The new Aarenet VoIP System Release 6.8 was released end of June 2017 for production. Effective immediately, systems deployed at new customers will be equipped with the new release. An update service for existing installations can be offered without impacting the availability of active service.

Further to planned software maintenance, new features and feature updates, the OPUS bandwidth optimised codec support is implemented. This voice codec enables improved speech quality in those cases where available bandwidth is limited.

Integration of new features for the call spam blocker solution Katia ensures blocking of incoming calls arriving from identified call centers and registered unwanted callers. The list of numbers is continuously updated based on calls received on the system. The service can be activated or deactivated on a per account base. The spam blocker can now also be activated for smaller carriers using Aarenet’s white label solution for Katia.

The callthrough feature offers enhanced connectivity for the “an IP-Phone” smartphone client if network availability and data connectivity is missing. All calls can be routed through the mobile native client to a predefined number in the system and from there routed to the desired number. Combined with call forwarding of incoming calls to a mobile number yields an powerful FMC (Fixed Mobile Convergence) alternative.

Several new IP Phones such as the Gigaset IP-phones series Maxwell Basic, 3 and 10, the DECT phones N510 and multi-cell N720, the new Snom 715, 725 and 765 and the Yealink T23G, T27G, T29G, T41S, T42S, T46S, T48S are now integrated into the auto provisioning. The Aarenet auto provisioning feature is an easy and effective solution to provision the IP-phones and to administer user programmable keys and settings on the phones through the web GUI of the system.

Additional security features further reduce the risk of fraudulent system attacks.

Aarenet’s webRTC based UCC solution “an Meeting” was enhanced with a connectivity interface into the system which now enables external dial in from any phone into the conference bridge together with a combined programming and provisioning interface.

Details of all included features will be communicated upon request.
