3. Features in Detail

myPortal to go

integrates mobile phones into the OpenScape Business communication system. This gives the users access to unified communications features analogous to myPortal Smart or myPortal for Desktop / Outlook. via the mobile phone.

myPortal to go

controls the UC client of OpenScape UC Business directly from the mobile phone and provides access to

Unified Communications Features such as presence status, directories and journals.

myPortal to go

can be used both on pure GSM mobile phones as well as dual-mode phones. For the use of myPortal to go on GSM devices, a mobile phone contract with data option (flat rate recommended) is required. It can be used in combination with smartphone / fixed desk phone or just with smartphone.

The mobility solution myPortal to go is available as a web based variant, additionally to the mobile UC apps for

Android and IOS. The web variant provides myPortal to go functionality for HTML5 capable smartphones with operating systems like Windows 8, Blackberry 10 or Firefox for which no apps are available. The web based variant does not have to be installed and updates are carried out automatically.

The myPortal to go mobile App can be downloaded from an app store and installed on the appropriate mobile device.

When the myPortal to go mobile App is started on the device, it recreates all the user interfaces locally on the mobile

device. For details see chapter 8.

The functionality of the web based solution is almost identical to those of the apps with the exception of access to the local phone directory, which is only possible with the myPortal to go apps. (For the web based solution, local phone contacts have to be imported before they can be accessed). myPortal to go supports the following operating modes:

Without Voice over IP(VoIP) option o

Mobile usage, including One Number Service o

3.1. One Number Service

The One Number Service (ONS) effectively makes mobile phones operate as fixed network extensions. This means that subscribers can be reached under one phone number world-wide and can identify themselves only by their respective fixed network numbers. Additional advantage of the One Number Service is the busy indicator for the mobile subscriber.

3.2. Presence Status

The Presence status indicates the availability of internal subscribers and mobile users in the Favorites list, the internal directory and through voicemail announcements.

Presence status can be changed in myPortal to go, in the phone menu of the voicemail box (Voicemail), with myPortal for OpenStage and in other UC clients.

A return time to the office can be scheduled for every change in the presence status (except for Office).

In addition, a destination to which the calls are to be forwarded can be defined.

The following statuses are available:

Office

Meeting

Sick

Break

Gone Out

Vacation

Lunch

Gone Home

Do not Disturb

Within the Favorites and the internal directory list the connection status of internal subscribers is presented:

Subscriber receives an internal call

Subscriber receives an external call

Subscriber is calling

Subscriber is on the phone (internal call)

Subscriber is on the phone (external call)

3.2.1. Presence Status-based call forwarding

Status-based call forwarding enables the user to forward calls to voicemail box or a special phone number based on his presence status, for example, to his mobile phone if you he is out of the office or to his delegated representative during his vacation.

Call forwarding can be configured for every presence status except Do Not Disturb.

For each presence status, the type or number of the forwarding destination is displayed under My status.

In combination with the UC solution UC Suite, myPortal to go takes over the respective status-based call forwarding for each presence status in accordance with what was configured with the UC Suite client (myPortal for Desktop or myPortal for Outlook). Changes to the call forwarding destinations can only be made in the UC Suite client.

3.2.2. Visibility of Presence Status

A user can specify who is to be notified about his presence status other than Office (as well as the scheduled time of his return and any info text he has entered) via a display in the UC client (e.g., UC Smart) or via automatic voicemail announcements:

10

OpenScape Business V2

– myPortal to Go - Whitepaper

Visible only to internal subscribers (display in UC client and voicemail announcements)

 not visible

Not visible to all others

After the scheduled time for your return has passed, the announcement of this time is dropped. Your presence status remains unchanged.

3.3. CallMe Service (only with UC Suite)

The CallMe service can be used to define any phone at an alternative workplace as the CallMe destination at which a user can be reached through his internal phone number. A user can make use it to also outgoing calls from the CallMe destination.

Inbound Calls

Inbound calls to the user´s internal phone number are forwarded to his CallMe destination. User´s internal phone number is displayed to the caller. Unanswered calls are forwarded to the voicemail box after 60 seconds.

Outbound Calls

For outbound calls, the communication system sets up two connections. It first calls the user at his CallMe destination. If the user answers the call, the communication system then calls the desired destination and connects the user with it. User´s internal phone number is displayed at the destination (One Number Service).

If the intended use is set to Desk phone, no dialing can be performed with myPortal to go with CallMe enabled. If the intended use is set to Mobility, calls will be conducted with the set dialing mode on the mobile phone, regardless of the

CallMe service.

The CallMe service remains active until your Presence status changes.

5.2. General Access to OpenScape Business

In general access from the Internet to OpenScape Business can either be done via the LAN or WAN interface. Use of both interfaces in parallel is not possible, as only one default gateway can be configured for the OpenScape Business mainboard. This restriction applies for OpenScape Business X system family only. OpenScape Business S does not provide a WAN interface at the mainboard.

The Internet connection via LAN interface in combination with an external Internet router is the preferred access method from the Internet for myPortal to go:
