Alca-Lu targets SMBs with latest collaborative suite

Alcatel-Lucent has introduced the newest release of its collaboration platform for small and medium businesses in Africa, Middle East and India, providing new features such as push mobile and fax server solutions.

The Extended Communication Server (ECS) is a solution that claims to transform the way SMBs communicate by delivering integrated communication, collaboration and mobility solutions that are scalable, reliable and cheap.

Part of the Alcatel-Lucent Office portfolio, the Extended Communication Server family and OmniPCX Office family of IP-PBX systems deliver collaboration and unified communication solutions tailored to the specific needs of SMBs.

The push mobile feature within ECS lets employees retrieve emails, calendar, contacts and tasks on-the-fly and in real-time on their mobile devices, keeping in touch with their business anytime, anywhere.

Push mobile offers a secure, flexible, easy to deploy provider independent solution without the need for specific subscription, where data carrier services are the only requirement.
