Soft Phones

Soft phones are "communication applications" that run on your PC. Some look like traditional phones, while others are more tightly integrated into desktop applications, making their utility more seamless. Benefits of soft phones are their mobility enablement and their ability to integrate Unified Communications into a variety of business applications.

SSP sells and supports all versions of Alcatel-Lucent's soft-phone line-up, each version being suited for slightly different customer needs.
