This is a standards-based messaging solution that can be implemented as a stand-alone voice mail system with or without access from and browser clients, or implemented using Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino as the message store. A single Modular Messaging system can have any combination of the Modular Messaging Aria, AUDIX, or Serenade telephone user interfaces (TUIs) making it easy for customers to migrate their user base. There are a number of reliability features that maximize the availability in an IP world. Modular Messaging is scalable to 144 ports with the Avaya message store and to 240 ports with an back end, so it is highly scalable meeting the needs of large customers and those looking for server consolidation. Modular Messaging has a number of enhanced mobility capabilities built in helping to bring together real-time and non-real-time communications.UCC Speech AccessUCC Speech Access, as the chart shows, provides eyes-free, hands-free, speaker- independent, speech access to a virtual desktop. Don’t be confused by competitive offers. UCC is much more robust than the other solutions providing greater access to these capabilities and greater empowerment in terms of what you can do with them and how easy it is to use them.Message NetworkingModular Messaging, being standards based, supports SMTP/MIME as its networking protocol. To allow it to co-exist within an existing messaging network of Avaya and non-Avaya voic systems, we’d deploy Message Networking which will provide protocol conversion allowing all traditional Avaya messaging systems to continue to use their optimum protocol. In addition, it allows customers to move to a hub & spoke network for transport and directory management thus reducing management and administration costs, and can ease the migration to a full IP messaging network in the future. It also has a robust Enterprise List tool specifically designed for sending messages to diverse groups across multiple locations.
3 Avaya Modular Messaging Message NetworkingUCCSpeechAccessAvaya IPMessagingModular MessagingModular MessagingThe cornerstone solution of the Avaya IP messaging portfolio is Modular Messaging. This is a standards-based messaging solution that can be implemented as a stand-alone voice mail system with or without access from and browser clients, or implemented using Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino as the message store.A single Modular Messaging system can have any combination of the Modular Messaging Aria, AUDIX, or Serenade telephone user interfaces (TUIs) making it easy for customers to migrate their user base.There are a number of reliability features that maximize the availability in an IP world.Modular Messaging is scalable to 144 ports with the Avaya message store and to 240 ports with an back end, so it is highly scalable meeting the needs of large customers and those looking for server consolidation.Modular Messaging has a number of enhanced mobility capabilities built in helping to bring together real-time and non-real-time communications.To provide user‘s with a unified desktop solution does MM work with any IMAP4 capable client and provide add-in applications for MS Outlook and Lotus Notes. This ability to see all messages stored in a user‘s Modular Messaging mailbox is independent whether a fully unified system with an store integration has been deployed or a standalone voic system with an Avaya message store.
4 Messaging Flexibility & Investment Protection Modular MessagingSize as you need itSmall to largeCan grow and evolve in step with your IP Telephony systemChoice of store as you have itAvaya Message Storage Server (standalone)Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino (fully unified)Resilient as you want itStandard availability message store with single application serverHigh availability message store, N+1 redundancy with application serversOffline call answer, offline TUI accessFamiliar as it should beChoice of telephone user interfaces: Aria ®, AUDIX ®, Serenade®Choice of languages for the user and callerIntegration with existing Avaya and IT applications for supportModularity and flexibility is the key: It should be the customer‘s choice what he gets, depending on his needs.A single Modular Messaging system can consist of up to 5 (with Avaya message store) or 10 (with message store) MAS Messaging Application Servers that host the ports and provide the interface between the central mailbox store and the outside telephony world. The customer can start small with a single system and add ports and MAS application servers as his resilience or port capacity needs grow and require. A single Modular Messaging system can host up to 10,000 mailboxes on an Avaya message store server (MSS) or up to 100,000 if an backend store like MS Exchange or Lotus Domino is used. If more mailboxes are required, then separate systems can be networked together to provide an even bigger environment.Every customer wants a unified voic system, however the level of unification differs and is often dictated by corporate processes and security needs. MM offers the customer the choice ranging from a standalone voic system to various levels of integration into the existing data infrastructure to storing all system, user and message data centrally in the user‘s mailbox hosted on MS Exchange or Lotus Domino.Disregarding of the storage does MM offer a variety of backup and resilience options. If an store is used, then every backup or security mechanism already in place for it can be used for the additional messages received or created by Modular Messaging thus giving voic automatically the SOX compliance a customer has in place for his communication. A standalone Avaya message store can be backed up automatically to DVD ROM or onto a network drive via LAN connectivity.On the port level can MAS application servers back up each other and provide load balancing. If one MAS application server fails can calls be rerouted to another one without callers nor users experiencing any loss of functionality.To make Modular Messaging the obvious choice for customers that want to refreshen their existing voic environment can MM provide users with their telephone user interface of choice in multiple languages. The classic Avaya interfaces ARIA, AUDIX or SERENADE on MM make sure users can just start using a new Modular Messaging system and the need for end-user training can be kept at a minimum.If a customer wants to start with traditional telephony and later migrate to IP telephony will MM follow any customer on this path. MM provides a choice of connection methods to Avaya and other major vendor PBXs.
