Aastra MX-ONE Telephony System The MX-ONE Telephony System consists of two basic components: the server and the media gateway. In the MX-ONE architecture, a server and several media gateways can be combined to form either a complete stand-alone system or used as components in a larger multi-server system.. In this release we are introducing a new media gateway (the MGU board housed in a 3U chassis called MX-ONE Lite). Aastra MX- ONE Management Suite MX-ONE offers a complete range of applications for administrators and end-users. From the users’ and an operation and maintenance point of view, MX-ONE acts as one system. Management is handled centrally in terms of operation and maintenance and the solution is based on modern principles familiar to an IT operations center. MX-ONE Manager is a complete Management Suite consisting of: MX-ONE Manager Telephony System (MTS) for configuration of system functions MX-ONE Manager Provisioning (MP) for user configuration data MX-ONE Manager Availability (MA) for system performance management MX-ONE Manager Provisioning handles all user and service related tasks for the entire solution from one and the same GUI. New users will be defined for all relevant applications, such as MX-ONE Manager Telephony System, OneBox, AMC and CMG. There is no need to switch between different tools when defining new users. MX-ONE Manager Provisioning integrates with the company IT department via a SOAP-based API or web-services to enable integration with existing IT management tools using standards based interfaces. Security is provided via TLS based HTTPS. Note: MX-ONE Manager Device that was a part of the MX-ONE Manager suite in the previous MX-ONE version has been phased out with MX-ONE Version 4.0.
