Commenting on the release, Philippe Parenton, Product Manager, Orange Business Services said: âThere is increasing demand for free movement of information and personnel between locations, driven by a more globalised approach to doing business as well as disaster recovery concerns. With V36 we are introducing enhancements to user functionality, connectivity, management and maintenance that further facilitate free-seating and information sharing at a global, enterprise-wide level.â
To facilitate traderâs mobility (free-seating), V36 introduces automated international dialling from any location, and enhanced conferencing capabilities to meet the needs of globalised operations by enabling conferencing between multiple sites.
Every turret now comes with all the available languages embedded - including English, French, German, Greek, Japanese and Arabic. Traders can therefore configure any workstation to their own settings within minutes, using the proven Etrali touch-screen technology.
V36 also contains powerful new tools for administrators. Individual tradersâ views can now be restricted to the SDNs assigned to their group, facilitating the creation of Chinese walls, and simplifying tradersâ directory searches.
Additional benefits of V36 include:
Â· Smart low-cost routing providing international calling at local rates
Â· Up to three IP addresses per turret
Â· Easy transfer of directories between systems using LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol)
Â· Easier upgrades through remote downloading of software, reducing intervention time and minimizing disturbance of traders.
Also announced today are enhanced ACF or Advanced Call Functions. ACFs are browser-based tools designed for use on a PC alongside Etrali turrets, providing a richer interface with data such as call history and directory searches. Functionality includes LDAP directory searches and the capability to establish, edit and delete broadcast groups. Enhancements due to roll out in 2007 include active configuration displays and the capability for traders to edit their own configurations.
âACFs provide traders with an enhanced user experience without the need for installing software on their desktop,â said Product Manager Oliver Bradford. âThey also enable us to be more responsive to functionality requests, by rolling out enhancements independently of the annual systems upgrades.â