5 Stay On Top Of Your Messages Message Waiting IndicationCall Me(Rule-based message notification outcall)Notify MeYou have received a voicUnified desktop (Outlook, Notes, any client)Web User InterfaceIn our current fast moving and changing world where everybody seems to become overwhelmed by the amount of messages and information available, it is the more important to be able to access ones messages whenever needed with whatever device is available. Notifications for messages should be delivered to wherever I am, but only for those messages that I am really waiting for.Unified Desktop: Modular Messaging offers users the choice of accessing their messages by using an existing client application via a standard IMAP4 connection or with additional add-in applications for MS Outlook or Lotus Notes. This provides users with a unified messaging look-and-feel combined with an ease-of-use disregarding of the storage type used.Web User Interface: If an Avaya message store (MSS) is used then the additionally (free of charge) provided Avaya Web Messaging Application can be installed on any web server and used to access the mailbox on Modular Messaging, as well as, another account via IMAP4. In case a fully unified storage on an server is used, then any existing web application to access a user‘s mailbox becomes automatically the means to also access any messages deposited by Modular Messaging.Message Waiting Indication: The message waiting indication (MWI) at a user‘s phone has been and is still THE notification that a caller left a message. Modular Messaging of course provides this with additional flexibility.CallMe: If a users is not at his desk, he will not be able to see and message waiting indication on a phone. In this case can Modular Messaging make outgoing calls to actively notify users. These notification calls can a user activate via rules and with it specify different phone numbers depending on time-of-day, day-of-week, the sender of a message and, of course, the message type and importance.NotifyMe: If a user rather wants to have a written notification, can Modular Messaging send an message to one or several SMTP addresses, which could be a standard account or also a Blackberry account. By sending such a notification message to an SMS gateway may users also receive SMS notifications to their mobile phone.
6 Keep Track Of Your Calls Call forwarding based on user defined rules (time, day)Forwarding to one or more numbersfilter calls by caller name (Call screening)Find MeIf you are out of the office, then often the only way for users to keep track of calls is to do a fixed call forwarding on their desk phone to a mobile phone with their mobile phone mailbox answering missed calls or to a team secretary/assistance. This fixed call forwarding breaks the communication flow and removes any calls and any messages received on the mobile phone mailbox from a company's communication environment.So apart from the fact that any proprietary information that a caller has for a user ends up with another person or on a mobile phone mailbox and such can create possible legal implications, such an information cannot easily be used in company processes any more, like forwarded or replied to. This makes communication hard and slow, which is something to be avoided if a company wants to be competitive today.FindMe: Modular Messaging offers the users the option of having all their calls that are forwarded from their corporate extension to their corporate voic mailbox to first be forwarded to the number under which they are currently available – based on time-of-day, day-of-week rules -. The Modular Messaging system screens all calls by asking the caller to speak his name and then present a recording of this name to the user, giving him the choice to accept or reject the call. That way can users decide when calls are forwarded, to which destinations and, of course, which calls are important enough to be taken. If a user rejects or he cannot answer a call will Modular Messaging present the caller with the user‘s personal greeting and offer the choice of recording a message or breaking out to an assistance by pressing ZERO.Caller Notification: When at a desk do callers normally have a missed calls list. When on the road then keeping track of missed calls can be a problem. Modular Messaging can offer callers the option of having a user notified of his call. A caller simply presses a button when listening to a user’s greeting. The notification sent is a plain text message with call specific data, like DID number, time of call, etc. to one or several SMTP addresses. If such a notification is sent to an SMS gateway, will users receive an SMS notification of missed calls.Caller Notification
