RIM Announce MVS Version 5.1

11 May 2011
RIM used this year’s Blackberry World Conference to announce MVS version 5.1. This is an update to the already Generally Available version 5.0 which brings Voice over WiFi support to Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express PBX platforms.

MVS Version 5.1 extends the PBX support to Avaya and Nortel PBX systems widening it’s appeal.

An interesting additional feature is the ability for the hand held to detect when it’s WiFi signal is weakening to the point of being unusable and warning the user before the call drops.

We’ll be testing version 5.1 and will report back here.
