Cloud Telecomputers Introduces Glass

The Android-based Platform Enabling Desktop Smartphones for Business

Cloud Telecomputers, a software innovator in business communication applications and IP telephony, today introduced Glass, its unique Android-based platform for desktop business smartphones. This SIP compatible platform delivers a highly attractive and intuitive user interface on an eight-inch color touchscreen, plus Outlook integration for tap-to-dial, Bluetooth for answering cell calls on your desk phone, voice dialing, HD speakerphone, and interfaces to popular CRM programs such as Salesforce.com. IT managers and partners can add additional features via Glass's open API.

"Glass makes the desk phone relevant again," said David McMorrow, Cloud Telecomputers CEO. "It thoughtfully integrates business applications with IP telephony to bring the office phone into the 21st century. It's a technological leap forward in terms of applications and usability, helping professionals to be more productive and informed in their everyday communications."

"I love this phone. It's like having a smartphone on my desk." - Ed Zander, former CEO of Motorola

Partner-friendly licensing and smart technology

Cloud Telecomputers developed Glass to enable its partners to deliver a unique business user experience. Glass's open API and Android development environment enable SIP phone and IP PBX manufacturers, service providers, and third parties to add applications and create their own unique presence in the market.

"Our approach allows us to focus on innovation, continually increasing the functionality of the Glass platform, while our partners concentrate their resources on branding, selling and tailoring applications for vertical markets. Our concept of centralized R&D, spread across multiple partners worldwide, allows us to deliver much more capability for less cost to our partners," said Ravin Suri, Cloud Telecomputers CTO.

The Glass platform also integrates proven and popular technologies such as Bluetooth, HD audio, and AudioCodes SIP technology, to ensure that Glass delivers the high degree of quality and usability expected by businesses.

Cloud Telecomputers is completing certification of its Glass platform to be compatible with telecom's leading phone IP PBX systems such as Asterisk & Trixbox, and Hosted VoIP systems from BroadSoft and MetaSwitch.
