ADTRAN NetVanta Enterprise Communications Server


As a member of the NetVanta Unified Communications (UC) family, the NetVanta Enterprise Communications Server is a software-only package designed for Microsoft Windows platforms that provides a complete IP-based voice system for larger enterprises scaling from 15 to 2,000 users on a single server.This software also allows you to add centralized UC support for one or more external PBXs since it supports all the features of NetVanta UC Server. This feature-rich SIP-based platform offers a complete voice 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, auto-attendants, audio conferencing, through-the-set/overhead paging, and more.

SIP Telephony

NetVanta Enterprise Communication Server incorporates a full featured, standards-based SIP server to provide common telephony features that you expect from legacy PBXs. Combined with SIP-compliant telephones and soft-phones,gateways for connection to your existing service provider, NetVanta Enterprise Communication Server provides the telephony services you need at your business location, branch offices, home offices and for users on the move.

Unified Messaging (UM)

Unified Messaging is the ability to quickly and effectively retrieve and manage voicemail, faxes, and email messages, all from the familiar interface of your email client or from any telephone. NetVanta UC Server 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

NetVanta UC Server 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, NetVanta UC Server uses standard TIFF or PDF formats so that you can view faxes on any PC.

Text-to-Speech Engine

NetVanta UC Server includes a speech engine to provide text-to-speech conversion. This enables you to listen to e-mail messages from any telephone and speak text from your autoattendants,Interactive Voice Response (IVR)applications, or Personal Assistants.

Auto-Attendant and Personal Call Control

NetVanta UC Server 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/follow-me,and call notifications, all depending on the defined rules like the caller ID, time-of-day/day-of-week, and many others.

Paging Server

The paging server allows live paging, record and review paging, and paging using prerecorded announcements. Paging groups can be established to allow pages to be played over phone sets or overhead speakers in precise locations. Employees simply dial a code or use a speed dial from any handset and issue a page.


NetVanta UC Server 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. NetVanta UC Server 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. Adds, moves, and changes become easy, and security policies become universal throughout the company. In addition, with single user login, your users will never have to log into your business communications system separately.
