ADTRAN NetVanta Business Communications System


As a member of the NetVanta Unified Communications (UC) family, the NetVanta Business Communications System is a bundled system of hardware and software combining the ADTRAN NetVanta 7000 Series IP PBXs and the NetVanta UC Server software. The NetVanta Business Communication System, a combination hardware/software system, targets small to medium enterprises requiring full unified UC capabilities with a complete IP-based voice system supporting up to 100 users. This feature-rich platform offers a complete voice and data solution with advanced UC services like unified messaging, voice mail, integrated messaging, fax server, graphical drag and drop service creation, inbound and outbound IVR services, personal assistants, one number services, call redirection services, notifications, and auto-attendants.

NetVanta 7000 Series

ADTRAN's NetVanta 7000 Series provides an innovative Voice over IP (VoIP) communications solution for business to simplify the migration to VoIP and resolve complicated network assessments and equipment interoperability issues. A single chassis provides a complete LAN-to-WAN infrastructure, simplifying IP convergence by combining multiple functions in one compact platform: integrated IP PBX, router, Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch, firewall, SIP Gateway, wireless LAN controller and even Virtual Private Networking (VPN).

NetVanta Unified Communications (UC) Server

NetVanta UC Server is a software-only package designed for Microsoft Windows platforms that provides full UC capabilities with the NetVanta 7000 Series. This feature-rich software offers advanced UC services like unified messaging, voice mail, integrated messaging, fax server, graphical drag-and-drop service creation, inbound and outbound IVR services, personal assistants, one number services, call redirection services, notifications, auto-attendants and mobile support.

Unified Messaging (UM)

UM is the ability to quickly and effectively retrieve and manage voice mail, faxes, and email messages, all from the familiar interface of your email client or from any telephone. The NetVanta Business Communications System integrates with Microsoft Outlook/Exchange Server, Lotus Notes/Domino, Google Gmail, and a host of other email clients with Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP4).

Fax Server

The NetVanta Business Communications System includes a full fax server. The built-in fax server provides advanced features such as DID fax, and individual “fax on demand” using the multimedia personal call control capabilities. In addition, the NetVanta Business Communications System uses standard TIFF or PDF formats so that you can view faxes on any PC.

Text-to-speech Engine

The NetVanta Business Communications System supports a speech engine to provide text-to-speech conversion. This enables you to listen to email messages from any telephone and speak text from your auto-attendants, IVR applications, or Personal Assistants.

Auto-attendant and Personal Call Control

The NetVanta Business Communications System provides the ability to create multiple auto-attendants using its award-winning drag-and-drop, database-enabled, graphical service creation environment. These assistants integrate with Microsoft Outlook contacts and internal/external databases, allowing employees to easily configure their own assistants to establish multifaceted business rules for call screening, call routing, find-me/followme, and call notifications, all depending on the defined rules like the caller ID, time-ofday/ day-of-week, and many others. These assistants provide unprecedented accessibility for employees to their customers, co-workers and partners. Alternatively, the NetVanta Business Communications System allows administrators to create and exclusively assign assistants for each system user.


The NetVanta Business Communications System can be installed in one of two modes—standalone or within a customer’s Active Directory. When integrated with Active Directory, the Microsoft Active Directory Users and Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Snap-ins can be used to administer and manage users. The NetVanta Business Communications System allows your IT staff to manage your business communications services using the same user accounts and security policies used in your Windows environment, without any programming or special integration.
