NEW: innovaphone Soft Conferencing – Hosting Conferences without Requiring Hardware Resources

NEW: innovaphone Soft Conferencing Hosting Conferences without Requiring Hardware Resources

Up until now, certain hardware resources were required on a gateway so that conferencing could be made available on an innovaphone PBX. With Soft Conferencing (available from V13r1 SR13), audio and video conferences can now bet set up without requiring VoIP gateways with conference channels. 

Soft Conferencing supports voice via G.711 voice codec and can be set up with an additional interface (Soft Conferencing Interface – SCNF). This interface can be activated on an IPVA (virtual environment) as well as on our innovaphone VoIP gateways from IPXX11 on.

 

New Options with Soft Conferencing:

  • Conferences in virtualized environments (IPVA):

Standardly used for setting up conferences within innovaphone myApps Cloud. Here, audio and video conferences are set up without any hardware resources by means of activating the Soft Conferencing interface on the IPVA.

  • Soft Conferencing as an Upgrade or Add-On for VoIP Gateways:

Should a VoIP gateway not provide enough available channels for audio or video conferences, or should a gateway without integrated hardware-based channels be in use, the Soft Conferencing interface can be activated so that existing hardware is upgraded or retrofitted. This applies to all innovaphone gateways from IP XX11 on (with or without integrated hardware-based channels).

New: IP29-20 Analog Adapter + IP29-20 Combi Package

The analog adapters by innovaphone easily integrate analog devices such as telephones, fax machines and door intercoms into the IP Telephony and Unified Communications solution.

IP29-20 with 20 analog interfaces – for a high demand of analog connections.

The compact analog adapters provide the same powerful hardware platform just like the gateway models, and the all-new innovaphone IP29-20 is no exception. The analog adapter is also available in a combi package which will be replacing the currently available combi package IP29-8. The combi package IP29-8 can be ordered up until September 30th, 2020.

An 800 MHz processor and 256 MB RAM now provide the innovaphone Analog Adapters with more than enough power. The innovaphone Analog Adapter IP29-20 further supports the voice codecs Opus and G.722. Opus supports HD voice at low bandwidth so that the bandwidth can further be reduced without diminishing the voice quality, even with analog connections.

 Essential features:

  • Twenty analog interfaces
  • 800 MHz CPU with 256 MB memory
  • Voice codecs Opus and G.722
  • Power supply: PoE+

Please contact your certified innovaphone Partner for further information.

Can innovaphone myApps be Integrated into Microsoft Teams?

Can innovaphone myApps be Integrated into Microsoft Teams?

The answer is – yes, of course! The innovaphone PBX can easily be integrated into Microsoft Teams.

We have not developed a proprietary solution for the integration. Instead, we work according to the specifications of Microsoft and make sure to fulfil these. Our innovaphone PBX can be integrated into Microsoft Teams via “Microsoft direct routing” just as Microsoft recommends. Our own browser-based communications client innovaphone myApps can further be started directly in a Microsoft Teams group so that for example the Presence information of all innovaphone users will be displayed.

An SBC certified by Microsoft is used for direct routing. This will enable the connection. There are different scenarios concerning the connection of the SIP trunk and the configuration of certain features.

Since Microsoft itself limits the possibilities on certified SBCs, we work together with the respective solutions. The company TE systems, for example, with its certified product anynode has been a longstanding technology partner of innovaphone and numerous projects have already been realized together. We are further in contact with several providers in different countries. These providers offer a connection on the same technological basis locally from the cloud (e.g. Call2Teams) in order to also be listed as a supported platform.

As far as the costs are concerned, we do not require additional licenses. The only additional costs that arise are due to the SBC as well as the setup by a partner.

All New: “Virtual Classroom Trainings” for iT Connect & iT Advanced Trainings

All New: “Virtual Classroom Trainings” for iT Connect & iT Advanced Trainings

Due to the current global travel and gathering restrictions caused by the coronavirus outbreak, we have introduced our new training format “Virtual Classroom Trainings”. These will be replacing all the on-site trainings* for the time being and will take place via video conference and Application Sharing with full-time support and moderation of a trainer (opposed to the already existing online courses without a moderator).

Until further notice, this applies to the iT Connect Training and part I of the iT Advanced Training.

*Applies to all trainings directly carried out by innovaphone. The majority of our certified Training Centers also offer “Virtual Classroom Trainings”

The V13 Update Training will continue to take place in form of an online course (self-study).


Technical Requirements:

In order to participate in a “Virtual Classroom Training”, you will require certain training hardware. Please refer to following link:
https://www.innovaphone.com/en/partner/training/trainingshardware.html

For most efficient communication between the trainer and the participants, we also recommend using a webcam and a headset with microphone.

We will provide additional information on the preparation and set-up of your training environment in a separate e-mail which you will receive once you have registered for a training.


Please note: so far, you may still find mentions of “on-site trainings” on our website. We will be adjusting our website accordingly as soon as possible and change these to “Virtual Classroom Trainings”. Many thanks for your patience.

innovaphone devices are approved according to the standards foreseen by BSI zoning

The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has granted our IP811, IP3011 and IP0011 VoIP gateways and our IP112A IP phone Zone 1 approval for communication under special security conditions. 

Classified or confidential information such as communication of state or federal authorities place very specific demands on their communication devices regarding radiation. Communication with increased security requirements is referred to by using the term "classified communication", which is based on clearly defined parameters. To ensure compliance with the standards, selected testing companies are commissioned to subject hardware to extensive tests and to modify the hardware in order for it to meet the special requirements.

The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) regularly publishes a list of approved systems where the aforementioned innovaphone devices have been listed since November 2019.

The devices have officially been approved as "radiation tested hardware" for Zone 1 and particularly protected against so-called "compromising radiation".

The modifications and the subsequent approval were performed by GBS TEMPEST & Service GmbH.

“App, App, Hooray!” – 2nd innovaphone App Developer Workshop in Sindelfingen

Roughly one month after the premiere on May 26th, 2019, the 2nd App Developer Workshop took place in Sindelfingen.

Here is some feedback of two participants:

 

What I found particularly interesting was to get an understanding of the overall context. The workshop effectively presents the available components and how these interact with each other. As an introduction to app development, this was extremely useful.”

Timo Richter, CEO at Infoso GmbH

 

I thought the workshop was rather exciting. What made the workshop great was the combination of a bit of theory and a lot of hands-on practice. The participants have definitely received some valuable insight. Keep it up!”

Patrick Näf, owner of Keldano AG

 

We would like to say thank you to all the participants of our 2nd App Developer Workshop. Once again, you brought along some great ideas and we really look forward to the new apps being available on our new platform.
