Introducing mobydick 7.10 - New Connector, New Phonebook, More InterOp, More Secure…
Friday 26th June 2015 saw the latest release of our mobydick phone system, and what a release it was. Full of new and improved features, enhanced functionality and increase ease of use, plus a whole load of new interoperability improvements all geared towards increasing productivity, optimising workflows, reducing repetitive tasks and saving costs.
New mobydick Connector - Simple, Quick and Efficient
So far in 2015, we have significantly expanded mobydick’s compatibility with other solutions. Therefore, it is hardly a surprise that with mobydick 7.10 we have developed a brand new mobydick connector to compliment the SIP provider database we released with the 7.09, thus greatly enhancing and facilitating integration with 3rd party solutions.
The mobydick Connector is designed to import and synchronise external data sources, including CSV files, LDAP Sources and other mobydick systems. This means that mobydick is able to import and update a range of data sets from phone books to users, locations and speed dials whilst simultaneously helping you avoid unnecessary duplicated data sets and saving yourself time and money.
Univention Corporate Server (UCS) Integration
Univention Corporate Server (UCS) is an innovative platform to efficiently operate and manage server applications and complete IT infrastructures. Thanks to its flexible Identity Management component, you can centrally and securely add and manage your users.
With the mobydick 7.10 release, mobydick now incorporates the UCS Connector, with which you can quickly and simply import your core user data via LDAP and then authenticate your mobydick users via the external IdM tool in UCS.
Of course, the option of mass user imports via CSV files and configuring passwords internally within mobydick is still available. With the UCS Connector, we offer another more advanced user synchronisation option.
New mobydick Telephone Book
We heard you when you said your wanted a new and improved phonebook. That of course means the mobydick telephone book has been completely revamped and now offers you the ability to include not only company contacts but also user personal via the private phone book. What’s more, both phone books are can now be displayed as contact lists using their corresponding menu tab. Moreover, via their menu tabs both phone books can be completely managed directly from within the mobydick client, providing users with the ability to add contacts during a call, from search results or from their call histories.
As the new display provides a complete overview of all your contacts, you can either simply scroll through the list or by using the Quick Alphabet function, narrow your search to more efficiently find your desired contact.
As a phone book administrator, you will also now be able to manage, update and / or delete company wide phone books directly from within the client.
Encryption and Codec Management
Under the newly added Telephony tab in the Web UI, you will now be able to add and modify system wide telephony settings. Of particular interest is SRTP management for supported devices, which use standard codecs or allow IAX and AMI connections.
snom M700 DECT IP Base Station Integration
The snom M700 base station enables the operation of both single and multi cell configurations and is therefore ideally suited for companies that require coverage across multiple floors or in larger office buildings..
With mobydick 7.10 you can now automatically provision the M700 DECT System and M65 Handsets, making their integration with mobydick as easy as possible, particularly in multi-cell systems. The DECT sender will now be automatically identified and will receive all the required settings from mobydick.
