Evotec is a proud Unify Premier Partner and we strongly believe that OpenScape Business V2 is one the world’s best business phone systems.

OSBizV2 has a long list of features to reduce business costs and make your staff more efficient – for example:

  • mobile phone clients for free calls via office phone system
  • presence visibility – so you know what people are doing before you call them
  • use mobile phones in WIFI areas
  • 16-party dial-in or add-hoc conferencing for quick, inclusive and decisive meetings
  • call centre to service customers better
  • call log
  • electronic fax
  • instant messaging etc.
  • Now supports Windows 10!

All features and applications are built inside one server – other systems use different servers for different apps, increasing complexity and cos. With OSbiz V2, we just enable a license and configure it.

With OSBiz V2 Web Collaboration, you can see multliple video of participants on computer screens, and mobile devices to run presentations and share documents. Invite your clients in a video call just by sending them an email while on a call.

Another productivity-enhancing function is the ability to link your own customer database to the phone system so your customer’s name and organisation is displayed before you answer a call

And OSBiz V2 is completely NBN-ready and able to give you significant savings using SIP carriers.

For Multi-site organisations, Openscape Business can enable all handsets across all sites to be connected to the phone system creating a “one office” feeling for all users.

We can provide built-in redundancy and security, dual power supply, dual hard drive and VMware back up. In the event of a utility power failure at the main site, calls to the main system will distribute to other sites. Gateway systems can operate even if private network link goes down.

With Unify, receptionists can use a built-in app to see who is busy on a call and easily transfer calls to any user within the company. Automatic client contact details update while on call allowing any future calls to display client name before answering. This makes it easy for receptionists to answer calls for different sites.OSBizV2 430x292

Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) – Middleware

Many CTI and CRM applications on the market use the Microsoft TAPI interface for connecting to the telephone system. With OpenScape Business TAPI 120 V1 and OpenScape Business TAPI 170 V1, two new and powerful TAPI Service Providers (TSP), which are optimised for the system architecture and network topology of OpenScape Business, are now available for connecting TAPI-based applications in addition to the CallBridge Collection.

The choice of the appropriate TAPI Service Provider essentially depends on the number of client PCs to be connected with TAPI applications as well as the existing IT infrastructure and the phone devices used.

CallBridge Collection

– is used as a traditional first-party TAPI Service Provider on system terminals that have a LAN or USB interface. It is suitable for installations with just a few PCs. A LAN is not necessary for the operation of the CallBridge Collection. The CallBridge Collection is installed on each PC that is running a TAPI application. Analog, Cordless and system devices without USB/IP interfaces are not supported. TAPI connections via the CallBridge Collection are not licensed

OpenScape Business TAPI 120

– is used as the preferred first-party TAPI Service Provider in Microsoft networks with or without a domain controller when analog, Cordless and system devices without IP/USB interfaces are also to be operated in conjunction with TAPI applications. The TAPI 120 Service Provider is installed on each PC client that is running a TAPI application. Connections via TAPI 120 are subject to licensing within OpenScape Business. To connect to OpenScape Business, only one CSTA link is required, regardless of how many TAPI 120 clients are being operated.

OpenScape Business TAPI 170

– is a classic “third-party” TAPI Service Provider that is installed on a server on the LAN and connected centrally to the OpenScape Business System. TAPI 170 can be used as an alternative to TAPI 120 if there is a domain controller in the Microsoft network. When using the so-called remote TAPI function, it is not necessary to install the TAPI Service Provider on the client PCs. This offers significant time savings in installations with many client PCs.
Please note, however, that the use of OpenScape Business TAPI 170 is mandatory in the following scenarios:

  • Connection of TAPI stations in networked OpenScape Business systems when the TAPI stations are located in different nodes.
  • Connection to TAPI applications running on a terminal server
  • Connection to server-based TAPI applications

OpenScape Business TAPI 170 is subject to licensing within OpenScape Business. To connect to OpenScape Business, one CSTA link is required, regardless of how many TAPI 170 stations are being operated.

Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) – Protocols

For direct access to Telefony Function serveral protocols are available:

CSTA protocol

The CSTA protocol enables the connection of high-performance CTI, Contact Centre and Unified Communication applications etc. to OpenScape business.

It supports:

  • Access via Ethernet LAN (TCP / IP)
  • CSTA Phase III ASN.1 encoded by:
    • ECMA-269 Services for Computer Supported Telecommunications Applications (CSTA) Phase III
    • Standard ECMA-285ASN.1 for Computer Supported Telecommunications Applications (CSTA) Phase III
    • Wide range of system telephones
    • Network-wide monitoring and control of all resources
    • Multiplexing of monitor points.


Administration of OpenScape Business is done mainly via Web Based Management (OpenScape Business Assistant) or you can use Manager.


Use of OpenScaoe Business features is licensed. Starting with the basic system licence, additional features can be easily added remotely, to add any additional functionality you require.

Easy migration path

OpenScape Business offers an easy migration path from HiPath 3000 to OpenScape Business.
Depending on the version of your HiPath 3000 existing housing, the power supply and many peripherial boards and devices can be reused.
For many migrations, only the mainboard, system software and license file need to be upgraded.
