ORLANDO, FL – 31 January 2011- Jabra, a world leader in innovative headset solutions, today expanded its growing portfolio of unified communications solutions with the Jabra PC Suite® Plug-In for IBM Lotus® Sametime®. The portfolio will be shown for the first time this week at Lotusphere 2011, the industry leading conference and premier event for the Lotus community worldwide.

The new Jabra PC Suite Plug-In enhances the telephony capabilities of Lotus Sametime and Sametime Unified Telephony by providing integrated call management functions —call answer/end, volume, mute — and remote ring detection to a range of award-winning Jabra corded and DECT or Bluetooth® wireless headsets. Jabra wireless headsets allow professionals the freedom to roam up to 450 feet away from their PC and be completely hands-free to multi-task and collaborate more effectively.

“Jabra was able to work closely with IBM to leverage the built-in voice capabilities of Lotus Sametime in order to provide an easy-to-use, integrated voice experience with our wireless headsets,” said Chris Briglin, Vice President of Business Development, GN Netcom. “Jabra wireless headsets can be used in the office or on the road and are easily paired with mobile and desktop devices to provide the ultimate audio experience, while maximizing portability and versatility.”
