Installation & Administration

In a few steps to a central company address book

 
 

XPhone Virtual Directory is implemented on the server side and is immediately available to all users - without having to make any adjustments to the workstations. 
Thanks to the setup wizard, preconfigured field links and a drag-and-drop connection the installation is completed in just a few steps.

Administration is very simple. A setup wizard helps you to add new data sources - fast and easily. You can connect almost all existing data sources: Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange Server, ERP and CRM applications, LDAP directories, or CSV and text files.

The field links for frequently used data sources and client interfaces are already preconfigured (Active Directory, Outlook contact folders, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, etc.). If the default assignments are not sufficient, you can simply assign the database fields using drag & drop. Entirely without previous programming knowledge.

You can allocate one or more fields from the data source to a field in the XPhone Virtual Directory. For example, you can allocate the Form of address, First name and Last name fields to the Display name field. Or create a combined phone number field from separate phone number fields with country code, area code and business number. Sharing data base fields helps when postal codes and places are summarised in your source data base, for example. For professionals by professionals: you can even execute your own .NET Skript code for particular modifications to data base fields.

New end devices and applications can be set up just as easily as linking new data sources which can access the address data provided by XPhone Virtual Directory. A setup wizard supports you when adding new client interfaces and guides you through the setup in only a few steps. Entirely without any expert knowledge, you can set up your own LDAP server at a few clicks of the mouse. If you wish, several parallel instances can even be set up on various ports.

Phone number conversion

You can specify one dialling parameter per data source or client interface with which XPhone Virtual Directory automatically completes phone numbers as required. These dialling parameters are used to put contact phone numbers from various data sources in a standardised format. 

This ensures that users always find the right contact data. Simply ingenious: This does not require changing the phone numbers in the original data. All standard phone number formats are recognised, so to speak.

No duplicate data management

Original data is not replicated in the XPhone Virtual Directory data base. To ensure that data remains current in the index, you can use the start and stop time as well as an interval of your choice to specify when and how often XPhone Virtual Directory should automatically update the index.

You can specify the week days and times at which the XPhone Virtual Directory data base index is to be updated. The index comprises the indexed fields of all data records read from the linked data sources. The XPhone Virtual Directory data base uses this index to find data in the linked data sources faster when searches are initiated. As the search result, users do not receive the data from the index but rather the original data from the linked data source. 

Specifying access rights

XPhone Virtual Directory supports Windows authentication. This means that users are automatically identified as soon as they log on at their computer.

You can specify which users or user groups and which end devices and applications are authorised to access the data sources. Define the regulations governing access to the data sources. Allow access by all users, authenticated users only or anonymous users, or grant access to users and groups from your Active Directory. You can even restrict access to the IP address area. For example, access from telephones within a VLAN.
