Windows application supporting a print function. The
built-in fax server provides advanced features such
as DID fax, single number voice and fax number, and
individual “fax on demand” using the multimedia
personal call control capabilities. In addition, the

ormats so that you can view faxes on any PC.

enables you to listen to email messages from any telephone and speak text from your auto-attendants, IVR
applications, or Personal Assistants. Auto-attendant and
Personal Call Control The NetVanta UC Server provides
users the ability to create multiple auto-attendants and
Personal Business Assistants (PBAs) using a drag-anddrop, database-enabled, non-programmatic, graphical
service creation environment. Speech engine is optional.
Auto-attendant and Personal Call Control: Provide
users the ability to create multiple auto-attendants
and Personal Business Assistants (PBAs). These PBAs
integrate with Microsoft Outlook contacts and internal/
external databases, allowing employees to easily configure their own assistants to establish multifaceted
business rules for call screening, call routing, find-me/
follow-me, and call notifications, all depending on the
defined rules like the caller ID, time-of-day/ day-of-week,
and many others. These assistants provide unprecedented accessibility for employees to their customers,
co-workers and partners. Alternatively, the NetVanta UC
Server allows administrators to create and exclusively
assign assistants for each system user.
Administration: Installed in one of two modes—standalone or within Active Directory. When integrated with
Active Directory, the Microsoft Active Directory Users
and Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Snap-ins
can be used to administer and manage users. The
NetVanta UC Server allows your IT staff to manage your
business communications services using the same user
accounts and security policies used in your Windows
environment, without any programming or special
integration. Adds, moves, and changes become easy,
and security policies become universal throughout the
company. With single user login, your users will never
have to log into your business communications
system separately.
