The OpenScape 4000 communication server is the high available central control unit with redundant power supplies and redundant LAN interfaces.
The OpenScape 4000 V7 duplex architecture enables complete redundancy for call control, CSTA application connectivity and administration, even in geo-separated locations.
The AP 3700 access points and the new OpenScape Access modules fit in a standard 19- inch shelf and are integrated directly in the IT infrastructure.
The OpenScape 4000 SoftGate application offers software-based and cost-effective OpenScape 4000 VoIP functionalities running on standard x86 server platforms.
The OpenScape 4000 communication server can be flexibly implemented in configurations to support smallest to the largest enterprise. It supports up to 15 directly connected access points plus 83 IP-distributed access points, OpenScape Access or SoftGate branches.
A maximum of 12,000 subscribers can be supported in these configurations per OpenScape 4000 communication server. Configurations with up to 100,000 users can be implemented without difficulty in networked systems.
The modular structure of OpenScape 4000 also enables cost-effective resilience solutions to be realized in small and mid-sized configurations.
OpenScape 4000 Server Deployments
The new architecture of the converged IP system OpenScape 4000 allows a pure software installation at a standard server that is equipped with a Linux operating system. With this software version, existing customer solutions can be migrated to a data center and IT-based solution in which traditional TDM and analog devices as well as CO trunks are still supported.
OpenScape 4000 V7 now offers two different deployment options:
Both deployment options support up to 12,000 users per EcoServer or VMware® deployment. Up to 100,000 users can be managed by the OpenScape 4000 Manager system administration software.
EcoServer is the new system control unit of OpenScape 4000. The 1,5-rackunits-sized, 19-inch housing contains the complete Simplex control unit including the alarm interfaces and connectors for AP3x00 Access Points. According to the Unify Green IT-Roadmap, we strive wherever it is possible to acquire environmental labeling. Unify is an active partner in the ENERGY STAR program for EnterpriseServer, and the OpenScape 4000 EcoServer has been certified by ENERGY STAR programm specification.
OpenScape 4000 can also run on VMware® infrastructure on a Linux host operating system and is qualified for the usage in data centers. This virtual solution offers high scalability in the same way like EcoServer hardware. High security requirements will be ensured by VMware® features, such as vMotion and High Availability.
OpenScape 4000 SoftGate application
The OpenScape 4000 SoftGate application provides cost-effective VoIP functionalities with reliable branch survivability options and an easy IT integration in the OpenScape 4000 solution and management suite. This new software application offers full HiPath feature access for IP endpoints and SIP connectivity for trunking and subscriber, based upon a standard server with Linux SLES 11 SP1.
Any OpenScape 4000 SoftGate site integrates seamlessly in the communication system and network like any IPDA access point (AP 3700 IP with HG 3500) – in terms of features and administration.
The open architecture of the OpenScape 4000 SoftGate application enables integration in a VMware® virtualization environment.
this application can also be used for the software-based implementation of music on hold as well as synchronous and asynchronous announcement texts.
The Secure Remote Subscriber function supports secure remote operating while providing the complete feature set. With this application, customers can reduce capital cost (CAPEX) plus operational cost (OPEX) and deploy centralized applications with uniform user experience.
OpenScape Access is a cost effective, 19-inch modular solution that can be deployed in survivable branch solutions and into your IT infrastructure.
It consists of flexible, stackable and high scalable 1U modules that provide all required analog, digital and DECT interfaces of a branch solution with OpenScape Access 500 and OpenScape 4000 SoftGate.
Access Point Emergency concept for branches
OpenScape 4000 AP-Emergency completes the survivability functionality for access points (AP), OpenScape Access 500, and OpenScape 4000 SoftGate branches.
With APE, continued operation is also possible in the event of a failure of the central call control or WAN Link failure to central call control. In the event of host system failure, the survivability function can assume control of one or several different access points (AP 3700, OpenScape Access 500, and/or OpenScape 4000 SoftGate); thus ensuring sustained communication capabilities within the enterprise. A prerequisite is that the APs controlled by a survivability unit still have a functional IP infrastructure. This gives you optimal security for all access points and IP branches connected to the OpenScape 4000 communication server.
Signaling and Payload Survivability for IP branches
This function performs that voice is routed via PSTN and signaling is routed via IP or PSTN survivability connections for IP branches. This expanded survivability functionality can be used as an alternative dynamic path if the IP network fails, all available VoIP resources are occupied, or IP quality is found to be poor. Also, static configuration of payload routing over PSTN can be used for smooth transformations of existing branch offices from PSTN to IP networking.
This flexible mix between IP and TDM networking for payload and best possible signaling capabilities allows the migration to homogeneous branch networks and the implementation of centralized applications at individual pace.
