Unified Messaging

Meet-Me Conferencing

Reduce expenses by eliminating the need for external services. Parties can easily establish a teleconference for up to 120 participants using the CEC, with 60 simultaneous participants on one conference. A rich set of user controls enables the "chairperson" to start, stop, secure and control the conference.

SIP Trunking Support

It supports active call hand-off back and forth between different devices. Users can customize forwarding schedule based on time-of-day and day-of-week.
