"MAX Communications Server 6.5 Update 1 brings advanced, enterprise class mobile PBX features to the Apple iPhone," stated Jerry Fleming, AltiGen's President & COO. "In addition to our existing support for Google Android OS based devices, our iPhone client will register the smart phone as the business PBX extension and dynamically redirect all PBX extension calls to the mobile phone - completely transparent to the calling party. Offering all critical PBX functionality, integrated with advanced smart phone features, MaxMobile converges all business and mobile communications on a single device."

"Microsoft continues to grow as a dominant force in the Unified Communications market with Office Communications Server 2007," said Niel Levonius, AltiGen's Director of Business Strategy. "With our 100% Microsoft-based MaxCommunications Server platform, it was an easy decision to build out complementary products with native integration to OCS. Update 1 adds MaxCommunicator and MaxAgent plug-ins to Microsoft's Office Communicator for OCS, allowing for complete AltiGen PBX and Call Center call control within the Microsoft framework. These plug-ins will increase user productivity by consolidating the number of individual desktop applications required to accomplish true Unified Communications."
