AltiGen to Showcase Contact Center and Unified Mobile Convergence Solutions for Microsoft Lync Server 2010 at TelecomExpo

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - December 2, 2010) - AltiGen Communications, Inc. (OTCQX: ATGN) (PINKSHEETS: ATGN), the leading provider of software-based Unified Communications solutions, today announced it will be showcasing its new Contact Center and Unified Mobile Convergence solutions for Microsoft Lync Server 2010 in the Microsoft Pavilion at TelecomExpo. The event will be held in city of Utrecht, The Netherlands (Holland) on December 8th and 9th, 2010.

Microsoft Lync Server provides a single solution that unites voice, IM, audio, video, and web conferencing. Ushering in a new connected experience, Microsoft Lync transforms every communication into an interaction that is more collaborative, engaging, and accessible. 

AltiGen extends the capabilities of Lync Server with integrated Contact Center and Unified Mobile Convergence solutions. MaxCS Contact Center, an integrated all software solution, integrates directly with Lync Server to deliver robust Automatic Call Distribution, Skills Based Routing, Call Recording, and Advanced Reporting. MaxMobile, the company that designed a native application for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and (in 2Q11) Windows Phone 7 devices, offers true Unified Mobile Convergence to Lync Server, enabling smartphones to function as integrated Lync extensions.

"Leveraging our expertise as a long time developer of Microsoft-based Unified Communications solutions, AltiGen is uniquely able to add value to companies implementing Lync Server 2010," said Jerry Fleming, President & CEO of AltiGen Communications. "Our strategy of delivering all software solutions natively integrated to Lync Server enables organizations to deploy a complete Unified Communications solution across their the entire enterprise, while eliminating the expensive proprietary hardware required by traditional business communications platforms."

According to Jeroen André de la Porte, Managing Director of Boport Tele-Communication, "As the first distributor in The Netherlands to offer Microsoft-based communications solutions, Boport has a thorough understanding of the value that Unified Communications brings to businesses of all sizes. As business communications have evolved to incorporate email, Instant Messaging and collaboration, traditional hardware-based telephony platforms have become obsolete. The AltiGen solutions, built on top of the Microsoft Lync platform, truly represent the next generation of business communications."
