, which is part of Research in Motion Ltd., has developed the Ascendent Voice Mobility client for BlackBerry
The software is a BlackBerry-specific version of technology that effectively pushes in-house voice calls to handheld devices. The Voice Mobility software extends an organization's Private Branch Exchange or IP-PBX capabilities to the handheld.