7 Offer Your Callers The Service They Deserve! Find Me…please speak your name after the tone so I may say who is calling. (Call Screening)…please stay on the line. I am trying to locate John Doe. (call forwarding)Auto attendant directory dialing…please enter the number of the person you wish to call……please spell the name of the person you wish to reach…Call Notification…receive an SMTP message with information on your missed call!Personal Assistant…please press  and you will be transferred to my personal assistant!Caller Applications…caller menus…information numbers…leaving messages…call transfer…options based on holidays and time-of-day.In today‘s ever more competitive landscape it is more and more important to offer callers the options of communicating easily and receiving the level of speedy response they expect.FindMe: The one-number mobility service provided by Modular Messaging. Instead of going straight to recording will MM try to forward the call to one of the numbers a user specified in time-of-day, day-of-week based rules. To give a user the option of hiding and only accepting those calls he is waiting for will Modular Messaging screen all calls. I.e. it will ask the caller to speak his name and will then play a recording of this name to the user giving him the chance to accept or reject a call. Any rejected or unanswered calls will go into a user‘s mailbox, where a caller has the option of leaving a message or be transferred out to assistance by pressing ZERO. With this feature a user no longer needs to make all his numbers known. The office number will do and MM will make sure any important call will be delivered to the user or offer the caller the option of leaving a voice message on the corporate voic system.Caller Applications: Callers sometimes want to be able to self service their need. Just some piece of information or perhaps to be transferred to a group or person flexibly. Linked to a specific mailbox, extension or simply standalone can MM provide the means to play announcements to callers, record messages that are delivered to an or voic mailbox and transfer calls. These options can stand for themselves or be combined in DTMF based menu structures. Time-of-day or holiday dependencies for such menus or caller applications give system administrators the flexibility to easily create self service solutions for their callers at no additional cost.Call Notification: A caller can request a notification. Like a missed calls list, but on demand and delivered as text message with call specific information to a configured account. If an SMS gateway is available, then this notification can also be sent as an SMS to a mobile phone.Personal Assistant: Some callers ending up in a mailbox do not want to leave a voic , but want to speak to a live person. By pressing ZERO any time during the greeting will a caller be transferred to the personal assistance of the user or a centralized reception desk.AutoAttendant: A caller that does not wish to leave a message may be offered the option to be transferred to another employee or extension of his choice. By either entering the extension number or spelling the required subscriber‘s name will a caller be transferred for live personal caller care.Multilingual System Prompting: A Modular Messaging system may host all 3 telephone user interface (TUI) variants (ARIA, Audix, Serenade) simultaneously, as well as, several different system prompt languages. Users and callers alike are so able to use the system in the TUI and language that they require.Multilingual System Prompting

Lower installation (not as many sites to install), lower maintenance over a 5 year period (lower per mailbox maintenance pricing for large installations and less hardware to maintain) Savings for some customers as an example 150+ sites consolidated to 4 regional centers can save up to $5M over 5 years. Let us run a TCO analysis of your current VM network and see what is possible to achieveSIP will allow further savings because of 48 ports per MAS (lower acquisition costs) and allow remote PBXs to be tied into Centralize VM server on a Peer to Peer path versus the traditional PBX networking approach so not all voice traffic will need to pushed across the network reducing bandwidth requirements and PBX resources

A customer can choose.Resilience for MAS application servers and call answering:For MAS application servers do not host any primary user, system or message information does a user or caller not depend on accessing a mailbox via a specially dedicated server. Application servers can provide live backup to each other or load balancing. If one server fails or has to be taken offline for any reason will the system still carry on answering calls and providing users with access to their mailboxes or callers with the ability to leave messages, still the total number of available ports may be reduced.Resilience for the message store:Due to unforeseen reasons may it happen, that the message store is not accessible by the MAS application servers. In this case do they go into a so-called ‚offline mode‘. Without interruption will they carry on taking calls and playing announcements. If a caller records a message for a user mailbox is the message buffered locally and later, when the store is available again, transferred to the central mailbox store.Additionally may an administrator activate an offline storage folder. This folder can reside on a file server on the customer network or could be a folder on one of the MAS application servers. Any call answer messages left during normal or offline working mode would now be kept in this offline folder as a duplicate for a configurable number of hours and after that aged and deleted automatically.If callers on the road want to access their messages, they will be notified by the system during login that the system is not in a normal working mode, but will be granted access to all messages left during the offline period and to any messages residing in the offline folder.Whether desktop users are still able to access their Modular Messaging mailbox from their graphical user interface depends on the status of the storage server and the network connectivity between their desktop and the central message store.
