Samsung OfficeServ V4.60 is the system’s latest software release and introduces some new system and end-user features to address employee productivity, system security and flexibility and to help with cost reduction. V4.60 includes over 20 new features and four new hardware expansion cards designed to help small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) better meet today’s mobility and collaborative needs using all modes of communication, including voice, video, mobile, instant messaging and presence. Additionally, as businesses continue to face significant economic challenges, the software adds support for some new capabilities that require fewer system resources and less maintenance, reducing costs.
The OfficeServ 7000 IP-PBX family includes five platforms suitable for the very small office and SMBs:
Up to 99 OfficeServ systems (or earlier Samsung iDCS systems) can be networked to handle growing multisite customers. All of the Samsung OfficServ systems support the same telephones, soft phones and wireless devices. There are also some advanced capabilities for smaller businesses, including built-in mobility features (OfficeServ Connect and Mobile Extension or MOBEX) and unified communications (OfficeServ Communicator Basic and Professional) with support for video calling, instant messaging and presence status information.
Samsung’s newest SMT-iSeries VoIP phone portfolio offers five models for entry-level, mid-range and advanced user needs. The high-end SMT-i5243 has a 4.3-inch color display, a visual phone book (Caller ID with photo), a USB port for connecting a memory stick, Web camera or Bluetooth device and an XML browser; users can download images and ringtones and access Samsung’s OfficeServ Messenger for instant messaging.
What’s New with V4.60?
The latest OfficeServ V4.60 software includes over 20 new features and four new hardware expansion cards and builds on previous releases that added features for mobile workers, namely OfficeServ Connect for simultaneous ringing (to five other numbers) and Mobile Extension, or MOBEX, for assigning an extension to a cell phone, home phone or other phone number outside the OfficeServ System. The OfficeServ Communicator productivity application for Windows PC-based calling, including video calling, enables presence and instant messaging, white-boarding and file sharing capabilities when combined with Samsung’s OfficeServ Messenger server application.
Here are some of the latest features:
The new version also supports multiple SIP Service Providers. Up to four SIP carriers can be registered simultaneously, allowing the customer to use different carriers such as for local, domestic long distance and international calls; customers can choose the carrier based on lowest cost. Several new SIP trunking features are supported, including Fax-over-IP, Caller ID blocking, SIP Trunk Error Alarms and more. Finally, new system hardware includes three new station cards and a redesigned 20-port voicemail card, the SVMi-20i, with internal MGI channels for IP phones, SIP trunks and other IP devices and license expansion.
Availability: Samsung OfficeServ V4.60 software is available as of 1Q2012 worldwide; the software is free of charge and upgraded for end users by Samsung dealers.
