Nortel's Mobile Extension application, which is part of Nortel's widely deployed business voice and multimedia solution, equips service providers to improve their revenue potential, gain new subscribers and reduce churn because they can offer the application as a Carrier-Hosted solution to their small and large enterprise customers. By offering this carrier-hosted solution, service providers can help their enterprise subscribers to increase productivity and save cost by reducing duplications in fixed and mobile environments.

Nortel's Mobile Extension offers a number of communications-transforming capabilities to subscribers:

- Works on any mobile device and cellular network, so subscribers do not need to purchase a special mobile device.

- Transforms mobile phone into an office extension so that subscribers 'on-the-go' can access a single corporate dial plan, single voicemail with integrated message waiting indication, and all their company's corporate calling features.

- Gives subscribers the ability to switch calls from one device to another without interrupting their voice conversation. For example, if users are on their mobile phone when they arrive at their office and want to switch devices, they can simply press a 'handoff' key on the desk phone and hang up the mobile.

- Let's subscribers program their mobile and desk phone simultaneously so that they can answer incoming calls from any device or location.

- Displays a single caller ID, which means that regardless of which device the subscriber calls from or where, the only number people will see is the subscriber's business line, making it easier for them to be reached.
