SAN JOSE, CA–(Marketwire – Apr 11, 2012) – AltiGen Communications, Inc., a leading provider of Microsoft Unified Communications (UC) solutions, announced that its MaxMobile for Lync and iFusion SmartStations have been certified interoperable with Aruba Networks’ Wi-Fi infrastructure.

The network is designed to automatically and dynamically configure to deliver quality of service — on an application-by-application, device-by-device basis — as needed to ensure highly reliable delivery of those streams. Capitalizing on the benefits of Lync over Wi-Fi requires an ecosystem of hardware and application solutions.

The iFusion SmartStation is a multi-function desktop docking station that pairs the Apple iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 and 4S, and features an ergonomic handset and business-grade speakerphone. It also integrates seamlessly with voice-enabled applications such as Apple Siri, Apple FaceTime, Skype, AltiGen’s MaxMobile for Lync, Cisco Mobile, and Avaya one-X Mobile.
“Microsoft Lync is transforming the economics of unified communications, and partners like AltiGen help us extend those savings to desktop telephony,”said Michael Tennefoss, Aruba Networks’ Head of Strategic Partnerships. “Replacing wired VoIP phones with smartphones running on Aruba’s Wi-Fi networks and equipped with AltiGen’s MaxMobile for Lync and iFusion SmartStations can yield huge monetary and carbon footprint savings.”
“The performance of MaxMobile for Lync is dependent on the quality and capabilities of the Wi-Fi infrastructure over which it operates,” said Niel Levonius, Senior Director of Corporate Strategy, AltiGen. “Aruba’s industry-leading, application-aware Wi-Fi solutions make it possible for us to deliver high-quality Microsoft Lync services to smartphone devices.”
