"Achieving general availability for the Mobile Advantage Wireless Office system is an exciting breakthrough for businesses in the U.S.," says Torbjorn Ward, Director of Ericsson's Wireless Office Services unit. "Enterprise customers can now look forward to having the freedom of mobility and enhanced productivity afforded by the Mobile Advantage system."

The fully digital mobile communications system incorporates all major PBX features, including PBX voice mail, caller ID, 4 or 5-digit dialing, call waiting, call transfer, call forwarding and message waiting indication. All calls not answered by the user are deposited into the user's PBX voice mail. "Wireless Office Service gives businesses a competitive edge and puts them ahead of the technology curve," adds Michael Radovich, Director of AT&T's Wireless Office Service Product Development group. "Products like the Ericsson Mobile Advantage system allow companies to leverage their existing infrastructure while still being able to reap the benefits of advanced communications solutions."
