CudaTel VOIP Features
Automatic Phone Provisioning

Extensions, phone numbers and DIDs can be easily be assigned to a group of users.
SIP phone and provider support CudaTel Communication Server supports SIP for both provider services (telephone company) as well as end user devices (phones, software clients). Any SIP compliant service or device can be integrated with the appliance.
Automated Attendant (IVR)
Incoming calls can be automatically handled and processed using the built-in Automated Attendant. Using an intuitive Web interface, administrators can configure the flexible engine to ring specific extensions, groups of users, direct to system functions or off-site phone lines, consider time of day and user presence and schedule.

Option models of the CudaTel Communication Server come preconfigured and optimized with best-of-breed telephony company integration (TDM) hardware. All optional systems come with onboard echo cancellation, and support for 4 analog incoming lines up to quad T1s.
Call monitoring, barging, and bridging
Administrators or enabled users may monitor system calls, interrupt calls, and merge multiple calls together.

High definition voice quality
Using supported phones, the CudaTel Communication Server provides unmatched voice quality. High Definition (near cd-quality) audio is delivered through the G.722, G.722.1, G.722.1c codecs.
Administrators can set policy to record incoming, outgoing, or all calls associated with a user, group, location, or system. On-board storage is used and additional storage can be integrated using an NFS or SMB share.
Incoming and outgoing calls can be routed based on administrator preference. Operations such as dialing prefixes, least cost routing, and off-system PBX integration can be seamlessly integrated to minimize user confusion.
Scheduled call routing
Calls can be follow a path or route based on time of day, day of week, or arbitrary schedule.
Users can be located using the CudaTel Communication Server's follow-me features. Multiple phones and lines are run at the same time, falling back to a unified voice mail system, assuring road warriors and business travelers can always be reached, while giving the caller the impression of a fully integrated business phone.
Calls can be temporarily parked or stored for pick-up from other system users.
Active Directory and LDAP integration
CudaTel Communication Server integrates with LDAP deployments such as Windows Active Directory and Novell e-Directory. Integration makes user import, sync, membership, and authentication automatic, preventing manual entry errors and enabling seamless integration with business IT systems.
Local Users, Groups, and Policy
Administrators can choose to setup and deploy users, groups and policy locally on the box. If using built-in system DHCP, the CudaTel Communications Server is the only network appliance needed on the LAN.
Automatic Extension and phone number (DID) assignment
LDAP synced and local users can be automatically assigned extensions and phone numbers (DIDs) - saving valuable administrator time and system configuration errors.
Mutiple Communication Servers can be linked to multiple sites or locations for an integrated multi-site single phone system.
Encrypted VOIP support
As voice security becomes a great security threat, the CudaTel Communication Server has integrated technology to encrypt voice transactions. With supported phones and built-in Secure RTP and TLS support, voice calls can be encrypted and secured -- assuring hackers are not monitoring calls on the network.
