Intel to work on Avaya softphone optimisation.
Chip maker Intel Corp is reportedly to work with Avaya Inc in order to enhance the performance and reliability of Avaya's IP telephony softphone for laptops.
IP telephony softphones are intended for use with laptop, PC and PDA devices and Avaya is to optimise its SIP-based, IP Telephony Softphone for laptop PCs based on next-generation Intel Centrino mobile technology. According to Avaya, the venture with Intel will result in more reliable softphone performance when more than one computer program is running.
Avaya said that the developments will enable mobile workers to link their laptop into remote wired and wireless networks while using an Avaya softphone and running several business applications. It claimed that call quality experienced will be similar to that offered by a desktop phone. The two companies are also to work together on the control, functionality and integration of Bluetooth wireless-enabled devices used with the softphone, reported Dow Jones.
