DiVitas Networks launched a new solution this week that the vendor boasts is the first mobile-to-mobile convergence (MMC) technology built specifically for the enterprise market.

Comprised of a client embedded in headsets and an enterprise appliance, the new DiVitas Networks' MMC solution promises to give businesses the technology they need to give both their mobile and facilities-based workers complete freedom of movement without the loss of productivity.The vendor says the solution, which interoperates with both established PBX-based phone systems or in a standalone configuration, gives workers the ability to roam but still access enterprise applications--including e-mail, customer relationship management software (CRM), and instant messaging systems--from their mobile handsets. The DiVitas MMC solution works with any wireless LAN infrastructure and a variety of handsets, including dual-mode phones, Wi-Fi phones, cellular-only smartphones, and softphones.

Industry observers say DiVitas Networks is in a class by itself, at least on paper. However, they caution that for the reality to live up to the promise, the solution needs to rise to the challenge of performing reliably across a varied mix of Wi-Fi networks, IP telephony networks, smartphones and wireless carrier networks.

Reports from early testers are, so far, quite positive. The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Medical Center, which tested the technology for six months, says it is on the way to delivering "a seamless mobile experience" to its health-care staff that bridges its cellular and Wi-Fi networks using the DiVitas solution.

The DiVitas MCA 1000 appliance starts at $5,495 for a 10-user license. The solution is available immediately.
