How Genesys Softphone works
Genesys Softphone is a standalone SIP endpoint installable. That means it takes on the role of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Endpoint, the target of a SIP call, and call control. With Genesys Softphone, agents can make and receive calls from their workstation instead of through a hard phone.
What Genesys Softphone does[edit source]
Genesys Softphone is a standalone SIP endpoint. It supports different dialing modes, third-party call control, SSO, a variety of voice codecs, and WebRTC. It can be deployed in either standalone or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environments. It runs in either Connector Mode, where it is controlled by another application, such as Genesys Agent Workspace, or Standalone Mode, where it acts as a soft phone and includes call controls.
