VoIP Anywhere streamlines VoIP bandwidth requirements to allow VoIP calls over Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G connections, turning smart devices into fully enabled Virtual PBX VoIP extensions
SAN JOSE, CALIF. (September 13, 2011)– In today's global economy, business owners often must take and make business-related calls no matter where they are. While people rely on their mobile phones to avoid missing any important calls, they must balance the need to stay in touch against high roaming costs while preserving the business-grade quality of their calls. Meanwhile, dialing out from a mobile phone shows the user's personal caller ID and not the company's phone number, causing confusion about who is calling and how to call back.
Today, Virtual PBX, inventor and leading supplier of hosted PBX services, announced its newest enhancement to Virtual PBX Complete – VoIP Anywhere. Virtual PBX Complete with VoIP Anywhere allows customers to use their smart phones and computers as VoIP handsets with complete business phone system capabilities. Now, clients can use VoIP to reduce or eliminate roaming charges from anywhere in the world, and outbound calls include the company's caller ID information. Additionally, the company announced support for HD Voice for HD-capable devices.
"Our launch of Virtual PBX Complete has generated tremendous demand from our customers. As they embrace our system, they are increasingly seeking the freedom to access their VoIP business features on any device, wherever they are," said Greg Brashier, COO of Virtual PBX. "By introducing Virtual PBX Complete with VoIP Anywhere, we are delivering that freedom and flexibility to carry their business extension anywhere in the world."
As part of Virtual PBX's commitment to open systems, no proprietary software is required. VoIP Anywhere capabilities can be accessed through the use of any standard softphone, such as those available for Android phones, iPhones and computers. VoIP Anywhere allows such devices to appear as VoIP extensions in the Virtual PBX system, so calls to and from the softphone have full access to all system features, such as business caller ID for outbound calls, call recording, call transfers, presence management and reporting. Virtual PBX has reduced bandwidth requirements for VoIP calls, allowing high-quality calls to be placed over even modest data connections, including 3G, 4G and WiFi.
Virtual PBX Complete with VoIP Anywhere provides customers with the freedom to choose where and when to take their calls without worrying about extra fees. Clients travelling internationally, for example, often can access Wi-Fi from their branch offices or hotels. By using their smart phones as VoIP phones, they can receive business calls with no roaming charges and get a U.S. dial tone to make outbound calls, resulting in huge savings over international dialing rates.
New System Features
- Calls from ANY device: With Virtual PBX Complete with VoIP Anywhere, turning your cell phone or computer into a full-featured VoIP phone is simple. Using any standard softphone and a minimum of a 3G connection, any device can be accessed through your existing Virtual PBX number.
- U.S dial tone: VoIP Anywhere provides a U.S. dial tone while avoiding high international dialing rates. Dialing a U.S. number from an international location can even be free with Virtual PBX's flat-rate packages.
- HD voice: The new VoIP Anywhere system negotiates HD voice on any HD device. If the device you are using supports HD, then the call can automatically be connected with HD quality.
- Business caller ID: Calls made from a Virtual PBX extension can send the company's phone number for caller ID. With VoIP Anywhere, mobile users no longer need to worry about giving out their personal cellular numbers while making business calls, and contacts know how to get back in touch with the company, not just the individual.
