Nortel has made enhancements to its mobility solutions, which are designed to make it possible for business professionals to take their ‘office anywhere’ through reliable mobile access. Nortel’s Office Anywhere mobility solutions build on the strong foundation of the Virtual Enterprise, which is designed to allow dispersed employees to collaborate as effectively as though they were in the same office, regardless of physical location. Office Anywhere solutions are planned to deliver secure remote access, unified communications and collaborative applications across indoor and outdoor WLANs, cellular networks and wired networks to allow workers to increase their productivity whether at home, on the road, or roaming around a business campus. “Nortel’s mobility solutions enable enterprises in this region to operate efficiently outside of physical boundaries and are designed to ensure both telecommuters and road warriors have the same level of access and mobility they would in an office environment,” says Ramin Attari, vice president Middle East, Nortel Networks. “With our ‘Office Anywhere’ concept, we are delivering the means for employees to be more productive and companies to be more competitive by enabling employees to access wireless enterprise applications that enhance personal and organisational workflow,” he adds. Multimedia Communications Server (MCS) 5100 Release 3.5 delivers voice, call management and instant messaging to a mobile workforce. The MCS BlackBerry device soft client enables a BlackBerry device user to communicate or to respond to voice calls using instant messaging. In addition, the client enables mobile users to see the status of their instant messaging contact list. CallPilot Unified Messaging Release 4.0 delivers enhanced e-mail capabilities, allowing voice messages to be embedded within e-mail, and real-time message notifications to mobile workers via their BlackBerry device or handheld. Nortel’s SSL VPN (Secure Socket Layer Virtual Private Network) Net Direct capability provides mobile workers full network access to internal business applications and services, including IP (Internet Protocol) telephony and multimedia, from SSL-enabled Web devices like computers, cell phones and PDAs. Nortel’s SSL VPN also provides secure access to partners and customers without having to deploy and support traditional VPN access, requiring specific clients, devices, locations and designated networks.
