ADTRAN NetVanta UC Server
Unified Communications Server



NetVanta® Unified Communications (UC) Server is a software-only package designed for Microsoft Windows® platforms that provides full UC capabilities with existing PBXs. It is perfect for organizations that already have one or more PBXs, but want the added benefits of unified communications. The NetVanta UC Server is capable of supporting UC on one or more different types of PBXs from most manufacturers (including ADTRAN®, Avaya®, Nortel®, Cisco®, Mitel®, NEC®, and Siemens®) to provide a centralized UC solution. This feature-rich platform offers advanced UC services like unified messaging, voice mail, integrated messaging, fax server, graphical drag-anddrop service creation, inbound and outbound Interactive Voice Response (IVR) services, personal assistants, one number services, call redirection services, notifications, auto-attendants and mobile support. The NetVanta UC Server scales up to 2,000 users on a single server.

PBX Integration

If you have an existing investment in legacy business communications systems (PBXs), the NetVanta UC Server lets you leverage your existing investment and transition to IP telephony at your own pace. With its ability to support multiple heterogeneous PBXs at the same time, the NetVanta UC Server can provide all of its UC features on your legacy PBXs.

Unified Messaging

Unified messaging 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 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

The NetVanta UC Server includes a full fax server. Desktop faxing is available from any Windows application supporting a print function. The built-in fax server provides advanced features such as DID fax, single number voice and fax number, and individual “fax on demand” using the multimedia personal call control capabilities. In addition, the NetVanta UC Server uses standard TIFF or PDF formats so that you can view faxes on any PC.

Text-to-speech Engine

The NetVanta UC Server includes 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 UC Server provides users the ability to create multiple auto-attendants and Personal Business Assistants (PBAs)using its award-winning drag-and-drop, databaseenabled, non-programmatic, graphical service creation environment. These PBAs 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. These assistants provide unprecedented accessibility for employees to their customers, co-workers and partners. Alternatively, the NetVanta UC Server allows administrators to create and exclusively assign assistants for each system user.


The 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. The 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.
