Telecel Vodafone – "Mobile PABX" launched for the first time in Europe
Telecel Vodafone is the first European operator, and one of the first in the world, to offer a new service, designed particularly for large and medium-sized companies, that truly integrates fixed and mobile telecommunications.
The service, which will revolutionise company operations, is named IN/OUT. It provides customers with the benefits of a true mobile (virtual) PABX (Private Automatic Branch eXchange) operating on the mobile phones in their offices, with the functions and tariffs which until now applied only to fixed PABX extensions. Amongst other advantages of IN/OUT, when the customer’s mobile phones are located inside their premises, outside calls made are charged at fixed phone rates, calls made between the mobile phones are free and can be made using short-number dialling.
The mobile phones of a customer who subscribes to the service will change to having two modes of operation: inside the customer’s premises, they will act as (mobile) PABX extensions; outside the premises, they will retain the usual characteristics of a mobile phone.
This new service will bring major benefits to customers, such as:
There will be a monthly subscription fee for the IN/OUT service and, in some cases, installation costs, which will be arrived at on a case-by-case basis, depending on the solution specified by the customer.
