(SINGAPORE, 27 JUNE, 2013)Jabra, a world leader in hands-free audio solutions, and Siemens Enterprise Communications, a leading global provider of Unified Communications, today announced that the latest Jabra Bluetooth® headset will support Siemens Enterprise Communications’ OpenScape Mobile Call Swipe feature, making it easier and faster for users to seamlessly switch from one device to another without losing connection or switching headsets.

The OpenScape Mobile Call Swipe feature allows the user, with a simple swipe, to move their voice conversations from an office phone or laptop to a mobile device and back again, making the user truly mobile. Through this strategic partnership, Jabra and Siemens Enterprise Communications have collaborated to integrate Jabra headsets and mobile devices into the OpenScape platform so customers can be sure that their unified communication solution delivers the optimal sound quality, offers the opportunity for a faster user adoption and easier deployment.

“Breakthroughs in the league of OpenScape Call Swipe are not something we see every day, even in this innovative and high-tech industry, “says Holger Reisinger, Jabra Vice President of Marketing, Products and Alliances. “OpenScape Call Swipe is one of the few features we have seen appear in recent years, which is solving a longstanding, low-tech challenge for mobile workers, moving from the office to the car without having to interrupt the call to change device. – Call Swipe deserves to become industry standard.”

When moving from one environment to the other, users need crystal clear sound and reliable connections. Through a series of thorough tests, Jabra and Siemens Enterprise Communications have identified the Jabra MotionTM UC as an excellent match for OpenScape Mobile. Featuring the latest and intelligent motion technology, the Jabra Motion UC allows users to communicate easily, both in the office and on the go. The built-in motion sensors react to even the slightest movements, adjusting the volume to the surroundings and enabling an intuitive call control – by automatically answering the call when picked-up.

“This collaboration with Jabra provides customers an excellent headset option for superior audio quality and connections when using OpenScape Mobile,” said Randy Roberts, Vice President, Mobile Portfolio, Siemens Enterprise Communications. “For both audio-only and video enabled communications, OpenScape Mobile and Jabra make it easy for users to enjoy true mobility.”

In March of 2013, OpenScape Mobile and the Jabra Motion UC headset were both nominated finalists for the ‘Best of Enterprise Connect Award 2013’.
