"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.

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."
