The BlackBerry® Mobile Voice System integrates your organization's PBX phone system with the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server to extend desk phone features to BlackBerry devices. The BlackBerry MVS is designed to do the following:

Integrate with the phone application on BlackBerry devices so that users can make calls from and receive calls to your organization's work numbers

Extend commonly used PBX features that are available from users' desk phones to their BlackBerry devices

Provide simplified access to your organization’s voice mail system

Provide Voice over Wi-Fi® access to desk phone features for users of Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerry devices

Extend the security features of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to authenticate BlackBerry device users to the BlackBerry MVS and your organization's PBX phone system

Permit you to manage the BlackBerry MVS from a single web administration console

Incorporate the use of templates and classes of service to manage users' access to their work numbers and phone features

Permit you to configure the BlackBerry MVS to support high availability to help enhance the consistency and reliability of your organization's BlackBerry MVS implementation

System requirements: Telephony environment

Item

DTMF

ANI number (Calling party)

DID/DDI number (Called party)

Requirement

Your organization's telephony environment must be able to perform the following actions:

detect and intercept DTMF tones from the cellular call leg between the PBX and BlackBerry® devices

notify the BlackBerry MVS Server of the DTMF tones using KPML notification

emit DTMF tones into the audio path when the BlackBerry® Mobile Voice System requests them

send DTMF tones that are at least 100 milliseconds in duration to devices

If your organization's telephony environment includes components, such as a voice mail server, that receive DTMF tones from the BlackBerry MVS, the telephony environment must be able to present the DTMF tones in the correct format (for example, RFC 2833, in-band media, H.323).

The Calling Line ID of a received call identifies the BlackBerry MVS call that is presented to the device. The Calling Line ID must be configured in the MVS Console to match the ANI that your organization's telephony environment plans to use for all BlackBerry MVS calls.

Any BlackBerry MVS calls that a device makes must use the ANI that you configured in your organization's telephony environment so that the called party can see the caller ID that is configured for the BlackBerry MVS user.

If your organization has a hunt group that is configured in the PBX with multiple outgoing trunks, and each trunk has its own ANI number, you must type each ANI number in the MVS Console.

If you configure your organization's BlackBerry MVS for BlackBerry device– initiated calling, you must configure a DID/DDI number in your organization's telephony environment. You configure the DID/DDI number in the MVS Console for each MVS Session Manager. The DID/DDI number is used to provision the user accounts that you configured for the device.
