The Conferencing Solution by innovaphone

Conference rooms with up to 60 participants can be set up depending on the innovaphone gateway in use. The number of possible conference participants is defined by the available and reserved number of DSP channels on the innovaphone VoIP gateways (IP6010, IP811, IP3011 and IP1130). These are activated via hardware licenses.


Conference rooms can be set up easily and quickly with the Conference object. In this Conference object, the administrator can make adjustments concerning authorisations, PINs, names of conference rooms and other settings. One of these settings may be the authorisation of Application Sharing within the conference room. The name of the conference room determines how it is displayed in myPBX. Additionally, ad-hoc conference rooms can be set up via the operator function of the Conference object. The first participant creates a room. Announcements guide through the menu. Once the last attending participant hangs up and leaves the conference, the room is automatically deleted.


With innovaphone Conferencing, users have the choice between audio and video conferences. Application Sharing is possible with both. If participants dial into a conference with the correct PIN, Application Sharing opens up instantly. This also enables an easy set-up and easy operation of webinars. For all conferences, Application Sharing in combination with Video is now also possible with external participants via WebRTC. These participants benefit particularly from the new technology WebRTC.


Video Conferencing and the Conferencing App both have voice recognition: if a conference with several participants using Video telephony is set up, the visible participant is always the one currently speaking.


One special form of the telephone conference is the ad-hoc Broadcast Conference. A group of participants from the innovaphone PBX will be called via a special broadcast number. The call from this number is distributed to the participants of the group. Those participants who answer the call are automatically part of the telephone conference. The Broadcast Conferences offer a quick and effective way of exchanging information for regular telephone conferences with fixed participants.


A selection of professional announcements for the conference menu are available for telephone or video conferences. The admin integrates them via language files. These announcements easily guide every conference participant through the menu. Announcements for telephone or video conferences can be downloaded free of charge, and the languages available are German, English, French and Italian. Further announcements in different languages can be created individually and independently anytime. It is also possible to convert announcements with common audio formats into the necessary announcement format with the innovaphone Audio Converter.

innovaphone in practice: “New Regional Hospital” in Wroclaw

The company “New Regional Hospital Ltd.” (“Nowy Szpital Wojewódzki ”Sp. z o.o.) founded by the local government was responsible for the construction of the regional hospital and is now in charge of its administration. The new hospital is a very modern health centre consisting of 20 medical practices and 16 wards spread across 5 stories, with a total capacity of 550 patients. Approximately 1000 employees work in the hospital.


The company “Nowy Szpital Wojewódzki ” had high demands for its communication infrastructure. The new system was expected to ensure stable operation, high availability and a sophisticated concept of redundancy for optimal security in case of failure. Many IP and UC solutions were scrutinised. innovaphone AG, the specialist for professional business communication from Sindelfingen, participated in a public tender. After thorough evaluation of all communication solutions offered, the final decision was made in favour of innovaphone’s PBX system.
