Vertical Wave IP 500

As your business evolves, so do your communications requirements. When making an investment in an IP phone system, your business demands a cost-effective solution that:

  • Provides outstanding value in the core business applications you need today, such as desktop call management, unified messaging, call recording, fax and auto attendant.
  • Lets you selectively run advanced applications to address future business opportunities and improve customer service, such as self-service interactive voice response (IVR) applications and contact center — without costly additional servers.
  • Supports thousands of sites but is easy to manage, reducing administrative time and costs.

What’s more, today’s IP phone system must also deliver investment protection by:

  • Leveraging your investment in the phones your employees use today — such as IP, digital or analog phones and devices — as well as soft phones, voice badges and other voice-enabled devices you may use in the future.
  • Creating a seamless call experience for both staff and callers, whether employees work in the office, at home, or on the road.
  • Facilitating the growth of your business cost-effectively, by letting you add users and applications in a modular and straightforward way, without requiring expensive forklift upgrades or additional servers.
  • Reducing network and voice costs by leveraging integrated voice and data connectivity services like SIP trunking.
    Whether you have a handful of employees or hundreds, and whether they’re located in one office or distributed across the country, the future of your business depends on the smart choices you make today. Vertical Wave — It’s the Right Call.™

A Rich Heritage of Design
Vertical Wave is the result of more than two years and millions of dollars of research and development investment by Vertical Communications, a leader in next-generation IP telephony solutions. Based on proven technologies that have met the needs of demanding customers, and featuring a range of brand-new capabilities, Wave is the reflection of Vertical’s rich heritage of technical innovation and its ongoing commitment to enhancing customer communications.

Unlike solutions that offer support for adding IP applications at a later date, but which require additional servers and other components — not to mention long deployment schedules and business disruption — Wave is unique in its Applications Inside™ architecture. Wave’s portfolio of embedded applications is included “in the box” with every Wave IP 500 system. You choose what you need, when you need it.

Base Applications
Base applications, such as Auto Attendant, Call Recording and Unified Messaging, are included at no extra cost. Wave ViewPoint™, the award-winning desktop communications tool, is included for all users, providing control over every aspect of every call on both the PC desktop and the telephone.

  • ViewPoint Desktop Call Management: ViewPoint is the intuitive call handling software that makes it easy to place and transfer calls and manage contacts with drag-and-drop simplicity. ViewPoint imports contacts from your Microsoft Outlook directory, making it easy to search for phone numbers. Make and share notes about a particular call, and bookmark sections of a voicemail message to identify critical parts of a call.
  • Visual Voicemail: View and manage your voicemail messages using ViewPoint. Wave Voicemail supports up to 10,000 mailboxes.
  • Unified Messaging: Let users manage email and voicemail messages through a single desktop interface such as Outlook.
  • Presence Management: Using ViewPoint, check the availability of everyone using Wave. Confirm if a colleague is at a meeting, traveling or available by phone before initiating a call or conference or forwarding a call to that individual.
  • Call Recording Record all calls, calls on demand, or on a customized schedule with a single mouse click to confirm customer orders, support compliance efforts and facilitate training and coaching.
  • Auto Attendant Provide a professional call experience by directing prospects, customers and business partners to the right person or department, without the intervention or cost of an operator.
  • Wave Global Administrator™ This intuitive, Web-based management tool makes it easy to set up the system, handle moves, adds and changes, and administer applications licenses. Global Administrator includes robust diagnostic and monitoring capabilities.

  • Wave Contact Center™ Optimized for any business unit that interacts with customers such as technical support, inside sales, and customer service. Wave Contact center agents can be located wherever there is an Internet connection — at headquarters, in a branch office, or at home. Agents use the same ViewPoint application with which they are already familiar. Administrators maximize customer satisfaction and agent performance with enterprise-level contact routing and queuing. Advanced monitoring and reporting on virtually any aspect of contact center operations are included.
  • Wave Conference Manager™ Provides complete “meet me” conferencing support for up to 60 parties, plus unlimited “listen only” conferencing, without the added costs of a third-party conference service provider. Users can also create multi-party conferences on the fly using ViewPoint.

  • Wave Voice Server™ This fully-integrated voice application server enables you to develop and deploy customer-friendly business-enhancing, self-service applications. As business needs evolve, use Wave Voice Server to create your own library of value-added speech-enabled applications.

Management Tools
Wave Global Administrator, included with Wave, provides a broad range of management and diagnostic capabilities. If your employees are distributed among multiple locations, or if you require multi-site reporting for your organization, you may consider these optional Wave management tools.

  • Wave Global Manager™ This powerful Web-based multi-site management tool complements Wave Global Administrator by allowing you to track, schedule and automate routine system maintenance tasks, such as backups and software upgrades.
  • Wave Global Reporter™ Automates the collection and analysis of call detail information for a single system or across a network of systems at multiple locations.
