In addition the video can also be displayed on mobile devices by using the web client or in case of Apple´s iPhone using the appropriate App.
OpenStage GateView supports also scheduled recording of a video stream and the saving of recordings to a network drive.

Suiteable video cameras are not included in the ordering process Depending on the customer's requirements (e.g., LAN, WLAN, indoor/outdoor, PoE), cameras can be purchased on the open market. Instructions on integrating user-defined cameras together with a list of certified cameras as well as the technical specifications can be found at:
OpenStage Gate View FAQ.

Administration of Gate View is done via the administration portal of OpenScape Business.

As a prerequisite a UC Booster Card or OC Booster Server is required for OpenScape Buisness. Capacities of Gatev View in terms of number supported cameras and phones etc. depends on the choosen UC Booster HW. Details are described within the administration manual.

The use of Gate View is licensed controlled.

An administrator can access all network subscribers via the Single Point of Administration within the Master Node. When changes are made within the Master Node administration, the databases of the individual network nodes are automatically synchronized.

A LAN/WAN based IP network is required as prerequisite for networking. OpenScape Business systems can be networked with one another also via digital trunks. Both S0 as well as S2M lines with QSIG protocol can be used for the connection.

Within the following some essentiall networking scenarios are shown. Details, prerequisites and even more scenarios are decribed within the administration manual of OpenScape Business Documentation.


Networking Multiple OpenScape Business X1/X3/X5/X8 Systems
Up to 32 OpenScape Business communication systems can be networked with each other.

Software Delivery / Deployment

SW deployment depends on the OpenScape Business models. SW is either deployed as embedded SW or has to be ordered separately on a storage media. SW corrections are available at the Central Software Download Server of Unify, which can be accessed via the Partner Portal.

OpenScape Business X models The SW of OpenScape Business X models is delivered on a SDHC card together with the main board. SW needs not be ordered separately. In case that a UC Booster Card is required the SW is delivered on its internal storage device.

OpenScape Business UC Booster Server or OpenScape Business S The SW of OpenScape Business Booster Server or OpenScape Business S has to be ordered separately. The SW is delivered on DVD as data media.
The required operating system (Suse Linux Enterprise system (SLES)) can be obtained also from Unify.
In case, that the SLES SW is ordered from Unify, an registration key for a 3 year SW update period, granted by Novell, is included.

OpenScape Business S SW (incl. SLES) is also available as .OVA Image for virtualized machines via the software Supply Server.

Licensing

Use of OpenScape Business features is licensed. Starting with the basic system licence, additional features can be easily added, by importing appropriate license keys. License keys are providedby the Central License Server order dependent and are managed by the administration tools of OpenScape Buisness.


Activation Period
OpenScape Business supports a Licence Activation Period with full feature functionality for a time period of 30 days after first installation. After 30 days system functionality is restricted to emergency operation in case that no valid license keys have been uploaded to the system.

Evaluation Licenses
If specific functions should be tested for a time period of 90 days, so called Evaluation Licenses can be ordered.

Migration

OpenScape Business offers an easy migration path from HiPath 3000 to OpenScape Business.
Depending on the HW / SW version of HiPath 3000 existing housing, power supply and also many peripherial boards and devices can be reused.
