Newsletter 01/2017

Dear Newsletter reader,


January - the month of good intentions. At innovaphone, we have made a new year’s resolution to keep you even more informed about our PBX and VoIP and Unified Communications solutions. We want to share the enthusiasm we have for our products and solutions with you and immerse you into the world of innovaphone.


The first thing we have to report about this year is our Christmas donations instead of presents campaign and our special Christmas gift to you: the innovaphone Beta 12r2.


Have fun reading!


Donations instead of presents - innovaphone fundraiser 2016


We decided to take leave from traditional "Christmas gifts" in the strict sense again in 2016. Instead, recipients received an amount of money from innovaphone which they could distribute amongst three nonprofit organizations. innovaphone will then donate the amount that came together in our Christmas donations instead of presents campaign. This is the result:


751 euros go to Amani Children’s Home in Tanzania
683 euros go to Worldwide Cancer Research
512 euros go to Save the Elephants



Click here to see the exact projects we supported and take a look at our donations instead of presents fundraiser.


innovaphone Beta 12r2 now available!

The innovaphone Beta version 12r2 is now available for interested parties to test. Here, we have summarized the highlights of version 12r2 for you. One of the major innovations in Version 12r2 are the innovaphone Apps.


innovaphone Apps

The innovaphone Apps are started directly from the myPBX client. Within the scope of 12r2 we initially introduce three apps: Conference, Boolean and User Settings. The "Conference" app, for example, provides the myPBX user with an own conference room. The "User Settings" manage dynamic groups. More apps regulate time switches such as e.g. the night switch etc.


Smartphone Integration – Call through

In addition to call back, innovaphone now also offers Call through. A GSM call first enters into the system and is then relayed to the outside. Users of the innovaphone apps for iOS and Android can now decide which variant they prefer.


Simple Outlook contact search

As part of the Office integration, innovaphone PBX Version 12r2 has enabled the Outlook search in the launcher. myPBX can now search through private Outlook contacts.


Hyper-V support

As from 12r2, IPVA is also supported on Hyper-V. The advantage of this is that the IPVA can easily be installed in an existing Windows Server infrastructure.


SDK headset support

The software development kit simplifies the compatibility of headsets by various manufacturers (Sennheiser, Jabra, Plantronics) with innovaphone and ensures simple interoperability throughout.


You can also easily download Beta 12r2 via the new update feature. You can now update any innovaphone gateway or phone to the latest firmware version - with just one click. To do this, click the “Maintenance” tab on your device and then "Update".

Please note: for this your device must run at least with V12r1sr4. If you don’t have V12r1sr4, you will find instructions on how to download the Beta version 12r2 in the innovaphone Beta Forum. Have fun testing it out!


For more information about Beta 12r2, see our Wiki.
