New IPXX11 gateway generation
The new generation of VoIP gateways has much more power. With a powerful CPU and significantly more memory, along with software tailored specifically to this hardware, they fulfil all necessary tasks in record time.
All of the gateways, which provide a platform for the innovaphone PBX, are equipped with an internal slot for SSD memory. The computing power of the gateways is designed so that they can also easily operate a Linux API. Thus, there is virtually no limit to the number and scope of possible additional applications. In addition to the commonly used codecs, the innovaphone gateways also support the modern Opus codec.
More information about our gateways can be found on our website.
IP311 - PBX and UC in one box for analogue trunk connections or All IP
We currently expect shipping to begin in calendar week 8 and we are already taking pre-orders. The next Service Release of software version 11R2 (expected from March 2016) will include support of the new gateways in the V11r2.
All about licenses
innovaphone started exclusively supplying V12 licenses since 15 January, 2016. The Max20 license no longer exists. The following information advises you of the peculiarities that may arise if you use licenses with various version numbers and how the discontinuation of the Max20 license will affect you.
The license version number indicates what innovaphone software can be operated.
As a general rule: it is necessary for a license to have the same or a greater version number than the software in order to use this software.
Thus, for example, a V12 license enables the innovaphone Software version 12, as well as the innovaphone software version 11, 10 etc. An installation that is running with software V11, can easily be extended with V12 licenses.
If licenses with various version numbers are put together in one installation, the lowest version number determines which software version (maximum) can be used for the entire installation. Operating an installation with so-called mixed licenses does not pose any problems.
An example: if the innovaphone software version 12 is installed on a V11 installation, which still has some V11 licenses, the software version 12 cannot be used. The innovaphone software version 12 cannot be used until the V11 licenses have been upgraded to V12 licenses via SSA, or until these existing V11 licenses have been removed from the installation.
The discontinued Max20 license
The Max20 license was discontinued on 15 January, 2016. For projects under SSA, the Max20 licenses will be converted to V12 Max20 licenses, despite the fact that Max20 licenses are otherwise not on sale for V12. This means that the SSA customer can continue to benefit from the cost advantage of Max20 licenses. Max20 licenses can no longer be purchased for installations that are not under SSA. You can of course still use V11-Max20 licenses that have previously been purchased for V11 installations.
For more information about our licensing model, please read our license guidelines.

innovaphone in practice: Stasto
Stasto could significantly reduce operating costs thanks to the new communication solution by innovaphone.
The Austrian company STASTO Ing. Stocker KG is an international trading and service company engaged in the field of automation technology. When planning the new telephone system, one of the central requirements was to ensure that the new solution should integrate seamlessly into the existing CRM system. In the long run, the idea was to integrate all of STASTO’s branch offices into one standardized IP infrastructure.
The implementation of the new telephone system in the existing CRM system went off with no problems whatsoever. Supporting standard protocols and interfaces is a fundamental part of the innovaphone product philosophy. Thus, innovaphone systems work together perfectly with solutions from many different manufacturers. Furthermore, maintenance and administration work is much easier compared to the former system, says Robert Storer, Responsible for IT at STASTO Automation: “Certain routine tasks such as “adding users”, “time scheduled switching” or “routing setup” can be carried out easily by our inhouse IT department. We are now able to do almost any job in connection with the new telephone system and no longer need to rely on external maintenance and service companies. Apart from the fact that we are much faster and more flexible, this also leads to significantly lower running costs. Maintenance costs have been reduced considerably”.
