1 Email and Voice Mail Duet Julian Datta Brett Johnson Exchange 2007 Unified Messaging:

2 Why We Need Unified Messaging Problems of disunity Voice and e-mail as separate inboxes Different servers, access mechanisms Desktop software (e-mail) Phone (voice mail) Fax messages Stand-alone fax machines Users and administrators must manage their messages from multiple locations with different tools “With Exchange Server 2007, we look forward to being able to communicate better…Will this technology help us sell more golf clubs? In this case, yes, we believe that better communication will help us sell more golf clubs.” —Eric Hart, End-User Computing Manager, PING Inc.

3 Exchange Server Unified Messaging Delivering on a clear, simple vision Convenient, integrated access to your vital business communications Reducing costs, increasing operational efficiency by consolidating infrastructure, training – Unified store, transport, directory Increasing client reach of Exchange to the telephone – “Anywhere access” to your messages, calendar, contacts “Having anywhere access to e-mail and voice mail is going to be a huge benefit... People can access information and interact with it using a variety of devices, at work, at home, and on the road; and all of this translates directly into productivity.” —Steven Presley, Senior IT Engineer for Messaging, QUALCOMM

4 Exchange Server UM Architecture VoIP protocols (SIP, RTP, T.38) between UM and IP PBX/gateway Works with many varieties of PBX Well suited to site consolidation Scalable, reliable

5 Preparing the System for Callers Enable Users for UM – Exchange Management Console – Exchange Management Shell Dial Plan – Log in to Outlook Voice Access – New User Dialog (Record Name, Greeting) Call UM-enabled user – Hear greeting – Record voice message

6 Preparing Exchange UM for Callers Demo

Automated Attendant – Create New Auto Attendant (Speech Enabled) Customize Welcome Greeting Configure Business Hours, Time Zone Create Menu, Add Menu Options – Use menu option Telephone keypad Speak the option name – Transfer to user by speaking their name

14 Availability through Redundancy PBX routes calls to available VoIP gateways VoIP gateways route calls to available UM servers UM service redirects calls to worker process UM accommodates outage in mailbox, transport, DC Maintains service if possible Service Worker process

15 Why UM Scales Better than VM Typical MORG/LORG voice mail systems have 16 ports (or fewer) – Covers up to ~1000 voice mailboxes – Approx. 10× systems (160 ports) for 10K ORG UM can cover 10K users with ~80 ports – Voice messages in Outlook (no call required) – Consolidation of spare capacity 2 UM servers can replace 16 VM servers – (1 + 1) configuration for redundancy – Operating costs greatly reduced

16 Compliance, Discoverability Some confusion/concern about voice mail retention Legal opinion (Covington & Burling LLP) – px px – “…no aspect of Exchange alters, by increasing or decreasing, the record retention obligations of … organizations [using it] in the U.S. or E.U.” Exchange can help the customer – Many features to implement compliance policy – Easier to locate and sort voice mail, if needed
