Enables True, Campus Wide Mobile Unified Voice Communications
Plano, Texas— May 18, 2011 – Tango Networks™, a leading supplier of mobile unified communications solutions, today announced that its Abrazo Mobile Unified Communications solution is in place and ready to go into production on the University of Michigan (U-M) 700+ acre campus in Ann Arbor Michigan.
By coupling the mobile carriers’ functionality with the services powered by Tango Networks’ Abrazo™, any mobile phone, regardless of type, has the potential to be a true extension of the University of Michigan’s unified voice communications network and related applications. This will greatly improve connectivity & reachability among faculty and staff at the U-M.
“We are pleased to have our solution deployed in such a prestigious institution of higher learning as the University of Michigan,” said Alastair Westgarth, president and chief executive officer of Tango Networks. “This system transparently merges the existing campus wide voice network with the highly flexible mobile environment. In the future, university mobile users will have the option of using their mobile device in place of their desk phone.”
Mobile UC via the Tango Networks solution simplifies communication. With the flexible call management system, the university can add a single number on each employee’s mobile device, which means they can use their mobile phone for personal and professional needs. Importantly, this enables employees to be reached during business hours wherever they may be, on or off campus, or to use their exchange voicemail to access or take a work message.
