The DLS (Deployment Service) mobility feature is an advanced feature that is controlled and configured via a separate DLS server. Using the DLS server permits the creation of mobility-enabled devices, which are able to provide the user interface configured for the mobile user when the subscriber logs on to it.
For example, the mobility-enabled device provides:
All personal data, such as call numbers, passwords, and privileges
The subscriber's customized key configuration and layout
Advanced user data such as caller lists and display module data
Accurate status indications for all Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony-based features, including call forwarding and DND (Do Not Disturb)
Access to hunt group functionality
DLS mobility is one of the Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony features that provides support for mobility solutions. It allows enterprises with many mobile workers to reduce overall office space, while still providing employees with comfortable workspaces when they are in the office.This feature is applicable to OpenStage and most optiPoint telephones.
Guidelines for Implementation and Use
A dedicated Mobile User DN is required for any mobility-enabled user. This DN is registered at Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony as long as the mobile user is logged on at any mobility-enabled device.
A mobile user can optionally be assigned a non-mobile telephone (home device). If a home device is assigned, the mobility-enabled device takes on its characteristics when the subscriber registers to it.
If a home device is present, it must be located on the same DLS server as the mobility-enabled device.
DLS mobility supports interworking between OpenStage and optiPoint telephones. This permits a user with an OpenStage home device to use an optiPoint telephone as the mobility-enabled device, and vice versa.
It is recommended that non-managed user data - for example, screen savers, logos, ring tones - be minimized for mobile users. The size of the non-managed user data has significant effects on DLS performance and the number of supported mobile users.
DLS Mobile User licenses must be ordered for all mobile user DNs before they can be configured in the DLS server. According to the Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony dynamic licensing model, which builds on concurrently registered DNs, the mobile user DNs do not require additional Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony dynamic user licenses.
System Specific Information
Depending on the type of DLS server present, up to 100,000 mobile users and 100,000 mobility-enabled devices are supported.
