MAX Communication Server Release 6.5 Update 1 Feature Summary

PBX, Voice Mail, and Auto Attendant New Features and Enhancements

Insert Repeating Recording Alert Tone

In addition to inserting a single tone before recording a conversation, a periodic recording alert tone (1400 Hz half-second burst repeat every 15 seconds) is added to the recording tone configuration option. This feature only supports IP Extension using IP Phone/IPTalk and MobileExtension over SIP Trunk.

Administration Enhancements

Import Extension from Active Directory

This feature allows administrator to import extensions from Microsoft Active Directory. This saves significant time by avoiding re-entering extension information.

AltiGen IP phone auto discover server IP address

When an AltiGen IP phone boots up, the user only needs to enter extension number and password upon prompted. AltiGen IP phone can discover the MAXCS server IP address from DHCP server option 120. This feature simplifies IP phone deployment process. The user will only need to enter the extension and password to activate the extension. In addition to making initial IP phone setup easier, this feature is also helpful when there is a need to migrate MAXCS to a new IP address. The administrator just needs to update the new MAXCS IP address in the DHCP server and then reboot all Altigen IP phones. The phones will automatically pick up the new MAXCS IP address.

Custom Phrase Management tool

Custom Phrase Manager is a Windows-based application that makes managing custom phrases easy. It displays all custom phrases in a graphical user interface. You can add, delete, play, or modify a phrase by clicking a button. You also can rename an existing phrase to a meaningful name.

Note: An AltiGen Client SDK license is required to use this tool.
