ShoreTel’s unique, purpose-built distributed architecture forms the heart of our unified communications platform, allowing for a rich feature set and highly reliable voice services. The result is a robust, redundant system with no single point of failure.
ShoreTel Voice Switches are purpose-built, solid-state appliances that provide IP PBX phone system capabilities, call handling and trunking with unmatched reliability and availability. Voice switches have an estimated life of 15 years.
Each switch and site functions as an independent call processor. In the event of wide area network (WAN) failure, the phone system will continue to place and receive calls, because the switches are locally registered with the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN).
By adding a single redundant switch to the phone system network (n+1), back-up is provide to the entire system in the case of a switch failure. Together, this means the phone system has 99.999% reliability for 100% peace of mind.
ShoreTel Connect Director is a Web-based tool that provides a single-screen view of the entire enterprise system, showing the performance status and health of all key components, at all times.
Administrators can manage voice routing, voicemail, auto-attendant, conferencing, instant messaging, and basic automated call distribution (ACD) capabilities for every site in the network. This eliminates the need for multiple management systems for different PBXs, sites, and basic applications. Integrated software distribution for voice switches, IP phones, and desktop applications helps to reduce support overhead and ensure system optimization.
ShoreTel Connect Director recognizes all active IP phones on the network and configures them automatically. As new users are created, they are automatically assigned an extension, mailbox, and auto-attendant profile. Administrators can set up a user with integrated conferencing and instant messaging services simply by clicking on the user's page. Extremely easy to learn and use, Connect Director helps to improve administrator productivity, lowers ownership costs, and reduces strain on IT resources.
The ShoreTel CDR service incorporates call records for all locations into a single, unified database on the ShoreTel Connect server. The service also aggregates call records into a text file for use by third-party call accounting packages. A comprehensive set of predefined reports comes bundled with ShoreTel Connect Director to use in determining system utilization and optimizing performance, such as WAN bandwidth utilization.
The ShoreTel Connect app is the center of user engagement. The interface integrates personal settings, call handling modes, directory, presence, conferencing, instant messaging, screen sharing and video to create a streamlined, intuitive experience of unified communications. ShoreTel Connect makes faster connections, simplifies collaboration, raises the bar on customer engagement, helps mobile users stay connected and integrates easily with existing applications.
