Main article: HiPath OpenOffice EE open interfaces.
- First time delivered with HiPath OpenOffice EE V1 is an “easy to use” Open Interface based on HTTP(S) commands to control common CSTA telephony features.
- This "easy to use" open Interface is especially designed for web programmers to create their own customized applications, for e.g. IT Partner which can generate "Value Add" for their customers by integrate customized functions in their business processes.
- Together with this Interface there comes along a Software and Development Kit (SDK) which provides descriptions how to use this Interface.
ITSP connection using the SIP Protocol
The Internet Telefonie Service Provider (ITSP) market is growing rapidly and with it the number of offered services and business models. HiPath OpenOffice EE V1 supports ITSP connections with registration of single station numbers, which is the most commonly offered provider interface for private customers today, and smaller communications solutions for medium sized businesses.
DSL telephony system connections are supported in larger system configurations. The ITSP provides the customer with a station number range. The system registers with the ITSP and all stations are automatically registered in the process.
HiPath OpenOffice EE V1 permits the connection of standalone systems and networked systems to Internet Telephony Service Providers
