EVM Outcalling – Through the mailbox prompts menu, mailbox users can now enable voicemail outcalling. This will call a number that is configured when their mailbox contains new messages.
EVM License – The additional ports license that enables 2 additional ports also enables 5 hours of additional prompt and message storage.
IP Office Manager can be used to import SIP and analog trunk settings from supplied trunk templates.
Avaya Nortel Phone Support
Systems can now use the TCM8 base card and DS16A or DS30A external expansion modules to support the addition of Avaya Nortel T-Series and M-Series phones.
PRI Trunk Support
Systems can now be installed with a IP500 PRI-U trunk daughter card. Only one single-port trunk card can be installed, allowing up to 30 E1 PRI trunk channels. Note that BRI and PRI trunks are not supported in the same system.
Avaya 9400/9500 Series Phone Support
Avaya 9400 and 9500 Series phones are supported. They connect to the system using Digital Station (DS) ports in the same way as existing 1400 Series phones.
The following changes have been made to button programming features;
Absent Text Inspect – The existing Absent Text button function used to set and clear a user’s absent text can now be used to see the absent text of another user without having to make a call to that user.
Message Waiting Indicator Inspect – This feature can be assigned to a programmable button. In conjunction with Auto Dial – Intercom buttons for other user extensions, it can be used to see the current message waiting indicator status of those users.
Data Migration Tool
This migration tool supports data transfer for the Norstar v7, Nortel BCM200/400/1000 R4, Nortel BCM50 R3/R5/R6 and Nortel BCM450 R1/R5/R6 systems. This tool will minimize errors and dramatically cut down on the installation time and costs by allowing programming and Auto-Attendant customer announcements to be migrated directly into IP Office.
