The Media Server can execute different internal media applications to provide the user with extended media services. These media applications are configured via the Media Server settings.
Media applications are available in the Media Server only if the Media Server is used under Telephony Application Server.
The Media Server currently realizes the following internal media applications:
The so-called address bindings determine under which phone number a media application can be reached.
A so-called terminal is assigned the URI of a media application and at least one phone number expression. This results in an individual assignment of URI and phone number expressions.
The terminal is solely a logical configuration unit within the Media Server. It can be best compared with the logical configuration of a terminal device in a PBX, which is also assigned specific attributes – e. g. phone numbers.
Specify different properties that determine the communication behavior of the relevant address binding.
The binding attributes include, for example, security and codec settings.
Specify media-application-individual settings transferred to the relevant media application when being invoked.
Via these settings you can e. g. control the default language of the voice portal. General properties influence only the behavior of the media application and do not serve any other purpose in the Media Server.
Each general property consists of a key and an associated value. The key determines the property that is controlled; the value determines the setting of the relevant property.
Example: The voice portal is to start with the Chinese TUI under a specific address binding.
At least one phone number expression
Each phone number expression specifies at least one phone number under which the relevant media application is to be reached in the OpenScape Media Server.
Specify phone numbers always fully qualified in the GNF format when you use the Media Server at Telephony Control Server – example: +492404901100.
Conference Portal of the Media Server
The conference portal is automatically installed with the Media Server. With the conference portal the Media Server provides conference rooms in which users can gather and hold audio conferences. Users may deploy any telephone or softphone as terminal device.
Voice Portal of the Media Server
The voice portal is automatically installed with the Media Server. It provides users with a telephone user interface (TUI), via which the users can access the comprehensive Unified Communications services of Telephony Application Server. The user operates this telephone user interface via the keypad of his/her telephone.
