According to the company, the solutions deliver UC features, such as voice mail, unified messaging, fax server and auto attendant, but on a personalized basis for each individual user and each unique business practice or process. NetVanta UC solutions can fit from five to more than 2,000 users per server, supporting SMBs to large distributed enterprises.
The NetVanta UC Solutions Suite includes several options. The NetVanta UC Server is for businesses with an existing PBX. As a centralized UC solution, it is capable of supporting UC on one or more different types of PBXs from a variety of manufacturers.
The NetVanta Business Communications System combines the NetVanta 7000 Series IP PBX with the NetVanta UC Server enhanced with additional features such as click-to-dial capabilities and an integrated conference server. The solution also includes NetVanta UC Server’s database connectivity option. This solution supports up to 100 users per platform and is designed for new installations or remote locations where a complete voice/data/security platform is needed.
The NetVanta Enterprise Communications Server provides a complete IP-based voice and UC system for larger enterprises. Designed for use with Microsoft Windows and Active Directory, this SIP-based platform offers a soft IP PBX that is complemented with all the UC features of NetVanta UC Server plus click-to-dial, an integrated conference server and a paging server for overhead paging.
The NetVanta Business Application Server enables businesses to implement communications-oriented business process automation. It can be used as a standalone solution or with existing PBXs or collaborative solutions such as Microsoft OCS or IBM Lotus Sametime. Scalable to more than 200 concurrent calls, the solution leverages the graphical drag-and-drop non-programmatic service creation environment common across all NetVanta UC solutions to allow IT and telecom professionals to create tailored communications services. Database capabilities enable queries to leverage data in Line of Business (LOB) application databases using built-in functions, such as dial-for-data, retrieve, update, add and delete database fields.
