BroadWorks® Communicator
FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS
The BroadWorks Communicator is an audio and video SIP
softphone for Windows XP and Vista that is tightly integrated
with the BroadWorks platform. The BroadWorks Communicator
has access to BroadWorks’ many advanced VoIP-based
voice/video features such as video-enabled services, complete
call control, and messaging/voicemail integration.
BroadWorks Communicator Overview
The BroadWorks Communicator is a feature-rich desktop
application that allows business and residential users to use the
client as a primary or secondary phone device for their IP
communications services.
As an integrated device with the BroadWorks platform, service
providers are able to auto provision the client, provide automatic
updates, and version management seamlessly through the
BroadWorks Application Server. A key benefit of integration for
users is the central storage of contacts, eliminating the need to
duplicate contact lists.
The BroadWorks Communicator allows for the separation of the
audio and video stream for redirection of audio to a headset and
video to the desktop. This separation provides maximum
flexibility and options for end users.
The BroadWorks Communicator supports localization and
branding using the BroadWorks Deployment Studio.
