Sprint Combines Your Desk Phone And Cell Phone

Sprint announced yesterday the availability of Sprint Wireless Integration. This feature combines the tools of your desk phone with the mobility of your cellphone. This new feature was made possible by integrating Avaya “Extension to Cellular” capabilities and new Sprint network advancements. Here are some of the detailed features of Sprint Wireless Integration…


* One phone number with simultaneous ring to both the desk phone and mobile phone (using the existing desk phone number)
* One voicemail inbox using the enterprise voicemail platform
* Abbreviated (e.g., four-digit) intra-company dialing from the mobile phone
* Class-of-service extended to mobile calls for better control
* Mobile call tracking/logging by the telecom manager using the PBX


* Outbound mobile calls routed through the enterprise PBX are “on-net” and included in the monthly service fee. (Inbound calls to the mobile phone do incur minutes.)
* Mobile-to-international calls are billed as if from the enterprise PBX or VPN
* Desk phones can be eliminated if desired
* Billed as an add-on feature ($20/month) to an existing Sprint CDMA Wireless Plan


* Premise-based Avaya Communications Manager (IP or TDM)
* Sprint CDMA mobile phone with data capability
* Sprint Dedicated IP or Global MPLS VPN connection
