Cellular operator 3 has launched 3Växel Softphone

The service allows 3’s subscribers to make and receive calls via any PC, in addition to calls made and received using regular mobile devices. The 3Växel service is already popular among 3’s enterprise subscribers. The new 3Växel Softphone addresses needs from 3 Sweden’s subscribers in terms of possibility to use their PC desktop / laptop to make and receive calls, improved in-door coverage as well as cost reductions when users make calls from abroad.

For the service, 3 uses OptiMobile PC VoIP client software as well as the OptiMobile SIP Gateway.

“3 Sweden, as the fast growing mobile operator in the Swedish market, has a pragmatic and result oriented approach, and always with continuous feedback from subscribers”, says Lars Edman, CEO of OptiMobile AB. He continues, “This is a success story in which we are very pleased to be part of”. “Optimobile’s flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and fast time to market are key elements when launching 3 Växel Softphone which is of strategic importance to our enterprise portfolio”, says Jörgen Askeroth, CTO at Hi3G Access AB.
