Use cases

Fixe mobile convergence for Business Centrex

The Uniquity Centrex application provides a fixed mobile convergence service to allow Uniquity centrex end-users to access to their services and be reachable, from a regular SIP phone and from a mobile phone as well.

The advantage is that the end-users, the persons calling or called by the Uniquity centrex user only type or see the company extensions.

The requirement on the mobile network is to route calls from the mobile to the ACS platform, based on a defined prefix (i.e. #88) dialed by the end user.
