Features

Integration with Lync/Skype for Business Server

Kinnex Media Gateway acts as a full functional client for Lync/SfB Server on the one hand and as a registrar for IP phones on the other. It adapts protocols and functions of each IP phone to the Lync requirements, allowing users to take advantage of the full range of Lync features.

Optimal infrastructure

Protect and extend your investments! Kinnex Media Gateway allows you to select the most suitable IP phones for your employees. The optimal internal architecture based on the Kinnex VoIP Engine allows you to effectively use server resources and easily integrate the solution in the Lync/SfB topology.

Centralized management

Kinnex Media Gateway is configured automatically while installing using existing Lync/SfB Server topology. For group management of IP phones, we designed the abilities to install and upgrade firmware, provision settings, block device access, gather statistics and monitoring.

Advanced capabilities

We also provide advanced capabilities for IP phone pools connected to Kinnex Media Gateway such as Paging, Intercom, and Hot Line. These increase usability and make employee collaboration more effective.

Security

Kinnex Media Gateway includes support for SRTP (Secure Real-time Transport Protocol) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocols for encrypting SIP and RTP (media streams) traffic between IP phones and Lync/SfB Server.

Depending on the number of IP phones and telephony usage, Kinnex Media Gateway can be installed on a dedicated server as well as on existing PC with one of Lync/SfB topology server role. Collocation is possible along with the Standard Edition Server, Mediation Server or SBA/SBS.
