OpenStage is a new generation of communication devices. This slide points out the various aspects, that turn OpenStage into an outstanding device. Use this slide to talk through the different aspects of the phone. The order of the build is: Design, Key Features, Intuitive, Personalisation and Applications Design. We used a design company to help us develop the final design for OpenStage. We also asked Users from the research survey to choose between a number of potential designs – so we are confident that OpenStage will have a high degree of acceptability amongst users. OpenStage is also designed to be “industrial” in terms of its robustness – and uses high quality materials. For example, the design maximises the distance between the microphone (front left of the base unit) and the speaker (underneath the handset) to ensure high quality voice when used as a speakerphone. The acoustic chamber is also designed for to give maximum quality voice and we use not only a high quality voice codec, but also high quality microphone and speaker. The design element of the phone even extends to the handset. We flew different weight handsets around the world to establish the “optimum” weight of handset which turned out to be 150g. This is 30g heavier than the Optipoint handset – and 60g lighter than the handsets on Avaya or Cisco phones. Key Features. OpenStage has been designed to be used as a high quality speaker phone, eliminating the need for a separate dedicated (polycom) speaker phone in all but the largest offices. For larger offices OpenStage can be equipped with a separate acoustic unit. OpenStage also supports WLAN using a USB adapter. This is useful in some office environments – but is particularly designed for homeworkers whose broadband router may not be located in their home office. WLAN support means that home users do not have trail ethernet cable between their router and their home office. OpenStage also supports bluetooth. It supports object push profile – which means users can beam v.cards with contact details between their mobile phone and OpenStage, and vice versa. It also supports the bluetooth headset – so users can use the same bluetooth headset on their mobile and OpenStage – giving them freedom of movement whilst on the phone (we discounted a cordless handset at the deign stage as these are prone to being left around and can become difficult to find in an office environment). Future versions of the product will also support Gigabit ethernet and the bluetooth Car Kit profile. For example this can be used when a phone call originates on the users mobile but the user wants to route the voice to the openStage handset or speakerphone (the call itself is still carried over the mobile GSM network). OpenStage has a number of security features. The keypad can be locked so that other users cannot access personal data, it also supports 802.1X authentication and a future release will support encryption. One of the pieces of feedback that came from the survey was that phones are not easy to use. OpenStage has fixed keys for some common features (call break, re-direct, voicemail access, voice dialling, speakerphone, headset mode and mute) to make features easier to access. It also has context sensitive programmable keys that guide the user to functions such as transfer, hold and conference whilst a call is in progress. We have also incorporated and ipod like TouchGuide to help user easily navigate around the phone applications such as phone book and call log. Personalisation. Personalisation came through as a key requirement in our user study. Users can personalise the phone by downloading polyphonic ringtones, or uploading there own picture to create a personalised screen saver. Applications. OpenStage comes with somepre-loaded applications e.g. phone book and call log. It can also be used as a device to access corporate applications such as CCTV monitoring, calendar, time recording, room booking amongst many others.
In this slide you can choose to discuss the tag line “personal fixed mobile convenience” or highlight the type of devices and interfaces OpenStage offers for integration and interworking. Personal refers to the ability to personalise the phone, and personalise the applications that users can access through the phone. Fixed means that it is meant to be a device that is part of a company’s fixed communications infrastructure, and is capable of interworking with other IT elements in the fixed infrastructure ( e.g. outlook). Mobile means that it frees users from being physically connected to their phone (bluetooth headset) and that it communicates with a mobile phone (bluetooth object push and car kit profiles) Convenience refers to the fact that it is always on. The USB master (OpenStage 60, 80) can be used in the following way: Connection of the Acoustic Unit (via USB Extension) with external speaker and microphone to have much better room coverage in hands free mode (at a meeting desk e.g.) Connection of an USB memory stick to backup / restore personal phone data, like contacts, ringer tones, pictures. Useful especially in those installations where no DLS or PC are available Connection of an USB WLAN dongle to connect the OpenStage phone to the IT infrastructure Connection of a tape recorder (via USB Extension) to record call USB is an open standard for future scenarios Today OpenStage may be connected to a HiPath system via LAN Cabling. Future releases include a WLAN USB interface so you enjoy greater freedom in and outside the office. A TDM variant will be available later next year. Should you need additional line keys just expand OpenStage with the respective Key Modules and Busy Lamp fields. With bluetooth integration, you can easily keep your mobile phone, PDA or other mobile devices in sync with your desktop phone. Additionally, you can reuse your existing blue tooth headset for OpenStage. No need to invest in costly headsets anymore. Enjoy many personalization options with OpenStage Manager, the freeware software that helps you customize OpenStage with personalized sights and sound.
Use this slide to talk though the different models, which target the needs of everyone in an organisation . Model 80 has a full colour large VGA quality screen and comes in a metallic finish. Model 60 has a full colour quarter VGA screen (slightly lower definition than the 80) and does not have the metallic finish. Model 40 has a black and white screen Model 20 has a 2 line display.
Talk about the commonly available features in all models. Note: All devices are equipped with an ingetrated swich and offer full duplex hands free talking.
This slide can be used to talk through the function on the phone – and show what each key does. This slide can also be used to talk about the touch sensitive technology used on the Mode keys, the free programmable keys, and the TouchSlider that controls the volume of the ringer, the handset and the speaker phone. Note: OpenStage 80 features a larger display with a better display resolution: 6,4“ VGA Resolution: 640*480 = 307.200 pixels Silver blue metalic painted plastic, silver matte with a brushed aluminium inlay

