The new Aarenet VoIP System Release 6.3 was released end of June 2016 for production. Effective immediately, all new systems will be equipped with the new release. An update service for existing installations can be offered without impacting the availability of active service.

The new Release supports WebRTC services and includes additional features for the virtual PBX integration and extensions on the Aarenet security suite. Other system related functionality include the Fixed Mobile Convergence feature integration where the system can recognize mobile phones based on the asserted Call ID. The integration of a WebRTC media server supports the handling of browser initiated voice and video calls and is a further feature in the Aarenet Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) Suite.

In a combined residential and corporate system setup, the system administrator can now select for each single vPBX instance a dedicated trunk prefix. Omitting the trunk prefix is beneficial to integrate stand-alone SIP clients not fully integrated in the system and enables dialing of stored contacts from the native contacts without the need to define re-writing rules. Virtual PBX users can now also send SMS messages to internal subscribers. This service needs an active linked SMS gateway.

Next to further performance improvement and general maintenance, the new version includes the new CPE Center which supports interactive CPE configuration for mass CPE deployment environments.
