UNIVERGE® SV8500 Business Continuity
Ensuring business continuity
Highest reliability
Business process integration
The architecture of the SV8500 is ideal for mission-critical
situations and ensures highest availability and business
continuity. Besides its flash drive technology for system
reliability with a very high MTBF, it provides IP fail-over for
stations and trunking, clustered survivability, power failure
transfer and call routing for ‘self-healing’ networks.
Advanced fault diagnosis, error-correcting memory, and
component redundancy with hot standby all add to the high
availability and operational continuity provided.
UNIVERGE® SV8500 provides open interfaces for integration
with business applications providing significantly enhanced
communications efficiency in a software-based
SOA environment.
Secure communications
In addition to providing high availability, the SV8500 offers users
a highly secure system, with advanced end-to-end encryption
on voice and signalling streams as well as authentication and
authorisation. Physically separated interfaces for management
and signalling add to the security of the solution.
“It provides power failure
transfer and call routing for
‘self-healing’ networks”
In the Unified Communications environment,
bespoke applications can be developed with NEC’s
Application Programming Interfaces for SIP, real-time call
control, SOAP call control, SOAP information and TAPI.
Standards and devices supported include SIP-enabled devices,
LDAP-compliant databases, Java and XML, Managed data
network infrastructures and UC solutions such as UC for
Business and Microsoft® OCS.
Vertical business solutions
Nowhere is business process integration more visible than in
NEC’s dominance of particular vertical markets. In key vertical
accounts such as Healthcare, Government, Education,
Hospitality, Industry, Services and Retail, NEC offers a
dedicated team of experts to craft cost-effective solutions.
UNIVERGE® SV8500 Networking
Powerful networking and easy migration
At a glance
• Powerful networking for economy and efficiency
The SV8500 provides the most advanced IP
communications, including voice, data and multimedia,
over one network. Branches or remote locations can
be seamlessly linked to share resources and features
through peer-to-peer connectivity.
Multiple UNIVERGE® SV8500 servers can be networked to
provide voice, Unified Communications and mobility solutions
for tens of thousands of users. A geographically distributed
unified system with a single ‘image’ can be created by using
NEC’s UNIVERGE® MA4000 Management System to ensure
application integration, feature transparency and survivability
in the event of network failures.
Migration protects investments
The SV8500’s interoperability protects investment in earlier
NEC products. Using both FCCS (Fusion) and CCIS networking
for seamless integration, the SV8500 can be networked with
other NEC products, including the NEAX 2000, the SV7000
and the SV8300.
• Up to 192,000 ports in a single network
• Support for VoIP and traditional voice
• Simplified management and reduced
Total Cost of Ownership
• Interoperability protects investments
Thanks to the ability to accommodate for existing systems
such as SV7000 and/or NEAX 2400 systems, the UNIVERGE®
SV8500 provides existing customers with an excellent growth
path to full IP.
Existing customers with NEC’s legacy systems will also
experience minimal impact to the organisation when migrating
to the SV8500, thanks to the use of familiar features and
programming, avoiding the need for additional training.
Migrating to the SV8500 gives you access to expanded features
that help you become more agile, compete on a larger scale
and improve customer satisfaction.

UNIVERGE® SV8500 UC for Business
Presence and collaboration
With organisations becoming increasingly fragmented,
departments more flexible and employees more mobile,
collaboration is a means of enabling them to work
together, in real time, and interact efficiently and
effectively with each other, with clients and suppliers.
Presence is about being able to share one’s availability
status so everyone is aware of it and can act accordingly.
Our all-in-one Unified Communications suite helps unify an
entire organisation, enabling individuals, departments and
locations to work more efficiently by ensuring seamless internal
and external communications. Users can connect from
wherever they are via phones, PCs, mobile devices and
the web effortlessly.
Offering all the advanced communications functionality you
need, including call control and group information, voicemail,
directory services, operator and call routing. Simple and
cost-effective to deploy, three user modes – knowledge worker,
operator and contact centre agent – use the same server, a
single database and with a common user interface, and are
managed from a central point.
Good reasons for presence
and collaboration
• Unified Communications for an affordable price.
• Presence Reporting allows managers to monitor activity of
their team, helping to enhance employee performance.
• Simplified call handling - users manage all their
communications from their desktop.
• Easily customised for individual company requirements
• Treat the mobile and the desk phone as a single device,
using one number.
• Very easy to use and hardly requires any end-user training.
One intuitive user interface shows the relevant items on the
screen, depending on your role.
• Contact Centre’s can create a consistent customer
experience with a single point of contact for voice calls
and emails.
UNIVERGE® SV8500 Mobility
Mobile UC
NEC’s mobility application UCB Executive Mobile
provides you with advanced UC functionality on the
one communications device you always carry with you
- your mobile smart phone. It allows you to always be
in control of your communications, even when you’re
out of the office.
This includes access to your landline information via your smart
phone, so you can see at a glance who has called your desk
phone. It enables you to scroll through your messages listed by
name, select the ones you want to hear and listen to them at
the press of a button. It also provides you with access to the
Corporate Contact Directory to find any number you need,
whether it’s for a colleague or a customer.
Presence on the move
Presence functionality enables you to see whether your
colleagues are at their desk before you call them or when
they’re set to return. You request a “call me,” dial them,
or send an SMS. Additionally, you can remotely control
your own presence availability information.
Increased reachability
Whether you’re in or out of the office, NEC allows you to remain
contactable on one number, no matter the device you are using.
Callers will no longer need to leave messages for you, get
transferred to a colleague or call multiple numbers hoping to
catch you as you’re on the move.
“Enjoy high quality voice
communications and
directory access, as if
you were at the office”

UNIVERGE® SV8500 Environmental
Green goes hand in hand with lower TCO
NEC has always been at the forefront when it comes to
technological innovations, many of which are related to
environmental protection.
Our commitment to innovation drives technology
developments and product portfolio improvements which,
in turn, contribute to a better environment.
The SV8500 is an ecologically sound, compact system
that uses 23% less power than previous generations of IP
communication servers. NEC provided special attention to its
environmental impact and delivered a RoHS compliant system
that includes:
• Reduced air conditioning requirements for the server
• Recyclable materials and components using environmentally
safe chemicals
• Elimination of lead and mercury in circuit boards
• User documentation provided in electronic format rather
than on paper
Besides leading in green initiatives the reduced power
consumption and environmentally-friendly components
also deliver lower total cost of ownership. Customers will
appreciate the organisational productivity gains the system
provides, delivering savings with facilities such as multi-user
voice conferencing and softphones, and comprehensive
ways to control operating expenses.
