1 Getting Started

This chapter introduces the NetVanta Enterprise Communications Server client application in Personal Business Assistant mode and presents some basic operations. This chapter covers the following topics:

Overview on page 7

Overview

The UC Server application in Personal Business Assistant mode provides not only the most commonly used unified communications features, but also the opportunity to design your own auto attendent services and to record customized announcements. Master the basic functions and manage your personalized greetings and delivery features with efficiency and ease, right from your desktop. The user interface is remarkably user-friendly.

The UC Server is integrated with Microsoft Outlook so that you can access voice, fax, and email messages from a single inbox. The type of each new message is signaled by a distinctive icon that you can recognize at a glance, just as you are familiar with the envelope that indicates reception of an email message.

You can use a local or remote telephone to log on to the system and retrieve not only voice messages but email. With a single keypad command, the text-to-speechengine reads email messages to you over the phone. You are also informed if you have received fax messages.

Please note that your system administrator needs to set your call answering mode to Personal Business Assistant for you to have access to this mode.

All users on the system manage, and are managed by, user profiles, identities, and authorizations.

User Authentication

User Profile

User Profile:

Authenticated users have a user profile in the NetVanta UC Server that manages their business assistants and their message stores across multiple identites and devices.

Identities

Business Communications:

Various SIP-CompatibleDevices:

Each user can have multiple identities associated with traditional telephony equipment such as PBXs.

Each user can have multiple identites associated with different SIP devices

Authorizations give some users access to the profiles of other users, for management purposes. Likewise, users can have access to any number of other users, provided they have been granted authorization to do so.

Users can have any number of identities on the system, such as an extension number. Through the user profile, users can manage the identities that are associated with their profile.

The UC Server is integrated with Active Directory.

For more information about the UC Server, refer to the ADTRAN website at http:// kb.adtran.com. Here you will find reference materials, a quick reference card, and SIP phone user guides.
