benefits of requiring less time to market, lower investment in R&D, and ability to customize phone features as well as application suites for business users.
