Included Software Components

IP Office Administration Tools - IP Office Manager

IP Office Manager uses a Windows Graphical User Interface providing an intuitive interface for installation, configuration and subsequent moves and changes.

As with all IP Office applications, the Manager is multi-lingual and includes the ability to use the application both locally and remotely, making it possible for an administrator to manage any of their IP Offices from any country using their local language preference.

Access to each IP Office is protected by passwords and definable user rights. This allows Manager to operate according to the individual administrator's level of expertise. 

The IP Office Manager operates on a local copy of the IP Office configuration file. Configurations are prepared and reviewed off line before committing to the IP Office. This has the benefit of ensuring a backup copy of the system configuration is always available for disaster recovery. IP Office has a built-in audit trail that tracks changes to the system configuration, and who has made them. Manager can display the audit trail to assist with problem resolution. The Audit trail records the last 15 changes in the configuration.

IP Office Administration Tools - IP Office SMDR
IP Office SMDR (Station Message Detail Reporting) provides call logging and reporting and is often used by third party applications for many call accounting applications. IP Office SMDR provides much greater details of the call, including duration, ring time, hold time, and transfer information.  Third party applications use this data to allocate costs to departments, analyze trunk capacity, report usage against account codes etc.

IP Office Administration Tools - IP Office SSA
IP Office SSA (System Status Application (SSA) is a diagnostic tool for system managers and administrators to monitor and check the status of IP Office systems locally or remotely. SSA shows both the current state of an IP Office system and details of any problems that have occurred. The information reported is a combination of real-time events, historical events, status and configuration data to assist fault finding and diagnosis.

SSA provides real-time status, historic utilization and alarm information for ports, modules and expansion cards on the system. System Status Application's ability to play back previously recorded logs will allow incidents to be played back allowing technicians and maintainers to compare the incident to other system events that occurred during that same time. SSA connects to all variants of IP Office running release 4.0, using an IP connection that can be remote or local. Modem connections at 14.4kbps or above are supported for remote diagnostics.

IP Office Administration Tools - IP Office SNMP
IP Office SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is an industry standard designed to allow the management of data equipment from different vendors using a single Network Manager application. The Network Manager will periodically poll equipment to solicit a response, if no response is received an alarm is raised.

In addition to responding to polls, IP Office monitors the state of its Extensions, Trunk cards, Expansion Modules (except WAN3 module) and Media cards so that if an error is detected IP Office will notify the Network Manager. IP Office allows two separate Network Managers to be configured so that both a customers Network Manager and a Maintainers Network Manager to be notified of the same alarm condition.

As the IP Office solution comprises many applications, the core software notifies SNMP events from both Voicemail Pro and Embedded voicemail to warn of approaching storage capacity limits. IP Office has been tested against CastleRock's SNMPc-EE and HP's Network Node Manager (part of the OpenView application suite). The Avaya Integrated Management Suite also uses HP's Network Node Manager.

IP Office Phone Manager
Phone Manager Lite is a free IP Office application that allows all employees visual access to telephony features and capabilities, including setting up conference calls and creating a speed dial list. Phone Manager Lite works with all Avaya IP Office telephones including affordable analog and entry-level digital or IP phones, while still offering advanced telephone functionality via a networked desktop PC.
