Apivio Tests its Liberty L2 Wi-Fi Phone with IP PBX Features
January 11, 2017
The BYOD phenomenon looked to improve productivity and efficiency levels in workflows and communication by integrating personal mobile devices into the corporate infrastructure. While some sing the praises of BYOD, others have very little to say about it, which provides an opportunity for companies looking to fill that gap with the right solution. In terms of communications, Apivio Systems may have just come up with the right solution with its Liberty L2 Wi-Fi phone, which, according to the company, has been receiving positive feedback and gaining early traction with a pilot group of resellers and customers.
At first glance, the Liberty L2 Wi-Fi phone looks like a cordless phone, but in reality it is a purpose-built solution to enhance business continuity. It extends the reach of the desktop phone with IP PBX (News - Alert)-like features so teams can collaborate and improve their productivity levels as well as customer service by being accessible at all times.
The wireless access protocol of the L2 includes: IEEE (News - Alert) 802.11 a/b/g/n; Static IP, DHCP; RTP/RTCP; and QoS (IEEE802.1p, 802.11i) along with WEB 64/128 WPA, WPA2; WPA-PSK/TKIP/AES; and WPA2-PSK TKIP/AE Wi-Fi protected access .
These features allowed the L2 to perform well at a school in California, which resulted in the IT department deciding to use the phone as its primary device for staff communication. The technology Apivio Systems has developed is going to give all of the preschool classrooms in the California school with mobile communication integration a school-wide phone system. This will give each teacher a mobile device they can carry with them at all times, whether they're in the classroom or outside.
“Achieving interoperability and stability in diverse Wi-Fi environments can be challenging, and our goal from the start has been to ensure the L2's performance and quality fully exceeds the needs and requirements of users across a variety of industries before we target a full market release,” said Rob Bakshi, President and CEO of Apivio Systems Inc.
The IP PBX features of the L2 offer a range of communication options to users, including three-way conference call, call screen/do not disturb, call forwarding, call transfer, instant messaging and more. Just like an IP PBX system, users that carry the L2 with them can instantly access administrators within the organization right away.
The company sees the L2 being used across large industry verticals, including enterprises with large facilities, multiple locations or massive campus environments, schools, and even small businesses.
Apivio hasn't announced full availability of the Liberty L2 Wi-Fi phone, stating it will expand the release across geographic and industry verticals while providing ongoing updates on its status.
