Oki Unveils IP Telephony Server with Enhanced IP Centrex Functions


A stronger collaborates with Oki’s IP-PBX “DISCOVERY01®” and adds a new PC-based Attendant Console to its Lineup

Tokyo, Japan, August 30, 2006 -- Oki Electric Industry Co., Ltd. (TSE: 6703) today unveiled its “IP CONVERGENCE® Server SS9100 Release 6”(SS9100 R6),the latest model in its IP telephony server “IP CONVERGENCE Server SS9100” lineup with enhanced IP Centrex functions. In addition, Oki adds “Com@WILL® Attendant,” a PC-based attendant console to its product line.

Oki has been expanding its SS9100 lineup since its launch in February 2004 by enhancing functions and increasing peripheral terminals and devices. SS9100 is capable of converging IP-PBX functions and business applications on Microsoft.NET, which enables companies to build private IP Centrex systems(*1) to control multiple offices using a single server. This helps companies to significantly reduce costs for PBX management and for layout and facility changes.

“Our strong track record with the SS9100 series proves our ability to provide excellent private IP Centrex solutions to enterprise users,” said Masashi Tsuboi, President of IP Systems Company at Oki Electric. “The newly released SS9100 R6 includes enhanced functions for IP Centrex systems, enabling companies to build IP Centrex systems more easily and at lower costs. We believe it will help companies improve management productivity, and increase their competitive edge.”

The “SS9100 R6” connects with DISCOVER01®, Oki’s large capacity IP-PBX. While customers using DISCOVERY01 can continue to use it as the PBX, they will now be able to build a private IP Centrex system. Oki also adds “Com@WILL® Attendant,” a PC-based attendant console, which is required for transferring phone calls. In addition to the basic operator-use functions, it includes a bulletin board function, a presence function and address book interaction, providing better service and convenience unique to softphones. Oki also added new service functions to its IP CONVERGENCE Server “SS9100 Type M” (SS9100 Type M), a model for middle and small size offices launched in October 2005, which is now equivalent to higher-end models.

*1 Private IP Centrex:
This is a form of IP telephony that integrates voice communication onto IP networks and concentrates PBXs that were conventionally installed at each location into one location for easier management and operation. This enables significant reduction in operating costs, maximizes the usage of existing equipment, and facilitates connection with internal business applications.
