I am proud to announce Kerio Operator 2.1.0 Beta 1. This version comes with several highly expected features.
Operator 2.1 comes with fax support in 3 flavors:
- T.38 support: T.38 is an ITU recommendation for the real-time transmission of faxes over IP networks. Starting with this Operator version, every extension can handle T.38 traffic and you can connect your fax machine via an ATA device that supports T.38. For best results, your SIP service provider should support T.38 as well.
- Fax to E-mail: You can enable 'fax to e-mail' on your users' extensions and have fax messages sent as PDF and TIFF attachments. You can also run the fax to e-mail service on a dedicated PBX service extension.
- PDF to Fax: For the users who need to send a fax just occasionally, the Kerio Operator client interface (aka MyPhone) allows you to send a fax by uploading a PDF file.
Integrated DHCP server
Another feature some Operator users ask for is a built-in DHCP server with a support for DHCP option 66 for automatic phone provisioning. Operator 2.1 now comes with such an integrated DHCP server.
Up to now, Operator allowed users to run one voice conference per conference extension. Beta 1 lets you switch the conference extension to a mode in which several conferences can run there, distinguished by the ID users enter.
There are several other minor but interesting changes in version 2.1 Beta 1. Let me mention just a few of them:
- The administration screens "Advanced Options" and "System" have been refactored.
- The screens "Security" and "Network" are now separate items in the menu tree.
- All grids in the administration GUI now react to keyboard commands (CTRL-F, Enter, Delete).
- The Asterisk process can be restarted from the System Health screen.
Please note that the scope for Operator 2.1 is not yet complete. The Operator team is busy working on several additional features and improvements that will appear in Beta 2/Beta 3. Also note that betas are not recommended for production deployments.
I am eager to know your feedback about this beta!
