Media5 has released a SIP client application that allows the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch to be used as a IP-PBX extension.

The company says the full-featured softphone enables the Apple devices to be used to access the same phone services and features as if they were in the office.

That includes remote workers being able to contact other offices or employees.

Pascal Doré, Media5’s mobility product line manager, said the new release of the Media5-Fone extends its mobile portfolio to iPhone users on the go.

"It offers them the key features needed to integrate an easy-to-use SIP IP-PBX extension within the iPhone," she said.

Doré said in addition to the Lite version, Media5’s engineers are working to bring the next fully featured Enterprise version of the Media5-Fone.

She said that will embed strong Voice security encryption among the key features.

VoIP service providers who offer calling plan can also benefit from the same SIP connectivity extension for their customers who own an iPhone.

Enterprise users can also leverage the cost-saving benefits of VoIP by enabling their users with high quality phone calls wherever there is a broadband connection.

Media5-Fone is now available in the Apple App Store.

Other features of the Media5-Fone include:

  • Voice Mail Integration
  • Loudspeaker
  • VoIP over Wi-Fi
  • Native Contacts List
  • Hold
  • Easy Configuration
