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.
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.
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.
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.
