NEC Releases SV9500 Version 2 Software

Universe SV9500 95-112 V2 software is now available.

Continuing enhancements to the UNIVERGE® SV9500 along with new hardware components and features provide existing NEC customers solid reasons to migrate older platforms to the UNIVERGE® SV9500 as well as new customer’s requirements. NEC continues the commitment to protect existing customer investment, extend the life of the voice infrastructure and provide the latest advanced UC applications in accordance with the market needs.

1. SV9500 UMGi

The UMGi combines the features and functionality of its predecessor; the SV8500 UMG along with the features and functionality of the Remote Node over IP architecture (RNoIP). The UMGi system is configured with a Central Control Node (CCN) along with Remote Nodes (RNs). They can be located in different locations and still function as a single system. The CCN and RN can support both traditional TDM devices using either GCs/PIRs or using UG50 Gateways. Both the CCN and RN can now also support IP terminals. The UMGi supports a maximum of 16,000 IP stations and a maximum of 24,576 ports.

2. Geographical Redundancy

Geo-Redundancy allows for full survivability of the SV9500 in the event of a system failure at the main customer location. The feature gives the ability to maintain complete call control in the event there is a hardware failure or a network failure at the customer’s primary location. Geo-Redundancy functions similar to having an active-standby CPU environment but allows the ability to have the “Standby CPU” geographically at a different location than the “Active CPU”.

The Geo-Redundancy solution has three types of nodes available: Primary Node (Primary-Node), Geo Redundant Node (GR-Node), Survivable Remote Node (SR-Node),.

3. New TSW Card: SPZ-SW26A

The SV9500 Time Switch Rack in the MMG configuration has been replaced with the new SPZ-SW26A card along with a 2U Time Switch Box (TSW). The SPZ-SW26A in conjunction with the Time Switch Box replaces the functions of the Time Switch Rack (TSWR) as well as handles the functions of (4) TSW (PH-SW12s), the GT Card(PH-GT09), PLO Card(PH-CK20), and the DLKC Card (PH-PC20B). For added redundancy a second SPZ-SW26A card may be added to the system.

4. CCIS Networking via IP (C-163) Link Expansion from 64 to 252

With the release of V2 software the concurrent signaling links has been expanded from 64 concurrent links to 252 concurrent links; thus expanding the concurrent calls to different CCIS nodes to 252.

5. Enhancement to Speed Calling-One Touch Feature S-26D

End users now have an easier way to ADD/EDIT/DELETE their One-Touch Speed Dial numbers. V2 software introduces a new terminal Function Key (FKY=199: SPD Assign) that can be used instead of the previously used “Feature” key on the terminal.

6. USB Voice Recording on the DT830 Terminal

By connecting a USB memory stick to the DT830 (ITZ-12/24CG and ITZ-12/24DG) terminal the end-user can now record their conversations at the terminal to be played later. There are 2 types of recording methods to choose from: Automatic recording start or Manual recording start. When the recording starts, a recording confirmation tone will be sent to the target party every 15 seconds. However, the recording confirmation tone can also be disabled.