This slide points out, that OpenStage is more than just a phone and walks you through the type of productivity enhancing applications, that could be accessed through the phone interface. It`s not just a phone - s upport your business processes and enhance productivity across your organization with OpenStage. Ever wish you could access your Outlook Calendar from the phone in the conference room? Soon you will be able to. OpenStage provides support for client-based applications, server applications and even the ability create custom applications to suit your business needs. The following explains the type of applications which can be provided through the powerful application framework: Standalone applications Application running on the phone without any interaction with other resources in the network, like graphical call handling, personal phone book, call log and call history) Client/Server applications Intelligent clients residing on the phone with access to server hosted information such as directory access via an LDAP client. Server applications Intelligent server applications provide and shape information using the OpenStage phone as input/output terminal. These include for example graphical voice mail control for HiPath Xpressions, database queries, like flight information and access to Outlook information. (coming soon) The sky is the limit OpenStage has a complete XML Application Framework for 3rd party application development

Use this slide to explain how proud we are about our new family of devices and explain in what respect our desktop phones have changed. We are really proud of our new family of devices and we believe that it is time for the deskphone to change! Why did we change from rotary diallers to push buttons (presumably to make dialling faster) – why change again? Well we now need to access phone book style information on the phone – that’s difficult using a key pad. Even though only 20%-30% of employees generally have a mobile phone provided by their business for business use – nearly everyone has got a personal mobile – and it stores a lot of their personal contact info – why not share that info with your deskphone? – it may even encourage people to stop using their mobile phone when they are in the office. Why should you need a “special” handset to use a wireless network? It makes a lot of sense to let your deskphone be wire free. Especially for home workers. Once they have a wireless router they are free to set up office anywhere in the home they want. Surely it makes economic sense to give them a phone that acts just like and extension in the office - and that doesn’t force them to run a cable from the router to the phone. Use the last point as the link into the next slide (Open)

This slide explains 3 easy methods of deploying OpenStage: Depending on the size of the rollout the methods range from manual over server to file based deployment. The Deployment Server (DLS) is the OpenStage phone's management tool. The DLS has two main areas of application: Initial installation of OpenStage phones/plug-and-play operations The Deployment Server which is made known to the phones by means of DHCP supports fully automated installation and startup for large numbers of phone. To this end, all necessary parameters are made available to the individual phones and the phone software is upgraded to the latest level. Administration of OpenStage phones The Deployment Service offers a centralized solution for storing and managing configuration data for a customer installation. Individual phone settings can be modified remotely without local intervention for individual, all or a selected group of phones. A schedule (nights, for instance) can be created for phone-specific configuration changes and software updates to ensure that live operation is not affected. The centralization of data storage means that DLS can be used to address additional customer-specific matters: • Management of all phones • Replacement of defective phones without losing specific data • Central parameterization of the security infrastructure (PKI) • SIP user mobility • Automated access over the customer's infrastructure components (access over the Web Service interface)
Use this slide to point out the areas in which OpenStage exceeds the capabilities of our main competitors in the market. This slide summarises the statements made throughout this presentation and highlights SENs unique open fixed mobile user experience.
