The offering will be powered by Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network, which will enable it to provide full PBX functionality, simultaneous voice calls across multiple cellular lines, LTE VoIP and multi-user Internet connectivity.
The company said the Ericsson Converged Workspace unit allows businesses to deploy new office locations or set up temporary work environments within minutes.
The second offering – Ericsson 4G Mobile Broadband Router leverages the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE mobile broadband router for both homes and small offices.
The company said that new offering provides high-speed wireless Internet access, Wi-Fi functionality and voice calling via LTE VoIP.
