Release Version 12r2

Note the date: innovaphone’s PBX Software Version 12r2 will be released on June1st, 2017. You will find these new highlights and features in version 12r2. Some of the major innovations will be the innovaphone apps.

innovaphone Apps
PBX specific apps are started directly from the myPBX Client. With 12r2, there are license-free apps, and apps subject to licensing. PBX Boolean and PBX User Settings are license-free apps:

  • PBX Boolean: timers such as “Christmas holidays” and call diversions can be managed with this app.
  • PBX User Settings: dynamic groups can be managed with this app. Users see all of their dynamic groups and can enable or disable these by simply setting a tick.

Conference App
myPBX users can administer and set up conference rooms with the Conference App. You as the conference master can see the participants presently attending the conference, you can mute certain participants, or block them from the conference altogether. This also applies to video conferences and conferences with application sharing. The current speaker is visually highlighted in the Conference App and in a video conference, the video image of the current speaker is additionally displayed. The Conference App is subject to licensing and every user requires one separate license. An unlimited number of conference rooms can be used with this license

Smartphone Integration – Call through
Besides call back, innovaphone now also offers call through. First, the GSM call first enters into the system and is then relayed to the outside. innovaphone app users for iOS and Android can now decide which option they prefer.

Simple Outlook contact search
As part of office integration, innovaphone has activated Outlook Search in the launcher in its PBX Version 12r2. Private Outlook contacts can now be searched with myPBX.

Hyper-V Support
We fulfilled the feature request to also support IPVA on other virtualisation platforms. From 12r2 on, IPVA will be supported on Hyper-V. The advantage is easy installation and easy integration of the IPVA in an existing Windows server infrastructure, with Hyper-V being freeware by Microsoft.

SDK Headset Support
With support of the software development kits, the compatibility of headsets (Sennheiser, Jabra, Plantronics) with innovaphone are considerably simplified and comprehensive interoperability is easier to ensure.

The Software Version 12r2 needs more memory space. This may limit operability of the PBX on various devices. Our wiki provides more information on the upgrade to 12r2 and on discontinued products.

Beta12r2 is available

The innovaphone Apps are one of the major innovations in Version 12r2. They extend the myPBX client for additional functionality that goes beyond unified communications. That could be, for example, a calendar or even reporting or voice recording. The innovaphone Apps are started directly from the myPBX client. With Beta 12r2, innovaphone is already bringing out the first apps:

  • PBX Boolean: this app allows timers to be set such as “Christmas holidays” or call diversions.
  • PBX Conference: a separate conference room for the myPBX user. The conference master sees who has joined the conference call and can decide, at will, to mute them or exclude them from the conference call.
  • PBX user settings: manages, for example, dynamic groups. Users see all of their dynamic groups and can enable or disable them simply by setting a tick.

Smartphone Integration – Call through
In addition to call back, the innovaphone Version 12r2 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 - call back or call through.

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
We have heeded to the feature request to support IPVA also on other virtualisation platforms. As from 12r2, IPVA is also supported on Hyper-V. The advantage of this is that Hyper-V is freeware from Microsoft and the IPVA can easily be installed in existing Windows Server infrastructure.

SDK headset support
The software development kit simplifies the compatibility of headsets (Sennheiser, Plantronics, Jabra) with innovaphone and ensures interoperability throughout.

More features

  • Filter for IPv6 interfaces
  • TURN via TCP
  • Thai language support
  • myPBX client on the Windows Launcher now uses Chromium

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 to work, your device must run on at least V12r1sr4. If you don’t have V12r1sr4, download Beta 12r2 here for installation.

Our Wiki provides more information, e.g. on discontinued products, Beta 12r2 etc.

Discuss 12r2 in the Beta forum.

Are you looking to develop an app yourself? Then we ask you to be patient. In the new year, innovaphone will publish a preview of 13r1 with the App platform. This runs on devices with Beta 12r2 and can be used for app development.

Water and fire cannot harm the innovaphone gateways ;-)

Not only did an innovaphone IP800 gateway IP800 survive a flood without malfunctioning in June 2013, an IP305 has now defied fire.

A technical malfunction in the air conditioning caused a fire at one of Telepark Passau’s customer premises in May of this year. The innovaphone VoIP IP305 gateway was the only device to survive the fire and heat without damage. The external scorch marks were the only visible proof that the device had been in a fire.

After this experience, the customer was so convinced of the innovaphone VoIP gateway’s durability and robust construction that it has meanwhile decided to configure its entire telephone system as an innovaphone solution. Until it was replaced by the IP411 in November, the fire-tested IP305 VoIP gateway continued its service without any problems.
