New Aarenet Voice and Video Client “anDesktop” for Windows and macOS

Aarenet announces today that it has released the newly developed client “anDesktop” for Windows and macOS systems as a Beta release to be used for extended field trials.

Following requests from different carrier customers, Aarenet developed a new desktop client for Windows and macOS. Market requirements confirm the benefits and increased use of software-based clients versus desktop SIP phones also related to the trend towards working from home or in other flexible setups and locations. The desktop client, named “anDesktop” allows access to the corporate cloud PBX telephone book, the possibility to configure specific account features like call forwarding, voice as well as video calling complemented with a screen sharing function and a full view of the call history as well as access to the personal voice mail box.


Next to being used a stand-alone desktop client, the application also provides the base for the anTeams plugin for MS Teams users. This plugin enables Microsoft Teams users to make calls from the MS Teams application. This cost-effective solution integrates the phone system and the external PSTN number into the MS Teams application without the need for dedicated telephony licenses.

Frank Remmers, VP Product Management, says: “We have developed a user-friendly yet powerful desktop client. Also, our carrier customers asked for the possibility to customise and brand the client to distinguish the offering from other, commercially available, clients. We have implemented a process to minimise the required steps to activate the client on the desktop and make it as easy as clicking on an activation tile without the need to enter account credentials. Combined with our smartphone client “an IP-Phone” we can offer a powerful combination for flexible deployment in dispersed locations. First feedback from customers is very positive and we expect that the client will be released for commercial deployment soon.”
